Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Hurrah! Giveaway Day! I love Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway so much, it’s one of the best inventions ever. Things have been quite real-life-ish around the Button house lately, so this bit of cheerful fun is exactly what we need! Thank you, Sew Mama Sew, for hosting this lovely blogging tradition – we love you!

Ok, so you want to know what the loots is, right?! Yeah, I don’t blame you, that’s what it’s all about! This year, Little Dorrit & Co. decided to try and spread the stitchy love and maybe make a new embroiderer out of one of you – or just treat an existing stitcher to some shiny new toys. We’ve put together a whole embroidery kit for one lucky winner:

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day Prizes!

We’ve got: embroidery scissors from the Victoria & Albert Museum, a 5″ embroidery hoop, DMC embroidery floss, Clover embroidery needles and a little needle-book – stitched and sewn by my own self!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day Prizes!

I’ve decorated it with a little clump of flowers from our logo, and it’s got four wee felt pages to store your needles away safely.

Also included in our Giveaway Day embroidery kit is a copy of our Shakespeare’s Flowers embroidery pattern – five smaller flower patterns that are perfect for any stitchy skill level. The thread above is a bundle of all the colors you’ll need to complete the entire set of Shakepeare’s Flowers – just add fabric and you’ll be stitching away in no time!

How to enter: This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere! Entries will close on December 13 at 5 p.m. PST (which is the middle of the night here in the UK, late Friday night) and one winner will be chosen randomly by the end of Sunday, December 15th.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this very post and answer me this: if money / time / space were no object, what craft or project would you most like to try? I love getting to hear a little about you guys!

Update: Entries are now closed! I’ll announce a winner by the end of Sunday, so make sure you come back and find out if it was you – see you tomorrow!

    All of my craft dreams are so down-to-earth really :) I wish I could sew more, I want to learn to sew beautiful clothes for myself and want to spend more time designing and creating decor for my (and maybe not only my) home. That’s all I want at the moment craft-wise.

    Wow, if money and time were no object . . . I’d do SO many things! One of them would be an old-time silk and velvet crazy quilt, with tons of embroidery between the little pieces.

  3. Tammy
    December 9, 2013 at 14:49 (4 years ago)

    I would love to do a crazy quilt. I would also love to learn how to dye fabrics myself. And I would love one of those huge embroidery frames for quilting quilts. I would also love a outside studio wood workshop full of tools and learn how to make things like chairs and tables and shelves and cabinets to make my own sewing studio furniture. conn_and_vans_momatyahoodotcom

    Oh, I know the answer to that one just too good! I would sew (and construct ^^) a dress with beetle wings. I already use them to make jewelery (inspired by Ellen Terrys dress from 1888) and it takes a lot of time to prepare them (at least for me because they are delivered fixed in Xylol and I am removing this by alcohol dilutions series, yes, working in the lab!)… and they are also not too cheap. Not if you need hundreds to thousands of them. Not to speak of preparing and drilling and sewing every single one by hand…

    But oh…. would this be gorgeous! Sparkling in all shades of green and blue and violett!

    Dreaming of this for a long time!

  5. LisaAnn
    December 9, 2013 at 15:12 (4 years ago)

    Well, I’d make more quilts and do more embroidery! I love them both!

  6. Melissa
    December 9, 2013 at 15:17 (4 years ago)

    Love the Shakespeare Flowers patterns. Super cute!

    I think I’d like to buy a loom and try to weave something large, like a rug. Of course, I’d need a bigger house as well to store my loom. :)

  7. Kim
    December 9, 2013 at 15:19 (4 years ago)

    I would love to have a shop to share and teach sewing, embroidery, knitting and crochet. I have always loved the idea of passing “Heirlooms” down and keeping these art forms alive. Such a sweet giveaway, thank you for the chance to win and Have a Merry Christmas!!

  8. Sara
    December 9, 2013 at 15:37 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to have the space, money and time to be able to have a quilting frame and a long arm quilting machine. I like making quilt tops, but struggle to do anything more than straight line quilting on them.

  9. jeanine
    December 9, 2013 at 15:39 (4 years ago)

    if I had all the money and time and space in the world – I’d LOVE to get into screen printing!

    • jonquil
      December 9, 2013 at 16:03 (4 years ago)

      If the stars were aligned correctly, I would re-start weaving & dying. A gorgeous floor loom, room to dye fibers safely, & classes (only had the one beginner’s class, but I feel in love!)!

  10. Melani
    December 9, 2013 at 16:00 (4 years ago)

    I’d sew all my clothes … and use nice fabrics …

    THank you for the chance …

    PS: Your pics are the most beautiful giveaway photos I’ve ever seen …

  11. Rebecca
    December 9, 2013 at 16:16 (4 years ago)

    If money were no object I would get a 3D printer and laser cutter! Or do some serious quilting. There are so many gorgeous fabrics, I just want them all!

  12. Taz
    December 9, 2013 at 16:17 (4 years ago)

    If money and space were no object I’d love to get a long arm machine so I could actually quilt the pile of tops that seem to be multiplying around here!

  13. Terry Truesdale
    December 9, 2013 at 16:21 (4 years ago)

    I would love to smock!!!

  14. Inês
    December 9, 2013 at 16:33 (4 years ago)

    I am very eclectic so I would love to try pretty much everything. However, if I had to reduce my choices I would definitively try weaving and ceramics.

  15. Nicole
    December 9, 2013 at 16:40 (4 years ago)

    If money was no object, I’d buy a serger to sew my own knits.

  16. Monica
    December 9, 2013 at 16:40 (4 years ago)

    If money and time were no object I’d buy a potter’s wheel and kiln and teach myself to make pottery. I’d also like to learn bronze sculpture.

  17. wendy
    December 9, 2013 at 16:59 (4 years ago)

    Well, I’m on a one-woman mission to try every craft and technique there is going – there’s a list on my blog to keep trap. The most expensive are those that involve a kiln, so they’d be on my wish list – lampworking, pottery, enamelling, things like that.

  18. Regena
    December 9, 2013 at 17:00 (4 years ago)

    wow, no restrictions on my creativity……that is a great dream. I would try everything! but a large room, filled with the right tools and room for sewing/crafting buddies would be da bomb! a long arm quilting machine and a free standing embroidery stand or two would be killer.

  19. Judy H
    December 9, 2013 at 17:03 (4 years ago)

    I would love a long arm quilting machine so I could quilt my top quilts more professionally.

  20. lela t.
    December 9, 2013 at 17:06 (4 years ago)

    I would like to make fantastic, funky dolls.

    December 9, 2013 at 17:12 (4 years ago)

    Such a great giveaway. Thank you for the chance to win. I’m newly obsessed with embroidery so this is perfect.
    If $ were no object or space I think I’d like to have a long arm quilting machine!

  22. Lorrie
    December 9, 2013 at 17:17 (4 years ago)

    One new technique for fabric embellishment I would like to try is silk screening. Love the look. Someday, perhaps.

  23. Katrin
    December 9, 2013 at 17:39 (4 years ago)

    I would love to try longarm quilting. Thanks!

    hun, its no brainer,its sewing ,that even if the world would be coming apart ,i did be still hunched over my sewing machine sewing darn crazy stuff.

    • Aurelia Eglantine
      December 9, 2013 at 17:57 (4 years ago)

      Wow! What a wonderful giveaway :) I love the Shakespeare’s Flowers collection, especially the Eglantine Rose! If money were no object, I would love to try goldwork (or silverwork or copperwork – anything with metal threads). I really like the glitter of metallic floss but real metal thread has this really beautiful gleam that is just extraordinary ;)

  25. Elizabeth Lind
    December 9, 2013 at 17:53 (4 years ago)

    I would sew a complete wardrobe for myself!

  26. Julia Glotova
    December 9, 2013 at 17:58 (4 years ago)

    I would probably make some complicated quilts. Thanks for a chance to win! julia(dot)glotova(at)gmail(dot)com

  27. Celtic Thistle Stitches
    December 9, 2013 at 17:59 (4 years ago)

    Would love to try Silver Metal Clay so that would be first on my wish list if money was no object, next up would be a longarm quilting machine, although I think I would be rather intimidated by it so it might end up just gathering dust :)

  28. jan
    December 9, 2013 at 18:21 (4 years ago)

    I did a night school in collagraph printing but couldn’t keep it up as a hobby as I had no space in which to put a press – let alone afford even a small one. I’d also like to have the money and space to get into some silver jewellery making. Maybe with PMC oh it goes without saying if I could master Long arm Quilting then I’d love to fit one of those in somewhere!

  29. Liz
    December 9, 2013 at 18:22 (4 years ago)

    I would love to have a clay studio with throwing wheels and a huge kiln and wonderful rich glazes!

  30. Clare Kennedy
    December 9, 2013 at 18:38 (4 years ago)

    Lovely giveaway – would share it with my nine year old as we’re at about the same level for embroidery! If money and time were no object, I’d have a studio at the end of the garden with a kiln, a huge stack of yarn and space for all the other things I’d like to try.

  31. Lindsey@HappierThanABirdQuilts
    December 9, 2013 at 18:42 (4 years ago)

    I’m pretty happy with quilting – but if money were no issue I’d run out and buy a longarm right now!
    But in high school I did pottery for a couple of year, and loved working on the wheel. I was never that great at it, but I just love using my hands to create something.

    December 9, 2013 at 18:50 (4 years ago)

    I would love to sew more clothes for myself! Jeans would be fun, I think. The yardage it takes to sew something for myself makes it too expensive to do often. I have to stick to projects that require a small amount of fabric or are from upcycled fabrics.

  33. Netta
    December 9, 2013 at 18:52 (4 years ago)

    If money/time/space were no issue I’d want a longarm myself. Actually, I’d want an entire house filled to the attic with fabric and batting. :)

  34. Ariadne
    December 9, 2013 at 19:14 (4 years ago)

    I love cross stitch and scissors and a pinkeep are always needed.I love your giveaway! If I had money I would buy a standing lamp with magnifying glass for my stitching!And I would hire someone to teach me how to crochet!AriadnefromGreece!

    December 9, 2013 at 19:15 (4 years ago)

    Love the giveaway. If money/space and time were no issue i would love to design a whole wardrobe for myself. hoping to win!!

  36. Laura
    December 9, 2013 at 19:26 (4 years ago)

    I’d take up quilting! I sew a lot of little projects, but if time and money and space were no object, I’d definitely start making quilts!

  37. Terry
    December 9, 2013 at 19:28 (4 years ago)

    I’d definitely want to learn how to use a long arm and own one as well.

  38. Chiska
    December 9, 2013 at 19:28 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to make aMariner’s Compass quilt. Thanks so much for the chance!

  42. Melissa Graham
    December 9, 2013 at 19:59 (4 years ago)

    I think I would have to try quilting. I have always wanted to but don’t have the time or space for it just now.

  43. Michelle Fuller
    December 9, 2013 at 20:01 (4 years ago)

    I would like an embroidery machine to try and spice up my baby clothes. I also would like to try and quilt a quilt rather then send it out. And I don’t mean on a sewing machine on one of those long quilting machines, I don’t know what they are called. Thanks.

  44. Ann
    December 9, 2013 at 20:07 (4 years ago)

    I would love to try silk-screening or other techniques to print designs on fabric. In fact I’ve asked for a little carving block kit for Christmas so I can start small. Thanks for offering the chance to win those lovely flowers!

  45. Whitney S
    December 9, 2013 at 20:10 (4 years ago)

    I was going to say that I’ve always loved giant floor looms and the ideas of learning to weave on them.
    Then I saw all the comments about pottery and decided that would absolutely come first.
    But time and money are no object right? I pick both :)

  46. Ashley
    December 9, 2013 at 20:18 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to have more time to sew. A big, beautiful quilt is on my to-do someday list.

  55. Laura D
    December 9, 2013 at 21:58 (4 years ago)

    Money, time and space no object?!?! Well then, I would love to take up pottery! I’ve never done it, but the tactile nature of it I think I would love. And the finished pieces?!? I think I would have so much fun doing it.

  56. Andree Faubert
    December 9, 2013 at 22:01 (4 years ago)

    If time was no object, I would make wonderful embroidered quilts. It hasn’t happened yet, but it will one day!
    Thanks Julie,
    love your blog.

  57. Lady J
    December 9, 2013 at 22:24 (4 years ago)

    I would love to try painting. I have always wanted to, but it isn’t a very child friendly craft.

  58. anne
    December 9, 2013 at 22:26 (4 years ago)

    Honestly? Aside from stitching all freaking day, I think I’d really love to try something like pottery. I did it in high school and really enjoyed it, but we only did it a wee bit and I’d love to really give it a serious go. Also, lace making. I haven’t the guts to try it now. And, more photography. And, maybe print making … so, really, ALL THE THINGS! :)

  59. Saira

    I rearranged a bedroom and bought a long arm this summer. So I’m pretty happy. But I would love to go to a retreat about long arm quilting. Plus, I want to do some of that spectacular paper piecing, but I’m need a retreat for that too. Thanks.

    SOmething involving weaving I think. Aside from quilting ;)

  84. Kayla
    December 10, 2013 at 02:12 (4 years ago)

    I’d get a long arm I believe. Or actually I’d be happy with just my regular machine – I just want more time to sew!! Thanks so much for the chance – those patterns are so sweet!

  85. Judith
    December 10, 2013 at 02:55 (4 years ago)

    I would try glass blowing (does that count as a craft?) My son’s middle school had a glass blowing program and he took the class and really enjoyed it.

    Long armed quilting would be cool to try too.

  98. cindy
    December 10, 2013 at 04:44 (4 years ago)

    Such a sweet give away! Love that little needlebook.

    If money were no object I would definitely delve into the long arm world and get me a machine….oh and the out building to put it in!

    Ooh, that’s a fun proposition! I’d love to learn how to make or blow (I think that’s the correct term?) glass art. Or to learn to be a jeweller with semi precious stones, that would be pretty fantastic too! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.- so much embroidery goodness!

    December 10, 2013 at 10:52 (4 years ago)

    Firstly a fabulous giveaway and seeing that I am new to embroidery I will just love to put all these gorgeous tool to work. Now for the question, for me there are so many things that I want to do, but first off will have to do textile printing, but to use designs inspired by embroidery art, now that sounds like fun! Thanks for hosting this fab giveaway, I have everything crossed xoxo

  110. Amanda K

    Definitely more quilting!

  111. Bekk S
    December 10, 2013 at 11:39 (4 years ago)

    wow, what a question. I think the answer is Everything! I’d like to get back into jewellery making, creating silver a gold pieces from scratch again would be great. at the moment i sew bags and purses and animals. i like cake decorating, embroidery, felting, making hats. if only we could all have the space we wanted!

  112. Kelli
    December 10, 2013 at 13:45 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to try silk screening as well as spinning my own yarn. I have no real knowledge of either and so both are intriguing to me as I think they’d be expensive to get into especially since I don’t know if I’d even enjoy it. :) But, I LOVE quilting and wish I had more time at my machine. So many ideas, so little time!

  113. Lauri
    December 10, 2013 at 14:19 (4 years ago)

    I just came across your blog from &Stitches, and can’t wait to come back for a longer visit (already about 30 minutes past “you’ve got to get up and do something !”)

    I’d love to sew daygowns for babies – and embroider on them. But that ‘s just for starters: I need to get beyond “knit one, purl one,” plunge into various types of whitework, weave some more…..

    What a fantastic giveaway! Thanks to you and SewMamaSew for a chance to win.

    I’ll be back.

    December 10, 2013 at 14:32 (4 years ago)

    Hmmm…all of the possible crafts in the whole world and then invent some too? I don’t think I would stop. But if I really must choose I am getting quite interested in restoring old furniture in interesting ways and doing decoupage but so limited on space and it’s really not a cheap way to learn by making mistakes. Thanks!

  116. Paula

    If money and time were no object I would certainly make more quilts. Thank you for this lovely giveaway; I especially love the embroidery scissors!

    I’m not sure I’d learn another craft (have you seen my to do list?!) but I would love to increase my quilting and dressmaking skills and find more time for embroidery which is something I’ve not done for a long time! Thanks for a lovely giveaway x

    Thanks! Have a nice week!

  126. Sara A.

    I think I’d get one of those quilt frames or a larger throated machine and go to town making large bed size quilts.

  127. Karrie Smith
    December 10, 2013 at 15:54 (4 years ago)

  133. Veronica
    December 10, 2013 at 17:22 (4 years ago)

    If I had all the money and space in the world, I’d buy a long armer so I could quilt all my own quilts. I’d get a lot more done that way.

  134. Julia C K
    December 10, 2013 at 17:29 (4 years ago)

    Wow, I don’t know where I’d start. I’d like to try paper piecing a quilt, but I also have a lot of projects waiting to be started – embroidered pillows, ornaments, knitted sweaters. I just need time.

  135. Serena
    December 10, 2013 at 17:31 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to learn to weave. I love spinning, and now I think weaving with my handspun would be fun. (I went to the V&A in April and loved it, but was so jetlagged I didn’t get to spend enough time there!)

  136. Madeline T.
    December 10, 2013 at 17:40 (4 years ago)

  138. Sarah
    December 10, 2013 at 17:52 (4 years ago)

    I would love a room to quilt in with a really good machine with quilting table on it and make myself a king size quilt (echino for the winter and liberty lawn for the summer)

  139. Ann
    December 10, 2013 at 18:07 (4 years ago)

    I think I would like to have a big loom and try weaving!

  140. Jennifer
    December 10, 2013 at 18:15 (4 years ago)

    I’d love to spin and weave. On the slightly more likely side of things, I’d like to make a really big quilt–I’ve only made baby/toddler sized ones so far. And I want to learn to stipple!

  141. Kelsey @ Everyday Fray
    December 10, 2013 at 18:24 (4 years ago)

    Oh i love this question! I would really love to try my hand at working a loom but I really just don’t have the space or time to add another craft to my life. Someday maybe :) Also that needle book you make is seriously gorgeous! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win! *fingers and toes crossed*

  142. Kim

  144. Toni Anne
    December 10, 2013 at 18:37 (4 years ago)

    I’d still be quilting but in a much bigger room with better storage, lighting and a better view.

  145. Susan
    December 10, 2013 at 18:42 (4 years ago)

    I would try woodworking, yarn spinning or weaving.

  146. Stephanie

    I would love to really start hand quilting. If I had all the time and money in the world!

  147. Ali M
    December 10, 2013 at 19:17 (4 years ago)

    Did anybody not say a long arm? I’ll assume everybody said it, cause what else takes up a whole room and costs as much as a car? :) Thank you for the giveaway, I love embroidery so much, and not only because it hardly takes up any room!

  148. Carolyn
    December 10, 2013 at 19:30 (4 years ago)

    I sew, I craft, I am a goldsmith but I wouldn’t mind trying glass blowing.
    Thank you for the chance :)

  149. Michele T

  150. Stacy Alfano

  151. Elizabeth McDonald (catskill quilter)
    December 10, 2013 at 20:49 (4 years ago)

    I have always wanted to learn how to make stained glass windows! It is similar to making quilts, in that you cut materials into pieces and then put it back together in a different pattern.

  152. Brenda Hulsey
    December 10, 2013 at 21:00 (4 years ago)

    I would really like to try woodworking! I have always wanted to try it but the expense of the tools kept me from trying it.

  153. Kirsten
    December 10, 2013 at 21:04 (4 years ago)

    I were to think BIG, I would have to say I’d love to try my hand at building a cobb house…a little earth cottage in my backyard just for me. There I would sew and write to my heart’s content, surrounded by the fresh earthy smell of dried mud.

  154. Marywoodworking
    December 10, 2013 at 21:08 (4 years ago)

    Oh goodness! I’d do lots more sewing, knitting, and embroidery, and I’d also love to try woodworking. And papermaking. And bookbinding!

  155. Andrea B
    December 10, 2013 at 21:31 (4 years ago)

    December 10, 2013 at 23:16 (4 years ago)

    If I had the money and the time and the space, I’d love to have my own long arm quilting machine. Or failing that, just having the money to send all my quilt tops out to be quilted for me – either would be bliss :)

  162. Lynne Tilley
    December 10, 2013 at 23:55 (4 years ago)

    Well, if money were no object, I would definitely like to try long-arm quilting. Now, that’ not to say I would be any good at it, because all I have is a small machine that I can barely do a little FMQ on; but this is fantasy, right? So that would be it.

  163. Leigh Anne
    December 11, 2013 at 00:33 (4 years ago)

    Well, it’s not really a craft but it’s definitely a project. I would love to buy an old house and completely renovate it!

  164. Clare

  165. Julie

    Pottery. And long arm quilting.

  167. Heather M
    December 11, 2013 at 01:57 (4 years ago)

    I think it would have to be long arming. I’ve always wanted to long arm. I can just imagine the quilts that would fly out of my craft room with one of those. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  168. Diana @ Red Delicious Life
    December 11, 2013 at 02:02 (4 years ago)

    I’d been an avid knitter for years and only just started quilting in the last year so that’s my biggest passion right now. I can dream big if money weren’t an issue – oh the sewing studio I’d have! I love the little embroidered needle book! It’s adorable! I don’t do a lot of hand sewing but I do embroider all of my quilt labels so I’d love a chance to win this.

  169. Kristin
    December 11, 2013 at 02:21 (4 years ago)

    I would do the same crafts I think, but if money weren’t an issue I would make a lot nicer things! And probably a lot more of them ;)

  170. Jodi R
    December 11, 2013 at 02:43 (4 years ago)

    Long Arm Machine quilting, I have neither the space for the machine, the money for the machine or the time to learn at this point in my life but one day :)

  171. Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs
    December 11, 2013 at 03:18 (4 years ago)

    Not so much “try” as “buy” – if money and time were no object, I’d run right out and get a longarm machine and fill my days with thread : ) LOVE that needle book – beautiful!

  172. Lora W.
    December 11, 2013 at 03:24 (4 years ago)

    I would buy a top of the line sewing machine and a mack daddy serger.

  173. Ramona M.
    December 11, 2013 at 03:36 (4 years ago)

    Wow! I would love to have a long arm quilter so it would be easier to quilt. I’d also like all the beautiful fabric and to be able to teach sewing to kids.

  174. Kathy Davis
    December 11, 2013 at 04:17 (4 years ago)

    I would love to have a weaving loom. Not just a little lap loom but a big one in order to make rugs. I see the rugs at craft fairs all the time and start to drool! Only if…. Thanks, Kathy

    I would love to learn to throw some pots. I always wanted to take that lump of clay,throw it on that spinning plate and shape it with my hands. It looks SO amazing.

  177. Mandi
    December 11, 2013 at 04:29 (4 years ago)

    I’d get a new sewing machine (mine is from 1982) and just sew away!

  178. Lyn
    December 11, 2013 at 04:32 (4 years ago)

    I would have a cottage garden in my front yard, and a kitchen garden and vegetable patch in my back yard, a few fruit trees, and lots of flowers. (And the yard space to have all this!)

  179. Anita
    December 11, 2013 at 04:33 (4 years ago)

    If money were no object I would absolutely buy myself a long arm machine. Naturally I would have a stunningly beautiful studio to set it up in. Perhaps a lodge on the shore of a lake. Anyway, I haven’t tried long arm quilting yet so that would be my choice. I do enjoy needle point and cross stitch when I get a chance so your prize would be used by me if I were to win. Thank you!

  187. DeborahGun

  191. Anne J
    December 11, 2013 at 11:51 (4 years ago)

    I would love to get back to weaving. I did it for a few years while I was still living at my parent’s house and I miss it. It’s wonderfully relaxing and a wonderful opportunity for creativity. Just starting to teach myself embroidery and am loving it! What a great gift you are giving away!

  192. Dana Z

    If all those were no object, then I would love to have a longarm…now that would really be something! ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway! I think I would gift this to my best friend should I win :)

  200. Sherry`
    December 11, 2013 at 14:34 (4 years ago)

    If money and time were no object I would create something combining piecing and embroidery. I would use fine linen for the embroidery and rich colored fabrics for the piecing. I would learn all of the new stitches I have not tried. It would be a crazy quilt. I have already prepared pictures on fabric of each of my children when they were about l year old, they would be included.

  201. Sabina
    December 11, 2013 at 14:39 (4 years ago)

    I would love a long arm quilting machine, set up in a custom design studio. I would also like to travel to learn sashiko and shibori (Japan), kantha (India), and take courses at the Royal School of Needlework(UK).

  202. Leah
    December 11, 2013 at 14:54 (4 years ago)

    I would keep on doing what I am doing, making quilts and bags from time to time. I would just like to do it in a tropical location. A sewing room with a view of clear blue water would be ideal. :)

  203. Soley
    December 11, 2013 at 14:59 (4 years ago)

    If money and space were no object I would make a HUGE sewing table with space for my machine and my serger and the entire surface would be a giant self healing cutting mat. I would immediately delve into a king size quilt.

  204. SARA
    December 11, 2013 at 15:02 (4 years ago)

    I am really starting to get into embroidery.. I want to make a mobile out of an embroidered embroidery hoop for my best friend’s new, sweet baby!

  205. Christina Watson

    I love everything from sewing and quilting to scrapbooking and needlework. I would really like to make an entire set of dishes. Something to use for special occasions. I have done several pieces at a local shop, but an entire set would be wonderful.

    December 11, 2013 at 16:09 (4 years ago)

    I’d invest in a fancy long arm and give free motion quilting with a big fancy machine! And lots of fabric. Lots and lots!

    But honestly, I’m pretty fortunate that I feel like I am doing exactly what I want, craft wise, right now. The only thing I …really… Want is time to sew!

    What a great question to ponder!!

    If money were no object, I need lots of fabrics :)

  209. Lisa
    December 11, 2013 at 16:53 (4 years ago)

    Oh, I would do so many things – I would quit my job to work on crafting full time. I’d learn how to knit lace and silk-screen my own fabrics and make beautiful dresses. I would also want to learn to quilt, and upholster, so I could make everything in my home look awesome!

    If money, time, and space were no object, I would love to learn woodworking. I think that it would be awesome to make some furniture that would last generations.

  213. Sara
    December 11, 2013 at 17:48 (4 years ago)

    I have tried almost all crafts that I would want to. From basket making to mosaics, I was a therapeutic recreation major the first time through school. The one thing I haven’t gotten the hang of is knitting. I need more quiet time for that! Thanks for the chance!

  214. Gloria

  217. Natalie

  219. Mara
    December 11, 2013 at 19:09 (4 years ago)

    I would LOVE to have a glass blowing studio! My first love was working with glass, but since that is harder to ship (or should I say more likely to break) I have gone with sewing and get my color therapy from fabrics instead of glass.

  220. SS
    December 11, 2013 at 19:14 (4 years ago)

    If I had more time and money, I think I’d like to take some classes in knitting, quilting, and embroidery. My grandmother just gave me a couple of embroidery hoops and I’ve never really done any embroidery before – I was thinking I might try to monogram a couple of handkerchiefs.

  221. Littlegreydog
    December 11, 2013 at 19:41 (4 years ago)

  230. Beth B.
    December 11, 2013 at 23:22 (4 years ago)

    Every time I think I’ll buy some embroidery supplies, I spend the money on fabric :P So my answer is embroidery!

  231. Susan Ikin
    December 11, 2013 at 23:24 (4 years ago)

    If time and money were no problem, I would travel the world and learn local crafts, or incorporate the locality into whatever I was making.

  234. Samantha W

  235. DarnHeather

  237. Penny Lindlau
    December 12, 2013 at 02:27 (4 years ago)

    It’s a toss up between a spinning wheel and a heddle loom. Both crafts I love to watch and would love to try but kind of expensive for something I might be horrible at!

  238. elflyn
    December 12, 2013 at 02:33 (4 years ago)

    I would do screen printing, no question!

  239. Denise Russell

    I would be huge into masonry if I had the space, money (and upper body strength). I fixed our cement step this past summer and really loved working with all that stone and gravel.

  254. Janice
    December 12, 2013 at 15:27 (4 years ago)

    I have always wanted to try stained glass windows.

  255. Michelle
    December 12, 2013 at 15:27 (4 years ago)

    Honestly I really want to try a double wedding ring quilt, or a winding ways.. It seems like they both would take SO MUCH TIME and that would drive me nuts! I also dream of sewing on all that yummy expensive fabric like the $42 a yard voile and silk and all that unattainably expensive soft stuff!

  256. Kristel
    December 12, 2013 at 15:58 (4 years ago)

    If money were no object… probably knitting. I tried crochet for a while, but never could grasp the differences between types of yarns and sizes of needles/hooks and gauge and all of that… it just confused me. And then I felt like it was too expensive anyway – quilting is my expensive hobby and I didn’t think I could really afford to have two of them!

  257. Beth T.
    December 12, 2013 at 16:48 (4 years ago)

    If money were no object and I had unlimited time and energy I would work on both a bed-sized wool appliqué quilt and on Bonnie Keller’s fabulous EIEIO farm yard quilt.

    What a great question!!! If there were no limits I have two answers, one would be to go to BraveGirls Camp and the other would be to take up woodworking. I loved it in junior highschool and have never done it since!

    Thanks for the chance for the great embroidery supplies. I am trying to learn to stitch and would be over the moon to win this!

    I love screen-printing, so I would love to have the space to have a printmaking studio. Instead, my work is very small-scale, and I don’t do it enough because I have to haul it all out and make room to work. Thanks for the chance to win!

  275. Jennifer
    December 13, 2013 at 01:59 (4 years ago)

  277. Heather in CA

    Ok, had to look around at other comments for ideas, but glass blowing would be SO amazing to try!

  278. bonnie
    December 13, 2013 at 04:41 (4 years ago)

    If money were no object I would have a addition built on my house just for my quilting. I would have the top of the line longarm, a serger, embroidery machine, a sewing machine, all the dies that Accuquilt carries, a computer for the design software as huge fabric closet… and then I would open my room to local girls wanting to learn to sew and quilt..

  279. Sherri S.
    December 13, 2013 at 04:43 (4 years ago)

    Weaving, for sure. I barely have room to set up my sewing machine on the dining room table, though, so I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon! Thanks for the chance to win!

  280. kim stewart
    December 13, 2013 at 04:57 (4 years ago)

    Oh man – how long have you got? I have a list a mile long of all the crafts I want to try – but top of my list for next year is bookbinding, lacemaking and lino cutting/printing on fabric and paper. But if money was no object, I would buy a long arm quilt machine, get into ceramics, jewelry making, photography, bronze casting, basket making….

  289. Niina
    December 13, 2013 at 12:54 (4 years ago)

  290. Michelle
    December 13, 2013 at 13:59 (4 years ago)

  291. Taryn

    I’d probably try knitting. A lot of yarns that I love are way out of my price range!

  292. Lorena
    December 13, 2013 at 15:17 (4 years ago)

    If money and time were no object, I’d like to do many things…. But the most it’s a place where share craft and coffee with friends, you know learn from each other. And of course make more bags and embroideries ;)

    I would love to have a room with a huge table on so that I can spread my quilts out and not have to rearrange the whole house to do so.

    I would also need more space for the new craft books I’m always purchasing and yet more space for all the other crafts that I do and that I want to do!

  296. Thyssly
