Hello, readers! Who doesn't love to win prizes? We sure hope you do, because every weekday from now through October 15, 2010, we'll be giving away great books to build up your sewing library!
Today, FIVE lucky winners will receive a two-book prize pack consisting of both Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings AND Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me.
THE WINNERS FOR THIS ROUND ARE:
My sewing has inspired my friends to start sewing, which is so fun!! They are now taking classes!!! It is fun to see what everyone else comes up with all by using the same set of skills. I love being able to bounce ideas off of my friends and knowing that you can always go to them for ideas on how to make things better. Anna Maria has the cutest baby ideas, I love her books!!
I don't sew socially, but it sounds like fun. Mostly, I sew when my kids are sleeping!

I love sewing and have a few friends who do also we post on FB our acccomplishments and call each other regularly about what we are making. I think the best thing I have learned about sewing is always remember that if you mess us there is a seam ripper within reach.No one is perfect it just takes tons and tons of practice.:)
I wish I had friends that sew! I have to do all my crafty chatting online. Would be nice to find a group of sewers to hang out with. I'm still a beginning sewer so can use all the help I can get.
Sewing sometimes seems to be a thing of the past. most of my friends say things like, "YOU Sew??". I love sewing though and will continue to do it for as long as I can. I actually made my first sewing machine when I was around 8 years old by putting together a few old ones that were left at a house we moved into. It was ugly to say the least but it sewed for about ten years so I cant complain. My grandmother was a sewer and she showed me many things. No I don't have any friends that sew and my grandmother has long past. but my children are trying to learn so that excites me.
