Our sponsor today just was so generous with the prizes, I was speechless.  I'd already dealt with Gold Star as a customer several times, when I need small bits and pieces, special feet for my sewing machine and things which were hard to find elsewhere.  So when I contacted them about taking part in the series, I already knew that they had fabulous products and excellent customer service and that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Looking for special supplies such as boning, eyelets and grommets, pattern making tools, unusual snaps and rivets, or a part for your sewing machine – Gold Star has it all.  If you want something larger such as a sewing machine, serger, dress form, large cutting table, or steam press you can find them all here too.

  32. VickiT says:

    Hello ~ I am a new follower. I found your blog shortly after your Seasonal Sewing series had started. I really loved all of your tutorials because they weren’t the same ones I have seen in many other blogs over the years. You had some original ideas posted which is great. I really love the wine bag because while I have seen many other wine gift bags, none have been padded. Why I never thought to do that myself I have no idea. I’ve often wondered about putting wine into a bag of fabric with no protection at all so your tutorial is wonderful. Thank you for all the awesome tutorials.

  33. personal reflection says:

    I haven’t seen the series. I am getting started getting back into sewing so that I can make clothes for myself and my kid.

  34. Terri S says:

    I love the series. Thank you for putting it together.

  35. Judith S. says:

    Great series with some projects I had not considered. Expanded my horizons to try new projects. Wish I would have followed sooner.

  36. Ella says:

    I loved the variety of projects!

  37. Trish F says:

    Hello, I love everything about the Seasonal Sewing Series. My only complaint, is there is not enough hours in the day to tackle some of these great projects. Thanks for sharing and especially thanks for the great giveaway!

  38. Becky Marter says:

    love it, sure would love to win a serger. Thanks fot the chance.

  39. Nora Charles says:

    I’d love the serger. Mine died ages ago and i can’t sew without one! Love your site!!!

  40. SuzzyQ says:

    What a great series and in lots of time for Christmas! I enjoy reading your sewing adventures too.
