    I've been unable to sew for several years. I'm burshing up on my sewing skills and I find the teach yourself to sew video's so helpful. During the time I was unable to sew I've enjoyed reading Threads from cover to cover. It's great to be back. Please never stop the videos they're great reference material.

    Thank you,
