SewCarol writes: This would be a wonderful book for any sewer, but I'd really love to be able to give it to my niece. Her gift to herself after graduate school was a beautiful Janome sewing machine that she has used to make gorgeous pieced pastoral vestments. She's finally taking an interest in sewing clothes, but she's always learning new techniques for smocking or applique.

Secretary writes: I have retired, widowed, moved house 4 times in 18 months, downsized and now I can get back into the sewing mode- but as it's a long, long time since I sewed except mending etc. everything has changed. All the new words and methods are confusing and do not make sense to me. This book would be a godsend and would certainly help me to get back into the swing of things. If I sew a dress now it really looks like "home sewn" and I would so much like to look a little professional and in style. Thank you for this opportunity to try for the book.

krysia31 writes: I've seen a preview of this book on our public library website. This would be a wonderful reference to have on hand fulltime. It addresses the entire creative sewing process from start to finish and beyond. All the Taunton books are quality products and this is no exception. Our public library has only 7 copies of this reference and a long waiting list for borrowing it >>> 63 names so far. Borrowing it for 3 weeks at a time is not enough. I would love to have a copy of my own, however, since our home is overflowing with books, my husband, an e-book fan, has introduced a strict moratorium on hard copies. Only gifted books find a place on our crammed shelves now. I can only hope!

All three have been sewing since they were about 8 or 10. All can use a sewing machine and whip up some pretty neat things. I am so grateful to my mom for having taught me. I also teach children in after school programs how to hand sew, doing dollmaking etc - and teach a class called "survival sewing for you" - which saves lots of people lots of money on repairs...and also saves the environment, because they aren't throwing away every little thing beacuase its missing a button or something.

I've been sewing since I was 6 - and I taught all my kids to sew. Two sons (now in their 3o's - who have "FABRIC ONLY" scissors, as does my daughter.) All three have been sewing since they were about 8 or 10. All can use a sewing machine and whip up some pretty neat things. I am so grateful to my mom for having taught me. I also teach children in after school programs how to hand sew, doing dollmaking etc - and teach a class called "survival sewing for you" - which saves lots of people lots of money on repairs...and also saves the environment, because they aren't throwing away every little thing beacuase its missing a button or something. I hope to win....I know its a lottery -- so good luck to us all!

I collect all things "Threads" - from back issues of magazines to virtually every publication offered that I can afford to purchase! I constantly find updated methods in various sewing disciplines and am inspired to try new ideas and designs after 40+ years of sewing! I've come a long, long way from my grandmother's treadle sewing machine where I learned at age 8!

I've made my children clothes, quilts for the beds and the walls and given away to my nieces, nephews and great-nieces & nephews. I do so love to sew and am very happy when someone appreciates what I've done. You never know everything about sewing and I am still learning new things all the time. This book will help me do just that.

fannipauline writes: Hello - I am 80 years old and have been sewing since I was about 8 years old. I started on my grandmothers treddle machine and used it until I got a new Singer in l958. I made clothing for my 3 girls and a son and my hubby. In later years I used it for crafting and I could literally "make my sewing machine DANCE"...........I have gone a few years now and not sewed so much, but very recently bought myself a Janome and I ama going to learn to quilt......Many have said "why would you bother at 80" I say "why not".......I am extremely young at heart and hands and am always doing something new to combine with all of my something old. I am thrilled you have the sewing with shears and how to do it. I want to learn how to make all those darling fabric roses you see on so many things now days. I would love to have the book and learn even more. I worked an art class this past winter with 5 - 11 years old and loved it.

eviej writes: I am a sewing novice -- my one-year old embroidery/quilting sewing machine sits virtually unused because I am SCARED of it! The technology it's capable of is alarming to me, and so far I've only been able to sew a straight seam and make a quilted placemat (which was mostly straight seams). The machine can do so much more, but I am terrified of it. I want to make so many things - gifts, decorate my house, sew clothes -- but I don't know how. The sewing machine manual is quite intimidating and I have yet to successfully embroider anything. But I keep trying!

This book would be a God-send! I need an all-encompassing "sewing guide" to help me learn how to sew and utilize all that my sewing machine is capable of.

I hope I win the book so I can start doing and making all the projects I'm dreaming of!

Thank you.
