CarolynSoto1 CarolynSoto1 writes: Last year I sewed aprons for all of my girl cousins. Will try to do something similar this year too, as I rediscovered the joys of sewing with 100% cotton, miles of bias binding, and some of the vintage tools in my collection, such as the ruffler and binding foot.

KarenGass KarenGass writes: I always make homemade Christmas and enjoy it very much. Last year, everyone got fleece jammie pants. This year they are getting those hot/cold packs you can make with cherry pits. A lot easier than jammie pants!!! I would love to win this book, and maybe make a little something special for the ladies :) Karen Gass

Cair Cair writes: I am planning to make hand-sewn/ embellished gifts for all my children this Christmas, both to save money but also to give them something meaningful that could become an heirloom. I have thought a lot more about how to leave something behind for them that is a connection between us and not just "stuff".
