Re: 2015 National Serger Month Giveaway

I have a Babylock Serger. I love it! It makes it so easy to thread and use, but I've so little experience with it and there are so few classes or books that show you how to use it. I could really use the information contained in this wonderful set to enhance my knowledge and enjoyment in using my serger.

Re: Using Buttons as Embellishment

Hi, Kenneth!

I love your jacket. I'm not sure if it would be right for me, but it is beautiful and it looks great on you. I appreciate your sharing with us how this was put together. There are many other types and kind of embellishments that could be used by people to personalize this jacket or not.

Wonderful idea. Keep up the great work.


Re: Spring Cleaning for Your Fabric Stash

Actually, I have the large Expedit unit from Ikea, but have taken the easy way out. You see, they have these semi-transparent plastic bins called, LEKMAN, which I stack my fabric collection in and am still able to see the wonderful colors and get some kind of idea where I put that piece I'm looking for,

I think the mini-bolt idea is good too, but this way the material is safe from dust and fingerprints and such like.

I also share the Expedit with another member of my family and it is in a entryway of our apartment being used as a room divider, but the bins add a wonder sense of color to somewhat drab space. I hope to someday be able to take over complete access to the Expedit for my own use. ;-)
