I purchased the Threads Magazine Archive DVD and received it yesterday. I have the magazine issues 60-146, but the DVD includes issues 1-146 and is so easy to search. You can search by title, subtitle, keywords, author, department for every magazine all at once and this includes ads. You can even look at the table of contents of an individual magazine and set you own index of "favorites". This is going to be a great sewing resource and I will make much better use of the magazine.

i too received it as a gift and have had so much fun going thru old issues!  what i loved about the earlier editions is that they included so much more than just sewing and fabric, they had knitting, by hand and machine, spinning, weaving, etc--all kinds of other textile crafts.

I gifted myself with it! I had all of the issues. But, I live in an 800 square foot cabin, so space is a BIG issue. Plus, I really wanted the search capabilities. So I sold my paper collection, and bought the DVD collection. I am very happy I did. I reference it a lot, more, because I just search right on my computer. It is a bit spendy, but since I sew for a living, it is, to me, an essential reference guide.

BTW - does anybody know if they will do yearly updates?

I've also purchased this product. As well as finding it a useful resource, some of the old ads are pretty funny. One was advertising some knitting software that would work on a computer with a minimum of 192kb. Some of the 80's clothes look pretty far-out now. I can't believe I dressed like that.

Thank you all for your comments. I purchased the disc but haven't yet received it and of course have been wondering if I did the "right" thing. It certainly sounds like it and I am even more looking forward to receiving it.
