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

Ever since I was in Connie's class I have wanted her books. I was only able to purchase her grading book and ruler. My daughters and I are three very different shapes and sizes and I could save a lot by not having to buy so many patterns. My style is business casual.

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

Is facebook the only way one can enter the contest? I will not join or have anything to do with facebook.

Re: Win a One-Year Threads Insider Membership!

At first, I didn't think I needed access to Insider. Then I tried out the free session. Now, I don't know how I can be without Judith, Louise, Kenneth, et al and their descriptive video tutorials.

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

Re: Designers Create Garments for Amy Butler Trunk Show

The problem is not with the designers or their patterns. It is that Amy Butler's colours and prints remind us too much of the house dresses and aprons our mothers and grandmothers wore to cook and clean in. We wouldn't be caught dead in them.

Re: How to Miter the Inside Corner of a Hong Kong Finish

Kenneth, you have come up with a brilliant solution again.

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

My daughters and I are three different shapes and sizes. Having only one dress form, this book would be the answer to my dreams.

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

What a perfect way to enjoy the last days of summer. Reading a mystery involving sewing. These are two of my favourite ways to spend time.

Re: A New Sewing Machine Concept

Everything old is new again. There were hand crank machines in the early 1900's. Obviously designed by a non-sewer with limited understanding of the craft. Does not look to be very functional but rather very frustrating to use. Keep on trying after you take some sewing lessons.
