Re: Enter Our Huge Quilting Giveaway

Wow, when I was very young my grandmother quilted & I then wanted to learn that craft. Not until many years later did I find a quilting class. I used to travel to the next town (which was very long drive away from home.) The first class the teacher showed many of her own quilts & I was hooked. The next class she took many of us shopping & gave us a quick class on fabrics & how to use them. We learned so much that day. We all bought our fabric that day. The next class was on templets. Not one lady dropped out because we all loved what we were learning. We all worked on the same pattern & not one of them was a duplicate. After about the 5th class she let us take them home & do a little work on them. It was a queen quilt & I finally finished it. We used it for many years. It is packed away but I think about it often as I learned so much. Many years later...I love to add quilting to my sewing projects now.

Re: Simplicity Pattern 1466 Giveaway!

Very nice combo. Will make a great wardrobe for summer & fall. I have plenty of fabric to choose from so I don't have to worry about purchasing any fabric. If I should win I'd like the 10 to 18 size. Thanks for the great offer.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

I have had a long time subscription to Threads. I've been collecting them since the 13th issue. Also love ThreadsOnline. So many hints & tips to give this woman more up-to-date information in sewing. It's my passion but don't tell my dh. tee hee No, really, he knows that already.
Would love a free subscription to learn more tips to help me in my love of sewing.
Thank you for a year-long happiness reading online.

Re: How to Reduce Collar Bulk

Nice application. I learned it years ago from Nancy Zieman of Nancy's Notions. It was in a couple of her books. But it's been quite a while & a very good way to reduce bulk.
Thanks for reminding us all about this application of the collar pattern splitting.

Re: Two Techniques for Edges

Thank you, Pam. What great ideas. Never too old to learn new tips.
Adrienne P introduced you to me about 4 years ago at the Atlanta Expo. Great to see you on here.
