Re: Book Giveaway: "Patternmaking Made Easy," Third Edition by Connie Crawford

I would love this comprehensive guide so I knew what I was doing and WHY! Tackling a long & tall form, not as svelte as it once was, uh, that means taking account for what fell out of the shoulders into the middle . . . and making me look awesome is my goal. I think this was be a miracle aid! Thanks!

Re: Magazine Giveaway: Threads Issue 168

I've loved so many! Though having just seen one on Antiques Roadshow, I'll choose the black gown Marilyn Monroe wore in Some Like It Hot. It had fringe on the bottom part and was worn in the dance number on the train. Amazingly, it was so tiny, and she had to be sewn in to it.

Re: Using Buttons as Embellishment

Cool! I do wonder how Antiques Road Show would value this!

Re: Book Giveaway: Summer Mystery Reading for the Sewing Enthusiast

Cleverness is always delightful! I love it when sewing expresses this quality, and would adore finding the same quality in a deft mystery story concerning sewing. Would that I was that good! So I read -- and am delighted!

Re: A New Sewing Machine Concept

I could pull that puppy out and virtually sew anywhere . . . makes me think of a treadle operated machine I had years back in the beginning! While capability has increased, basic functioning has not; and a reverse from a foot pedal is clever indeed. And a hand crank . . . so green & just like the radios that run from either solar or hand cranking. I wonder if they could put solar on the top?

Re: Fabric and Thread are Not Simply for Sewing!

I find Kumi's ability to see and then express vision through many mediums amazing. The skill in forming a tile depths to produce a profile is wonderful, and I'm delighted with the intricacies of brads and threads in creating her wonderful artworks. Blessings that her hands and eyes are always healthy to continue doing her works.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Couture Sewing Techniques" by Claire B. Shaeffer

I'm still long and lean, though not as lanky as I used to be. Nonetheless, I'd love to learn Claire's methods on creating and adjusting perfect fits for slacks and pants, as well as diminishing that bit of a tummy bump way past being a baby one.
