Re: Pattern Giveaway: Simplicity SewStylish 1542

I like the style that is first illustrated, view A, gold fabric with cuts into the lapel. The style looks like it presents some complexity, which is always interesting to look at and a delicious challenge to sew. I'd like sizes 12 through 20.

Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I know a lot about sewing machine operation, but little about how to get the most out of my serger. If I could just learn to master tension, that would be a milestone for me.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Creating a Successful Fashion Collection"

What other reason can I add to posts on why to have the book. I'll just say that I'm covetous, I want it.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Improv Sewing"

I like to re-style fashion that's a bit out of date. I'm sure I'll find inspiration. I want to make some clever tennis dresses.

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

I have the first DVD archive up to 2009. Even though I have all the Threads magazines, which I will never part with, the greater value of the DVD is search capability by subject. I teach and sometimes I need a crash course on a particular topic. I can research a topic by either reading at the computer or by getting issue number(s)and pulling magazines. For me, it has been a valuable resource.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Girl's World" by Jennifer Paganelli

I would love to use the book to work with my 12-year-old student who is bright, bright, Bright. What a challenge keeping up with her. To keep her interested, I teach her sewing as if we were learning industrial engineering.
