  1. So the chances are 1 in 5 huh? The person who TRULY inspires or inspired me to sew was my 4-H sewing leader. She taught me SO much, I wouldn't be able to sew in a straight line without her! AMAZING woman (wish I could move her to Utah and have her live in my basement).

    I already follow your blog too, if I win I just have to get over my fear of zippers and make something! :-)

    Miss you Nancy!

  2. My mom used to sew everything for herself and us kids. I remember the cool old sewing machine humming away and the material everywhere. Always made me want to try it myself. So with her help I have tried different things and had so much fun. Thanks for the chance and I think you will have 6 people who read your blog now!!!!

  6. Goodness, so much inspires me. What gt me interesting in sewing was having a little girl who is only five but so tall she's going to be out of little girl clothes really soon, and I don't want her dressing like a teen as a first-grader! But my mom first inspired me -- she's a gifted sewer and sewed a ton of stuff for me as a kid, and now all these ammmaazzzzinng sewing blogs!

  10. This is GREAT Nance! I love that you are doing this to help get people sewing!
    Ok well this might be cheesy, but I remember talking to YOU on my couch in AF and saying how I wanted to learn to sew because I hadn't been taught as a girl. And I have ALWAYS had the creative bug inside of me just trying to put words to music. SO I would have to say YOU were my first inspiration and then looking at all the beautiful things that you have created, I just think you are marvelous! So I bought a sewing machine 2 1/2 years ago and am taking sewing lessons and I learn something new everyday. :)Isn't just fun to feel a great sense of accomplishment when you have finished a project? Love you!

  19. Oooooh, really liking this giveaway! My inspiration now is my little girl. But it really started with my Mom. My favorites things as I grew up were the dresses, skirts, and dolls she made for me. She didn't have a sewing machine so they were really a labor of love. So now getting to create for my little girl makes me so happy.

  48. I'm pretty much flying solo on the crafting thing. Taught myself to knit, taught myself to quilt, my mother taught me basic crochet but didn't know more than back & forth single & double crochet, so I figured out the rest of it by myself. So I guess I inspire me? Thanks for the great giveaway; please count me in.

  49. My greatest sewing inspiration is probably LiEr from ikatbag (ikatbag.com) - she makes fabulous stuff! And my grandma got me started sewing when she gave me a sewing box for my (maybe 8th?) birthday.

  55. I'm right there with you - I think I have... about 7 followers to my blog.

    My inspiration for sewing - I think my grandma who died when I was 12... we were really close and I just remember that the family decided that I should get her sewing box and how much that meant to me. My aunt sewed us all quilts when I was young, and has since tried about every craft known to man.... Mostly I love to search flickr and google image search for ideas. And I loove all sorts of blogs!

    Speaking of my mom, she's the first one I think of when I think of what inspires my crafting, because she's the one who got me set up in the first place. She provided ready materials for all sorts of projects. And while she taught me basics, something I learned from her is how to figure things out yourself.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  139. From 5 readers to 150 comments? Great job! My crafting inspiration is my grandma; she taught me to sew, cook, clean--everything essential!

  140. People like you inspire me. You said you only have 5 regular followers, but now you will have more. It's these giveaways I love because I get to see bloggers I would never see otherwise, and I get inspiration from all of the new ones I start following. Like yours!

  142. I am inspired by my children - that's who I started knitting and sewing for. I love the delight on my toddler's face when he sees me making something for him, and it's great that he's old enough now to be involved in the decisions and design of things (he recently chose a hat pattern and the yarn for it). knit1purljill (at) gmail (dot) com

  144. Usually my kids inspire my sewing because I want to make something for them. Someday I may get around to making things for myself. We shall see! Thanks for the opportunity!

  146. My next door neighbor growing up is an awesome seamstress. She did sewing classes one summer. I wish I had taken them more seriously. She's very inspiring.

  152. I saw a picture of a Denyse Schmidt quilt. I loved it. I had to have it. But the only way I was going to get it was to make it myself. I made it and haven't stopped quilting since. I love her work!

  154. My friend Robyn inspires me in my crafty endeavors. Whenever I see a neat tutorial, I always post it as a comment on her facebook page. :)

  155. I am constantly inspired by amazing crafters. My grandmother sewed amazing things until a few years ago, when her hands could no longer keep up with her mind. My friends serve as my inspiration, and grandma as my muse.

  156. My (deceased) grandmother is my nearest quilting relation and all of her quilts, passed down to my mother, inspire me. I like trying modern takes on the traditional designs. Lovely fabrics, thanks for sharing!

  161. I can't say that any one thing inspries me, sometimes it's somkething I've seen, sometimes it's hearing someone describe something they're working on and I try to think how I can make it "better", and sometimes I just need something so I figure out how to make it.

  166. I'm inspired by my kids, as I love to put the cutest clothes I can find on them. They also have these skinny banana body types, so sewing makes a lot more sense than buying RTW!

  172. I don't have anyone 'with skin' on that inspires me, but all my cyber friends sure do! I see color combos I would think about; patterns that are great and tutes to help with tricky situations. I love the net! I do have a quilt my grandmother made hanging in the kitchen...if there was a fire THAT is the first thing I'd run to save! Not the pictures or money or anything else....just that quilt...freeindeed at myfairpoint dot net
