Re: The Perfect Blouse DVD Giveaway

My favorite was a blouse, ironically! I had a lot of help from ASG members at a retreat though, and have not sewn one that fits since.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Secret Garden Embroidery" by Sophie Simpson

I definitely love flowers.

Re: Kaffe Fassett Book Giveaway

I'll see something pretty someone has designed and that inspires me to make my own, or I'll find the perfect fabric or a great sale!

Re: The Perfect Blouse DVD Giveaway

I sewed a top, my first one, with a lot of help and it fit perfect! That was so fun and exciting. It was a buttoned cotton blouse.

Re: 2015 National Serger Month Giveaway

I rarely use my serger and I know if I learn some techniques I would use it much more often.

I sew crooked 1/4" seams and then the pieces don't match up and I lose the points.

My first quilt was a sampler at a quilt class. It is still hanging over my bed.

I've made pretty quilts for the wall and pillows for the bed to decorate our bedrooms.

I like the collared peplum top. It would be flattering for my figure.

I like the feminine details in view B. I would need size 12-20.

I like to make comfortable shirts that look tailored.

Re: Second Annual National Serger Month Celebration and Giveaway

I used it to fix some knitted barbie dresses. I needed to make them smaller to fit the waste so I sewed a seam down the back. So, I've found out I can use it for my knitted clothing!

This will be great to make socks fit exactly.

"Make Your Own Clothes" because it allows me alter clothing to my size and print the included patterns with the included software.

I really want to learn to sew clothes. Pre-made patterns don't fit me, and starting from scratch to learn the right way to make clothes will be great!

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Press straight up and down when ironing quilt pieces. I'll use the new iron to press quilt pieces without worrying about scorching them.

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Press down and up, not side to side, when piecing quilts. I will use the iron to press quilts, it should be easier to use than my heavy iron!

I love those big old skirts that required a hoop, Like Scarlett O'Hara's dresses, but not necessarily the green velvet one made from drapes!

I made fleece socks for hubby last year, but haven't decided what to make him this year. Maybe a fleece vest with sleeves, since he's a biker.
