  1. I would like to see a quilt pattern complete with both machine and hand embroidery designs.

  2. Cheryl says:

    I have fond memories of embroidering my infant daughter’s tiny cotton t-shirts! Embroidering these tiny T’s was my introduction to embroidery. My now grown daughters have them as keepsakes. Having an embroidery contest is a charming way to introduce others to the satisfying art of embroidery.

  3. Barri says:

    I would love some embroidery articles.

  4. Vickie says:

    I love embroidery. Simple and easy techiniques would be good.

  5. Sheri Whiteley says:

    It would be great to see a few more embroidery projects that can be downloaded. I have had my embroidery machine for several years and have yet to use any designs on it. So many techniques to learn and to far from any place to go and learn. So yes as a once in awhile thing I enjoy Sew News as it is but having a little embroidery projects every so often would be Great. Thanks for the contest too would love to win Catus Punch

  6. Inita says:

    Yes it would be nice to see some. But I like the clothing design.

  7. Mamta says:

    I love embroidery. I want to learn simple and easy work which look good and easy too.

  8. Have never had a complaint with your choice of articles, projects and learning opportunities. Adding embroidery designs and techniques would be just fine with me.

  9. Mary Ann Coleman says:

    More embroidery designs in Sew News would be nice.

  10. Susan says:

    I have a new embroidery machine and I’m just learning how to use it. Would love to see techniques, projects and downloadable designs. Thanks!

  11. Nancy Lee says:

    As much fun as the embroidery machine is, I still enjoy hand embroidery…redwork especially.. would be nice to see some designs…

  12. Peggy Belcher-Dixon says:

    Yes, I think more embroidery should be included because most high-end machines come with embroidery capability. Also, it increases the variety of special stitches that are available for regular sewing and tailoring.

  13. Ivette says:

    Yes ,I like embroidert designs too.It will be nice to include some in the magazine we can download, thank you

  14. Ivette says:

    I love the projects, techniques, advize, coments, etc.

  15. Gail Banks says:

    Machine embrodery is very addicting. I still find myself sitting and watching it stitch the design. My fav is sewing little girls clothes and using embrodery to personalize them. I would love to win the collection!!

  16. Diana J says:

    I think you have the right amount of embroidery now. I also appreciate learning more about sewing techniques which includes machine and hand embroidery. I concur with another commenter – if you are going to have machine embroidery projects, it would be nice to include an adaptation of the project for those who do not have embroidery machines (perhaps an outline of the embroidery that can be hand embroidered instead?).

  17. Jennifer Ingley says:

    Yeah! Love Sue Hausmann and embroidery info. The current Sew News was fantastic!

  18. Gleanne Taylor says:

    I like to embroider too but I don’t seem to take much time to do it. I have done both hand and machine. I would like to see some simple basic patterns for young people so that I am able to teach it to my granddaughters and pass it on to the next generation.

  19. I would like to see more embroidery things in sewNews. I especially like things that combine sewing and embroidery

  20. Karen B says:

    I wouldn’t mind some articles about embroidery techniques as long as they don’t overtake the magazine. I have many interests, including machine and hand embroidery, but love SewNews for it’s focus on sewing techniques and projects. Embroidery info could certainly be included for many of the projects featured.

  21. Patty Visk says:

    Yes, some embroidery would be good. I would like projects used with machine embroidery. Maybe taking an embroidery card and using the different components to make a complete project. So many times I see embroidery cards with one or two designs on them that I like, but won’t purchase it just for those designs. Whereas, if I had a project in mind to use some of the other designs, I would be more apt to purchase the card.

  22. I to love machine embroidery. I am always awed by the way the design develops on the fabric. It adds that extra touch to any project. Like my fabric stash, my embroidery collections grow faster that I can possibly use them.

  23. Nancy says:

    Love these designs! Machine embroidery is addicting. Please pick me!

  24. Djuana says:

    I would love to have this collection. I have a very limited set of embroidery designs.

  25. marlis says:

    I would love to win this.. So should sew news add more embroidery, only if they want to stay up with the times – so yes. I’d show a basic and an advanced technique for each project..

  26. CatlynnSews says:

    Yes – more embroidery would be great. I hand and machine embroidery. Hand is my favorite, but machine embroidery makes money for me.

  27. Can you say “obsessed”? I have been exactly that since 2000 when my hubby bought me my first embroidery machine! I now have a small machine for the RV so I can get my fix when we are on the road for long periods of time. You can NEVER have too many designs or learn too many new techniques. My favorites are in-the-hoop projects. I can’t get enough of them so the more you can put in Sew News, the better!

  28. alice says:

    I would like to see more embroidery on denim and suede such as borders on skirts.

  29. Linda Gillespie says:

    I am always interested in learning new ways to embroider. I have 2 embroider machines and I don’t use them as much as I need to.Any new technique would be helpful.

  30. tricia raines says:

    I am new to sew news but do have an embroidery machine and would love to learn new techniques, etc.

  31. Cynthia Tobolt says:

    SewNews is my favorite sewing magazine and I love embroidery so would enjoy seeing some. It’s part of my sewing projects.

  32. Stephanie says:

    I would love to see embroidery project for fashion clothing, including sources for the designs used.

  33. deb says:

    I love learning new embroidery techniques, esp how to embroider on hard to hoop fabrics like microsuede and clothing

  34. Karyl says:

    I think it is good to have a balance of sewing techniques in the magazine and that would include embroidery, machine and hand. Both are techniques that enhance the sewing experience. Not everyone has an embroidery unit so it is also nice to see how the ideas can be adapted for all sewers.

  35. Jean Carpenter says:

    I LUV embroidery…Primitive is my fave, but I’ve been know to work on some really pretty girly projects as well….Embroidery in a quilt is so “Personal”. Hand embroidery is ONE of my favorite pastimes…I will never machine embroider…just a personal choice
