Re: Book Giveaway and Free Pattern Downloads: "The Magic Pattern Book"

This looks like a really interesting twist on utilizing patterns. I'd love to give it a try!

Re: Enter Threads Storage Solution Giveaway Sponsored by

It would be great to have visible storage for all my notions & tools. I like being organized and Go-Organize has some nice looking & practical storage options.

Re: Christine Haynes Pattern and Book Giveaway

I love the look of the Emery Dress-- and it's probably a good choice for a woman of my age!

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Use a clapper to press seems when doing quilt piecing to help keep the seams flat.
I would use this iron for everything, definitely on the quilt I am planning for my bedroom.

Re: Book and DVD Giveaway: Claire B. Shaeffer's "Couture Sewing: Tailoring Techniques"

After quite an absence from sewing, I have an intense desire to learn more about proper fitting and tailoring, as I never really understood the ins and outs of it in my younger days. It would be fabulous to win Claire Shaeffer's book since she is such an expert in the field!

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

I am a mystery fan-- it is a mystery to me how the author of these books will incorporate sewing, but I'd like to find out!

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

As a sewer who has been away from it for awhile, these books would be a huge help in getting my skills back. (have you ever noticed how some people's names fit their profession, such as Louise CUTTING?)

Re: Facebook Giveaway: The Colette Sewing Handbook

It would be nice to enter your giveaway without having to use Facebook. I am not a Facebook user & don't plan on being one.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

What a great resource this would be! I always wait for my next Threads magazine with great anticipation!
