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

Chei!!! I will cry blood if I miss this opportunity! I made up my mind to be a sewer and in less two weeks when I was giving the privilege as an Insider to watch all of these videos, then, I sew like a pro. I have watched "teach to sew" season 1&2. All these giveaway videos. In fact, I didn't regret it at all. Am a Nigeria graduate of Geography who have great passion for sewing but don't know where to start. But threads magazine has helped to bring out the dream in me in less two weeks as an Insider. Am not teasing but am just saying I know the value of these DVDs. Imagine what it will be like to have all of these in my library! Indeed, I would be delighted if I have them. Otherwise, P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C if I don't have them.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: Threads issue #158

Re: Book Giveaway: "Power Sewing Toolbox 1 and 2" by Sandra Betzina

I can’t imagine someone like me (a beginner) who has really wanted to be a pro when it comes to sewing having books being written and sold by Sandra Betzina and Threads magazine respectively. Threads magazine wouldn’t sell purposely because it wants to make money that am very sure of. At least, I have watched all their threads insider videos and read some of the digital magazines. Before God I didn’t regret my decision for a second. Definitely, I know I would love this like wise. As side, Fabric Savvy was a book written by Sandra which I was given an opportunity to download as an insider. Initially, when I saw it what came out of my mouth was mtcheeew. I said to myself what is that is so important to know about fabric that someone would have spent her time writing a book on it. But I downloaded it anyway since it was a gift and again I thought I know all fabrics. To my greatest surprise I saw much more than I thought. A part from the fact that I was enlightened about fabric because I rarely know more than five types of fabrics. Fabric Savvy is the tool I look upon when I need any information relating to clothing. The last time I needed to make a pattern free bias skirt shown in threads magazine June/July issue. I checked to know the necessary information needed for the fabrics I bought, the needle to use, whether pre-shrink was necessary, layout, topstitch, interfacing etc for the sewing to take place. Again, I saw the procedure for making a gored skirt but didn’t know what fabric will be suitable for making skirt then I consulted my ONE and ONLY confidant in the field of fabric, and of course that’s fabric savvy by Sandra Betzina.

Although, have read ONLY one of your books yet I would love to have more than a thousand in my shelf only if it is possible. Because, when I got to the fabric stores and mention fabrics such as taffeta, cotton damask etc and were brought out. I said to myself “ignorance is a disease whose only cure is KOWLEDGE” since I never believed they even exist or common talk less of getting them so easily like that. Therefore, I deserve to have these copies of your books because I know they will always be an EYE OPENER for someone like me.
