Re: Book Giveaway: How to Sew

I teach beginners how to sew and would consider this book as curriculum.

Re: Book Giveaway: "The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook"

Looks like a fun book!

Re: Win a Summer Dress/Romper Pattern by Melissa Watson

Scalloped hem and variations available within the pattern - love it!

Re: Book Giveaway: Threads Sewing Guide

Looks like this would be a good resource in my sewing classes. The students are always asking me about good reference books on sewing basics and beyond.

Re: What sewing tools can you not live without?

Wow! There are so many things that I like to use -- my thimble gives me pleasure when I'm hand sewing, a good pair of shears brings a smile when I'm cutting, the metal rulers and a sharpened pencil help with patternmaking/adjusting, my Bernina is my best friend when sewing by machine and the steam generator rules when it is time to press - which as we all know is often when sewing. =)

Re: Book Giveaway: Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing!
