Re: Enter the Teach Yourself to Sew Giveaway Sponsored by Janome

I used to sew garments and mostly quilt now. I would really like to re-learn garment construction to sew for both my wardrobe and others.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

My tip for good ironing and pressing is to go with "no steam" and to keep a spray bottle next to the iron. I switch between quilting 100% cottons to velvet and wool to drapery fabric and heirloom sewing. All needing different ironing/pressing techniques and steam/no steam. If I keep the iron empty and spray as needed for steam then I am always ready for the next garment or project. The project I am currently in the middle of is new drapes for my bedroom. One panel done 3 to go.

Re: Book Giveaway: Dressmaking: 200 Q&A

My alltime mantra tip is to "measure twice...cut once". If only I could take back the times I cut before I had measured the second time.

If the pattern fits, and the garment is cut properly...the sewing will usually be a success.
