    I would love to win because I cannot find the publication anywhere.

  2. Elaine McD says:

    It’s hard to choose but Stacy Schyler is a self proclaimed “fabric junkie”. I feel a connection….lol Love you mag! Thanks for the chance :)

  3. Jane says:

    Excellent mag, lots of tips and hints.

  4. Cherie says:

    I am happy to hear Sunni Standing is a contributor. I love Sew It All magazine. I wish that it would come out more often.

  5. Stacysews is in my opinion an ‘up coming and starring’ contributor. She is doing what I would like to begin. I am a fine artist of watercolor paintings as well as oil paintings, who enjoys designing art for fabric, fashion design and architectural structural design. I would like to be added to the list of contributors for Sew News.

  7. TinaLou says:

  8. Melissa says:

    Looks like a great issue!

  9. Angela says:

    I’ve been a follower of Sharon since she made the yellow goddess gown and posted the tutorial. That is still one of my go to dresses. I remember when Sunni had long hair, but it’s the tutorials that keep me riveted. I’m waiting for a book. And I’ve been tuning into Vanessa’s channel ever since I saw a news program that featured her a few years ago. I couldn’t possibly pick one favourite as they all give something different every time I visit them. Sharon’s post about this giveaway is what drew me here. I am going to download the pants pattern right now!
