Re: Attend The Sewing Party

The Sewing Party is such an awesome concept. I would love to be part of it. So many ideas!

Re: Enter the 2014 National Sewing Month Giveaway

September is my month to get inspired. Our state fair runs for 17 days during September. I compete in the Open Class Sewing and usually do quite well. I get so inspired by seeing the other exhibitors' entries. I also run the 4-H Fashion Revue competition held at the State Fair. Seeing what these kids can sew always amazes and inspires me. I use Threads in my 4-H club's sewing studio.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Patternmaking Made Easy," Third Edition by Connie Crawford

I like to sew dresses/jackets/tops with princess seam detailing, because it is easy to fit to my curves.

Re: SewStylish Featured Giveaway!

I have a spring skirt/jacket I'm working on right now. I also need to sew a formal by June for an event. Helping my 4-H kids finish up their sewing projects before we stop for the summer.

Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

This would be a great education tool for my 4-H club's sewing room!

Re: Win a Copy of Smart Fitting with Kenneth D. King on DVD

Would be awesome to win Kenneth King's DVD! I teach sewing to 4-H kids. As they grow, they have to learn how to fit their ever-changing bodies. Sometimes, this can be quite a challenge.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Little Things to Sew"

My 4-H kids would love to use that book!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

Would be an awesome book to have for my 4-H kids! I teach sewing to about 15 4-H kids. They are an amazing bunch of talented kids.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: Spring 2011 SewStylish

My spring projects - would like to finish my block-of-the-month quilt from last year. Also, my friend & I are going to redesign a simple sheath dress pattern like we saw in a sewing magazine.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Quick Stuff to Sew"

Looks like some fun projects that I could utilize in my 4-H club.
