Re: Christine Haynes Pattern and Book Giveaway

Oh, it would be the Emery dress for sure. I recently saw one of tv that sounds just like this pattern, only sleeveless. I loved that dress when I saw it. It was in a pretty shiny fabric, probably a satin or similar, but it was accented with crystal groupings in a fine geometric design. Very stunning. Would love to use this pattern to copy this stunning dressy dress.

Re: Cheryl Kuczek Pattern Giveaway

We are so very fortunate to live at the time that we have this very informative and entertaining resource, 'Threads' magazine. I think I am only missing one issue, somewhere in between Numbers 10 to 20, in my library. Thank you for years of reading, learning and sharing the joy of sewing and related arts. Mary Jean Dunn

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Like the old adage goes 'measure twice, then cut', another lesson to be learned is 'PRESS TWICE, THEN SEW'. Pressing twice applies to seams: press as sewn to set the stitches, then press open or to one side as project requires before sewing across your seam. A much more professional look!!

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

I have been sewing for the better part of 65 years and am always open to learn something new. What better way than to utilize the information from THREADS magazine or from selected DVDs like your current Giveaway "Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting". I appreciate this opportunity.

Re: The 84th Annual Academy Awards

All of the gowns were beautiful. My favorites were worn my Sandra Bullock, Penelope Cruz, and Jennifer Lopez. Yes, if my daughters lifestyles still called for gowns, we would be sure to look at these gowns for ideas and colors. What wonderful inspirations they are. Their designers deserve the accolades they receive.
