Re: Book Giveaway: "Never Been Stitched"

I'm always looking for new craft projects to make with my grand children, this book looks like it's got some new ideas in it that we haven't tried yet and that are quick enough to keep their attention!! Sometimes I can get one interested but lose the the other one to boredom!! They range in age from 4 to 11. This would be such a great book for us!!! If I don't win, how can I buy it?

Re: Book Giveaway: "The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook"

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this book! I am an avid sewer since I was about 8 years old, starting with Barbie doll clothes, now I am in my 50's and still love to sew! I am also now teaching my grandchildren to sew and several of my children have now decided to join in the learning as well, and this book would come in really handy in the teaching process!

Re: Project Runway 9: "Finale - Part 2"

I am really glad that Anya won, her outfits were really nice! Sewing for only a short time or not, she knew what she was doing and knew how to design. I agree with the above poster about Josh's outfits, I didn't like those shorts especially, they were really stupid looking and very ugly, I don't know anyone who would actually wear something like that. I agree also about the uneven cuts, I think they just look like they ran out of time to measure for a proper hem! Most of us can't wear an off the shoulder, one sleeved dress either. I am older and no longer working but even for social settings I wouldn't wear a lot of the outfits, but I blame the judges for that, when the designers make something that is "normal" they get critiqued for not making it stylish enough! I loved some of Viktors outfits over the season, he really made some nice, tailored jackets and dresses that I could actually wear. I would like to see some of his designs out in stores. I would wear a lot of what Anya designed, I live in Southern California and I would take advantage of the flowy, fun, summery designs. It is hot so much of the year here that I would get a lot of use out of those clothes, and they look very comfortable! My question to the designers and even to the judges is what is with the weird up-swing pockets on the skirts this year? I saw them on a few of the outfits but I have also seen them in magazines. If anyone that is of average size wore those it would make our hips look ginormouos! Or our thighs, depending on the location of the "pocket". I think that if Viktor didn't have half of his outfits for the last challenge in the sheer fabrics, and as the previous writer said: worn just over the underwear; if he had been true to most of what he has done all season, he may have been able to win! I think maybe the pressure got to him in the end. He shouldn't have added those sheer things to the collection!
