Re: Book Giveaway: "The Complete Photo Guide to Clothing Construction"

Good Day,
I would really like to get more information and working knowledge of sewing blazers. My mother made few but did not dabble in sewing blazer herself. A definite must for me.

Thanks for having this giveaway.

Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I presently do not own a Serger, but have been on the lookout. I somewhat find this machine a bit scary with all it's gadgets and spools of thread. So winning this DVD would definitely ease myself in knowing how to create the stitches I hope to use on my garments.

Thank you for having this giveaway. Good luck to everyone.

Best always,

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Hello everyone. :) I would have to say my tip is that I like to iron dress shirts out from the dryer partially damped so the items will have a clean finish once pressed. I believe with the Oliso Pro Smart Iron, I would definitely achieve a great look.

Thank you for having this giveaway.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: The Best of Threads Fitting

Hello Thread's Community,
I would have to say for me it is the shoulders which also affects my bust measurement considerably. I would love to be able to accurately fit myself properly without having to go through trying on the garment and taking it off. I still have not purchased a dress form - someday.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: Fashion by Design

Hello Everyone - I was recently referred by (FB Profile: Sew Craftful), about designer/teacher (Susan Eilas) from one of her teaching videos on (You Tube) regarding draping, and I must say I was amazed!

From my perspective as a sewer the desire to create clothing that has durability, a creative edge, and becomes cost effective in the long run was derived mostly from necessity.

Throughout all my sewing projects I have always thought it would be nice to create my own patterns that would benefit my personal style and creativity, but somehow considered it to be somewhat out of my reach.
After viewing (Susan Eilas),videos I see that the possibilities are endless if given the proper tools and instruction along with a true desire.

Now there are many designers/teachers who may have videos or reading tutorials in the art of draping, and I think when it comes to such a topic each person perspective has to be observed/viewed and possible used to determine which style is best for you. You may even find yourself using instructions from many and compiling them all into one easy concept for you to use in the long run. But the whole point is to research and be comfortable with the instructions and to know which one(s) fits you.

I would be so, so ECSTATIC to receive this book "Fashion By Design" by Janice Greenberg Ellinwood. I feel her insights would open my world even more to terms of relaying image, concept and conditioning to designing apparel.

Thank you for sponsoring this book giveaway! Have a nice day!

Best Regards,

Re: Threads Insider - Coming Soon!

As exciting as it would be to be an Threads Insider - the cost I can't manuever at this time - the economy - LOL.

But continue success on the new expansion to the Threads Media/Instructional Line.

Re: Video: How to Attach Hooks, Eyes & Snaps

My sincere thanks to Ms. Susan Khalje.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: The April/May 2012 issue of Threads magazine!

Dear Ms. Mohr,
How can anyone choose. All these article seem to give valuable insights to the fashion industry as well as the home sewer. Anyone would LOVE to WIN this issue. ;)

But if I must choose one article that really caught my eye, then I would have to go with, "Garment Industry Secrets".

Thank you. Have a great day!

Best Regards,

Re: Look ahead to spring

If I could describe the Threads pattern in 1 word, it would be WOW! I think Threads pattern desgin #1919 is FABULOUS. I truly love the detailing of the colar along with the princess seam jacket giving way to a beautiful fit.

This look brings a FRESH and STYLISH look to all in one full pop!

This is a definite for anyone wanting a classic, but stylish change for Spring 2012.

I know it's on my list.

Best Regards Threads Staff,


Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

I believe the THREADS 2011 ARCHIVE DVD set is a MUST for any fashion sewer whether beginner or expert.

Just imagine how overwhelmed with joy and enthusiam I would be knowing that I have the COMPLETE informational guide from A-Z and everything in between that Threads Magazine has provided since 1985-2011.

For me this would make my Christmas sparkle for 2011!
