Re: Win a Copy of Smart Fitting with Kenneth D. King on DVD

I would love to win because I just don't understand fitting. I've even watched a Craftsy class and I still don't understand how one translates exact fitting changes from a muslin to a pattern. All the pinching and pinning on the muslin doesn't make it look like it fits any better to me. Then how does one turn all those pinches and pinned sections into exact changes to a pattern? I don't understand how to do that and get it correct.

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

Who doesn't love to win? I would love to win a free one year subscription. That would be one less bill to pay.

Re: Video: How to Sew a Blind Hem

Great video, and I've looked at a lot to try and figure this out. This video shows exactly what I need. My purchased pants have the seam binding on them, so this literally shows exactly what I needed to know. The only small wish I have is that your videos were posted to YouTube, so I could subscribe to them or save them in my account for future reference. It's impossible to remember all the places where I run into really helpful videos. If they were posted to YouTube it would be so simple to find them again when I need them. Thanks much.

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

I would love to learn any couture sewing technique. I don't know any. I'm just a beginning sewer. Reading all I can and watching lots of online videos.

Re: Magazine Giveaway: Sew Home

Oh where do I start. My home was built in the 80's and has never been updated. It needs gutting and starting over.

Re: Mega Quilt Giveaway

The only quilting I've ever done was to make quilted fabric from some cotton fabric to use in a class I took. We made a quilted overnight bag. I want to learn to make quilts and have been reading magazines and blogs to learn how. Thanks for the opportunity to try and win.

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

I do love hand stitching, but I can't say I do very much. I am not very good at sewing so I don't make very many things. I'm hoping to take some classes this spring to become better. I am a voracious reader, but I find hands on work to be a better learning tool for me.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Quilt Love"

I don't have any quilting books. This would be great to own. Thanks for the giveaway.

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

These DVDs look terrific and would be such a great help. I have so much to learn. I haven't really been doing much sewing because I don't know enough to start projects, or complete them for that matter. It's hard to learn on one's own without any guideance. I would love to win. Thanks for thet giveaway.

Re: Giveaway: SewStylish Spring 2012 Fashion Sewing Guide

Stellar Machine Features would be of interest to me. I don't know much about my machine. All I really do it straight stitches. I have many feet and don't know what to do with any of them.

Re: Free Patterns for Three Apron Styles

Thanks KarenHM. That's what I thought. Hopefully somebody makes rolls that are 45 inches wide. That would surely be better than piecing all those 8.5 x 11 sheets together. Thanks for your help.

Re: Free Patterns for Three Apron Styles

How do I make the pattern from an 8.5 x 11 sheet? Do I look for a large roll of graph paper and try to recreate the pattern by drawing what I see in each of the tiny squares on the document I downloaded from your website? I'm sorry, but I just don't understand how to use your pattern.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

What a wonderful giveaway. I can honestly say I've never watched Project Runway or any of the other reality-type shows. They are just not interesting to me. But I would love to learn more about sewing. I'm not very good yet. Thanks much.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Quick Stuff to Sew"

I'm just learning to sew. I won't be making any gifts just yet. I've enjoyed looking around the website and have already learned a few things. Thanks for the contest.
