Re: SewStylish Featured Giveaway!

28 skirts??? I would only have to do laundry once a month! What a wonderful idea. In addition, my little granddaughter would STYLE IT.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Europe: Rising Fashion Designers"

For our first 100 years we relied on England (London) and France (Paris) to drive fashion in the Colonies. We can still take inspiration from them, as inspiration can come from anywhere/anything. And I need all the inspiration I can get!

Re: Second Annual National Serger Month Celebration and Giveaway

I am just learning about the serger. It's in the box, and my fingers tremble as I approach it. ANY help would be very welcome.

Re: Book Giveaway: John Gillow Textiles Titles

I have a very interesting piece of crochet fabric I bought in Jamacia while on a cruise there in 1980. Never used it because I have never seen anything like it anywhere. I will probably leave it to my granddaughter when I win the race by dying with the biggest stash! :)

Re: Book Giveaway: "Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing"

This was my beautiful mother's fashion era, and I would love to have this book to help me introduce the 1940's to my beautiful granddaughter.

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

Ah, the mysterious part of Project Runway --- creating the collection. Any help would be fab!

Re: Book and DVD Giveaway: Claire B. Shaeffer's "Couture Sewing: Tailoring Techniques"

ANYTHING would help me. I took a short class on tailoring, but, unfortunately I didn't really learn much.

Re: Kid's Fashion Giveaway: "The Fashion Designer's Handbook"

What a great beginning for little sewers. The little sewer-to-be who lives with me would love this so that she can sew along side her grandma.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Improv Sewing"

Sounds just fabulous. It goes on my list of wants.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Hat Shop"

My grandmother was a milliner. I never learned the art of hat making from her, to my great regret. Maybe now is the time (I am 66 and a grandmother myself).

Re: Book Giveaway: "Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations"

Although I am too old to wear it, I am in LOVE with haute couture and would be very happy to add this book to my collection.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

There is a fabric designer about 75 miles from us in Carson City, NV, and I hope to pay her a visit before the summer season is over. This book would be a fabulous source for me as I investigate the amazing possibilities in our modern era.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Art of Fashion Draping" by Connie Amaden-Crawford

The one thing I have never had any training at all in: draping. What a wonderful opportunity. Thanks, Threads.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I am seriously enamored by the artistically designed fabrics made on behalf of the designers in Project Runway. I am sewing for a 4 year old, and I would love her name, her artwork, her favorite colors on dresses, pants, tops, etc. for her. What a kick! Pick me!

Re: A Floral Outfit For My Precious Flower.

Cute as can be. I can see this made in many different large prints for my precious little girl. Thanks for the inspiration.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

I want to WIN; I am a grandma raising a granddaughter and I would love to have this aid to my sewing better and to her beginning sewing when she is seven or so (she is 4 now). Thanks for offering this.
