    I have a beautiful step granddaughter that has become obsessed with zebras and she doesn’t know it yet but she has a pair of pants and possible a shirt coming her way. Not to mention some long overdue window treatments and items for the house to be done. So, long story short, I have tons of sewing coming up and looking forward to. The thread would be a great help.

    My daughter just received a new embroidery machine for Christmas. She has been learning to sew for her two babies just like I did for her when she was little. I have told her to get the best thread possible.

    I would love to win this thread for her to start out with a wonderful quality product from the very beginning.

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. I hope to win such a great prize, but want to congratulate whoever the winner is!

      No you read it correctly, I wondered also, which also makes me wonder about the integrity/honesty of these contests…

    I just watched a film called “Enchanted April.” The dresses were lovely. I want to use some of the shapes and details I saw in the costumes to add dresses to my wardrobe. Right now it is all pants and tops.

    I remember I once made a giant teddy bear. I went through 15 spools of Gutermann brown thread and hand sewn the whole teddy:) How about repeating this?:))

    I do all my sewing with Gutermann thread, so all of my anticipated 2012 projects (chair cushions, skirts, a swim suit) will be with Gutermann.

    My daughter and I would share the thread to make rag dolls and embroider which is something that she has wanted to do for a the past year now! We could make purses and so many other things that could illustrate the beautiful color of the threads we use. Definitely get ready for Valentines Day projects to make as well, then there is St. Patrick’s Day, then Easter,…etc. the holidays just all start pouring out again! WHAT CAN WE NOT DO WITH THEM?!?
