  1. I’m sew grateful for an amazing husband who doesn’t complain when I take over the dining room table to sew for myself and my oldest child.

    The apron skirt. I fell in love with it when I ready your sewing adventures with it. I want to make one of my own!

  2. Right now, I am so grateful to have the support of my partner. That he puts up with my incredibly-stressed-out-verging-on-the-burnout self is really nothing short of a miracle.

  3. I am sew grateful that I have the time in my life to sew a few hours each week!
    I love the Maria Denmark Day to Night top, that would be my choice. Thanks!

  4. I am sew grateful for my hubby’s patience with me when I try new sewing techniques on him :) I tried a shirt and it turned out not so great,.. Still he complimented me – “good try for a first timer” and wears the shirt when he goes out. Feels great.. :) And yes, I love to try the Winnie Wide Legged Trousers

  5. Oh wow, this is super generous of you-count me out though, I have all the patterns I need and skirts really aren’t my style (I rarely ever wear skirts and ride around town on a scooter/ use public transport so it won’t get used). You should totally make up the apron skirt in contrasting colours though.

    You have a Good idea. From France.

  13. I’m sew grateful for the sewing community and the friends I’ve made through it. I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say that it’s changed my life for the better.

  14. I’m sew grateful I have a skill set for the post-zombie apocalypse! (Just finished a walking dead binge) In a world where you can’t just buy clothes anymore I’m sure my ability to knit and sew will be useful!

  15. As a working mom with two little ones I’m SEW grateful for any chance to sew. Usually that translates to a particularly riveting cartoon or the wee ones taking a longer nap. I’d love to try that skirt.

  16. the apron skirt looks great! hope to win it!

  17. Day to night top would be my sew-grateful choice! Susan

  18. I am sew grateful for the encouragement and help I get from my family to enjoy my hobby.

    Day to night drape top (all three are great btw!)

  19. Oh what a lovely prize and it’s so difficult to choose, but I think the Portefeuille skirt is so elegant and would be a great addition to my collection.

    As for being grateful, will it’s difficult to choose, but possible my mother for getting me sewing in the first place when I was probably 7 or 8. There are so many bad habits that I refuse to change because Mum taught them to me!! :-)

  20. I am so very grateful for the support and encouragement of my family as I sew. Their encouragement and help is amazing. I am also grateful for the online community, as it inspires and uplifts me as well.

    I would choose the apron skirt! Thank you!

  21. I’ve always liked being able to sew things I like that are of better fit quality than whatever you might find in the store. That has kept we well dressed for work when I didn’t have the paycheque to match.
    Thank you for hosting this giveaway. I’ve like Paco’s Half Circle skirt for awhile now.
    All the best to you!

  22. I love the Portefeuille skirt – it’s has such an interesting wrap styling.

    Hmmm….it’s hard to choose one grateful thing, even if I narrow it to sewing related. Very high on the list is gratefulness for the wonderful online sewing community. I’ve “met” so many people and without them I’d have no one to share my hobby with!

  23. I am sew grateful for being taught how to do hand embroidery stitches by my mom before that … Around 7 or 8 …. For being allowed to use my moms treadle machine at around 8 or 9 .. Sew grateful g
    For talented experienced sewists to share their wonder tutorials on their blogs and YouTube.

    I’d love to win Maria’s day and night top. Love the cowl neck!! Not too deep ; not too high; just right!

  24. And — I like the apron pencil skirt!

  26. I’d like to be entered for Prize 1. I really like the “Half Circle skirt” pattern from Paco Peralta. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people I have met through blogging and the kindness and creativity of the online sewing community. I am always inspired by reading other sewing blogs! I learned to sew through 4-H and I am very grateful for that. Without that opportunity, I don’t think I would be sewing today. Thank you for the giveaway!
