Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I'd love to learn more than the basics and utilize my serger by making so many more items than I can now. I like to make good use of what I have, not feel wasteful of the investment. Thank you for the opportunity.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Threads" Issue #165 (February/March 2013)

I enjoy slipstitching binding onto quilts I make and blanket stitching on jackets and blankets, of course.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Art of Fashion Draping" by Connie Amaden-Crawford

I would love to drape several styles of blouses, to start, and continue with dresses, skirts, costumes and much more. I've never tried draping and would love to learn from a highly respected person in the field. Thanks.

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

I listen to books while stitching all the time, and most of them are mysteries! Sometimes I have to sit and read one because it sounds too good to pass up when the audio version is not available. I'd love to have the opportunity to read these and get to know the works of two more authors. Thanks for the chance!

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

Although I've sewn for years, I am now learning real fitting techniques and how to make the clothing I stitch look really professional. I'd love to hae this set to refer to and get a good grasp on the proper ways to do things. Thanks for making it available.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Quick Stuff to Sew"

My niece and nephews (ages 4-12) will be receiving fleece socks/slippers in various lengths and appropriate colors/prints along with tops and pants. My co-workers will receive placemats, table runners and fabric coiled bowls. Friends have asked for slippers. I have several scrap quilts to finish and fleece mittens and socks to go to shelters and charities. I plan to make zippered sweat shirts for my brother and sister-in-law. Last year my daughter received a large fabric coiled bowl to store her balls of yarn and my son got one for his cat to use as a bed.
I love to see what's new and different, and finding someone it will be just perfect for. Thank you for the opportunity.

Re: Book Giveaway: Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns

I would love this book. I have so much to learn in the construction and fitting of historical items.
Might even share it with my daughter who creates costumes of all kinds, and loves to do historical pieces accurately.
It would be great for both of us!

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

I would love to learn more about fitting and various alterations. I have been admiring this book and would love to win it.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Underwear Fashion in Detail"

Looks like a great addition to a costumers library! My daughter does historical costuming and it would be great for her. She makes corsets from the various time periods and finds them very comfortable to wear. I'd enjoy the book myself! Thanks for the opportunity.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Horrockses Fashions: Off-the-Peg Style in the '40s and '50s"

My daughter loves to design her own patterns with the 40's and 50's influence. She'd make great use of this and It'd make a fantastic addition to her library. I'd love the opportunity to give her something she may not know about yet! Thanks for the opportunity.
