    I hope I am not to late, for I tried to leave a comment early this morning and the site wouldn’t save my comment. Yet the most awesome Christmas gift I could receive would be to have my home remodeled with current appliances and in current trends, with lots of extra rooms for my crafts!!! Rooms for all of my crafts would be heaven!!! If I am so lucky to win these shears, I promise not to let my husband near them!!! Darby darbyscloset at yahoo dt com

    Since I already have the sewing machine I wanted and plenty of fabric to play with, my dream gift would be an Asus I7 quad-core laptop with a top of the line graphics card. sigh

    A month of suspended time; I could sew to my heart’s content while my family slept… they were happy, nourished, well cared for… time would stand still and I could sew!

    Some dressmaking shears would be lovely as I don’t have a pair of my own but I share my mother’s. It would be so nice if I could cut fabric without having to ask to use the shears. Failing that, somewhere other than the floor to cut my fabric would help my knees out a lot. :)

    My dream gift, hmmm—I have so much as it is. I’d like to book a cruise with my husband, all our kids and grandkids—for two weeks would be fabulous! The grandkids could dress up for dinner, they could stay in the kid care part of the ship doing arts and crafts, exercising, swimming, playing while their parents took an excursion. And we could do some sight-seeing. Nice thoughts, but hard to translate into reality! Alternate dream gift: Burda Style subscription.

    My dream gift would be a self-cleaning house, so I could craft without the guilt! And cutting with a new pair of gingher scissors would be so awesome.

    Perfect gift lets see: trip to nyc then to paris to the couture fashion houses and meet the designers and learn techniques. More resonable gift a finished sewing room with a cotton candy maker.

    Well, I have so many dream gifts, but first, I dream of a serger ! I’ve bought a wonderful sewing-embroidery machine last year, but now my bank account is empty… So I’ve written to Santa Claus for a serger !!!

    I would like classes on my new sewing machine. I had my old one for 20 years and I knew it inside and out. This one is marvelous but a bit of a mystery.

    My dream gift would be a plane ticket to go back to my home country… Or if i could dream more, I’d like to have Doraemon’s “Anywhere Door” (a door that opens up to any place the user wishes). Then I can see my family and childhood friends anytime I want in a second ;)

    By the way, this are a beautiful pair of shears… love it!|

    I’m hoping for a large free-standing easel. Of course, I’d also love a dress mannequin or a serger. :-)
