Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I see so many different things done with the serger and would so love to learn more techniques. I don't have much $ but try to make things for giving and know that I could do even more using my serger if I knew what to do.

Re: Oliso Pro Smart Iron Contest - Official Rules

One of the best tips I have is if you get fusible or something of the same nature on the sole plate of your iron, just rub with a new piece of fabric softener and WA-la. No more gunk on your iron. Make sure the iron is hot but don't burn your fingers.

Re: Win a Copy of Smart Fitting with Kenneth D. King on DVD

I have such a hard time of fitting clothes. So what could be better than having Kenneth D. King as a teacher in my sewing room!

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

I have been wanting to get a subscription to Threads but it has been so hard lately I keep telling myself later later. Have been having problems anyway and then my DH gets hit with cancer. It just blow us and any extras we wanted in the far future. So I need Threads Magazine to have something to look forward too that I know I will enjoy! Donna Rae

Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Threads" Issue #165 (February/March 2013)

I don't enjoy a lot of hand stitching but I do like to hand stitch the back of the binding that I sometimes use on necks and short sleeves or even sometimes for a hem. Can watch TV and sew on so it is invisible. Very nice looking.

Re: Use Stripes to Create a Mitered Design

The tip for matching strips is great. I kind of went DAH. Should have thought of that myself. Makes it sew easy.

Re: Creating Perfect Bias Fabric Loops

I don't know if I had a ah ha moment or a DUH moment. But cutting the bias larger to work with then cutting down after sewing the seam is so smart. Thanks so much for the instructions. For so long I have been trying to sew these skinny little strips. I love Threads Magazine and Threads site. Thanks for all your help all the time!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

WOW, certainly can't go wrong with this book. Would be my best sewing guide. Keeping my fingers (and everything else I can) crossed!
