Selvedge would be nothing without our community of textile lovers and supporters. Over the years we've received some lovely comments from our community about the reflective time and joy, as well as strong and fond memories that people have developed through receiving the magazine.
"My gran gave me the subscription, she has always made her own clothes and taught me to knit when I was five. In fact she probably inspired me to go to art school in the first place. She has a subscription for herself and we often talk about articles when we chat on the phone..."
"My father-in-law have bought me a gift subscription ever Christmas since I started going out with my now husband. He did not know me that well at first, but got the gift just right and sharing the magazine helped us get to know each other. "
"I work in a haberdashery shop on a Saturday and my boss bought a subscription for everyone in the team - we are all crazy about textiles and love the magazine."
We love to hear about your experiences of Selvedge Magazine. Why not leave a message in the comments and tell us all about it - we can't wait to hear from you.
Don't forget that the first issue of a gift subscription arrives wrapped in patterned 'Selvedge Stitch' paper, created by Cambridge Imprint. The pattern aims to conjure the charm of hand stitching.
