Re: Book Giveaway: "Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads"

I'm definitely a magpie & would love to win this book to use more of my stash productively.

Re: Book Giveaway: Quilting With a Modern Slant

I love the timelessness of quilting. I have been looking at real estate online here in NZ & am amazed at the beautiful modern bedrooms with "old-fashioned" quilts on the beds. Old designs but in modern fabrics & colours bring them right up to date. I'd love to do something like this but time constraints mean I need to learn time saving techniques that still produce a good looking end product. Hopefully this book will do that.

Re: Book Giveaway: Mini Quilts

I have been intending to make a patchwork quilt for several years now. This book of small projects would give me no excuse for not making a start at least, & hopefully to complete something beautiful that I can gift to someone.

Re: Book Giveaway: Threads Sewing Guide

I would love to win this book to update myself with all the newest developments since I first started sewing, both with unfamiliar fabrics & techniques. Also with 9 grand-daughters aged from 6 to 18 who are all showing interest in sewing from clothes for Barbie dolls to studying fashion design, I'm sure it would get lots of use.
