    If I won this, it would be my most treasured tool. Right now, it is probably actually my laptop. I’m trying to teach myself new skills, and the internet is an amazing resource that I can pull up anytime I need help figuring it out!

    I’m assuming that you are giving away a dressform in whatever size the winner is, and not only the (Small) that you linked to. : /

    The one tool I use over and over again is my six-inch hem gauge with the sliding marker; I even have one in my carpenter’s bag at work.

    Oh wow. I have been looking at dress forms for months now! My most treasured tool would have to be my old, black singer sewing machine. It was my great great aunts’, and she sewed clothes on it for me, my mother, and my grandmother. I still use it today, and have sewn clothes for my son on it. I can always rely on it!

    a seam ripper is my best friend when it comes to sewing….maybe it shouldn’t be, but it does make fixing the inevitable mistakes so much easier!

    I would love to win this dress form! My most treasured tool are my stork embroidery scissors. I just love them and they make me happy every time I have some threads to snip.
