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

Threads always has a vast amount technical and inspirational ideas. I always learn something new from them and having a hard copy in my hands allows me ease of use when it's time to do a project.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

I'd love to become a Threads insider so I could watch the technic videos. I picked up several great tips during my trial period and would love to have the chance to learn more.

Re: Project Runway Episode 6: "Fix My Friend!"

VEN WAS TERRIBLE!! I think he should have gone home instead of Nathan! At least Nathan's client liked her dress. Ven's customer service was terrible!

I loved Gunnar's attitude this episode even if I thought the garment construction looked a bit sloppy.

Fabio had the most dramatic change and original dress so good for him for winning.

Ven just made me so SO sad.

Re: What influences helped to shape your current sewing hobby or career?

My grandmother taught me to sew and I have been encouraged by my parents to be creative and grow my skills. Being taller than average has kept me sewing clothes so I get the fit and length I want.

The Custom Lace Top would probably be the first place I would go. I have been thinking about making a lace top this spring and having some pointers would be great!

Re: Magazine Giveaway: Threads Issue #159, March 2012

Bra making and sewing spaces sound the most interesting. It is always a challenge to keep everything organized for me.

Re: Book Giveaway: "1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips"

My Grandma taught me to sew the sleeve in before sewing up the sideseam. It makes things so much easier most of the time. The second most useful was press as you sew! Makes things look so much crisper and finished.
