  24. beejeegay | | #24

    I am fully dependent on Thread's Magazine for instructions for sewing as there are no resources in my area that I know of to learn sewing skills; so winning this series would be a tremendous help.

  25. meri_designs | | #25

  37. leahl | | #37

    I would love this set of DVD's. Not only is Louise a wonderful teacher, but Threads keeps on top of the sewing world by offering these DVD's and lessons in the magazine. They would be a great help to me as I am showing my sewing students how to approach sewing steps in a different way than the pattern instructions show

  38. Onyx147 | | #38

    When I think of Ms. Louise Cutting, I think of sewing poetic genius. This young lady makes even the most difficult reasoning of sewing anything and I mean anything from wool to silk and everything in between using techniques that I wouldn't put together. It's been ten years since I've sewn anything and I know Ms. Cutting's help would be greatly needed and appreciated by myself.

    I've had the distinct pleasure of snooping (using one of her phrases) her first DVD. Slow down, I've watched her presentations here on the Threads website. I happen to truly love Threads Magazine and I've joined "Threads Insider." Now, that's where I found Louise and her wisdom and knowledge. I would feel very blessed to receive Ms. Cutting's wonderful DVDs. She has a great way of looking at garments from the inside first.

  39. cecine | | #39

    It will be a amazing bundle to win. Louise Cutting is my favorite teacher. It's simple to understand. I hope I'll win.

  40. SusanInBoston | | #40

    I'm returning to sewing and improving my skills so that I can teach girls how to empower themselves without having to buy (literally and metaphorically) someone else's idea of who they are. The videos in this series that I've seen on the site are great, and I'm always eager to learn more.

  41. user-1034845 | | #41

    I have attended a Louise Cutting demonstration/trunk show at my Sewing Guild and would enjoy having her DVDs.

  42. Boosews | | #42

    I love all of Louise Cuttings videos. She is very good at explaining sewing techniques that is very understandable.

  45. smockinglynn | | #45

    DVDs are the next best thing to taking a class. Louise Cutting has some wonderful techniques and it would be great to win this set.

  46. SewWhatLilly | | #46

    I have watched a few of the DVDs from Threads and they are great. I always enjoy learning from the Masters. It's one thing to read about a technique, but much better when you see it done. Kind of like the concept "A picture is worth a thousand words. . ." Thanks for this Give Away opportunity.

  47. user-1148488 | | #47

    I've gotten back to sewing after several years. I would love to own Louise's DVDs. They would take my garments from 'So-So' to 'Sew Fabulous!'
    Thanks, Ann

  48. KMOM1993 | | #48

    I would like to win to update my sewing skills.

  49. hpsauce | | #49

    These are far better viewing than televisions programming... And what a great way to keep the art of sewing alive today...by having the best teach her techniques to others.

  50. sonshinesewciable | | #50

    Sewing is a pleasure again when I use Louise's straightforward techniques!

  53. AdaSharon | | #53

    Love these DVD's. I have watched them a number of times as an Insider member.

  54. NewRenaissanceWoman | | #54

    Since I train seamstresses, these DVDs would save some of my time teaching new techniques as well as a resource for new techniques to use in my designs

  55. susan718 | | #55

    I have been sewing for many years, but haven't had any classes since high school in the 60's (have taken quilting classes, but much different than garment making). I know that my skills could use some modernization. Thanks for the giveaway.

    [email protected]

  56. user-1144885 | | #56

    I have watched these dvds and think they are great. I stopped sewing for about ten years for some reason unknown to me now. I now realize how much I missed it. I had to teach myself to sew. My mom was a wonderful seamstress but I wasn't interested in my teens when she tried to teach me. I thought I would always be able to learn from her later but I lost her when I was only 25 years old. I went to work in a bank when I was 26 and they wanted me to dress nice but the pay wasn't enough to do that so I taught myself to sew. I am now 66 years old and still have so much to learn.

    I would so love to have these dvds to refer to for the answers to my many questions. I am now retired and my sewing has become so much a part of my life. I want to learn to do it the best that I can.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my comment.

  57. duiker22 | | #57

    As a novice, these would help me a lot!

  58. Lynne_B | | #58

    I'm a knitter who is learning to sew. I would like to combine the two crafts into interesting garments, and think this set would greatly help me improve my sewing.

  59. Simsal | | #59

    Chei!!! I will cry blood if I miss this opportunity! I made up my mind to be a sewer and in less two weeks when I was giving the privilege as an Insider to watch all of these videos, then, I sew like a pro. I have watched "teach to sew" season 1&2. All these giveaway videos. In fact, I didn't regret it at all. Am a Nigeria graduate of Geography who have great passion for sewing but don't know where to start. But threads magazine has helped to bring out the dream in me in less two weeks as an Insider. Am not teasing but am just saying I know the value of these DVDs. Imagine what it will be like to have all of these in my library! Indeed, I would be delighted if I have them. Otherwise, P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C if I don't have them.

  60. sewmydreams | | #60

    I am always trying to expand my stitching abilities and learn new methods. This is why I subscribe to Threads...it's just like a textbook of sewing techniques. This series of DVDs looks great and would be like having the professor right in my sewing room giving me personal instruction. I have seen her patterns and work at her internet site http://www.thesewingplace.com
    She's inspirational!

  65. SewGirl86 | | #65

    I have taught myself about fashion design and how to sew mainly from borrowing or renting textbooks and DVDs—even my sewing supplies, fabric, and sewing machine was given to me by my generous mom.

    Winning the Louise Cutting DVD package would be great because it would be the first sewing learning tool I did not have to rent or borrow.

  70. user-1084521 | | #70

    What a great addition to my sewing library this would be! I am always trying to broaden my knowledge of sewing, especially tailoring outfit! Would love this collection.

  71. ogarc | | #71

    I have been relearning how to sew for the last couple of years. In the process I bought a new sewing machine and a new serger and gave my old, still perfectly useable, machines to my daughter. She lives 3000 miles away from me. I visit her several times a year and she always has questions about sewing. I also help her long distance.
    Now my new daughter-in-law is asking for my daughter and me to teach her how to sew. They both live within driving distance of Stone Mountain and Daughter and I have paid for sewing lessons for them.
    These DVD's would be a huge asset in furthering my skills and theirs!

  72. user-1122811639 | | #72

    Ihave returned to sewing after an absence of too many years. I want and need to update my skills and sew for the body I have no instead of the one I had when I was in my 20s. I have watched a few clips of these videos and they are marvelous! What a wonderful resource!!!

  73. Ada_B | | #73

    this set of DVD's with Louise would be fabulous to have..... her instructions are clear and the knowledge she shares is wonderful. As I'm now sewing more for myself instead of crafts, this set would be such a boost to my skills.

  74. user-1144701 | | #74

    I'm ready to take my sewing to the next level! This is just the kind and quality of information I need to do that. Thanks for being such a great resource.

  75. arefaces | | #75

    I am a beginner Fashion and Merchandising Major in Washington, DC. I have feel in love with sewing, but my school only offers it as an intro class as clothing construction 1 and 2. This course is on the retail side and I see it is so much move to learn. I feel as if I am on my own. I have been using youtube, searching on the web to find anything that will start with me from basics to a point were I can speak the language of sewers and utilize my baby lock sewing machine (Melody) which I earned by winning a scholarship in school. I am 46 and this is my first degree in college and most of my friends say sewing is a waist, but its soothing and enjoyable to me... I mess up a lot of fabric learning on my own, but I know if I win the DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4, I will be well on my way to a exciting and rewarding career.

  76. dolinbliss | | #76

    I love Threads and would love to learn all the tips and techniques that Louise Cutting DVD's could show me. I learn a lot from books and online, but it would be wonderful to see videos and the techniques in action.

  77. user-289835 | | #77

    Living in a small town makes DVD's a must to learn sewing techniques.

  78. StitchFree | | #78

    I could use these techniques. My mother taught me to sew, but she HATED sewing. She only sewed out of necessity. As a result, most of my sewing skills have been learned from workshops and being shown. It would be great to pick up some skills from someone who really knows how to sew.

  79. restlesslegs | | #79

    I subscribe to your magazine for ideas in sewing and winning The Louise Cutting DVDs bundle would assist me with better ways of sewing. My daughter just bought me a DVD player so I am prepared to win this wonderful gift. Not only will I use the DVDs but my grand daughter wants to learn to sew and we can share the great ideas from the DVDs.

  80. jzzl | | #80

    I'm returning to sewing after 40 years of making almost no clothing, though for 20 of those years I was making quilts. But quilts are flat, don't have facings, and only have darts when I forget to use my walking foot and something puckers.

    Now that I'm getting my feet wet with garment sewing again, I'd like to learn all the tricks, tips, and tools that have developed over the past 40 years.

  83. SewDarlene | | #83

    This collection would be awesome to have. I have viewed Louise Cuttings videos on the Threads site and I am blown away by how much you learn from her. These dvd's would help me get the urge to try to better my sewing skills. Since my family members don't have an interest in sewing, Louise would be great teacher! I hope you will consider me.

  96. user-1151635 | | #96

    It has been some time since I sewed garments. I need clear, easy to follow solutions to fitting garments. I like what I have seen of Louise Cutting's instructions. Wonderfully easy to follow! I especially am interested in alterations since my body is no longer the same as it was 30 years ago !?!

    There are so many things to learn I don't even know where to start! A list of the skills and techniques I need, complete with when and where guidance *and* step-by-step instructions I can actually see (over and over if necessary) is the perfect solution. I would get some serious mileage out of this DVD set.

  104. dbtomczak | | #104

    Pictures in a book or magazine, no matter how detailed, don't always show me clearly enough how to do it "just so." I have learned something new from each of the excerpts of the DVDs that I have seen so far. It would be wonderful to have them to view whenever I want.

  105. fabtester | | #105

    Would love to win this DVD set to improve my skills.

    How exciting to have the opportunity to learn from such an expert as Louise Cutting, and to have not only her written explanations, but the visual demonstration of these expert sewing techniques! I would love to have to opportunity to improve my skills!

    I am always eager to learn better fitting and construction techniques, especially as I have several fitting challenges. The articles I have seen from Louise Cutting are always clear and helpful,and having this set of information so readily available would make my sewing much more rewarding.

    Knowledge is power and the Insider Techniques DVDs provide a wealth of knowledge. They are simply the best. One can never know too much.

  121. Coelle | | #121

    It helps immensely to have visual accompaniment to oral instruction. It's the next best thing to personal tutoring! I'm always looking to improve my sewing game,& love to share my knowledge with my many friends who also sew.

  122. user-1109481 | | #122

    I would be over joyed to win Louise's DVD's because I have learnt alot of great ideas from her at different seminars and shows that she has been on. Louise explains things so well even this old brain can grasp it.

    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.

    My sewing room is getting set up after a couple year remodeling experience. I've sewn for over 50 years and the knowledge is still there ... getting my hands to follow the head will take a bit of doing. Have most of Louise's patterns and can't wait to get started. Reading directions is one thing, but SEEING the directions brings the technique alive. I've sewn for my kids, my grandkids and church. This time the sewing focus will be on me and my husband. There are new fabrics out there, new products like the interfacings & adhesives. There are new techniques designed for these new fabrics - I need to learn them all again. I'd love a set of Louise's videos to help me do that. Pops doesn't know it yet, but there's also a new sewing machine in my near future too!!!

  129. sewsam | | #129

    Although I consider myself an advanced sewer, reading or watching anything to do with sewing will always improve improve my skills. Since these DVDs are by Louise Cutting, well, that just doubles the fun.

    These DVDs will get them well on their way with good habits, and tricks to make their creations better.

    Hope I win!

As a tall, multi-sized (tops are 2-3 sizes smaller than bottoms) home sewer, I do my best to make custom-fit clothing or tailor ready-made, but what I know is only simple things. Learning new techniques can only make my efforts better! Videos explain so much more than books with pictures can, and this set has so many things I have been wanting to learn.

  152. user-680803 | | #152

    I have returned to garment sewing after a several year hiatus. My daughters are now grown women with fitting issues that I didn't have to address when they were little girls and I was making their dresses. "Threads" magazine has been a great help so far, as well as the "Threads Fitting DVD Series" and some other resources I've gotten from you, or at your recommendation. I think this "Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting DVD series" will be the next step to help me fashion lovely clothes for my lovely daughters in their professional lives. Thank you!

    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".

  243. KBTsewer | | #243

    I confess that I'd never heard of Louise Cutting, (I live in Scotland), until, many years ago, I took out a Threads subscription and, more recently, became a Threads Insider (and what good value that's turning out to be).
    I've been sewing for many years and consider myself to be very skillful.However, as they say, you're never too old to learn something new and I've been learning lots of new skills by watching Louise's DVD's on Threads Insider.
    Some lucky person is going to win the whole set and I'm just hoping that someone is me. After all you have to be 'in it to win it!'

    As I find myself job-hunting due to the impending closing of the company I work for, I've decided to brush up my skills learned at my mother's knee many years ago. These DVDs would be a blessing. You never know how/when these skills will come in handy.

    This DVD set would immensely help with my sewing skills. I have sewing for my children for a while, but have recently ventured into sewing for myself. This is more challenging and I need to up my skills for sure.

  252. msewwhat | | #252

    I can appreciate the quality that must have gone into the making of these instruction DVD's as I have followed Louise Cutting on shows such as "Sewing With Nancy," "America Sews with Sue Hausmann" and "Martha's Sewing Room."

    Even if I don't win this contest I plan on ordering some DVD's because it gives me the freedom to watch specific techniques again and again until I "get it." Also, I totally appreciate Louise Cutting's way of explaining sewing techniques with concise and clear instructions. I like the way she shares techniques she has learned through trial and error. She has been sewing for a long time and has a lot of experience to share.

    She is also a very cool person.

    I recently became "An Insider". It is by far more than worth the price of admission! I am a seasoned seamstress and find that there is always much to learn at any stage of life.

    These DVDs look terrific and would be such a great help. I have so much to learn. I haven't really been doing much sewing because I don't know enough to start projects, or complete them for that matter. It's hard to learn on one's own without any guideance. I would love to win. Thanks for thet giveaway.

    I am a self-taught garment sewer and have been at it for many years. Getting Industry Insider Techniques would be amazing! Louise Cutting teaches brilliantly. Thank you for this opportunity. I have my fingers crossed!

  258. daglag | | #258

    My mother taught me to sew when I was very young, but she didn't teach me how to alter patterns or couture finishing techniques. I stopped sewing while going to grad school, and now have time to start again. Since I'm not a perfect pattern size I need help altering patterns to fit. And I'd like to make tailored clothes for work. The DVD set would be extremely helpful in enhancing my skills. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  259. daglag | | #259

    Our 4-H clothing project includes our whole county. We invite all the project members from each club to meet in one central location where we have a room full of youngsters (sometimes 20 or more) learning to sew. This collection would be a wonderful resource and teaching aid for our volunteer leaders and members.

  272. tuckersmeout | | #272

    I learned to sew at my mother's feet, on an old Singer foot-powered treadle machine, many, many years ago. She was an excellent seamstress and tailor. I have not updated my techniques since then, for the most part, and would love to have the chance to do so with this series of DVDs. There is such a difference between "home-made" and "custom-made" and these DVDs will help me bridge the difference.

  273. ldstang | | #273

    I've really enjoyed watching these on Insider and would love to have a set of my own for future reference. I've been impressed on her streamlined approaches to obtain quality and couture results. I've put to good use her clipping on curves - what a fast and great way to eliminate ridges!

    I purchased the Threads Magazine Fitting Series last year which was tremendously helpful in developing my sewing and fitting skills. The magazine is never disappointing so I can only imagine that this Louise Cutting series is outstanding especially considering her background in fashion teaching and pattern making. Even if my name isn't chosen for this give-away I'll have to start putting away that loose change to save up and purchase this series. . .Thanks Threads for all that you do for the Sewing Community

    I am the leader of an American Sewing Guild neighborhood group. We call ourselves the "Fabric Artists of Riverside."
    We are 30 members strong and like to not only lern new embellishment ideas but are interested in increasing our sewing knowledge. This video set would be a great resource for the members of our group plus whole the Riverside/San Bernardino Chapter of 190 women.

    I have been following Lousie for many years on Televison, Threads magazine, The Cutting Edge Patterns and her classes at Conventions. I like her quiet manner of teaching with authority and her sure knowledge of her subject. She is the best in the field and I love sharing her techniques with my sewing friends.

    I recently started my own alteration company and I do a lot of work with thee only high school drama club. I basically sew the costumes for $5 an hour. I consider it my part in giving back to the community, plus I love to watch the plays put on. I used to work for a boutique consignment shop where ladies would purchase an item if it could be taken in here or hemmed. I soon had my machine at the shop, and during my breaks I would alter their garments. After the consignment shop sold, I started doing alterations at home. Since I became permanently disabled with RSD, a neurological disorder, I sew when I am able to. I've always been striving to learn new techniques. The money I make from my work goes right back into my business buying notions, books, and machines. I recently switched bedrooms, and now my studio is in the master bedroom, to accommodate my 8' by 4' press and cut table. Living on an island my business is finally taking off do to word of mouth and my community service. Since I have good days and bad days, the bad days I spend reading and research, and would love to add this set to my collection.

    It would be so great to have these DVD's as I am 65 and disabled. I am unemployable but I can sew and I am going to try to make a living by sewing for others. I know all the basics of sewing but need help with custom fitting, alterations, and the tricks of the trade. I have a fairly new Brother Embroidery sewing machine along with the desire, excitement, and the sticktoitiveness to get it done. Either way, I will be studying and sewing until I get it right.

    Winning this set would be a second chance. I love to sew, but would like to know how the fashion world creates. When I was deciding what to be in high school... dinosaurs walked the earth... I wanted to be a fashion designer. Instead, I let my parents talk me out of going away to school and went to work in customer service. So now, all these years later, whenever I get a time away from work, you can find me in my sewing nook. I'd love to be able to sew great fashion, even if it is only for me to wear.

Sewed for the children when they were young.
    About 20 years ago took up sewing for my daughter, making skirts & blouses. The DVD give away Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4 would be used by three of us. thank you.

    I would like to own a complete (so far) set of Louise Cuttings DVDs to continue sewing at my best potential. When I see a video of her teaching a new or better way to make a seam or some other technique, I play the video over and over while I use the technique. I have a 30" doll that is my model so I can perfect the technique using inexpensive fabric before actually using it on my full-size garment. Thank you, Louise for sharing your secrets.

    What a bundle! I could probably use this more than most current sewists because I am returning to sewing after a long absence and have forgotten how to do many of the techniques I had faced without fear. Now not feeling so much confidence and would really like to learn again -- but do it *much better* this time. Perhaps I've grown more discerning now and couldn't be proud of anything I did not handle with authority.
    This bundle will give me that authority - and confidence!

    I recent got back in to garment sewing and have thoroughly enjoyed the access that Threads Insider has provided to research and learn techniques that make a better fitting garment. I have viewed the beginning of the Industry Insider videos and have been amazed at the techniques and ideas Louis shares....

    I admire Louise Cutting. She spoke to the Grand Rapids Chapter of the American Sewing Guild twice. I would like to review her techniques, so that I may incorporate them into my sewing projects. View on a CD is more effective than reading the material in a book. I would also use it as a teaching and review method for member of the sewing guild.

    Like several others who have posted here, I am rediscovering the joy of sewing (after about 20 years) and could really use a comprehensive guide. Currently my sewing library consists of the Burda Sewing Handbook, a Threads magazine subscription, Threads online, and a few select sewing magazines that I find from time to time at Barnes & Nobel. Unfortunately, I seem to be getting these magazines in the middle of various 5- to 8-part series articles on some of the basics with which I need help. This DVD series would certainly fill in the gaps.

  340. user-1125757 | | #340

    I want to win this CD package because I know that you can teach an old dog new tricks. With the exception of 1 dress for my son's wedding, I was away from garment sewing for about 25 years. I am so (sew?) enjoying learning and implementing new techniques and love getting tips from the pros!

    I would absolutely love to win these DVDs! After many years of trying to figure out the perfect fit with store bought patterns, I am teaching myself to draft my own patters. This collection would be an awesome tool!

  351. user-2009036 | | #351

    I want to make my own clothes in order get what I like. The
    problem is I am a novice at sewing so I need lots of help.
    I love Louise Cutting and having her DVD's would give me courage to use all the patterns and fabric I have bought.

  352. sewcheck | | #352

    Who wouldn't love to have Louise Cutting at their beck and call to aid in the creation of one's own fitted garment!

  353. user-1117685 | | #353

    Louise is such a great teacher,would be a great addition to my sewing library. A vert generous offer. Joyce

  354. fionac | | #354

    I LOVE the way Louise Cutting teaches. Her methods are straight forward, they are easy to understand (especially with the video)and she takes all the angst out of trying new procedures. Since watching her session on uneven mitred corners I ALWAYS use them on my shirts and jackets. As a result my corners are much cleaner and the garments look very professional (to my unbiased eye at least!!!).

    I can't wait to try the resizing technique for tops which I recently watched "inside". I would love to own all 4 DVD's so I can incorporate even more of Louise's wisdom into my sewing.

    Thank you Louise!

  355. lucky_cat28 | | #355

    I eagerly anticipate learning Louise's secrets!!

  356. user-2007023 | | #356

    What a great give-a-way! I really enjoy the Louise Cutting videos that I've seen on this site and would love to have all of them in my personal sewing library!

  357. user-950638 | | #357

    When my mother was alive, she would help me with my sewing and was always able to get me out of a jam. Since she has been gone I haven't sewn much, but recently decided that I wanted to get back to it. I'm a little rusty and love looking at Threads videos to get inspiration and help when I get stuck, it's not like I can ask mom. Louise does a great job explaining techniques and a collection like this would help so much with my confidence and provide concrete examples of how to do things. Would love to win this, and keep growing

  358. Karakins | | #358

    I'm a visual learner and love watching sewing videos. It's my favorite way to learn new techniques and review others.

  359. lesleej | | #359

    So much to learn! And such a great teacher! This would be a wonderful addition to the sewing room. I am itching to create, just thinking about it!

  360. Taenocat | | #360

    Oh, I would so love to win these! There aren't any sewing classes being offered for miles and miles from where I live. And I find it so much easier to follow from watching someone do something.

  362. Lovi | | #362

    I would love to have this in my library collection, not only for myself to use, but to share with my sewing buddies,

  363. sailcocktail | | #363

    Would love to expand my knowledge with this series!

  364. Soosewiets | | #364

    It'such a great series of DVD's which I would love to own and watch over and over again. Love from the Netherlands

  365. MackeyBoy | | #365

    Who wouldn't want to have Louise Cutting on hand for personal advice. Her classes are terrific, and with these I could "ask her to please repeat that" without slowing either her or the class down. Those classes are limited in time available, as you know, and it's impossible to get it all the first time.

  366. JBarry | | #366

    I saw Vol 1 & 2 at a friend's and was impressed with the tips that Louise provided. Have put these DVD's on my gift list but would love to have the opportunity to win them in the drawing.

  367. blmur47474 | | #367

    I started a Teen NeedleArts Guild and Summer Sewing Camp several years ago in the small Virginia town where I live. Some of my girls have now graduated and gone on to college, but they all still sew and design. I share my tips and tricks with all the young people who join us -- many from the pages of Threads and this newsletter. Having Louise Cutting and her amazing insider tips in our guild library would be a wonderful resource for my teen sewing-istas (and me,too, of course). We all love Threads and the Threads Newsletter. Keep 'em coming!

  368. leezee | | #368

    i want to win the series because it's way cool.

  369. user-1134693 | | #369

    I'm new to sewing. I would love to own these DVDs to expand my knowledge.

  370. Antjie | | #370

    DVDs is the best way to learn and Louise Cutting makes it easy to learn the tricks of the trade.Would love to have these DVDs at my disposal to watch over and over

  371. sewalliwant | | #371

    I would love to receive this DVD set - It would be like having a private lesson with Louise Cutting! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!

  372. joannab | | #372

    I would love to win the 4 volume DVD set because I'm always eager to learn more about sewing!

  374. arledesign | | #374

    What a wonderful series of videos....I have been sewing for decades and learning the insider information will renew my sewing methods ....how wonderful this would be!

  375. user-1023732 | | #375

    Wow! What a fabulous giveaway, I would love to win this because being largely self taught I find my teacher is often sorely lacking.

    I have sewn since I was 12. But enjoying improving my skills through online courses, DVDs, reading. Finally finding my passion. This set of DVDs would add to my expanding education.

    I started sewing just 3 years ago and I could always use some Industry Insider tips!!! These look amazing! Thanks!

  378. KtsMom | | #378

    I would love to win this set of DVD's by Louise Cutting!!! I have been sewing for over 30 years now, but I am a self-taught sewist...I learned all I know from Threads, and books by Sandra Betzina, Nancy Zieman and Susan Khalje. I read everything I can get my hands on! My fifteen-year old daughter is FINALLY wanting to learn to sew...my hope is that I can teach her all that I know, with the first rule being to LOVE sewing as much as I do. Thanks Threads for such a wonderful sewing family!!! Did I say I would LOVE to win???

  379. beetrice524 | | #379

    I have been sewing for many years, but this collection would be such a valuable addition to keep my sewing skills up to date. I would love to win this selection.

  380. asdfdghjkl | | #380

    I would love these videos. I so much want to improve my sewing skills. Thanks for the opportunity!

  381. SharonPicone | | #381

    This DVD set would be a great way to improve my sewing skills even further. Thanks for the opportunity to win these DVDs. Louise Cutting knows her craft!

  382. moynahan45 | | #382

    To win ONE Dvd by Louise would be Fabulous but to win 4 Dvd's - It would be Heaven. - Louise is the Queen of the sewing world and as I live in Australia, it would be like having Louise in my sewing room.

  383. user-1134526 | | #383

    I have been sewing for the past 30 plus years, but never have had training beyond the basic classes in high school and then I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to take a class on making my own patterns from a sloper. I would love to have these DVD's for the great resourses that they are.

    After just completing a two day "guerilla" garment construction class for a lined jacket from hand woven fabric. I came to the conclusion that I don't know nearly enough about garment contruction as I really need, and all the local classes available require me to quit my job to attend (and somehow that seems a bit drastic, you know?), so I am thinking THIS would be the next best thing, perhaps even better as it would allow me to replay the information over and over and over again! (slow learner?)

  386. afrati | | #386

    I've been on a sewing spree this summer with simple and easy garments. I've gained some confidence and now I'm ready to tackle the next two complicated projects: a winter coat and a glamorous evening dress. I need this series to help me get the knowledge and guidance to dive into sewing these two challenging pieces for my wardrobe. ;-)

  387. misfited | | #387

    Having seen snippets of these on the sewing shows, these techniques elevate the ordinary and provide the education to make that garment beautiful. This info isn't easily accessible in one collection, so this set will be very special and will motivate me to extend my skills to obtain extrordinary, professional results. !

  388. beacreative | | #388

    I have the first two dvd's of this series. I love them, they are so helpful. Even if I don't win, I will slowly buy the rest. I would recommend them for sure. Bea

  389. belindalee | | #389

    I would watch the whole set from end to end, because with sewing, you just don't know what you don't know.

    For example, I have had a mystery foot in my sewing box for years, okay decades. I happened upon a video of someone using it - the narrow hemmer foot, so I came to Threads to get the facts on how to REALLY use it. Now it's part of my regular arsenal. I can only dream about what new tricks I might learn from Louise's DVDs!

  390. abyester | | #390

    Being able to get sewing techniques from an industry pro like Mrs. Cutting would be awesome. I am so excited about the possibility and would cherish the DVDs.

  391. shelly123 | | #391

    louise is so talented, i wish i were just two steps behind her.

  392. user-1138829 | | #392

    I am ready to start taking steps toward a career change! I have been sewing my whole life (I'm 31 and I started sewing when I was 9!) but I work a boring office job. I want to get my skills as perfect as possible and start my own sewing business! These DVDs would really help me perfect my skills and help me change my life. :)

  393. julie999 | | #393

    I would love to have the DVD set for reference as I brush up my sewing skills.

  394. AdinaC | | #394

    I would love to have the DVD set. I have been teaching myself to sew and although I have gotten pretty good at home decor, I cannot seem to make my homemade clothes fit correctly (and I am using a dress form). I don't have a family member or friend to teach me or to give me advice. There are no classes where I live for apparel (only quilting) and the one class I found which is over an hour away is for kids only (I am over 40).... too embarrassing to contemplate! I have a couple of books, but I do not always understand what I am reading. It is better for me to see what I am supposed to do. I did watch a video by a clothes designer on how to make a scarf and my scarf came out perfectly, but it doesn't make my shirts fit. I would really love the chance to receive this DVD set. I'm not ready to give up on making my own clothes. Thank you.

    After years away from sewing, I yearn to begin anew. The "Insider Techniques" videos would be perfect inspiration.

    First off , Thank You to Threads Magazine! I have never read a magazine that I learned so much from and extremely enjoyed it also!!! I am in the process of collecting every issue from day one....... I recently found out that my very active life that I was living would come to a complete end if I did not have spinal cord surgery.... So I had the surgery and ended up having to have another four months later, which did not turn out well so during my year of recovery that I spent in bed I taught myself to hand sew and made a quilt, now not able to work no longer I have started sewing! I would love to take classes but the funds are just not available. I Love garment sewing and have been teaching myself, thru Threads Magazine and lots of sewing books from the library I am doing pretty good , so these DVD's would be so very helpful and greatly Appreciated! Thank You so much for the opportunity to win and hopefully own and cherish them! Sincerely Cheryl Henderson

  397. Carreesue | | #397

    I would love to be able to expand my techniques!

  398. oldpeacock | | #398

    I am learning to sew late in life and teaching myself with the help of others through available reference material. Sadly, I could have had the best teacher, as my mother was an artist with a needle and won awards as a young woman, but I am learning after I lost her.

    I have read several of Louis Cutting's articles and find great value in her expertise. I wish she was right next door so she could 'hold my hand' and guide me as I learn. I use my seam ripper as much as my machine and have learned to enjoy the process of learning to sew as much as the finished product.

    I would appreciate her guidance in the DVD's as an always available teacher.

    I recently met Louise at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo and bough 5 of her patterns. The fashions presented in the show were beautiful and totally my style. I would love to have this DVD set because I did not have time to take one of her classes. Great give away!

  401. Camielle | | #401

    I am teaching myself to sew. I have watched some of Louise Cutting's DVD's and they are just the best, most clearly illustrated DVD's there are in the industry. That is my #1 magical wish to win all of her sooooo needed and appreciated DVD's. Pick me, pick me, puleeeeze!!! Sincerely, Doris in Indiana

    My aunt introduced me to sewing when I was 9 years old. I took sewing in high school for a year and then I have sewed on and off over the years. I have been primary self taught except for the basics I got in high school. I have been enlightened by the articles and the insider information on making items. I have a dream of sewing for a living from my home. I would love to win this set because it will be so helpful. Thank you for offering this opportunity.

  404. Jbabytdb | | #404

    Hi! The DVD's sound like they are just what I need. I have sewn on and off for over 45 years, and you can never learn everything. There is always something you can learn when it comes to sewing especially. My last project was completely hand sewn as my neices baby only weighed in at 3lbs. and 7oz. It had been a while since I had hand sewn and outfit for anyone other than a doll for my 6 year old grand daughter. I hope I am chosen, I would have loved some lessons before my latest project. :)
