  1. Oh my stars and garters, what a smoking hot give-a-way. Thread, such sweet candy to a seamstress. You bettcha I'm coming out of lurkdom to comment and have an opportunity to win this fabulous assortment. Thanks to Cooper and to Anna!
    Cheers, Jane

  2. May I just say I would NOT recommend anyone buy a machine from Coopers – I had a nightmare when I tried to buy one, if anyone wants to check out Mr Cooper's service history, then google the company as I am by far not the only one who had a bad experience… the man is a lunatic who abuses customers. I was sent 2 faulty machines and Mr Cooper had a go at ME when I complained and hung up on me. I did get a refund though.

  3. Honestly, I just googled Coopers again and am quite concerned that this company are using Sew Retro to garner custom when they are offer such BAD service. They must have some successful transactions as they would not be able to keep operating I suppose, but I urge anyone who is thinking of buying something to research the company first to make their own mind up.

  4. Wowee, I sure wouldn't mind winning that. What a great prize! Well, here's me hoping. I've never won anything, so this would great. Fingers crossed.

  5. Me too please! I never ever have the right thread and then when I buy it I never buy enough. This is the answer to all my problems.

  6. Ops!!I commented on the wrong post!! SO sorry for that!!
    Please, count me in!! I commented in the other post on this amazing giveaway…sorry…
