I think it is sad that there are people in this work who abuse these sites to post scams. The one ad for 55 and over sent me spam, phone calls, intruder and hacker attempts to my computer and harassing phone calls saying that I won this if I would only by this. please is there some way to check these out and remove this ad from your site before someone gets significantly financially hurt/?

I'm new to sewing, and this site. I found it very helpful, and interesting. I read some really negative reviews, and I must say I totally DISAGREE. I will come back often, and can't wait to start on crafts. Thank you for being here.

Totally unfriendly site. I guess if I had about 4 hrs a day, I could find one item. The site (sorry) sucks!

I've made dresses, coats ect. but you can always use bags for projects as well as shopping. I'm really glad I found this place.

I am a beginner. I have had a sewing machine for about 20 years and all I did on it was sew patches on jeans and jackets, along with hems. This was so easy. I loved it. It took me 1.5 hours because I didn't know what I was really doing. But guess what, I DID IT and I am going to do another one. I'm loving it.

I'm going to Africa with a mission team this summer to a girls orphanage.. I've been looking for a pattern simple enough to teach the girls to sew. This looks like a great one. I'll ask for donations of pillowcases and have each girl make one for themselves. Maybe we'll fill them with supplies. Hopefully they can make some to earn some money for themselves. Thanks for the great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll send pictures!
