Re: ASDP Quilted Garment Challenge

I read about the audience reaction to Amanda Madden's beautiful dress and I wish there was a video to show how the dress moves. All of these clothing creators should be applauded on their gorgeous garments. I would have chosen Amanda's outfit, too.

Re: Using Buttons as Embellishment

As kenneth said, it's his jacket, and he designed it for himself. That said, I'd wear it! In fact, I have a small stash of buttons and this gives me some thoughts as to what to do with some of them. I appreciate the ideas on shrinkage and the canvas underlayer. Good job!

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

I thought I was too late for this, but I'm glad I'm not! I got into "Threads" late and while it's great being able to find things online, it would be so cool to have the things I missed. And my magazine collection is getting bulky and beat up a CD set would sure help out this sewer!

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Quick Stuff to Sew"

Last year I found some Betty Boop material and made my mom Betty a camp shirt. My two brothers saw it and both wanted the same kind of shirt, one in Hawaiian material and one with "flames" material... so I'm going to oblige them. And if I could find material with "Popeye" I'd make my younger sister a shirt, too.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Underwear Fashion in Detail"

I think that undergarments such as Spanx are pretty neat. When I was ten my mom got me a girdle. I tried it on once and stuffed into the bottom of my bottom drawer and never touched it again. But they were supposed to hold up your stockings and hold you in. I was a skinny child - holding in wasn't my problem!

Re: Support Independent Fabric Dealers

We are in the same boat here. Even though I live in an area where quilting and sewing are common, we only have the chain stores to shop, and they are a couple hours drive away at best. I have only had my home computer for a couple of years, but I am LOVING being able to shop online. I miss being able to feel the fabrics, however. When we travel I always look for non-chain fabric stores.
