Re: Second Annual National Serger Month Celebration and Giveaway

I would love to be able to use my serger properly. It intimidates me with the threading and how fast it goes! I want to be comfortable with it so that I will use it more and I think this DVD would be a great help!

Re: Oliso Pro Smart Iron Contest - Official Rules

I guess I am old fashioned but I love to iron! The hot iron melting those wrinkles is like a hot knife to butter. Even though your clothing says "Permanent Press", things look so much better when given a light touch up! If you are a single woman and looking for a man, you can usually spot them because they are the "unkept" looking ones with the non ironed clothing! LOL

My best tip on using the iron is to always pre-shrink your fabric AND iron it and your pattern! How can pieces fit together properly when they are cut out of a wrinkled fabric/pattern? When sewing your seams, always set the stitches first by pressing the seam the way it is sewn and then open it or turn it to the dark side if you have a light and dark fabric.

If I won this iron, I would use it for all of my ironing but I think it would be especially helpful for my quilting!

Re: Simplicity Pattern Collection from Threads

You can research the age of Grandma's sewing machine on the Singer Sewing Machine Co. site. With the serial number you can find out when it was manufactured. Unfortunately, they aren't worth too much (look on e-Bay)but they make a very stunning decorative piece in a living room. I've cleaned two up and the detail work is beautiful! Treasure it!
