I'd love to win a swag bag, I am a newly converted Bernina fan after buying my 1150MDA overlocker, now I am secretly planning my next sewing machine purchase on the Bernina site ;) Shh! Don't tell my hubby, haha!

Re: What influences helped to shape your current sewing hobby or career?

My sewing hobby was shaped by my mother, who taught me how to use her machine young and encouraged my creativity. It is also her encouragement to develop my creative side that has seen me take up a career in the design industry :)

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Couture Sewing Techniques" by Claire B. Shaeffer

I really want to learn more about correctly lining a garment because at the moment my knowledge is limited and I tend to only line something if I have the lining pattern included. I have made a few basic linings but to learn more sophisticated techniques would be great.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Draping Basics" by Sally M. Di Marco

I only recently got my dressform so I haven't had much of a chance to try very much draping. I've done a little "playing" with out any instructions and I'd love to learn more since I've seen so many amazing creations online that were "draped" :)

Re: Add Your Input to the Sewing Group and Gathering List

I think the BurdaStyle Sewing Clubs are worth a mention, I co-run the Perth, Western Australia club with Sandra but here is the link to a full list of both US and International clubs: :)
There is a google map to help you find your nearest club and you can contact the club leaders from that list or join the BSC network on here and find your nearest club to join.
