Re: How to Cut and Hem a Tulle Skirt

The title of this article is kind of misleading. When I saw it I thought--why would you want to hem tulle? Though this has some good tips, they are about cutting the tulle (which is really all that's needed) not actually hemming it.

Re: Book Giveaway: A Collection of Sewing Books for Kids

2 granddaughters so far & I so look forward to sharing my love of sewing with them.

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

Uh--that's a silly question! ;)

Re: Book Giveaway: "Quilt Love"

My favorite quilt projects are the ones that are made with love. So far the bright, colorful, contemporary quilts that I have designed & made for each of my granddaughters. Most recently, given for Christmas for the newest baby (one month old!). I love fun contemporary quilts & would love this book!

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Art of Fashion Draping" by Connie Amaden-Crawford

I would LOVE this book! I'd like to drape so many things, but would likely start with a dress with a low draped back. This would help so much in my work (theatrical costume) too, as I've always focused more on pattern-making.

Re: A Floral Outfit For My Precious Flower.

Adorable!--Your daughter AND the outfit. :) Nicely done.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

There are lots of things I could use the fabric for--bags, apparel, home decor--since I sew so many different things. And I love textile design!

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

This would be a great reference set for the studio.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Sew What You Love" by Tanya Whelan

I would love to have this as a gift for a sewing student.

Re: Book Giveaway: "The Chronicle of Western Costume" by John Peacock

This would be a great addition to my costume library!
