Re: Apply Elastics to Your Garments

Hello Everyone,

Unfortunately, there is no video attached to this web extra. The “watch video” text link found in the 5/6/2014 Threads eLetter was indeed a typo. I apologize for any confusion this mistake has caused.

Re: SewStylish Spring Fashion Challenge 2014 - Official Rules

To seattlecosplay: Yes, it’s okay to crop the photos to remove an unwanted background. If an image taken is too dark to properly show garment details, photos may be brightened. However, any editing done to the picture must not alter any part of the actual sewn garment. (i.e. using image editing software to align stitches ect…)

To Darcie, ChristinaSewsUp: We’ve updated the rules for further clarification.

The Submission must must not have been previously published by any third parties in print, digital or any other format;
The Submission must must not have been previously entered in any other competitive contest or event;

To JetSetSewing: Yes, you may submit more than one project. There is no limit.

To Berte: We would love to be able to open this contest to our international audience. Unfortunately we cannot with a contest of this nature. However, you bring up a very good point. Hopefully we can offer prizes like the one you suggested in a future giveaway or contest.

Thank you all for your questions and feedback!

@doglove and @user-1117632: I am not able to replicate the errors you are seeing. If using FireFox, please try opening the .pdf in a different browser like Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Safari (MAC). Additionally, try this as a momentary workaround: while in FireFox, right click and save the link as a file. You should be able to open the article then. If nothing works, please call our customer service department for more troubleshooting help at 800-477-8727. Thanks!

Re: Video: How to Machine-Bead a Design

To 60_plus_learner: I’ve done some testing and cannot duplicate the same error. Is this occurring with all videos or just this one? I suspect that your (Adobe) Flash plug-ins may not be up-to-date. Please make sure you have installed the latest version of Flash (visit http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/), clear out your browser’s cache, and try again. If this doesn’t work, please call our customer service department at 800-477-8727. Please let us know if you continue to experience issues with viewing this video.

Re: How to Make Three Quick Dresses

Hi Liz_S,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble downloading the article.

What browser are you using and is it up-to-date? When you click download, do you get any pop-up from a pop-up blocker? Also, when you click download are you given a 'new tab' in your browser?

I've opened the article up several times with no problems, and so it may be a browser compatibility issue. You may also have to give it some time for the PDF to download. If you're on a PC, you can also try your "Downloads" folder by simply going to "My Documents" and then "Downloads".

Please let us know if this helps.

Thanks!
