Congratulations to the member who was randomly selected in our current giveaway. DianeHilton will receive a copy of Sarai Mitnick's The Colette Sewing Handbook. The topics covered in the book include: sewing techniques, planning and fitting, working with patterns, working with fabrics, working with linings, and finishing techniques.

Five patterns are neatly tucked in a pocket attached to the inside back cover. The packet includes patterns for a scalloped-hem skirt, a flutter-sleeve blouse, a sweetheart-neck sheath dress, an asymmetrical-flounce dress, and a lined dress with gathered sleeves. Each project will help you put the fundamentals into practice as you sew.

If you missed out on this great book, don't worry. We are giving away another copy this week to one lucky fan on Facebook!

Simply visit us on Facebook and hit the "Like" button before 11:59 a.m., EST, December 14, and you could be chosen at random to win.

Some people do enjoy the community over on Facebook, and we'd like to be part of that conversation as well. It is completely up to you how you would like to be part of the Threads community, but this book giveaway was a second chance to win. We gave away a copy of The Colette Sewing Handbook right here last week. We have no plans to stop giving away these great sewing products right here on our website, so don't worry about missing out.
