  1. My son recently moved from Tampa to north-central Wisconsin. I was helping out by doing laundry at a local laundromat and thumbed through your July 2016 issue. Your article "Material Girl" caught my eye - particularly the sketches by the young designer. That's because they reminded me of my late aunt who had made a similar design in her first fabric design class in 1952 at the University of Illinois. Alas, my aunt did not become a designer, but your article brought back sweet memories of my aunt and the fabric she designed, produced and then sewed into a stylish dress. I'd like to get a back issue of the July 2016 edition. Is that possible?
