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

This is going to be a great reference for anyone who wins it. I already have one of Connie's books and it's an important reference that I constantly use.

Re: Video: A Neckline Binding for Knits

I just did a similar neck edge finish and now I know how to sew it so much better. Thank you for this video.

Re: Clean-Finish a Curved Shirttail Hem

Thank you so much. This is a finish I'll need to use for my husband's shirts. PS. Don't tell him yet.

I'd love to watch this but we don't have PBS in Australia.

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

NY was my favourite place to visit - a sewers paradise. And I felt at home in Manhattan too.

Re: The Pink Horsie Jacket!

It suits you to a tee!
Thank you for a close up of the detailing. This is a really special find and not something that I would dream of finding in Australia.
It's an amazing jacket.

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

I'm making formal dresses for a couple of family weddings but I'd rather learn now the drape a long grecian style dress. One day maybe....

Re: A New Sewing Machine Concept

Does it really work?
I'd love to use this and see how it works. This would be worthwhile trialling on standard projects and those curves and small projects that normal sewing machines makes us struggle with.
I'm definitely going to glue some felt onto my machines. That's such a great idea to have the pin cushion on the machine:)) Just brilliant James.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Colette Sewing Handbook" by Sarai Mitnick

I've been watching bloggers rave about this book and start to use it. So I'd be stoked to get a copy and get cracking. Cheers and bubbles.
