Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Threads" Issue #165 (February/March 2013)

I really enjoy mending and reweaving, saving something from the scrap heap. Would love the giveaway.

Re: 10 Better Sewing Habits

In response to ozviking: Although it's not ergonomically correct, a folding cardboard cutting board laid on your bed will work for larger projects until you can find a place for a large, tall cutting table. I used this for years in a small apartment even though it was hard on my back. Now my sewing room is in my laundry room and I placed a hollow core door over my front load washer and dryer (with a measuring tape secured along the front edge). It is a good height and gives me plenty of room for almost anything.

Awesome alternative use of materials! And you won't set off the metal detector at the airport, especially embarrassing when the boning is in an undergarment.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Horrockses Fashions: Off-the-Peg Style in the '40s and '50s"

Pick Me, Pick Me! Would love to have this book, I remember my Scots friend Els wearing these dresses when I was a kid.
