Until the end of 1986 this was published six times a year as the F.D.G. newsletter, since then it has been published quarterly as "Flydresser". The subtitle changed several times over the years however for the sake of simplicity and order we have catalogued all of our copies with the original subtitle. A great source of new patterns and information with good articles by many well-known names.
