Muffin58 writes: I would love to win these in order to improve my existing sewing skills, and move up a notch from "home seamstress" to "Dressmaker." I have to adapt all my patterns to fit my large, pear-shaped figure, and I need to wear very well-fitting, well-made clothing to disguise some of my more noticeable figure flaws, so improving my technique would make this easier.

OmaAnnie writes: I would love to win these learning tools. I was so used to running to my Mom whenever I tried to make something and got stuck. My Mom is gone now so no one to run to. Wining this prize would be a lotto help alleviate my apprehension re: sewing. My computer is not from this machine so this I could refer to.

Can happily imagine lovely hours sharing these with my granddaughters. Ever notice how much you have forgotten when trying to demonstrate you methods to someone else?

I'd love love this book as it would help so much.
And my little white dog 14 had a mini stroke (she's going to be fine) but this would help more than I can say!

stitchingrandma writes: This looks like something anyone could use. I know I'd love to have this set myself because I know just enough to get by but am lacking many of the skills needed to make a great looking garment. I have never taken any sewing classes other than those I took while in high school many more years ago than I care to mention. lol Back then you learned minimal skills in sewing to make a very simplistic garment which was just enough but not much else. In sewing things for my granddaughter I have scrapped more than I've finished because I get stuck and frustrated. In my mind I can create things that are runway quality but in reality, they compare more to something you wouldn't want to wear out of the house. lol

momog writes: I would love to teach my new daughter-in-law to sew! She wants to learn but she lives too far away for me to teach her, so these DVDs would be the perfect solution! I am a very long time reader of Threads magazine where I learned so much, so I know the quality will be there! Thank you for the opportunity!
