I'd love to make the shawl, but would start with the scarf -- a small reward is great incentive to move forward with the next project!
Our Wearable Arts group is preparing for a show entitled "The Value of Contrast." In addition to using fabric with good color and texture contrast, my entry will be made from mens' shirts and will be entitled "Hiswear for Her." So far, so good!
A vogue pattern by Marcy Tilton, the French Housedress. Love it. -- comfy and a great fit. Made it with a loose-weave cotton from my local, independent fabric store in St. Paul, MN. That reminds me, I need to make another version of it. Red, yes, in red this time.
I love to sew silk as its my favorite fabric to wear!
Love the Rosemary collar, but my first choice would be the Emery!!
I've enjoyed making historical clothing for my granddaughters. It's kept me busy. For myself, I love knit tops and dresses that I select when a new pattern catches my eye.
I would like to have a bag that Alice would be proud to carry in Wonderland!
I use my four-thread overlock often, but have really not stretched my serger any further. Just think how I could make this machine hum by learning all its hidden secrets!
Minneapolis, Minnesota, would be a great spot for a satellite location!
I keep a small pair of scissors near my iron to snip any stray threads I notice while ironing. And I never press dark-colored items without a press cloth to eliminate shine. My sewing backlog includes several T-shirts for myself and a new quilt for my granddaughter.
Love this magazine and would be thrilled to win.
A subscription to Threads would be awesome - learning, entertainment, inspiration. It would be devoured to the last page.
Wow. To have access to Threads' incredible library at my fingertip would be invaluable. I love your magazine and have been a subscriber for several years and have learned so much. Sue in Minnesota
Creating something from the book would definitely help chase away the winter blahs. Fingers crossed!
Just joined a local fashion sewing group and this book would be a big plus. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
It would be so thrilling to win this book. I haven't tried draping, but its of keen interest right now.
Wow, I would love to learn from Louise. Not only would it be educational, but also great fun.
As a newbie to fashion sewing, this books would be a real bonanza. Thank you Threads for a great magazine and blog. Sue M in Minn
I returned to sewing a few years ago when the grandkids started arriving. Am now interested in sewing for myself and could greatly benefit from Threads' words of wisdom.
My grandkids love working with me in my sewing room. They even have their own stash (all my 'leftovers'). This year the 8-year old made a vest with grandma just coaching; the 6-year old and I made a sun dress (with the 8-year old supervising the cutting); and the 3-year old had a great time making his own fabric using all the decorative stitches. They had a great time and grandma got lots of hugs.
