    I love that tote and would like to make it. I want to get confidence enough to make my own bags because I can never find anything I like that I can afford. :( Classic champagne taste with a beer budget.

  2. Sherrie says:

    Amy Butler has been my favorite for years—I keep small amounts of her older fabrics because they are so wonderful and I am afraid of never being able to get them again.

  5. Cindy Antcliff says:

    I have three fabs! Nancey Zeiman for her forever years of education and passion for sewing! Nancy is the true inspiration and her teachings make sewing a dream. Christopher Nejman and his designer handbags that are totally runway styles. Darlene Cahill who I started following when I seen her on HSN. Energy and enthusiasm for sewing is infectious!!!

  6. Kath says:

    I really do not have a favorite fabric designer, but I can never pick a favorite quilt at a quilt show either.

    I do not yet have a favorite fabric designer. I’ve just started getting interested in quilting and doing more sewing. I had only ever looked at fabric at my local Joann’s. But after spending time looking at blogs, I’ve seen more fabric than I ever knew existed. I am amazed at how much is out there. Makes my local Joann’s pale by comparison.
