Threadbared is a fun read!

I really enjoyed the Threadbared book! I was a fan of the authors' web site and was so excited to purchase the book. I have it on my coffee table at home and guests always enjoy flipping through it. We can all relate to looking back through old photos laughing at hairstyles and outfits. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to laugh.

Popular Blog turns out witty book

I love reading Threadbared's blog -- and I thoroughly enjoyed the snarky sarcasm in this book. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is because there are too many times that the humor is based on the colors in the photo -- only for us the reader -- all of the photos are in black and white. Hey gals -- when you get ready to write another book (and I certainly hope you will), try to look at the photos in black and white and re-read your original entries. It'll help you weed out the ones that only make sense in color. (or you could publish the book in color -- but that's probably too pricey of an option.)

Very funny book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I laughed until I cried. The pictures are great and the commentary is hilarious. Don't be fooled by the title; you don't need to be into crafts to love this book! It's all about the giggles.

Will Keep You In Stitches!

Not sure what the negative reviews are all about - this book is hilarious! I've been a fan of the Threadbared website for over a year now and was so excited that they had a book coming out! The photos and illustrations are great (how can you not love a "manotard?") and the accompanying text is laugh-outloud funny. What this book is not: a pattern book or a serious analysis of sewing/craft trends. What this book is: a very FUN read and one that would make a great gift for any craft-lover with a sense of humor!
