I would love to win this book to advance more on my sewing. I would love to also teach my little girl to sew also. This book looks like a good one to have in the sewing room. I’m not a beginner but I’m not advance either. I love sewing doll clothes,they are fun to do. I’d like to learn how to work on the not so easy fabric.Make clothes like we wear for the dolls.

I have been learning to sew for several reasons;
1. I have a little girl who loves to dress up her doll, her self, and her mom.
2. I have a Dad who was hospitalized and wanted “cozy” ponchos to keep the chill off-he has now asked me to start a charitable organization to create adaptive clothing for seniors in nursing care. AND
3. I am a very curvaceous woman who’s measurements land in 3 different clothing sizes!

Although I have made some great strides in my understanding of sewing basics, there are still several things I struggle with that have kept me from going public with my creations. :-( I would like to know if this book is being offered as an e-book so I can load it on my iPad. I am hoping it could help further me toward my sewing goals. Thx! Angell

Since I teach sewing to children, this would be an awesome book to add to my library. Little girls love making clothes for their dolls almost as much as I do. I think this book would give me lots more ideas for projects for my classes.

It is truly amazing how we can take a beautifully designed fabric and a designed pattern and turn it into a work of art just by patience and perserverance. I am in Awe by all the amazing patterns that are out there for 18" American girl dolls, Ellowyne dolls, Magic Attic etc. It is truly breathtaking to see our little vinyl friends be transported into another time period by our own hands and machines and fabrics. I wish I had this when I was a little girl. I had the mind set but no one to teach me. I am truly grateful and blessed to have found such talented artists in Pixie Faire to enhance our creative process in our own little journey through time.It makes the value of our dolls more attractive because we put some much of ourselves into the costumes and bring back a time in history when our ancestors walked the earth. So exciting. It is a learning process not just for children but we adults who create these works of art on our dolls.

I would love to win this book for my granddaughter who is 9 years old……….she has a deep desire to learn to sew and I definitely want her to learn from an expert. She has watched me a lot and wants to learn badly. She just got a sewing machine of her own for Christmas and has watched a tutorial on a sausage pillowcase and completed this. So, I am anxious to get this book for her to read and learn more about sewing.

Growing up on a farm without “little” neighbors sewing became my friend. At a very early age Mom let me use her sewing machine and her fabric scraps to make clothes for my Revlon doll. This led to 4-H, high school Home Economics, B.S. Home Economics, M.S. Home Economics, teaching junior high, sewing for my daughters and their dolls. I’m now looking forward to sewing for my granddaughter Ruby’s little friends. Sewing is who I am.

I love sewing and I want to teach an 8-year old friend how to do it and enjoy it too. She has a new AG doll and her budget for that brand of clothing is non-existent. I have lots of fabric and patterns, but I would like her to learn to do it correctly. Sounds like your book is just the ticket! I learned to begin sewing with my grandmother and on her treadle machine. (Yes, I’m that old.)

I have sewn since I was big enough to reach the peddle on my grandmother’s machine. Yes, it gives the seamstress a sense of pride and accomplishment but it let me have have new clothes that we couldn’t afford to go to the store and buy ready made things.It is also a fantastic way to re-purpose materials, make gifts and other things long before the “green movement” became the “thing to do”. As I moved around the world with my military husband, I started teaching sewing. Not only did these groups teach a new skill but they also provided support for those, including myself, who were far away from family and old friends or whose spouses were gone for months at a time. These are just a few of the reasons why I love sewing.

Sewing is like art…you start with a canvas or material and create a masterpiece to be shared with others. Doll clothes are my masterpieces. The patterns and ideas I get through Pixie Faire and Liberty Jane are my tools to help make my masterpieces. When someone compliments the doll clothes I make it gives me a thrill beyond explanation.

I love to sew because it gives a feeling of accomplishment that housework and cooking don’t. i love a clean house, but how long does that last? And cooking a good meal that fills my family, wonderful, but the the dishes. When I finish a project, it is finished and I have some nice to wear, display or cuddle under. I also love to teach sewing to anyone willing to put in the time to learn.

I love to sew because it allows me to flex a creative muscle that I can’t in any other way. Sewing allows me to get what I really want – fit, shape, size, color, pattern, etc. Even though I still need a lot of practice, I learn something everytime I sew. I also really like giving something totally unique to someone I love.

Hi! My name is Ashley! A few reasons why I love sewing so much is because it gives me freedom to express myself. I get to sew with close family members. I get to make very fashionable clothing for American Girl dolls and humans. It makes happy and gives time to relax. I can create things with just a simple square. I always wanted a sewing machine ever since I was 6 years old and I finally got it for my birthday. So it feels amazing to make a dress that would take an hour instead of 3 days :). Thanks for the contest! You guys are awesome heroes to me! :D

I will soon be 71 years young. When I was in high school….every girl in the school was signed up for Home Ec., except for me. I hated sewing!! I was forced to take the class or else be the only girl in a study hall full of boys. So I did. I failed the sewing class as I knew I would. Years later after I was married and had two children….I developed the desire to sew for my little girl. Lo and behold…some of the basics did sink in from my high school Home Ec. class! I remembered how to read a pattern. So I experienced some delightful success during that time. By the time my youngest child was 9….I had double ovarian cancer and was carrying my third child. We both survived but not without years of serious health problems. All that has passed….and I’m still here and now with a very strong desire to learn to sew for my American Girl and other 18" dolls….and make their clothes turn out really nice! I would love to have this book to guide me along. I live in a tiny podunk village and there is absolutely nothing here but 300 people. The book would be just what I need!! :o) Thanks for the opportunity!

“I love sewing” because with each stitch and seam sewn there is a gratification in being part of a “creative process” that includes: inspiration from fabric that is pleasing to the eye or touch, a pattern that intrigues and challenges the sewer to bring it to form, and the excitement as the project takes shape.
Whether young or old, by hand or machine, sewing helps to build confidence in one’s ability to complete a task and see the results. Getting good results and elevating as much frustration as possible is best achieved by learning and using tried and true techniques, patterns with user friendly instructions and reliable equipment.
My interest in sewing was renewed, after an almost 35 year absence, with an interest to make doll clothes for my granddaughter, searching the internet for information and patterns, brought me to Liberty Jane websites and the rest is history. I recommend Cinnamon Mile’s Liberty Jane and Pixie Faire websites and links because “I love sewing” and I always get good results with little frustration when using any of her products or techniques.

My Mom taught me how to sew when I was very young. I saw the most beautiful things come out of what she created. I wanted to be just like her so that I could create something beautiful on my own and say that I created this and that I was thankful that my mom taught me how to do it. Sewing is an art and not just everyone can do it. I am one of the lucky ones. That is why I love sewing.

I love sewing, especially for other people. I love making doll clothes and seeing the joy on the faces of little girls when I present them with a new outfit for their dolls! I’ve also sewn outfits for my granddaughters themselves and they love that as well! Now my youngest granddaughter is becoming interested in sewing and I’ve already purchased her first machine. I would love to be able to give her Cinnamon’s new book along with it in hopes she will enjoy making things for herself and others as much as I do.

I love sewing because it is a wonderful reminder of the time I spent with my Mum who died 27 years ago when I was a young Mum. When I sew it bring a warm feeling of when she taught me how to sew at the age of 9. My 8 year-old Grand-daughter is wanting to learn how to sew now so I hope she has the same wonderful memories learning to sew with me.

Sewing is very creative, and the result can tell a lot about you…fun loving, playful, serious and impressive, active, detailed, comfortable and laid back. Just about anyway that you want to feel with your creations. I love to sew for dolls and stuffed animals; to decorate and refurbish with pillows, curtains, cushions; to give back with quilted scraps for charity; to relax and keep busy.

I made clothes for my two girls 30-40 years ago but it’s been YEARS since I could say I loved to sew. Last weekend, my 10 yo granddaughter spent the weekend with me and let me know her doll didn’t have much of a wardrobe. That got me to thinking and I decided to make her doll an entire wardrobe for Christmas. Today, I CAN say I’m loving sewing again. Making her doll clothes has been so much fun and I think I’m on my way to becoming a fabric hoarder!

I love sewing because alll the women in my family were excellent sewers. When I was five, my aunt started teaching me to hand sew clothes for my Tiny Tears doll. I was too young to gauge the correct size but I made a dress anyway, It took lots of fixes but I loved it. Later my grandmother taught me to sew using her treadle Singer. I made lots of my own clothing. I love the creativity of choosing the fabric, the style, and the trims. I even made lots of clothes for my children when they were younger. I moved into doll clothes and I love making them I am grateful that you have written a book for sewing because I respect the clothes and patterns that you creat for American Girl dolls. They got me interested in sewing again. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of your books..

Hi, I enjoy sewing again, it was something I had not done in years, just returned to the sewing machine in the past couple of years, can’t believe all the new techniques out there. I really need to upgrade to keep in touch with the pleasures of creating. Used to sew children’s clothes, now I get total enjoyment from making the “mini” 18" fashions. I really need the help from a new sewing guide, mine is over 50 years old! Hope I’m lucky.

I love sewing because I have always loved to be crafty, my grand-mother started teaching me when I was 9 and I try to teach my grand-daughters (8 and 12) when I get to see them. I had a massive heart attack and now am home. I was doing nothing but, I guess waiting to die, then one day my sweet little grand-daughter (now 9 from Va) called and said, “Maw-Maw”, I need some doll clothes for my American Girl Dolls. Who could resist that tiny little voice so, I made her over 500 pieces in all and mailed them to her for her birthday. I love my grand-children as we all do, I just don’t get to see my too often. I have to stay busy, hate TV, there aren’t any craft shows on anymore, don’t like to read unless it is about crafts or what I am doing. I would love to learn more about sewing. I took old clothes apart and other things to make some of the things because financially I can’t afford much new material and where I live you can’t buy any. I paint and just love to create. Thank God, for that tiny little voice on the phone about a year ago. Don’t know how much longer I have but, until the time comes I will be sewing for my grand-children things that they can pass on to generations to come.

Sewing is a passion for me. Its one of those things that is hard to explain. If I need to just get away I will scan over my patterns and books and can get lost for hours just deciding what project to work on. The fabrics and notions are like an endless sea of beauty just waiting to be turned into something to be treasured by someone I love. I also teach children to sew. They are amazing, I had a little boy in my class last year and he enjoyed it so much. He could sew straighter than the little girls! It is such a bonding time for me and my daughter, and nieces to be able to pass down a craft such as this. I feel truly blessed to be able to sew.

Why I love sewing…. It is the one way that I am sure that I can have clothes that fit my daughter… and still have enough fabric left over that we might be able to dress her dolls. And it is a great time to spend bonding with my mother and daughter… It gives us time to spend without TV, phones…. or anything else that tends to distract us and allows us to work towards making something beautiful out of scraps…

What I love most about sewing is starting off with this pile of weird shapes cut out of fabric. They go in one end and what comes out the other end is just real live magic to me. I love that feeling. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I learned to sew at age 9 and I’m 62 yrs old now. Sewing has been so fun to create and make so many things for my friends and family. I just love it!

I love sewing because it’s a way to be creative and never stop learning. I also love sewing because it’s something I can teach others. Congratulations on the book!

I can let my imagination go and create anything I want to, to the best of my ability. I can escape this world and leave all of my problems behind and enter into a new adventure everyday!

I love sewing because my mother taught me to sew and she left me a lifetime of knowledge and enjoyment and now that she is gone I think about her whenever I take a stitch on my quilts I make or listen to the humming of my sewing machine and I still strive at 55 to be as good of a seamstress as she was…..

I love to sew because it brings such satisfaction that I did it myself.

I love sewing because it lets me be creative in a fun way! When my grandma taught me how to sew 5 years ago I never would have dreamed that at 16 years old I would have a small business. My friends are a little jealous that I have a fun way to make money without having to have a “real” job. One of my favorite thing is to see girls come up to my booth with a HUGE smile on their face! I will never get tired of seeing little girls be so happy when they can buy an outfit or If they find an outfit similar to one of theirs. Definetly makes me very happy that I listened to my grandma while she taught me how to sew. Makes it all worth while! And that why I love to sew.

As a little girl I would always watch my mother sew on her treadle sewing machine being one of twelve it seams like she was always fixing or making something.
I love to sewing in every way cutting the project sewing it together adding my special ideas and seeing the project finished it just thrills me to see someone open a gift that I have sewed and see that they love it puts a smile in my heart.. I love to teach little girls how to sew that way it will keep passing the art of Sewing along to the next generation I have two little neighbor girls who love to help me make clothes for their AG dolls they aren’t old enough to sew by machine yet but they are eager that just thrills me to know that I helped them get started sewing, life is great when you can pass a little of your self to someone that is eager to learn…
Thank you for the giveaway

I love sewing for my granddaughters that is doll clothes. It is my therapy….Cotton therapy is what I call it. For the most part it is relaxing and I get to learn at the same time.

I love sewing because I can create a style that I do not see other people make. And the challenge, and joy that it brings me, is amazing. I learn on my mistake on every single project.
