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

What a DREAM PRIZE! I literally need these videos. Here's why. I have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). One of the symptoms of CFS is something called "Brain Fog". My brain doesn't work the way it used to. Sewing has been a passion of mine for a long time. Right now I sew simple things because I can't sort out all the steps of more difficult projects. I want to sew a collar onto a blouse and get beautiful results. I want to do a lapel on a jacket and tailor the jacket to fit. I want to learn how to work with bust darts because I can't purchase a T shirt that fits. Owning Louise's videos would allow me to watch over and over until I was able to do it myself. Louise is a star seamstress. Her instruction is so complete. She makes it look easy. It would be so wonderful for me to sew something and have someone ask me where I purchased it and be able to answer "I made it".

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: Quilt Your Stash!

I'm the other "JoAnn" Fabrics. At least that's what my friends say. My stash has grown over the years and I think of it as family. Each piece has a soft memory for me - sort of like looking at photos of my children when they were young. If you dug through my stash and pulled out any fabric I could tell you why I loved it, why I bought it, what I made, or what I still intend to make. My stash is still growing and my husband still loves me!
