Re: Book Giveaway: "Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing"

I grew up in the 70's and learned to sew vintage styles from vintage patterns (what I would not give to have them now!). I would love to learn better techniques to make my sewing even better.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: The Best of Threads Fitting

wearing a 42FF/G bra and very square shoulders. Everything I make requires extensive alterations :( I would love to know how to make things look more professionally tailored to me.

Re: Summer Dress Patterns

Agree with Reetah, it's about time! I recently bought one of their patterns with the cup size options and was so pleased with being able to make smaller adjustments to fit my DDD size. First time in a long time I have even purchased a Butterick pattern because of the major adjustments in the past took away the pleasure of sewing. I hope they continue to make this option and add additional patterns to the lineup!!

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: Spring 2011 SewStylish

I plan to try to work through my fabric stash and finally create those items that the fabric was originally bought to make. I have been unemployed for a year and a half, so most everything I have was bought to make work clothes. Of course, that was my plan last spring too. Maybe I need a new magazine for inspiration???

Re: Add Your Input to the Sewing Group and Gathering List

I agree with Karakins, I use PatternReview.com as a resource frequently and enjoy it greatly. I like Puyallup, although I wish the attendees were less pushy. Everytime I go, I come home with bruises because people do not want to allow someone to look at an item if they haven't already. I understand everything is exciting and it is wonderful to get to meet with all of the experts, authors and stars, but pushing people out of the way to get to them is ridiculous. Does this occur at all shows?
