Re: Industry Insider Techniques DVD Giveaway

Oo! I don't have Volume 8, yet. My most recent project is trying to make a bathing suit for my short and round self. It's an adventure.

Re: 2015 National Serger Month Giveaway

Oh, would LOVE to win. I am a visual learner, so DVDs are perfect! (and the serger is scary... help)

Re: Embellishments Special Issue: Check out our latest issue and enter to win!

If I absolutely Have to pick: Surface design section, Ombre dyeing. Really, though... Everything!

Re: Enter the 2014 National Sewing Month Giveaway

Oops... too distracted thinking about the upcoming cooler weather, I hit submit before I mentioned: I'm a long-time buyer/subscriber of Threads and I'd love a free year.

Re: Enter the 2014 National Sewing Month Giveaway

I'm working on a swimsuit, so I can go to my gym's indoor pool (here, in the soon-to-be delightfully chilly North Carolina mountains).

Re: Enter Threads Storage Solution Giveaway Sponsored by

Fabric storage is taken care of, but I could use a lot of help with the smaller bits and bobs -- threads, buttons, needles, tape measures, etc. These would be perfect.

Re: Christine Haynes Pattern and Book Giveaway

I think I'd probably like the Emery pattern, but my Mom would love it. What I'm desperate for is the book!

Re: Second Annual National Serger Month Celebration and Giveaway

I bought it to make a fine rolled (or narrow) hem on silk Art-to-wear clothing. I haven't gotten a chance, yet... it kinda scares me. A DVD teaching me how to use it would be quite nice.

Re: Book Giveaway: John Gillow Textiles Titles

Since we usually traveled to vacation in more rustic out-of-doors areas, I've never bought fabric on a trip. However, I was lucky enough to live in St. Petersburg, FL, for a very long time, where there was a fabric store called Jay's Fabrics just on the other side of town. It was jam-packed with all kinds of fine fabrics.

Re: The Bag-Lady Giveaway: Four handbag books and a quilted bag to carry them all!

I need to make a bag with little pockets and places for all the little items I carry. They all tend to fall to the bottom of the two large pockets of the one I have, now.

Re: Enter the Teach Yourself to Sew Giveaway Sponsored by Janome

I'm short and round, so being able to make my own clothing is a highly desirable ability. Great prize package!

Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I'd love to win, because I have a serger, but I'm a little scared of it. I'd like to learn how and what to do with it!

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

I like using a larger metal knitting needle for holding down points and small areas where you're in danger of steaming your fingers. Would be fun to have a "fancy" iron, for a change.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

I'd love to win to gain access to the videos -- I'm a visual learner and I've found learn-by-watching is my best bet!

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

I want to win this DVD bundle!

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

Oh, how I long for this DVD! It would be so very nice to win it. I've wanted one for quite some time. Great offering!

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Underwear Fashion in Detail"

One of the biggest changes I've seen in my lifetime, personally, was the day I wore my Wonderbra out to dinner. My boyfriend blurted out "Where'd THOSE come from?" I would love to win this book. C'mon random chance...
