Re: TWO Book Giveaway: "Sew Fun" and "Sewing School 2"

One of my most treasured sewing related memories is the day our youngest daughter married her high school sweetheart. Not only were they surrounded by loving family and friends the wedding and reception included many handcrafted items - most completed by the bride. Not the least of which were the dresses worn by the bridesmaids and the "woman of honor," the groom's sister was his "best (wo)man."

Re: The Great British Sewing Bee Returns

Re: Book Giveaway: Successful Serging

I'm on my fourth serger and love them for sewing knits, loungewear and for finishing edges and seams. I'm now thinking about doing some more decorative things with it and the book looks like it would be very helpful!

David, What a blessing it is that you share the experiences that you had with Mr. Kleibacker. Thank you!

Re: Mystery Sewing Machine Foot

I'm going with the zig zag foot as my guess. The ruffler/pleater would have additional adjustments such as pleats per stitch and even a no pleat option for areas along the length that need to be flat.
