    right now kiwk sew, but I am into accessories and Coltilde has several great patterns.

  2. Yvonne says:

    Simplicity…because…they are! Simple. Easy. Love that!

  3. Victoria Butler says:

    I love Simplicity. They seem to be the easiest to adapt and change when I want to get creative.

  4. Linda T says:

    I like Simplicity the best. They do a great job for Plus size sewers. Just because I am an experienced sewer, doesn’t mean I have to sew the hardest patterns all the time. Plus I have pattern-making software so I make my own patterns these days.

  5. Saskia says:

    I really like FarbenMix patterns !

  6. Jean B. says:

    Kwik Sew patterns fit me the best, and they are easy & fast. (Wish JoAnn’s sold them!) However, I am in the middle of using a Collette pattern and love the way everything is in a booklet. I’m anxious to see how the coat turns out.

  7. Sandy says:

    Hard to say but I guess Simplicity would be my favorite although I have used all brands.

  8. Louise says:

    I love Children’s Corner for all my grandchildren!

  9. Marija Vujcic says:

    It all depends on what I make, but it seems most of mine are McCalls, Vogue, then Simplicity… Happy creations to all!

  10. marya says:

    Burda Burda Burda!
    Just love their styling especially for children

  11. Joy says:

    “Making Children’s Clothes” –a book is my favorite. Its easy, even though not so much instruction. But it’s so FUN!!!

  12. Jo Stephens says:

    Kwik Sew-good basic styles, multiple sizes, heavy duty paper making copying different sizes easier.

  13. Marcia Neeley says:

    I love the old Vogue patterns. Recently I find the instructions poorly written , especially on the difficult ones. I have many vintage patterns and started researching. Love the history of Butterick…so at the moment that’s my favorite!

  14. Ashley smith says:

    I love Simplicity, they have the best bag and accessory patterns and they are quite easy.

  15. Pamela says:

    I like Kwik Sew, and Simpicity. Happy sewing everyone:)

  16. Barbara says:

    McCalls and Vogue – depending on what I’m making.

  17. Stacy says:

    OOOh, I haven’t EVER seen this book before! I have a soon to be 3 year old so this is perfect.

    I think Jalie is my favorite pattern company. I love that their patters are multi-sized so they fit even my 2 year old and I always get a great fit!

  18. Pat B says:

    Simplicity or McCalls

  19. For my clothing, Vogue seems to fit my imperfect body. I love the new McCalls series, the Simplicity Project Runway designs are so much fun, Lazy Girl for bags and accessories, and Kwik Sew for lingerie and swim wear.

  20. Charlene says:

    I still love the old McCall’s patterns. They seem to be well-written and they fit me!

  21. Alma says:

    Cindy Taylor Oates!

  22. The Sassy SEWer says:

    Kwik Sew for the quality of the paper, the well written instructions and Kwik Serge.

  23. Vwren says:

    I mostly sew children’s clothes, and my favorites are Old Fashioned Baby and Wendy Schoen patterns

  24. Sue Goodin says:

    I can’t say I have a favorite pattern company. I like alot of most.

  25. Debi Erbes says:

    for children’s patterns, I love Children’s Corner.

  26. Dawn says:

    Kwik Sew & Ottobre!

  27. Theresa says:

    Simplicity…easy instructions for a sewsew sewer like me!!!

  28. Joanne Deschenes says:

    I like ANY pattern company that makes patterns for us extra size sewers !!

  29. Carolyn Thomas says:

    My favorite patterns are McCalls. Because of my body type, I find McCalls fit better. Also the sizes seem more accurate. For example, I find Simplicity sizes are small( you’d need a bigger size, and I find I’m at a large enough size as it is. lol) Also Kwik Sew are good because they are so easy.

  30. I like a lot of different pattern companies…depends on the pattern, but would have to say that Kwik Sew is my favorite. This book looks so cute. I have a new grandson and would love to win it! Thanks for the opportunity!

  31. cindy says:

    I love McCalls and Simplicity Patterns. I have some from the early 30′s and 40′s that my granny used. I love them!

  32. angela says:

    oliver + s! and also i like the very simple patterns from simplicity which can be made easily and quickly and well for family and friends…

  33. Vicki Schoonover says:

    Kwic sew, I used them for my children and am now sewing for grandchilden with some of the same patterns, Love them!

  34. Lydia W says:

    Children’s Corner

  35. Susan G. says:

    I love McCalls patterns for their ease and unique styles.

  36. Jeny says:

    I like so many for different reasons: Vogue because of the cool designer details, Simplicity because it’s SO easy to follow, McCall’s and Butterick because you can usually always find a pattern for a classic look, Burda because it’s on trend and has great visual directions. Kwik Sew is hard to find in my area.

  37. kelly O! says:

    I actually have *three* favorites: Kwik Sew, Jalie and Ottobre!!

    My favorite is “You Can Make This”. Easy, up to date and fun patterns at great prices.

  42. Patricia says:

    I really like Simplicity patterns for myself….But I am in love with Burda patterns for my grandchildren! So cute and very unique in their styling! We just had our sixth grandchild, so I’ll be pouring over the kids Burda book again!


  43. Shanna Harris says:
