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

I always carry hand sewing with me. I love to hand quilt and do that several hours a day, riding in the car or while watching a movie on TV. I recently finished hand appliqueing a king sized quilt, which took 20 months. I love to sew clothing and add bead embellishments. I learned a nifty technique from Threads to bead while sewing down facings on dresses. I sew quilt bindings by hand. I love my sewing machine, also, but hand sewing is a relaxing gift I give myself. I would love the giveaway. Thanks!
