    The dress form is something I’ve always wanted but was never able to afford it. This would be great to win. I visit this site often and have learned so much that have helped me with my sewing craft. Thank you. junelegs

    I love the look of the Sew Liberated book, very groovy, but of course, to have a serger would be exciting indeed, I have been sewing in jersey for some 30 years and have wanted a serger for the neat topstitching for as long! and happy holidays!

    I have to agree – the serger was the top wish. That said, I’d be happy to win something other than a watermelon eating contest for once. :-)

    The sewing machine : I just got a serger for christmas, and now my old sewing machine looks even older! I would have loved the japanese pattern books also.

    The Serger I think, but also a year’s subsrciption to Burda Magazine or any other sewing and handicrafts book was the most wanted prize.
