    I really prefer hard copy patterns, whether purchased or I draft them. E-patterns are good too, although some can be a little iffy on the drafting. I started sewing at age seven and started drafting my own patterns at age ten, which came in handy later in life when making costumes for little theater.

    Seems the integrity of these ‘giveaways’ has been called into question by some members. Winner declared before the close date?
