Looks like a very interesting book. You can always learn something new. I've been sewing since I was about 12 yrs old & still have alot to learn. I'm asking Santa to bring me a new machine this year.. mine is old & just don't sew good anymore.

I entered the sweepstakes, but the way my luck runs, I could have every entry but 1 in there & the one that I don't have will be the one to win. LOL
