I purchased the magazine, "Teach Yourself to Sew" and then actually won the DVD set. Since I then had two copies of the magazine I shared one with my dentist. She called it the "Betty Crocker of sewing books." I have to agree the magazine is for anyone who sews. It offers new and basic techniques for the beginner and new and refresher techniques for the more experienced sewer. I would love to have a copy of the book, "Threads Sewing Guide," to add to my collection. It would never collect dust because I use my reference materials on a daily basis. Thank you Threads, for all of your inspirational ideas and tips!Posted: 09:38 am on May 18th 2011
I am searching for ideas of inspiration for a table runner. I bought some beautiful material at a discount home fabrics store. It is the color of freshly whipped cream with stripes of shiny and matte material. I also have a sun hat on the drawing board and a new dress pattern my husband helped pick out. I have a full agenda of spring projects but wouldn't mind adding others as the bug bites me. I am hoping the new Sewstylish magazine will be an inspiration!Posted: 10:21 am on February 16th 2011
I have two granddaughters aged 6 and 8. I would use this book to sew beautiful dresses for them. I recently introduced my Grands to hand sewing, a way of sharing one of my favorite things. I would let them help me construct these dresses as a way of deepening their love and understanding of the sewing process. To me, sewing is not just about the process and project but it goes much deeper, it is a way of giving a part of myself to the project I'm working on. It is a way of sharing a part of myself whenever I create something on the sewing machine.Posted: 11:58 am on February 9th 2011
I bought a gently used book entitled "Kids Can Quilt." I browsed through it, looking for a quick and easy sewing project for my grandchildren, because I like to plan a supervised activity for them when they visit. I saw a cute little pin cushion shaped like a lady bug. This required using flannel fabric and simple whip stiches to complete. To my surprise all three children ages 5, 8, 8 (twins) were thrilled to "sew" this project. Our visit flew by and the highlight was our "sewing" project. It was the first time any of them had ever held a needle and thread. Needless to say I can't wait for our next "sewing lesson"/visit.Posted: 10:05 am on December 16th 2010
This dress is awesome! The detail that went into it makes it look like it was purchased from a high end designer. I love the fabric choices, they meld beautifully! GO SAINTS!Posted: 03:03 pm on October 27th 2010
I absolutely love the bag pattern you created! The fact that you made the straps part of the bag and attached them to the bottom allows the straps to support the weight of the bag and the straps will not tear away from the bag. I love the fabric you chose as well as the contrasting handles.Posted: 03:00 pm on October 27th 2010
What a lovely outfit! It is so hip and happening! Did you use a pattern or did you create your own? I would love to make this for my two granddaughters.Posted: 02:55 pm on October 27th 2010
Is it just me or what. It looks as though the back of those high waisted slacks has a mismatched pattern as does the waistband. Other than that, I love the style.Posted: 06:02 pm on October 4th 2010
I chose magazine number 2 because it was attractive and colorful. I also like to have all the instructions inside the magazine for a project so I don't have to go out and buy a pattern. The projects listed on the cover seemed quick and doable to me.Posted: 07:35 pm on June 14th 2010
I would just love to go through this book with my Grands! I plan on sharing my love of sewing with them this summer.Posted: 06:27 pm on June 14th 2010
