Re: Fall 2014 Color Trends Abandon Typical Palette

The bight cobalt might do, but the other colors are all WRONG for me. I look best in clear tones.

Re: Christine Haynes Pattern and Book Giveaway

The Emery dress with a fitted waist would suit my special husband to a "T". He always wants to know where my waist is.

Re: Cheryl Kuczek Pattern Giveaway

It would be fun to make a new bag for shopping. I use the ones that are generic for groceries each week. Something special would be an eye catcher.

Re: Sew Better with Staystitching Fundamentals

I always was taught to sew down one side of the neckline to the middle and stop to begin again at the neckline come down the other side. This helps to eliminate the pull/tension that might result as you make the curve. The same would hold true for any rounded area that needs stay stitching.

I am disappointed that I can not read or download this on my computer. I do not have a mobile device.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Patternmaking Made Easy," Third Edition by Connie Crawford

I am 78 years old, 5'2" and I am not into clothes/dresses above my knees nor ankle length/dragging on the floor. I like classic designs and being able to draft/change patterns of clothing suitable for me would be wonderful. I have made clothing for all members of my family, but am less than happy with many styles today.

Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

I have been ironing for 65+ years. My tip, remember there is a difference between ironing and pressing. An Oliso iron would make the task so much simpler for a senior citizen.

Re: Fabric Giveaway: Celebrating Grand Central Terminal's 100th year

I have been there once on a bus trip - it seems a long time ago. My grandparents came thru Ellis Island and I would love to see their names on the wall around the Statute of Liberty. Shopping for fabric would rank right up there of desires on my bucket list and being able to use fabric picturing all the landmarks would be WONDERFUL.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

I am always looking for additional/new sewing information/how-tos. I have been sewing for many years and it is part of my "therapy". A happy sewer/embroiderer is a happy wife.

Re: Project Runway Season 11: Episode 6, "Senior Fling"

As a 77 year old who still likes to dress well I found most fashions "not for me" Michelle's dress would look the best on me but perhaps with a sleeve. The others would be just dumpy, the pant suits stylish, but too tight fitting.

Re: Cover Stitching 101

I have a serger, wish I had the cover stitch machine too.

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

I have an old Vogue sewing book (probably late 50's edition well used. I would love to win an up-to-date sewing guide as I get back into some garment sewing.
