Re: Interview with Designer Joi Mahon and Giveaway

Purchasing the right size pattern has always been a problem. I'm interested in fitting a broad back and big shoulders, but not so large bust.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

As a self-taught sewing enthusiast, this set would be invaluable to me in honing my sewing skills. Louise Cutting is one of the best teachers out there and having the DVD set would be like being able to attend her classes whenever I want. Thanks for the opportunity!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Power Sewing Toolbox 1 and 2" by Sandra Betzina

I still refer to my ragged copies of Power Sewing books from the 1990s; they are still some of the most useful sewing books I've ever come across. I'm certain that the Toolbox books will be a wonderful way to further update my sewing skills.

Re: Burda and Simplicity join forces

Yes! I will certainly be using Burda patterns more often now that they are available on at discount. It's so much easier now to check out from home what's available in the Burda catalog than it used to be when I had to either go to my local Joann or search for them online. ships pretty quickly, too, with free shipping over a certain amount. I like the idea of a pdf sewing pattern, but in practice I hate going through the bother and expense when you factor in the cost of paper and ink and time putting it all together. So, yes, this is good news to me!
