    A new machine would be wonderful. My machine just developed a glitch and won’t go in reverse.

    I’m a plus size petite and have worked for years trying to find things that are stylish and professional at the same time being modern and up to date. I love designing – but like everyone else do not have enough time.

    I’m a big fan of Mixtlii’s gown. I wish life was more formal and modest like the good ol’ days!

    Many wonderful entries in the competition. Looking at them all has inspired me. As soon as I finish Christmas gifts I plan to create something for myself. I have been leaning toward Bernina’s when looking for a new machine. Winning one would be even better. I love the website and share the info. with others on a regular basis.

    There are several really good entries in this contest! But I think it’s important to remember when you vote that the original rules asked contestants to show very clearly how they would style the look, and there are a number of entries that don’t meet that requirement.
