I use my serger for basic seam finishing most of the time.
Would love to learn more serger techniques.
Pamela is a wonderful teacher.
I have wanted to learn draping for some time now.
This book would be a great start
I would use the design for clothing. What style of garment would depend on the fabric content. I am always looking for abstract designs in the color combinations that I prefer, but most fabric designs I find are too large a print.
I love the jacket with the assymmetrical zipper.
I am teaching a couple of teen agers to sew and either the tunic or dress patterns would be great for them since they each just finished their first garment. One girl used a project runway pattern. I would give the tunic and dress patterns to them.
I love Sandra's books. I still use her instructions for putting in a fly-front zipper.
I teach sewing and try to incorporate these extra techniques in to the instructions even when they are not included in the pattern instructions. this would be a great addition to my sewing library.
I have used this placket pattern and it is great. It is the same as in David Coffin's book. However, I did not think about using the steam-a-seam. Great idea.
Threads is my favorite magazine.
I will never give up on the actual magazine with all of the great information and wonderful pictures. But it is so nice to have all of the information ever published in Threads at you fingertips on the DVD.
Thank you Taunton for putting together this DVD.
I would like to learn how to make a boned lining for formal wear.
For corners, the instruction was to trim 1/4" from the corner then complete the stitching off of the corner. Do you trim 1/4" at a diagonal from the corner? A picture to illustrate this point would most helpful.
I glanced at the magazine and was really impressed with the information that was included. Threads is my all time favorite magazine.
