Re: Two-book Giveaway

Tried to edit my original reply, but couldn't. My favorite is cotton in its many permutations - lawn, twill, interlock, jersey. Very versatile for my lifestyle. I can't wear wool, and don't want to wear poly. I would love to use silk, but am usually to cheap to buy silk.

Re: Two-book Giveaway

Those books look awesome. It would be fantastic to have them.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sew Smarter, Better & Faster"

Press, press, press! Press the fabric beforehand and press every seam while sewing. Things turn out much better.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Sew Red"

I need to start eating better and exercise. Sew more to keep stress down, also. I am much happier when I sew and it helps reduce stress.

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

I would love to win this book! It is on my bucket list to learn how to drape ... at some point!

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

I love Louise Cutting's videos. I have watched quite a few of them through the Insider, but having the videos would be fantastic. If I don't win them, someday I will buy them, but I just can't do that right now.

Also, Louise's patterns and especially their instructions are very good.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Power Sewing Toolbox 1 and 2" by Sandra Betzina

I would love to have these books to help me with my sewing. I have heard so many people rave about her books, videos and classes, that I would like to have these books to help me be a better sewer.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty"

I think Alexander McQueen's work is terrific. It may not always be 'mainstream' but the beauty and imagination of his work is stunning. This book is on my wish list.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Roberto Capucci Art Into Fashion"

What an amazing use of fabric! I would love a chance to win this book.

Re: A Fashionable App

This is cool. Hopefully, sometime they will come out with an app for the Android also. One can only hope.

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

Oh, my gosh, I would love to have this set! I have a lot of the magazines, but do not have all of them. This would complete the set for me.
