Re: Fabric Giveaway: Celebrating Grand Central Terminal's 100th year

As a child I remember being awe-stricken when we entered Grand Central Station during WW II. It was amazing then as it is now. What a neat way to commemorate this wonderful iconic part of NY and our country's history!

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

I've been a subscriber since Threads' first issue and can't imagine being without it. It is without a doubt the finest sewing magazine in print. I teach sewing and always recommend to all my students.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

I have been a Threads subscriber since the first magazine issue, and I cannot imagine my sewing life without it. The Insider is a wonderful adjunct to it. I'm a Threads veteran, and would love to be a winner in the drawing.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: The Best of Threads Fitting

I have had five back surgeries that have resulted in continuing change of my shape, causing me many fit problems. One side measurement from my waist to the floor is 2" higher than the other, and my right side from the waist down protrudes outward. One shoulder is significantly lower than the other. In addition, I teach sewing classes for adults who of course have many different shapes. I'd love to have the new publication to assist me in all aspects of fitting.

Re: Book Giveaway: Summer Mystery Reading for the Sewing Enthusiast

What fun! Reading and sewing are my favorite forms of therapy. Don't know a better way to spend my time!

Re: A New Sewing Machine Concept

Amazing concept! I immediately saw it as a viable product for use in third world countries. We need more free thinkers like this designer.

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

Anyone who sews would be thrilled to own this set. It's a fantastic reference to have in one's library. I know I would go back to the videos time and again to check out the information contained there. HowSew in Tucson

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

I teach adult sewing classes and would love to have these to share with my students. I attended one of Betzina's week-long sessions several years ago so I know what an excellent teacher and sewing authority she is.

Re: Giveaway: SewStylish Spring 2012 Fashion Sewing Guide

I teach sewing and love to share information with my adult students. They soak it up like a sponge! I'm interested in Copy It, since I often have trouble getting my sleeve/armhole fit correct.

Re: Fresh Start for a Sewing Space

Go to the hardware store and purchase one or two of the small multi-drawer cabinets used for storing nuts and bolts. They are great for storing buttons, snaps, hooks & eyes, etc. I love mine!
