Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: What advice would you give to someone learning to sew?

My advice is to be passionate about sewing. The more passion you have for it, the easier it will be to learn the skills you need to succeed as a seamstress. Second, I would advise you to learn the fundamentals first. I know it is exciting when you first start sewing, but I highly recommend you learn the fundamentals to prevent stress and wasting fabrics and patterns. Lastly, turn to the internet especially Youtube to help you visually execute techniques. Youtube is a goldmine for sewing videos if you can’t afford sewing classes.

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

I have taught myself about fashion design and how to sew mainly from borrowing or renting textbooks and DVDs—even my sewing supplies, fabric, and sewing machine was given to me by my generous mom.

Winning the Louise Cutting DVD package would be great because it would be the first sewing learning tool I did not have to rent or borrow.
