Whenever I need a good laugh, I visit  Threadbared and I strongly suggest you do too!   The two women responsible for the clever, cutting commentary on this hilarious website describe it as the way to combine their fondness of vintage patterns with their need to be bitchy, mean and cruel.  They’ve even got a book out called Threadbared-Decades of Do’s and Don’t from the Sewing and Crafting World .

A few highlights from the site- model wearing 70s weblike crocheted wrap being compared to a black widow spider called watch out boys she’ll chew you up…. , Barbie’s New Years resolutions titled, Lose Weight. Stop Smoking. End Relationship With Bland, Anatomically Incorrect Boyfriend Of 46 Years   and commentary on 80s workout wear described as the attack of the bodythings.

For knitting mixed with a little nastiness, sewing with a touch of sarcasm and vintage with a vicious twist, this site, like their book, is one heck of a fun filled read.
