    Defo the new sewing machine, mine is barely holding itself together. Thankfully, my mother upgraded hers and passed onto me her old one. Which actually sews. :)

    I would have loved the dress form (mines as old as my mam, shes looking at me with eyebrows raised saying i,m cheeky haha) but theses books would be great too, seen as though all my family know how much i like sewing and they all bought me soap sets. Must be only me in the family with a little imagination. Awww well its the thought that counts. Plus I already buy sew magazine, it would be nice to see what other magazines have to offer.

    I would probably say the iron- I like mine, but as someone who uses nicer ones at school, it really is a bummer to go home and not have a nice one!

    A week ago I would have said a sewing machine. But as I got one for Christmas, I would now choose any of the sewing books. I love books but I still have none about sewing…

    The Threads DVD’s would have been a lovely giveaway gift to have won, but the subscription to Burda Style and the dress form were wonderful, too.

    I’ve been lusting after the Boutique Bags book by since I saw it on Amazon a while ago. Looks so beautiful! So I’m going to go with this one (although I wouldn’t have quibbled over the serger either!!)

    I think the serger, the sewing machine and the mannequin were top of my list, but I’d have been happy with anything. I’ve never won anything before. :-)

    Being a complete book-a-holic this is the one for me. I have just pulled a load of fabric from my stash to make bags so i really really want the bag book. I love books almost as much as I love the fabric in my stash!!!!

    Oh, so many of them were delicious! A sewing machine, definitely, with the thread a close second and the dressform, though that Modcloth gift certificate was soooo tempting, LOL! It’s really hard to pick just one. You had great prizes.

    I’d really really like the book by Yuka Koshizen Carry Me: 20 Boutique Bags to Sew to start with. I have my fingers crossed. It’d be a good place to start some projects after the exams that greet me every year.
