  1. This is a very nice prize! I would love to learn to make it as well as a tshirt quilt from my daughter’s old softball jerseys.

  2. My summer project is just that – learning how to make a bag out of my newest favorite fabric (okay so that can change on a daily basis)! Would love to win.

  3. I have got to make this Florida Bag with some beautiful bright fabric for the summer!Love the design templates!!

    WooHoo! I love that kit. Hopeful! Nancy Z is a genius!!

  5. It would be so cool to win this prize. I love experimenting with new tools, supplies and techniques. I have some beautiful batiks that would make an amazing all season tote. In fact I would make one for all my friends!

  6. Nice give away!
    This summer is devoted to my UFOs.

    Too many good things out there to try!

      Hi Sues, We have been trying to email you!! You have won the giveaway prize! Please email us your address at so we can get it sent out to you ASAP! If you do not respond by Monday June 6th, we will have to pick another winner.

  9. I would love to learn Shibori dyeing, and then use the fabric on a smallish wall quilt for my entry way.

  10. I don’t have a specific project in mind; however, I would like to learn the finer points of the finishing touches – I want a more professional look – there are some seriously talented people out there, I want to be one of them!

  11. I’d love to learn to make the vintage cards

  12. I would love to make a purse for myself. Thanks for a chance to win!

  13. My sister and I joined a block of the month at a local quilt store. We were learning how to quilt together. She finished her blocks but unfortunately was diagnosed with cancer and has since passed away. I did not know what to do with her blocks so I took them, added more blocks and a center panel to make a quilt for my other sister who does not sew. This summer I hope to finish it and surprise her with the quilt. Shhhhh don’t tell her. It would be fun to have a new project to work on. Hopefully I would be able to make the bag. Interesting my sisters name was Nancy too. Thanks.

  14. I’d love to make some holiday table runners using embroider and quilting. Very eager to try making a purse or tote bags with embroidered panels.

  15. I would love to win!! Although I live in Canada, I do have a cousin willing to accept any packages for me and I will go over to the States and pick them up. I have done this for 4 years now and never had any trouble with Ebay or PayPal. I would love the chance to win any wonderful prize from your site. I would love to learn more about finishing touches to make any project more professional looking. I don’t feel it is fair that you want everyone to buy your designs but you don’t ship to Canada!! Here’s to hoping for a win for Canada!!!

  16. Have made purses for my daughter and others but never for myself! I need to make one for me. I love Nancy Zieman’s templates:) I would like to use my embroidery machine to embelish it. I am also going to attempt to make a clergy stole for my niece’s wedding. Never made one and don’t have a pattern. Shouldn’t be too hard.

    This is perfect timing, I’ve been looking at bag patterns to try my first one. 🙂

  18. My plan is actually to make my own handbag from the inside out, hard ware included! I want to make one to show case my punchneedle and crazy quilt work. The other project for this summer is make myself some clothes and embellish with embroidery.
    Hope you have a great day!

  19. I would love to make some skirts. I know that sounds simple as can be – but I’ve put it off for years (in favor of sewing for art). I’m really tall and would like to make skirts long enough for me – and make some for my daughter.
