  1. Gerry Barrett says

    The Red Riding Hood cape is neat! And I like the fact you included sizes for both children AND adults! Love this site and would love a new machine!

  2. Rosette Wood says

    definitely need a new wad robe having a hernia makes it harder to feel comfortable in my current clothes.

  3. Doreen Arness says

    How cute the red riding hood cape is. Fantastic craft and sewing ideas on this web site. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Nargis kasmani says

    I have always dreamt of owning a Bernina sewing machine. My late sister owned one and I would find all sorts of excuses to use it.

  5. Carol says

    Really like the Wrapping Paper Organizer. So many ways to use that idea. Hope my hand-me-down machine will cooperate so I can work on one this weekend. The Bernina would be a blessing to create more and organize my sewing room and possibly my entry area…would be nice to finally have a home for umbrellas, gloves and hats in use for the season, and a “launch pouch” for things I need to take with me when I leave the house.

  6. Rosemary Rivas says

    I LOVE this project. It’s the perfect way to organize quilting rulers, sleeve board, yard sticks and other odd sized sewing/quilting tools. I can’t wait to convert a stool to store these things in my new sewing room I’ve been patiently waiting for over 30 years!

  7. Wende Lindner says

    I have been having so much fun seeing all the cool sewing ideas .Winning a new sewing machine or any one of the daily give prizes would be fantastic for me!

  8. CindyM says

    Wish I had a little girl to sew for. I have 8 grandsons. They won’t let me sew them skirts for some reason. LOL. Beautiful skirt though. I would love a new sewing machine though, because I do sew things other than skirts.

  9. maryln bonnell says

    I love sewing and just have found your website. our daughter passed away when her little girl was 16 months old. Our daughter sewed and now the child at 11 is hooked on sewing. I cannot afford a machine for her, so I hope to win one and pass it on so she can fulfill her dreams last Christmas I gave her fabric, pattern books and project books

  10. Jackie Branscum says

    I get the newsletters but don’t always take time to read them. We are really busy, my hubby still works full time and I do embroidery from home now that I am retired. On weekends, we work on our log home that we are building ourselves. Keeps me pretty busy. But I love the newsletters and hope to spend more time here in the future. I love Bernina and have a machine that is about 35 yrs old and it still makes the best stitch of all of my machines.

  11. Beth says

    Would love to have a new Bernia sewing machine. Haven’t had the opportunity to own one but always stop by the Bernia booths wherever I see them. That thread collection could always be used…love the thread.

  12. says

    i have gotten a lot of good tips from you all. now give me some good tips on how to remake my old machine in case i do not win this one. ha ha! i do need a new machine so i want to thank you for the chance to win this one.

  13. lpa says

    I love thse “keep wamr” bags to cuddle up with in the cold winter months. I would love to win this sewing machine to make these bags for Christmas gifts!

  14. Jennifer H. says

    Just saw this contest….it’s so timely because my Montgomery Ward (tells you how old this machine is) sewing machine just died! Love all the projects shared daily including the maxi dress/skirt 🙂

  15. Shannon Gammel says

    I would love the thread, as I do alterations and it’s always good to have a lot of different colors.Thanks.

  16. Marcella Land says

    I absolutely love this blog. So much useful info. Today’s maxis are very nice. I sew every day and would love to win either of these wonderful prizes.

  17. Judy Foister says

    I could sure use the Bernina Sewing machine, mine is 1996 and has many many sewing hours on it. It just keeps on sewing like a trooper! I even machine quilt on it and it has the prettiest stitch. Of course I could use some more thread, still have many quilts that I want to make and create!

  18. Kathy Gates says

    I was wondering who won the Bernina? I can’t find where it is posted. Anyone know?

  19. Ileene Fischer says

    I jusrt have a cheap sewing machine and could really use a new one. I am retired and have plenty of time to sew for my great grand son and others. Some times I make throws for the chemo pt, where my best friend had chemo .
