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

Oh how I would love to win this book!! I belong to a hand stitch club and we're always looking for techniques for stiching. We are all avid gardeners and love to play in the dirt. Thanks for the opportunity.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Suede to Rest"

I love to read and sew & shop for fabric. Being able to combine all this is a definite treat. Favorite stories are mysteries. So fun to try to figure out the outcome. Would love to add your book to my library. Thanks for the opportunity.

Re: Free Patterns for Three Apron Styles

I've never seen so much drama over an apron!
Threads is nice enough to give us free patterns,
if it's that difficult to figure out buy a pattern.

Re: Simplicity Patterns: Early Spring 2014 Review & Givewaway!

Love #1467!!I haven't sewn in years & now retired want to get back into it. I could make in numerous fabrics both dress & casual. My closet needs a do over for the coming months of heat and this pattern will definitely get a lot of use. Keep up the good work and thank you for coming up with this pattern.

Re: How to Add a Sheer Kick Pleat

Why would anyone want this? Have to agree with everyone else on this one. Pretty ugly skirt.Same fabric should be used for kick pleat instead of that heavy looking sheer.Don't think it would look well with any sheer.Should also use invisible zipper in more neutral color. Calls too much attention to rear. Sorry.

Re: Designers Create Garments for Amy Butler Trunk Show

This is truly terrible!!!I agree with everyone else,what are the designers thinking?? Why are they hiding the body's on these models, except for the one with leggings.

Re: Maxi Skirt Tutorial

Would have liked to see the entire photo.Anyone out there think any age can wear maxi's? I love them, and feel great wearing them.

Re: Project Runway Season 11: Episode 6, "Senior Fling"

I'm with all who think the clothes were hideous! I'm 62 and know I would never wear any of these. The only thing we can do is stick to the basics, because designers just don't get it.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

Re: Giveaway: SewStylish Spring 2012 Fashion Sewing Guide

I haven't done much with my serger lately.Sure could use help in that department. One of my threads keeps breaking no matter how I adjust tension. Also love denim so i'd be interested in that as well.
