Re: Win Seasons 1 & 2 of Teach Yourself to Sew on DVD

I learned to sew a little when I was a teenager, but didn't have anyone to show me the finer points or help me adjust commercial patterns which was so frustrating. Then I lived without access to a sewing machine for many years. I've just bought a new machine, so now I would love to reexplore the world of sewing and see if I can acquire the skills and techniques that eluded me so many years ago. This DVD set would be a great start!

Re: Book Giveaway: Threads Sewing Guide

Is this a totally new Taunton book or a compilation of information that's been published elsewhere; ie, in Threads or in previous books? Taunton's sewing guides are what I go to first when I have a question.
