Sewing2enjoying writes: I have always loved ribbons and pretty trims of the feminine type. Mother made my clothes and always had to add something "pretty", especially ribbons. I have thought and thought about trying ribbon work and having this book would certainly satisfy that yearning. I am so thankful you are giving me the opportunity to win this book.

AthenaWeaves writes: Silk Ribbon is my passion. You know, Threads magazine came out when I was in high school sewing class just learning how to keep my seams strait without sewing my thumbs. My mom came home with the first issue and I was hooked. Threads became the bridge to attempting designer looks seen in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and WWD. The magazine is a regular part of my sewing routine as much as my sewing machine is. I’d write some more but I’ve gotta get going to get the stories in this next issue……
