    Argh. Favorite designer?? Too. Many. To. Pick…The one whose fabrics I've been using a lot lately is Sandi Henderson. It's quality, and it's pretty. 🙂

  2. Love them all, but Heather Bailey is my FAVE :)and so are her new patterns! LOVE the Butterfly and Piggy pattterns. Wee one would love them :)Thanks for an awesome giveaway Melanie!!Denise

  3. Of course I follow Melanie on Twitter 🙂

  4. Jessica says:

    Well, who does LOVE Amy Butler? But I also like Paula Prass! Aaahh who am I kidding..they are ALL great! 🙂

  5. Jessica says:

    I always get $$ for my birthday…so no complaints here 🙂

  6. Sew Lovins says:

    Going to have to go wih Alexander Henry..but it was tough!!!! xoxooxox

  7. Sew Lovins says:

    worst birthday gift?? maybe a cheesy hallmark expressions card…i hate those!!!! xoxoxoo

  8. i love anything moda, and free spirit is amazing!

  9. worst birthday gift ever was from an aunt i won't name… she gave me a necklace that she had been wearing (it had her hair stuck in it) and mismatched used earrings. needless to say that's the point i wrote her off as a decent gift giver!

  10. and i'm following melanie now!

  11. Tanya says:

    It's hard to decide I have favorites from each designer, so I'll say Heather Bailey.

  12. Tanya says:

    Worst birthday gift…school supplies, my bday is Aug 19 close to the start of school so for many years people always bought me binders and pencils, useful but not fun for a kid!

  13. Ashley says:

    My fav is Heather Bailey.

  14. Ashley says:

    The worst present ever was a glass boot soap dispenser with fake flowers inside. The look of shock was priceless, I'm sure. What do you say to a present like that??

  15. Charlene says:

    My worst b-day present was the year I didn't get one. Not even a card. And I was pregnant and hormonal. Seems like hubby did have something planned, but neglected to clue me in that we'd be celebrating a few days later. But, gee, even a card or a "happy birthday" would have been nice on the actual day! 😦

  16. Charlene says:

    And, hey, I'm loving the material patterns Moda has been putting out lately. So pretty!

  17. Becca says:

    I love them all – especially Heather Bailey! 🙂

  18. Katie says:

    Favorite designer is so hard to pick… I think Heather Bailey. 🙂 katievarela@att.net

  19. Great Fabrics over there! I like the Riley Blake Bloom & Grow fabrics – the colors are perfecto!Thanks

  20. I left her a message on her blog!:)Brenda

  21. Megan says:

    SO hard to choose, I just got a sewing machine from my great aunt, a 1978 singer fashion mate, so I am a little fabric crazy right now….anywho, I love Paricia Bravo and Heather Bailey!

  22. Rebecca says:

    I love her shop and she has great customer service! One of my favorite designers she carries is Patty Young (ModKid). Thanks for the chance at a great prize!!rebeccaaikema(at)hotmail(dot)com

  23. Rebecca says:

    I left a comment on her blog :)rebeccaaikema(at)hotmail(dot)com

  24. Rebecca says:

    My worst gift? Probably the knitting needle set I got ten years ago, it seemed like a terrible gift because I don't knit. But I held onto them and just recently started my first knitting project – who knew?!rebeccaaikema(at)hotmail(dot)com

  25. SewLindAnn says:

    There were several of my favorite designers, Laura Gunn is the one I'd pick for this moment in time.

  26. SewLindAnn says:

    I left a comment on her blog, and signed up to get the feed and newsletter. Her shop is set up really nice. I plan on checking it out further.

  27. SewLindAnn says:

    Hmmm, worst gift. I can't remember not liking anything. I'm really pretty easy to please, and as long as someone brings me coffee in the morning and lets me do whatever I want all day (sewing/gardening) without taking care of anyone else, I'm good.

  28. Sara says:

    I left a comment on her blog.Sara S.

  29. Sara says:

    I like the fabric colors from My Mind's Eye.Sara S.

  30. Sara says:

    favorite designer will always be Amy Butler, and I'm happy to see that she has some in her store!

  40. k. davis says:

    I don't think I ever had a "worst" birthday gift… but an unusual one, was for those "MC HAMMER" style of pants! hahah now that I look back on it, I shake my head and wonder, "Why?"

  43. I went over and said hello…and signed up for her news letter. Off to read more…amerskine at hotmail dot com

  44. Worst gift, I would have to say the one that I never received…. The "oh I left it at home" knowing they never really got anything. It's better to not say anything at all vs. to lie. :Samerskine at hotmail dot com

  45. Elaine says:

  50. Worst birthday gift ever = fishing pole and tackle box…so I could go fishing with the EX…notice, I say EX. There is a reason for that. Nothing against fishing, just not my cup of tea (city mouse I am, not a country mouse)….catherine s.

  51. emtdlb says:

    Can't say I ever met a fabic I didn't like. But the Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye was nice and old school traditional for me today. Will definately be going back to check out more fabric-which is my addiction as well. Thanks for the chance!

  52. emtdlb says:

    I can't say I have ever had a bad present-I never got that many. We mostly got to pick out the cake we wanted and that was it. Although maybe the vacuum cleaner my husband got me one year might qualify.

  53. emtdlb says:

    Left Melanie a message-I will definately be checking back to see what she is up to. Thanks for the chance!!!!

  73. Dawn says:

    Heather Bailey is my favorite, by far!

  74. Dawn says:

    I had a boyfriend in high school who always purchased an item for himself as a "gift" for me on special occasions. Glad I found a sweet husband who always goes above and beyond on special days. =D

  75. My favorite fabric designer whose fabric is carried at Above All Fabric is Amy Butler.

  76. The worst birthday gift I received was a "gift set" that was received free with purchase at a cosmetic counter!!!

  77. So many cute fabrics, but I'd have to say the pirate monkeys b/c I live with two them.

  78. This wasn't really a gift, but my favorite aunt passed away from cancer on my birthday 3 years ago. Yeah, real bummer.

  79. Kristi says:

    I love Amy Butler!!

  80. Kristi says:

  84. Sarah Bock says:

    I've gotten some really bizarre Christmas presents that I remember but not birthday. Usually they involve some odd odd clothing that older relatives think is stylish.

  85. Caci says:

    I really love Amy Butler fabric! But like most I have yet to meet a fabric I don't like.

  86. Caci says:

    The worst birthday gift I ever received was bird feeder from my in-laws (who by the way know that I am deathly afraid of birds)!
