  1. Beth T. says:

    Mostly fabric and books, not really any tech-y things. Although if someone slips in one of Julie Herman’s Hex rulers, I won’t complain. :)

  2. a wonderful thimble…..

  3. JoAnn L says:

    So far, I am content with the gadgets I have. But, I could use a couple of really good thread cases for my embroidery thread!

  4. Becky Greene says:

    Well, Santa came early and left me a vintage Singer 15-91 which was in perfect shape (used about six times and I totally believe it after trying to find something to clean on it.) That was my biggest wish, but I also want the bigger pack of Wonder Clips (10 is no longer enough) and a year’s supply of rotary cutter blades :-) I would also love to have a 60-degree ruler. Thanks for the chance to win the Ty fabric.

  5. Terry Kessinger says:

    I’m wanting one of those portable frames to quilt by hand. However, I will say that at the top of my list is gift money for more FABRIC and batting!! :)

  6. Pamela S says:

    Rotating cutting board, the kind you can spin 360 degrees ~ Thanks for the great giveaway! Ty’s fabrics are lots of fun and have wonderful hues!

  7. Ann Pugh says:

    My holiday wish for a new tool was for a sit down quilting machine…and it arrived a bit early! I now have a Babylock Tiera and I have already quilted two wall hangings! Happiness is not having to wrestle a big project under a small machine! If someone has some spare time to give me……

  8. Marty Mason says:

    My very first item on the wish list (there are many quilty things on it) is an extension table for my take-along Bernina B330. What a wonderful giveaway….and am enjoying this chance to win. Happy holidays to you.
