Re: 2015 National Serger Month Giveaway

I would like to learn how to use my serger for more than just overlocking seams.

Re: Enter Our Huge Quilting Giveaway

My first quilt was a whole cloth, oversized twin quilt, back in 1970. I was a Jr. in High School and machine quilted a pattern based on a quilt I saw in a local store. I used it all through college. Sewing was my passion then, and still is today.

Re: Re-create Couture Pleated Silk Organza Panels

Nice detail work! If you want to see a close up of the inspiration dress, hold down your Ctrl key while you rotate your mouse button to scroll and increase the size of the page, you should be able to see the yoke and hemline details much better in the picture.

Re: Enter to Win a One-Year Subscription to Threads!

This is a great magazine for me. I sew everything and Threads always has articles that I can relate to. I take advantage of the online Tutorials as well.

Re: Finding Fabric Shops in Paris

A friend bought fabric in Paris last September in shops we found listed online. She was able to find several pieces of fabric to purchase. The stores she went to did not sell by the yard, but by the piece. We are delighted with our purchases.

Re: Mega Quilt Giveaway

I would have to say that my greatest quilting experience was completing a twin size quilt while I was a senior in high school. It wasn't a very popular hobby back in 1970, but it was my first, and it was a springboard to lots more quilting adventures.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Quick Stuff to Sew"

Quick and easy gifts and projects would be a nice way to teach someone else to sew. It would give them the confidence to try some new techniques.

Re: Book Giveaway: Successful Serging

I want to be more creative with my serger. I only use it for seam finishing, but I know they can do a lot more.
