Re: A Pin for Every Purpose

Those bug pins are interesting I see that they sell a variety pack:

I have had the 1975 Vogue Sewing Book since about then or maybe 1976. I did get the newer version in 1982. It was my go to book for how to do things right, good instructions for quality work.

Re: Enter to Win a One-Year Subscription to Threads!

I used to have years and years of Threads magazines. I moved several times and at some point had to let them go. It would be so nice to have a year of them again to see what is new and just sit and flip through a magazine!

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

after a lot of moving, I have had to ditch all printed copies. When I saw this CD I felt there was hope, I can have all of them back! What a great way to have all of that info in a small space. I want it!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

I would be great to be able to add this book to my library of sewing books! I trust Threads to have great information!

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Designer Techniques"
