Re: Making Pretty Buttonholes

Thank you for such excellent advice and helpful comments from Marjory. I copy the excellent tips onto my computer in my sewing files.

Re: MAGAZINE AND DVD GIVEAWAY: "Teach Yourself to Sew"

I have been sewing since I was 7, I taught my daughter to sew, and now look forward to teaching my 9year old grand-daughter to sew. Sewing is a wonderful skill and stays with you all your life. I have been making lovely clothes all my life including a beautiful double breasted, full length midnight blue coat, which I wore at my second wedding seven years ago.

Re: As a sewist, what are you most thankful for?

Although in England we do not have Thanksgiving, I am so grateful to have my eyesight. I have this year had cataract surgery to both my eyes - traumatising to me as I am eye-phobic- which has enabled me to continue with my first love - sewing! I will add to anyone anxious about cataract surgery, that it is wonderful and not at all scary! I can now see to thread a needle and how to thread my serger. I am grateful to be alive at a time when there is so much available to all sewers.

Re: How to Cover Snaps for that Touch of Couture

I think this is a great idea. May I suggest that you could attach iron-on interfacing to the fabric, which would make it easier to handle, and reduce the chances of the fabric fraying. (This is also useful when making covered buttons.)
I have been sewing since I was 7 and am now retired, but still love to be sewing more than any other hobby.
