Here at Connecting Threads, we love the holiday season! Our offices are decorated with shiny ornmanents, garland, and twinkling lights, and everyone’s faces are smiling because Christmas is right around the corner.

One thing is certain, the Connecting Threads team is in the spirit of giving. We want to make someone’s Christmas extra special this year, so we have partnered up with Arrow Cabinets and we’re giving away a beautiful Sewnatra cabinet in your choice of White or Black!

Besides being a cute cabinet, the Sewnatra offers most of the features that the larger cabinets have, but in a convenient compact size. When the cabinet is closed, the shuttered door gives the cabinet a cottage look that doubles as a beautiful piece of home furniture. When opened, the cabinet offers ample sewing space and great storage. We love this piece!

Regularly priced at $479.99, and on sale right now for $409.99, the Sewnatra is our biggest giveaway prize of the year. Now, as I mentioned above, the CT team are fully immersed in the Christmas spirit, and we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to win. Unfortunately, the Sewnatra cabinet can only be shipped to folks in the contiguous United States, so Connecting Threads is also offering two $20 gift cards to residents of the United States and Canada.

To be entered to win, all you need to do is leave us a comment below telling us one of your quilting goals for the new year, and whether you would like to win the cabinet in a Black or White finish. We will pick our winners on Monday, December 24th – just in time for Christmas!

Rules: One entry per person. No purchase necessary. The cabinet giveaway applies only to residents of the contiguous US. The gift card giveaway applies only to residents of the US and Canada. Comments must be made before 11:59pm on Sunday, December 23rd. We will select our winners on Monday, December 24th and announce them shortly thereafter. Comments MUST be made on this blog post to be counted. Comments made on other blog entries will not be included for consideration. Comments placed on our Facebook page are valid and will be considered. Winners will be selected randomly. You must meet the comment criteria to win. Good luck!

    I plan to just do more quilting to get better. I’m still a beginner so I just need to do more. I also want to get better with doing triangles.

    I am excited to quilt up the Bookish fabric I just got into a queen quilt for my own bed in 2013. Also, hoping to make a couple more eye spies for the kids.

    My goal is to finish my son-in-law’s mother’s UFOs. She passed away suddenly last month and I would like to be able to complete and give her quilts to the family members. I like black!

    I have two goals (there’s always one in every crowd who is a nonconformist – LOL)…. I have an embroidery/crazy quilt to finish for my daughter-in-law. Two more embroidery purses to make for it then start on all the blocks. I’m also planning to make several small lighthouse art quilts. This cabinet is the perfect size for me as we have downsized our space and small is beautiful. I’d love it in white!
    Thanks for such a great giveaway. Merry Chirstmaws.

    I’ve never seen this cabinet before. I really like it. I just got a new sewing machine that needs a home in my sewing room, this cabinet would be perfect.

  7. Sharon Kendall Says:

    I have at least 5 to 10 “project boxes” that have partially pieced quilts/wall hangings. I also have a new sewing machine that needs a home. Putting my new machine in a beautiful white cabinet like this one would give me a place to finish these UFO’s

  8. Jennifer Hope Says:
    12/18/2012 7:32 am

    White on! (Yes I would like the WHITE cabinet!)
    Goals – use my gorgeous collection of batiks and make that Baltimore album on black background. It will be stunning!

    I hope to quilt more this year. I seem to have gotten side tracked this year with other projects, but I plan to get back in the swing of it. Maybe I’ll even try a few new techniques while I’m at it. I love the cabinet, white would match my sewing room nicely.
    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  14. Heidi Says:

    My goal would just be to use up some of the fabric I’ve been buying and hoarding over the years. I think the white cabinet would be lovely.

  24. Erin Marie Says:
    12/18/2012 9:29 am

    My goal for 2013 is to kick free-motion quilting’s butt. I don’t want to be scared of it anymore. I don’t want basted quilts to sit in a pile until I’m feeling brave enough to tackle them. I want to sit down and quilt the life out of those quilts and do it well.

  25. Laura Says:
    12/18/2012 9:36 am

    My first goal of the new year will be to finish a baby quilt before my baby comes in April! Dear Santa, I like the white one! Thank you for the chance to win!

  26. Vicky Says:

    My first quilting related goal is to get organized! I need to set up my play spaces so I can spend my time creating, not shifting machines and fabric around. The white cabinet could fit right in to my plans.

    My goal this year is to make a lap blanket for my sister out of old jeans of my nephew’s, her son. My sister’s son was an Army Ranger KIA in Afghanistan 9-13-12. Kyle was her only child. She recently gave me some of his old shorts, jeans, etc and I so want to make her this quilt so she can wrap him around her whenever she wants.

  31. Penny Says:

  37. Marilyn Anderson Says:
    12/18/2012 10:23 am

    I purchased fabric about 8 years ago for a quilt for myself and haven’t used it because I make other quilts for family and friends. It seems I always come last. This year, I plan to make this quilt for myself! Merry Christmas to all and hope you all complete the projects mentioned.

  38. Nancy Lowinger Says:
    12/18/2012 10:24 am

    I have huge plans to quilt some of my backlog over the holiday break. I really want to get organized in 2013 and start using some of my stash. Last year I bought my 5 year old granddaughter a sewing machine and didn’t think about where I might put it. I would love to win the white Sewnatra cabinet so she could match her nana’s sewing cabinet and we could work on our projects in 2013 together. Merry Christmas!

  39. Allison Bayer Says:
    12/18/2012 10:24 am

    My 2013 sewing goals include taming my 8 scrap drawers and using those scraps to make quilts to keep and give away. I’d love the opportunity to win the cabine
    t in white. Thanks to the staff and all they do to make piecing and quilting fun!! Merry Christmas

  40. Andrea Gravely Says:

  41. Sue Schmidt Says:
    12/18/2012 10:26 am

    My goal for 2013 is to get “ORGANIZED”. A White Sewnatra Cabinet could hold my machine, thread and cutting tools. That would leave me room for cutting, laying out and piecing my quilts. What a wonderful Christmas present this would be!

  42. Cheri Williams Says:
    12/18/2012 10:26 am

    I would love to have the white cabinet if I win. I plan to finish the Christmas wallhanging started by my mother-in-law and give it to my brother-in-law. He ia really struggling from his mothers death as she was his care giver for the last 15 years.

  43. Sandy Todd Says:
    12/18/2012 10:28 am

    What a great give-a-way! I have a full-size Dresden Plate quilt started. Unfortunately, it’s been sitting waiting for me to finish for months. I’m making it a priority in the new year to complete it. White would be my preference. Thanks for the chance to win.

  44. Beverley Says:
    12/18/2012 10:31 am

    My goal, as usual, is to make a huge dent in my “warehouse” stash…love CT’s batiks and am in the process of sewing a fabulous quilt in them for my favorite cuz.

  45. Lana Dougherty Says:
    12/18/2012 10:33 am

    The white one is my choice! My goal for 2013 is to finish up some UFO’s. We’ve all got them…..I’ve just got more than most!

  46. Alyce Foster Says:
    12/18/2012 10:34 am

    I have many reasons to win the white sewing cabinet, you ask for one, to get ORGANIZED before my husband goes crazy. Thank you

  47. Angela Obeso Says:
    12/18/2012 10:35 am

    I have many quilty goals for 2013, but the biggest is probably to tackle my UFO pile and get them all done! I should note that anything started in 2013 would not be included in this goal, haha! I also want to challenge myself with new skills and techniques this upcoming year. I would love to have one of these cute cabinets and have been eyeing them for some time. I think the black one is nice! Thanks for the great service and opportunity to win!

  48. Colette M. McNinch Says:
    12/18/2012 10:36 am

    My goal for 2013 would be to get a little more organized since I moved from a house to a small 2 bedroom apartment and am making the second bedroom into a combination guest room / sewing room. The black cabinet would go great in that room and help me get more organized in the process!!! Thanks!!!

  49. Beverly Hirsch Says:
    12/18/2012 10:37 am

    My number one NY Eve resolution this year is to organize the sewing room I have set up in my new home which is a huge downsize from my previous one. I need do weed out and give away many things, and find ways to neatly fit in what I keep. It’s so difficult for me, and extremely time consuming. In the meantime I have very little space to do my quiltmaking in. I feel sure that a Sewnatra cabinet would give me a big boost in that direction, and to my sense of loss.

  50. Crystal Adame Says:
    12/18/2012 10:38 am

    My goal for 2013 is to learn to quilt. I was gifted a baby quilt when my son was born and since then i’ve held an interest in quilting. I’d love the cabinet in black!

  51. Arllys Says:
    12/18/2012 10:38 am

    As a new quilter, I have bought lots of material and have patterns cut and now need a cabinet for my machine. My Grannie was a handquilter. I have been, as well, but am now moving into machine piercing. Happy New Year to all Quilters, everywhere.

  52. Kristie Marton Says:
    12/18/2012 10:38 am

    I want to organize my sewing space. It will probably take a year to accomplish that! Then I finally want to complete the Hungry Caterpillar quilt for my grandchildren before they get too old to appreciate it. I would like a white cabinet.

  53. Lola Crouch Says:
    12/18/2012 10:38 am

    I have been ill a long time, but have improved and now sewing. I long to make gifts for people who are suffering, lonely or sad. It brings me great joy. I do not have a machine table at all, but I am using a folding table which is rather wobbly. I hope the person who needs this will get it.

  54. jjurgens Says:
    12/18/2012 10:39 am

    I just tore into my sewing room and boy do I have work to do in 2013 to reorganize. The cabinet would be a tremendous addition to the room. I have several kits I need to tackle when the reorganization is complete.

  55. Tiffany Ray Says:
    12/18/2012 10:40 am

    I have a quilt to finish – all the HST are done – now to piece the blocks I also want to make a purse. Have the pattern and all the supplies, now just need to get to it! I also asked for the Amy Butler Weekender pattern for x-mas, if I get it, that will definitely be on my to do list for the new year.

  56. Lola Crouch Says:
    12/18/2012 10:41 am

    I would like a cabinet for my really old machine. It would like the black one. Since I have been ill a long time,I have longed to sew gifts for others. I am better now and hoping to replace the wobby cardtable with this beautiful cabinet.

  57. Betsey Warhurst Says:
    12/18/2012 10:41 am

    My goal is to make a baby quilt for my 10th grandchild. I have made one for each grandchild and love the Connecting Threads quilt kits. Of course, I am hoping for a new collection from Country Essentials (hint,hint).
    I would prefer white for the cabinet – but either color is just fine. Merry Christmas!

  58. Joan Says:
    12/18/2012 10:41 am

    I now have time to sew, if I win surprise me of the color, like making blankets for any one, even dogs, my past time since my husband died, thanks in advance.

  59. Andrea Smith Says:
    12/18/2012 10:42 am

  60. Dawn Burhans Says:
    12/18/2012 10:42 am

    I would so love this cabinet. My spare room is the guest room, office, and craft room all at once. This would allow me to close up the sewing section when I have guests.

  61. Kim May Says:
    12/18/2012 10:43 am

    2013 will be a year to finish everything I started in 2012!!! The cabinet in the white finish will help me get organized. Merry Christmas!!!!

    12/18/2012 10:43 am

    Merry Christmas to all at CT. What a wonderful gift to win. If I should be the lucky winner I would love it in white. My goal for 2013 is to give more of myself to the community in a quilting way. I hope to make at least one community quilt a month for a the next year. I have accomplished this in the past so know I can do it once again. Just need to get organized and by winning the lovely cabinet it would certainly help.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All.

  64. Sheila Craft Says:
    12/18/2012 10:44 am

    My top priority for 2013 is to get organized! Hubby is finishing up a room for all of my “stuff” so that I’ll give him back the living room and the TV – Hmmmph! Right now I’m sewing on a borrowed fold up banquet table so a black Sewnatra would make a great beginning to my new space!

    After 20 years of marriage, raising a son and putting ourselves through college, my husband and I have purchased our home. While beautiful, it needs some TLC. One of the selling points of this house was the bonus room over the garage which is planned to become my sewing room (I think my husband is sick of finding thread in the bed, on the counch in the dog bed…). The sewing room is scheduled to be renovated in March! We have never had a space of our own that we could do what we wanted and I have big plans for making and hanging quilts and using the quilts as decor not just as a utility.

  66. Emily Says:
    12/18/2012 10:46 am

    One of my quilting goals for this coming year is to finish a quilt that I started last summer for my son. I keep putting it off, and I just need to buckle down and finish it. If I won, I would like the cabinet in white.

    12/18/2012 10:46 am

    My goal for 2013 is to finish quilting my pieced quilt tops. Like magic they have been piling up. I love the
    black cabinet. Well, here is a toast to 2013 in the hope that my quilt tops will be completed and I can fill there
    box with more fabric to fuel my creativity.

  68. Cynthia Says:

  69. Denise Smart Says:
    12/18/2012 10:49 am

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to improve my free motion quilting skills. I want to accomplish the paisley design. A white sewing cabinet where my sewing machine could sit flush with the surface sure would help.

    A new retiree social security wise would love to have a white cabinet for stability of her sewing machine so it doesn’t bounce off the card table she uses. Sewing and mach emb become a challenge when in use. So many ufo’s to finish and so many new things to learn to sew for my family. Quilting has caught my eye.

    My goal in 2013 is to finish up my new great grandsons 2 quilts that I started for him when I first learned he was joining our family. He is three months old now. I think it’s time to get them finished. I like the white but the black is also beautiful. I would ask for it in black. It will show the dirt more so I will know it’s time to clean :)

  75. Mary Scharfenberg Says:
    12/18/2012 10:52 am

    I would love to win this cabinet for my sewing machine! It would be so nice for our family room where I could sew and visit with my husband! He retired this November and I know this would be so nice! Thank you for this contest! Mary

    I am just learning to quilt and sew from two friends that are teaching me and starting to build a stash! I look forward to completing my first quilt in 2013 and starting many new wonderful projects. This cabinet (in black) would help me organize my supplies and enjoy my new hobby :-)

  81. Jessica Says:
    12/18/2012 10:57 am

    My main goal is to get everything organized and keep it that way – I currently use a regular desk with drawers, so this cabinet would SURE be a blessing!
    I am happy white or black, though white would be great!

  82. Denita Schroeder Says:
    12/18/2012 10:58 am

    I am working on getting more projects completed throughout 2013. I would like to win this cabinet as it would really help me to get things more organized and a nice place to keep a sewing machine, instead of always having to pack it up and put it away in a closet. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to finish a quilt I started when my daughters were one and three… they are 16 and 18 now and the White Sewnatra would be a great help!

    After almost 15 years of marriage, my husband left me and my son. We couldn’t afford to stay in the house we were in and had to relocate to a much smaller house. I lost my sewing room due to the size of our new home. Although my son and I try to share what little space we have, a cabinet like this would help me organize and keep my side of the spare room alot more organized.

    Thank you so much for offering this give away…so generous. The black cabinet would be perfect for my daughter who is going through a nasty divorce. She needs the cabinet to start sewing again for her two little ones. She needs to have this time to take her mind off of everything and just enjoy…kind of like calgon!!Thank you

  91. Mary Says:
    12/18/2012 11:02 am

    My PLAN, like so many others, is to finish as many UFOs as I can this year. This cabinet in white would help a lot! I just moved into my new to me house this past year, and still have to organize my master bedroom/sewing room. In fact, I am going to work on it today! (When I get off the computer.) Thanks so much for offering this prize, as well as all the other bargains you have offered over the years. I can’t resist some of your on sale packages. Thanks again for a great website!

  92. Phyllis S Says:
    12/18/2012 11:03 am

    My goal is to finish all my half made projects before buying more fabric to start another…lets see if that’s going to happen. I would love the cabinet in white or a chance for a gift card. Thank you for the opportunity to win! Merry Christmas

    12/18/2012 11:04 am

    I plan to make my own design of a quilt – an art quilt. Very excited – the idea behind it is my sisters beach house. I’ll show the ocean with boats, dolphins and people surfing, kids playing – the coastline and her house! There is an old church behind her house and a train track – all these things will be incorporated. I want to start NOW!

    My goal for next year is to make an amazing baby quilt for my first grandchild (boy) who is due to arrive in April!!!! We are sooo excited for this newest addition and I want to make him something extra special. I would love the white cabinet. Thanks for such a wonderful give away, the winner will be very blessed.

    12/18/2012 11:06 am

    My husband is making me a sewing room in our basement for a Christmas gift. I would love the white cabinet if I won. It would be the perfect addition to the room. I haven’t had the time in recent years to do quilting and I am so anxious to get back at it. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas

    12/18/2012 11:06 am

    One of my goals after surviving late stage breast cancer was to learn to quilt, and I did! Now I’m hooked. Quilts for my brand new granddaughter (that I thought I’d never get to see) keep me going.
    Thank you so much for offering the beautiful cabinet. I’d love to win it, but am sure it will go to someone that appreciates it if I do not. Merry Christmas!

  98. Debbie Berkebile Says:
    12/18/2012 11:07 am

    I would love to win this cabinet in Black! It would match my other items with my APQS quilting machine. I am going to be working on some fun things for a friend of my daughters. She is an artist who paints and has painted me a mountain scene that I wanted and now I will be quilting her something special so she can frame it for her living room. This would be the perfect cabinet to get me organized for the new year!

  99. Joanne Friedrick Says:
    12/18/2012 11:07 am

    My goal is to make a dent in all the fabric I’ve collected over the past several years. Most of my sewing is for items that we sell at our church fair. It would be great to create something really special this year and that beautiful white cabinet would make the process that much easier by helping me get organized. Thanks for this great offer!

  100. Pat Says:
    12/18/2012 11:08 am

    One of my quilting goals for the new year is to finish my UFOs and WIPs and to use my stash. I have been making some progress in this goal this year and have more to do. I have recently been able set up a new sewing room in my empty nest and a new sewing cabinet would be very helpful. I like white Sewnatra cabinet as my room is small and I have painted it white and bright. Thanks for the chance to win … :) Pat

    12/18/2012 11:09 am

    After many years of not finishing projects because I was too busy, I found quilting again. My serger sits on a t.v.tray (unstable you say?), and my sewing machine is on my kitchen table. I have room enough in my bedroom for a cabinet. This would solve myriad problems! I love to make quilts and give them to folks who need a little comfort in their lives. My goal is to do more of this, and it sure would be easier with a centralized sewing place! Merry Christmas!

  102. Diana Diana Says:
    12/18/2012 11:11 am

    My biggest goal is to just get up to the sewing room & quilt!! That’s because I have so many projects I want to work on: big kid quilts for my grands, Christmas quilts for my 3 kids & spouses, a wedding table topper for a niece’s wedding in October, a sailboat retirement quilt for my husband for November. I could go on & on. So the goal is: Just do it!

  103. ginger Says:
    12/18/2012 11:12 am

    I have two big goals for this year. The first is to finish a queen sized Log Cabin quilt I’ve been working on for my Mom for what seems like forever. The second is why I’d really love to win the sewing cabinet in white – I want to get my sewing room organized! And I think the cabinet will really help.

  104. Connie Stein Says:
    12/18/2012 11:12 am

  107. Carol Ann Hinton Says:

    Thank you for the chance to win this cabinet. My choice is white. I am new at quilting and my goal is to continue learning wonderful techniques of quilting from wonderful quilters and to finish some projects I have going right now for family and friends. This cabinet would make it all a lot easier. Thanks again

  109. Diane Sanders Says:
    12/18/2012 11:16 am

    I love the way the cabinet looks when it is closed and would be a wonderful place to quilt and keep my quilting things organized. My “craft” room has been given to my granddaughter for her bedroom and the white cabinet would help me find a home for some of my quilting things.

  110. Mary S Says:
    12/18/2012 11:21 am

    My biggest goal is to make the gifts for family that have been waiting in the wings for several years. White would be my choice since my stash is in a white cabinet and needs a companion.

  111. Ellen Auerbach Says:
    12/18/2012 11:23 am

    I am working with my daughter, 13, over Christmas break to show her how to piece together all her strip-piecing blocks that she learned how to make over the summer. She is a budding sewer. This cabinet in white would be a wonderful enhancement to the sewing area to accommodate the both of us.

    12/18/2012 11:25 am

    I’d love to win this beautiful sewing cabinet in white to give to my daughter who definately needs help in organizing her sewing/quilting supplies. My goal, like others for the coming year, is to finish all my UFOs especially the baby quilt for our new grandchild due in February & the family tree wall hanging project I bought from you earlier this year.

    12/18/2012 11:27 am

    We all need more space and this cabinet looks wonderful. Nice way to organize and have items at our reach.This past year I have become more interested in making pillow cases and quilts for charitable organizations. A local quilt shop donated to the Barbara Bush cancer center in Maine. If I win this cabinet I would like to find a center who could use it . A place where girls or boys would get enjoyment using it and seeing them create something.
    The past events make us think even more how fortunate we are. Our prayers are with Newtown CT.

  116. Becky Rehwalt Says:
    12/18/2012 11:27 am

    This cabinet would be a great addition to my sewing space and it would help me reach one of my goals for the new year…to get my sewing area organized! I would love to win this cabinet and would prefer the white finish.

    Oh, my such a delightful gift from Connecting Threads! Thanks for this opportunity to win- I just love the white cabinet. Goals for 2013 are to work on several quilt kits from CT’s and also to make a jack-o-lantern table runner as well as try my hand at the Christmas Ornament bargello table runner. Thank you.

    12/18/2012 11:27 am

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to challenge myself to tackle something with a little more difficulty than I have done in the past. The white Sewnatra cabinet by Arrow would be a great tool to keep me organized and have all of my supplies in one location! Thanks for this giveaway!

  119. Diana Jacobs Says:
    12/18/2012 11:28 am

    I live in a 12′ wide mobile home… not much room for my own space for sewning… would love to win a cabinet to call my “quilting space”… white would be my color of choice… but either color would be wonderful… Thanks for your time… and Merry Christmas… Have a Wonderful New Year!!!

  120. Catherine Myer Says:
    12/18/2012 11:28 am

    My goal for 2013 is to learn new quilting skills like free motions quilting. I want to be able to take my quilts all the way from start to finish. I will be be expanding my quilting skills. I would love the black cabinet. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. Merry Christmas!

  121. Doreen Huston Says:
    12/18/2012 11:29 am

    I would love to win a white cabinet but because I am in Canada I guess I would prefer my gift certificates in white. I am really hoping to just be able to get into my quilting big time in 2013 as my husband is finally re-re-retiring at the end of January so we won’t be under such a tight schedule to do other things. Wish me luck! Doreen

  122. Cindy Radtke Says:
    12/18/2012 11:29 am

    If I am so fortunate as to win this beautiful cabinet, I would love to have it in white! As for my sewing goals for the new year. I have quite a few quilt tops to get quilted, some UFO’s to finish up so they can be quilted as well. Then to send them all off to find new homes with someone who needs a warm quilt to snuggle in. Most of my finished quilts go to a charity of one kind or another. If I can help one person feel loved and stay warm in the process, then I have accomplished my goal. Thank you CT for another great give away. You are an awesome company

    So my top priority is to finish my son’s quilt that i had started and gave to him partially finished for his graduation present 3 years ago, i have actually pulled it out of the closet and started sewing some of the squares so i have given myself until the end of February to finish this project because my youngest son is graduating in June 2013 and his comment to me was well mom do i have to wait till Parker graduates (who is actually a Senior) boy did I feel terrible so it will get done in time no matter what!!! I need to get organized and finish one project before i start the next. This cabinet would really help the situation and i have white other little wooded shelving that i have purchased so I would like the white finish PLEASE. Thank you and Merry Christmas to all!!!:)

    Now that I am once again a stay at home home I plan to use the spare time to catch up on all my creative hobbies. Quilting is like painting with material. It is unique and beautiful and each finished project becomes a stand alone heirloom. A white cabinet would give me space to stay organised while I create memories for my three beautiful daughters. I am particularly excited to attempt transferring photographs onto material and incorporate real memories into each design

  126. Marilyn Edmunds Says:
    12/18/2012 11:34 am

    I have collected fabric for sewing for many years. 2013 is the year when I retire and move to be closer to my Grandchildren. I am so excited about all the wonderful things that I want to sew and share that I can hardly wait to get up I the morning. In my new home I am going to have a sewing room so I can spread out my current project. I hope to get all my little grandkids excited about learning to sew also so they can make beautiful things for others.

  127. Mary Eason Says:
    12/18/2012 11:35 am

    As usual, my goal for next year is to finish all those UFO’s that I have sitting around as well as make the Christmas gifts that I planned to give this year, but didn’t get started on time! The cabinet is lovely in both colors, but white probably fits best in my home. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  128. Dori M. Says:
    12/18/2012 11:35 am

    I would like to finish all UFOs that have been put away for years. I don’t have a cabinet that my machine sits on so I have to set it up everytime I have to use it which accounts for alot of UFOs. I would love to have the cabinet in black. Thank you

  132. Maria Says:
    12/18/2012 11:38 am

    My goal is to organize my sewing “stuff” and then to take one unfinished project at a time and decide to finish, toss, or donate. Either finish is fine with me but the black is my favorite. Thanks for all the great and quality supplies from Connecting threads.

  133. Catherine Myer Says:
    12/18/2012 11:39 am

    My goal for 2013 is to learn to free motion guilt, so I can finish my quilts. I want to take some quilt classes to expand my skills. I would like the black cabinet if I win. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Merry Christmas!

    12/18/2012 11:40 am

    I want to start a project that I have had on the drawing board for sometime–the Easter vestments for Church. The largest will be the Altar super frontal, and hangings, then the clergy chasuble and stole, and the burse and veil. This project will take awhile so I want to do a little every day so that it can be accomplished in time for Easter day.

  135. Bev Robie Says:

    My first project in 2013 will be to complete a quilt for my nephew and his fiancee who are getting married June 22nd.

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to finish up some UFOs. And to do that, I need to be able to locate them and the missing parts that go with them! So organizing first is a must…a gorgeous white Sewnatra would do wonders to help me with that!

  137. Judy Says:
    12/18/2012 11:43 am

    My goal is to finish quilting any thing that is unfinished by the end of the year and start projects with some of the new fabric I have purchased recently. This sewing cabinet would be fabulous to win in black or white. My cutting table and shelves in my sewing room are all white so the contrast of a black sewing cabinet might be nice.

  138. Carolyn Says:
    12/18/2012 11:44 am

    My goal for 2013 is to make a twin size quilt. I’m a beginner quilter in my old age and am loving the learning process for making quilts. I’d love the Sewnatra cabinet to store all the goodies that I’ve already acquired while learning to quilt.

  139. Phyllis Jacobs Says:
    12/18/2012 11:44 am

    I’ve been quilting for about 20 years and have a number of finished tops that need to be quilted. My goal for the new year is to make that pile smaller. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this fantastic give away.

  140. Cathy Bremer Says:
    12/18/2012 11:45 am

    My goal is to make 3 quilts each year for someone who doesn’t want it, but needs it. I just finished one for a family that when I heard about them felt inspired to make them a quilt. It felt great to focus on someone I haven’t even met and do a random act of kindness for a person who didn’t expect it. I’m looking forward to January and getting started on my goal and having a compact cabinet would be very helpful in my limited sewing space.

  144. Diana Nelson Says:
    12/18/2012 11:47 am

    My goal for 2013, is to create and make my own quilt. From the design to the quilting. I will need the full 12 months to succeed!!! I will even named it Connecting Threads!!!!! White would be my preference for the cabinet.

  146. Jane Says:
    12/18/2012 11:47 am

    I love to quilt and my grandkids, all eight of them have made things with me for their teachers and friends. One of the last projects was a quilt for their new cousins
    so each one of them, ( I did have the youngest (3) sitting on my knee for this) made a square out of scraps that I had cut up for them and then when they each made a square, some of them made more than one, I put their name on their square, then framed the squares and finished it into this beautiful quilt that they are presenting to their newest cousin soon. No wonder nana cannot finish a lot of her things because the kids loved to get in there with me and made some neat little gifts.

  147. Sandi Miller Says:
    12/18/2012 11:48 am

    I have too many projects waiting for me and in 2013 my goal is to complete more than I start. I retired from a non profit/all volunteer org. putting on an annual quilt show(after 18 yrs) to be able to have more time to acutally participate in the hobby-art-passion of quilting.

  148. Sheryl C. Says:
    12/18/2012 11:48 am

    My goal for 2013 would be to utilize all the fabric that I have to create wonderful quilts to share. Seeing the faces of recipients is one of the best parts of Quilting. A white Sewnatra would be a great new addition to the sewing room.
    Thanks for your generosity for 2013

  149. Karen Corbett Says:
    12/18/2012 11:49 am

    I would like to finish my many UFO’s and be able to share sewing with some friends who do not currently sew. I love to make things to give away, and enjoy working with my sewing guild chapter to make things for charity. I would love the white cabinet if I won. Thanks and blessings to all this Christmas Season.

    My two biggest goals this next year is to finish projects started last year. And number two, make projects for my two new grand babies that were born 11 days apart in November. So many fun baby projects to work on. Now in duplicate!
    I would like the white cabinet.

  152. Jean Denton Says:
    12/18/2012 11:49 am

    I have only been quilting for about 9 months and can already see that my need for storage and organization must be accomplished soon very soon. This is not a hobby I want to push in the corner. My work whether beginner or advance will live on forever and will be treasured by my family. I know because I have treasurers in my closet from three generations. I would prefer white.

  153. Brenda Berry Says:
    12/18/2012 11:49 am

    12/18/2012 11:49 am

    I just received a longarm quilting machine from my wonderful husband. My goal for 2013 is to learn how to use it and quilt my own first quilt. Maybe my UFO’s will have to wait a little bit longer.

    12/18/2012 11:52 am

    The beautiful sewing cabinet in white would fit perfectly in my sewing room and help me reach my goal of piecing and quilting several baby quilts for our local Pregnancy Support Center. Quilts are given to clients as add incentives to attend parenting classes, etc. to earn items for their newborns.

    12/18/2012 11:52 am

    I too would love to win the cabinent in black. I currently use an old student desk handed down from my daughter. Not much room for my sewing machine and quilting projects. My goal for 2013 is to finish the Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt I am working on and to finish the two hand applique quilts I have started. Soo many cool patterns out there and work just gets in the way!

  158. Cheryl Pasquariello Says:
    12/18/2012 11:53 am

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to learn how to free motion quilt on my home sewing machine. I just went to a trunk show/lecture by a very well known quilt teacher and she said that a good cabinet where your machine sits level with the surface is a must. I would love to have the white Sewnatra cabinet to help me achieve my goal!

    I would love to have a white cabinet like this. Unfortunatly, I can’t afford it. My husband has leukemia, and has been very sick. He has had 42 units of blood since aug. I have to stay with him and need something to do. I love to sew, but have not quilted much. My mother always made the most beautiful quilts, and I would like to follow her footsteps. Thank you so much, I love your fabric.

    Afte a tornado blew my home and quilting studio into the sky and trees,I’ve not gotten my self organised. It seems disjointed with my machine sitting on kindly donated furniture. As an art quilter there a great many odds n ends to “quiltly” organise and this wonderful table would really serve this purpose!

I am in the basement which was formerly their family and I make quilts daily with my sewing machine on a plastic table, no cutting space, no storage area or organisation area for my stash.

    I would love to have this cabinet, it would make my life so much easier while trying to stay organized while doing all of my quilting projects… I need to finish so many tops, and would love to have the cabinet in white… I have quite a few ufo’s to finish, hopefully this would help me to get started…. Merry Christmas… Thanks for the opportunity to win a cabinet…

    I need to reorganize my sewing room so I can get back to quilting and sewing again. My sewing room is very small and I have an old desk that I use as a sewing table. I have stacks of fabric that need to be organized into the cupboard. It gets worse at this time of year as I stash Christmas presents into the room and make it off limits to the rest of the family. A new sewing table would just help me get started!

  173. Lee Ann Marsh Says:
    12/18/2012 12:04 pm

    My resolution for 2013 is to organize my sewing room. It is a very small space and is cluttered. My sewing machine is on a computer desk with my embroidery machine behind me on another L shaped desk, also piles all around me of material and threads. This would help contain my.

    My 2013 personal challenge is to become a ‘Fibro Artist’. I have Fibromyalgia, which severly limits my ability to quilt. I want to make a quilt(s) that in some way is a tribute to those of us who suffer with chronic pain and have to find work-arounds to continue to enjoy our love of quilting. My sewing space itself is a challenge this year, because my son-in-law got hit by the resession, losing everything. I now have their family of 6 living with me. I moved into my basement to make room. The white Sewnatra cabinet would be a big help towards making my tiny space more user-friendly. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I love the look of this sewing cabinet. I’ve moved to a smaller space and have no room for a large sewing table–this one is just the right size! I haven’t been working on any projects due to the space constraints for a large folding table. I would like to get back into my quilting–finish all UFO in 2013 so that I can tackle some of the newer projects available. This cabinet would fit perfectly and give me the space to work on the UFO. I love the black cabinet. Thank you for this opportunity! Happy holidays to all!

I have so many other plans to create quilts for both of my wonderful daughters and gifts for loved ones in my family. I am currently teaching my self to free motion quilt on my home machine and am excited to try my new skill this coming year! This cabinet would be wonderful as right now my sewing room is my dining room as well! It would be wonderful to have a white cabinet to leave my sewing machine in all the time instead of having to put it away every evening when I am done with it so we can eat off of our table.

    First off, happiest of holidays to all.
    I would love the cabinet to start to build a new sewing studio. With that for a starters, I can add to it with other pieces until I get a space I could really enjoy. I spend many hours at my machine and would love it that much more with “real” sewing funiture.

I want to finish the baby quilt for my soon to be niece (who will be born in January!). And to finish the quilt for our bed that I started before we moved from Ohio to NY that my husband has been waiting on for almost a year now. As well as finish my other UFOs.

  225. Judy Says:
    12/18/2012 12:27 pm

    I would prefer the white sewing cabinet. My goal for 2013 is to put together and finish 3 baby quilts for 3 new grandbabies. My current sewing “room” is our spare bedroom, my current workspace is an old student desk. When the grandbabies are with us, everything must be put away – no leaving scissors, pins, rotary cutters, sewing machines etc out. I would love to be have one place to put everything.

  226. Rachel Says:
    12/18/2012 12:27 pm

    I would love to share my love of quilting with someone who perhaps cannot afford a nice sewing cabinet or has no room for something larger. I have nieces who would love this and if I won it I would love to be able to start their sewing area/room out with such a lovely piece of furniture. White would of course be something that hopefully anyone would be able to fit into their decor. Thank you for this opportunity to share such a wonderful gift.

    I think white would look better in the dining room I use to sew in. I am 79 and would love to have a nice sewing area while I still can.I have a sign in my car that says I have the most fabric and I’m not going to die till I sew it all. I’ll need to live forever to do that. I have made children’s clothing in the past and am now in a Quilt Guild which donates to emergency situations. Corrently we’re working at getting over 29 quilts together for victims of a large fire a couple of weeks ago. We have given out approximately 100 quilts this year.

    I would just love to win this cabinet in white. I have several projects for the coming year. One is a southwest queen size quilt for my own bed. The other is a fiber arts wall hanging put behind a glass window with six panels. I’ve got some of it done already and it should be fun.

  239. Cathy Underwood Says:
    12/18/2012 12:34 pm

    I would love to have a real sewing area. I sew quite a bit doing lots of quilts and sewing that I donate. I use a fold up table in my sewing room now and it isn’t the best for height and ergonomic reasons. After a while I just feel a bit sore. But I love to sew so until I can win or afford one I will just make due. A Girls gotta have a dream…. ;-)

    Our daughter has breast cancer and is just completing her Chemo and surgery. It was her wish to get a sewing machine and her husband has done that for Christmas. They have a small home and this cabinet is perfect for her so she can sew the things she has always wanted to sew. This would bring a huge smile to her face and we need to see that smile back. Thank you for the opportunity. What a great give-away!

    I have been struggling with a portable sewing machine for six years that my children purchased for me at Christmas. I have never had a proper place to put it and certainly could use the white cabinet. I love the Connecting Threads fabrics. They have such lovely combinations for quilting. Keep up the good choices for us. My goal this coming year is to learn how to hand quilt so I can finish two Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilts my Mother started in about 1935.

    I want to have less of a mess and more room to spread out the quilts’ parts. This means I have to put away all my new CT fabric in color order or by season. It is also very hard for me to stop sewing long enough to clean the space, my longarm quilting sewing room, not the family room. May I also finish the ten tops wanting to be quilted. Now the white cabinet would also answer my mother’s dream to have cabinet for her new sewing machine.

    I am trying to get back into sewing, and learning how to quilt,now that I’m an empty nester, and supposedly have more time on my hands. I usually sew on my dining room table, and would love to be able to have a white cabinet just for sewing. I think it would encourage me to sew as it would make things easier!

  247. Carole Jensen Says:

    I would love the white cabinet. My plans for the coming year are to make a queen size quilt for our bed as well as some blankets for nieces and nephews for Christmas next year. I would love to be able to put my sewing machine ina cabinet like this. Then I wouldn’t have to worry about moving it off the dining room table when we need to use it.

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to complete a queen-sized quilt for my mother (all hexagons) that I have promised her for years now. My husband and I recently moved to our first home and would LOVE to be able to place the lovely black Sewnatra cabinet in my guest bedroom. I have never had space for a sewing area and was always slowed down by setting up and dismantling my quilting projects from the kitchen table each night after dinner. With the designated space I now have upstairs and the whimsical space-saving Sewnatra cabinet, I could finish my mother’s sage-green and white hexagon quilt in no time (without interruption)!

    I am new to sewing. My goal for 2013 is to make and organize a dedicated sewing area (hopefully room…. not area) at my house and start my first bed size quilt. Organization is essential to sewing and the Black cabinet would help me so much.

  253. Annette Johnson Says:

    I would love to have a real sewing area. I sew quite a bit doing lots of quilts and sewing that I donate. I use a fold up table in my sewing room now and it isn’t the best for height and ergonomic reasons. After a while I just feel a bit sore. But I love to sew so until I can win or afford one I will just make due. A Girls gotta have a dream…. ;-) I almost forgot. I would not mind either color but would prefer a white cabinet.

    I have no place to set my sewing machine up & leave it, so …I guess my goal for the new year would be to make myself a sewing corner SOMEWHERE, where I can set up my machine & LEAVE it. Perhaps I’ll finish some of my many UFO’s. A beautiful cabinet like this one in WHITE would certainly help me to achieve my goals.

This has been a long time goal in the making and there just a few individuals that still need one. In 2013 all of my loved ones will have a homemade quilt!

    First I want to say your. Rock! I love your fabric and kits! I set my 2013 goal ithanksgiving and have a start on it. I have many UFO that only need binding sewn on others quilted. Then about a dozen started quilts. I actually finished 3 UFO in the past 2 weeks (thus early start) f2 for Christmas gifts one for charity Christmas. My goal is to turn as many of these UFO into finished quilts. This way I have room to start my 14 year old hopefully on her new passion. She wants to make a quilt! This cute little cabinet in BLACK would give her a work station as my sway back table isn’t fit for two machines. Merry Christmas!

    My friend, who lost her mother, has been in a funk. She was never interested in quilting, and I took her to a retreat. I started her on a simple zig-zag quilt for her grandson. She is hooked, and now knows the meaning of “fat quarters” and “rotary cutters”. It has helped us work through grief we both have, spending time together and having a fun outcome. I would give her the white one.

  283. Ellen Chase Says:
    12/18/2012 12:48 pm

    Which comes first? starting too many quilts or buying more fabric than I can use in anyone’s lifetime? The white cabinet would be a wonderful addition to hold some useful
    sewing items and for a base for my old Singer featherlight.
    I can picture me at the sewing machine cabinet many days next year as I start and finish a quilt all the same year!

    My quilting goal is to learn to quilt using either pantos or the groovy board. Right now, I can only offer free hand quilting on a beginner level.

    My goal for 2013 is to learn all I can about quilting. I am new to quilting and have only made the top part of 3 quilts. I have made 2 quilts for my wonderful 10 year old daughter and 1 for my amazing mother who with out her my life would not be the same not to mention I would not even be here, But she really is my biggest fan. I love you MOM. Ok, Back to quilting and my goal for 2013 I like I said am a new quilter and would like to finish my very first quilt in 2013. I have the best teacher ever my Grandma Mary Cromley and I know with her help and guideance I can acomplish anything in quilting. So I hope to win this cabinet in White so I can grow in my quilting adventure. I have to say I only have the starter stuff and man is it hard to cut blocks and strips with a cutting board that is only 12×18, so this cabinet will be a true blessing for me to win. Thanks have a Merry CHRISTmas!

    12/18/2012 12:50 pm

    This looks like quite a nice sewing cabinet. If I would be lucky enough to win this cabinet, I would give it to my friend. She has her sewing room in the basement of her house and doesn’t have much room for her spools of thread and tools. This would make a great addition to anyones room.

    It would be nice to finally have a permanent place to sew other than our breakfast table or dining room.

    My goal for 2013 is to organize my craft room and to make a list of all the UFO’s that I have and number them in priority. Being a homemaker, a new “Empty Nester” and having my children and grandchildren living far away, I have taken up quilting and sewing as a way to keep me busy. I would love to win the white sewing cabinet as I love how compact it is and would be a perfect sewing station. Thank you and may the Lord bless you in the New Year.

    12/18/2012 12:54 pm

    This is amazing!! I love both colors but the white one would go the best with my home. My goal for 2013 is to finish some of the craft projects I have started. I have started many. I have great intentions in making pillowcases for sick children and finishing lap quilts for HOSPICE. One of the problems is I don’t have a space to keep my work at easy access. This would be perfect, then I could keep my things out until they were done and my kitchen and dinning table would be for eating only. Thank you for the chance and I hope you all have a beautiful holiday!!!!!

    My plans for 2013 is to finish setting up my sewing room and getting a cabinet to put my machine in. I am a person who needs to stay very organized. Now that I am on a fixed income and retired this white cabinet would be very helpful. I would like to get going on making snuggle quilts for those children and adults going through tuff times. I do knit prayer shawls for cancer patients and others who need to keep warm but I would really like to get going on making quilts. I haven’t made many quilts yet but I am very anxious to get going.

    The white cabinet would be a wonderful solution to my down sizing to in law quarters. With the new changes in my life my goal is to work on my UFO quilt tops and for once keep some for myself. One that is a special project is using cloth hankies from loved ones to make a quilt. Some of the hankies are quite old. I also have been involved in doing lap quilts for a local nursing home. I never win anything but may as well try. Thanks for the chance.

    My whole house is a sewing room. I don’t have a sewing cabinet. I put together two 5 ft. long folding tables in the middle of a bedroom. I have my sewing/embroidery machine and my serger and another little work horse of a machine all jammed on them. My cutting table and ironing board are in my living room and I even sometimes drag that old work horse into the kitchen to sew. It sure would be nice to have a tidy little cabinet such as being given away in this contest. Imagine, dream, create. I sew mostly for charities these days, children’s quilts and clothes.

    I would love to win this cabinet. My daughter moved home after college, bringing the many things she accrued while in school. My sewing machine, projects and stuff are strewn around my dining room.

    I was fortunate to inherit quilts from my grand mother but one of them is falling apart. My goal is to locate matching fabrics and remake this quilt. I have a very small work space and this would be a great addition in white.

    Oh how I could use a cabinet like that to go with my current sewing table; it would add on perfectly and finally give me enough room for everything. I recently moved to a smaller house so space is an issue and this would be a good fit. Happy Holidays. This is really a great prize.

    12/18/2012 1:01 pm

    Wow! Now that’s something I could really use. Sharing my sewing room with our guest room means I desperately need places to store all my quilting “stuff.”
    Thank you for offering this wonderful prize.

    I have a made-over bedroom I have kidnapped for ALL my sewing and quilting needs. The unfortunate part about this is my ability to keep things together goes for the most part out the window. A new sewing cabinet would help so much with being able to keep things together. My sewingquilting goal for this new year include finishing up a quilt I started over 25 years ago when my eldest son was still in diapers! It is out of fashion cordoroy that you couldn’t find again until the last few years. I am hoping to pull it all together in time for his birthday in July…wish me luck!

    My goal is to finish all the projects I have started. And I’d love to win this sewing cabinet in white to give to my daughter who also quilts. She doesn’t have a sewing space (uses the dining room table)…..it would make sewing much easier for her.

    I recently found three Pizza boxes with all the blocks,hand appliqued, and borders and sashing all cut out–my goal is to get these set and quilted. I am a hand word person, but, hands giving out, so am setting by machine and quilting some by hand-some by machine. Have seen some patterns to start another pieced quilt–we never outgrow our love of quilting!! If I win this cabinet- I would like in white!

    12/18/2012 1:04 pm

    I’d love to win this cabinet. I’ve been quilting for awhile, but find using a sewing machine on a table is hard to deal with. A large cabinet like this would be great to sew my quilts for my charities.

  326. Bonnie Hometchko Says:

    I will turn 70 in January and hope to keep on the right side of the sod for many years as I have a liftime of ideas for new quilts and a 50+ year stash I work with. Somehow, I always seem to need a “few” new fabrics too – especially love the beautiful batiks. I don’t think I will ever get ahead of the stash! Your thread is absolutely the best I have found. The white cabinet would be great, but hey, would love whatever came my way. A daily quilter, Linda Carlson Enge

    One of my goals for this year is to complete the works-in-progress that have been waiting for me. Two days ago my sweetheart pulled out a lovely sampler that just needs to be bound, and asked why we weren’t using it. When I said it needed binding attached, he asked, “Is that hard?”. No, it’s not–so why have I let that stand between us and a quilt I worked diligently on and then let linger in quilty neverland?
    I would be especially thrilled with a black cabinet. Fingers crossed!

    I would love to receive this cabinet, what a great gift to my daughter for her sewing projects.

    For next year my goal is to make a mariners compass type quilt or one of Linda Hahn’s New York Beauty quilts. And when I make that quilt I will use from my stash (hoard) so as to make room for new fabrics later. If I were to win I would prefer the white cabinet, but I am not picky so either would work.

    I would love to win this table. My husband has to set up an old wooden table, clamp on light so I can see and so on. My thread and notions are in a plastic bag that I hide in the closet. It would be a God send for organization and inspiration to help me finish my baby quilt for my first grandchild that is arriving in 2013. A space to call my own. :) I am sewing one for a little girl and will be doing one for a little boy.

    I do not have a sewing cabinet and use a folding table to set my sewing machine on. I am trying to set up a designated sewing area in my home and a black sewing cabinet would be right up my alley. I really do believe that with the proper equipment, I will be able to complete all the quilts that I am currently dreaming of and any of the unknown others that may come to mind! Thank you for the opportunity to enter to win this cabinet in black.

    One of my many goals is to finish the quilt tops that my 82 yd old Mom is making for all the kids,grandkids and great grandkids. We have 6 finished and only 7 more to go.
    The second goal is my DD is a firefighter and when a firfighter gets hurt on the job,I make them a comfort quilt. I would like to make some and put them aside for when they are needed.
    The third goal is to finish my many UFO’S,finish the quilts for the sick kids,clean out my stash and donate the fabric to the local high school for their projects.

    12/18/2012 1:10 pm

    I will continue working on the quilts I have in various stages of completion. (I won’t call them UFOs because I have actually finished three this year!) A machine cabinet in white would be nice, but I would not sneeze at a gift card either. ;o) Thank you for sponsoring this contest!

  346. Sandra Fisher Says:
    12/18/2012 1:11 pm

    I would love to win a gift card, as I’m not eligible for the cabinet, unless you send it to my daughter in MI! My goal is to finish all the WIPS and maybe get more organized in 2013! The cabinet would help me do that, or it would help my daughter. It would make a lovely surprise gift for her.

  347. Rosemarie Fenelon Says:
    12/18/2012 1:12 pm

    Winning this cabinet would be a dream come true. Now I sew on an old typewriter table! It works out OK but how nice it would be to have that extended space when quilting the quilts I make for Project Linus. Maybe I’ll get to the quilt kits from Connecting threads that are waiting to be sewn. The White would be just perfect. Merry Christmas!

  348. Marissa Kraus Says:
    12/18/2012 1:12 pm

    Winning this cabinet (in white) would help me tremendously sewing on an ergonomically correct placement of my sewing machine and have the proper height for the chair I am using and the legroom it provides. The cabinet storage would help store some of my sewing accessories, too. I would also be more inspired to organize the rest of my sewing and crafting area. Keeping my fingers x’ed for luck in winning.

I have two goals this year, one to make a quilt for myself, and another to teach my great granddaughter to quilt.

    My goal this year is to quilt more with my Mother in law you is 84 years old. I recently rescued her a sewing machine from the Goodwill so we can keep it at my house for when she comes over. To have a white cabnet for the sewing machine that she uses would be wonderful for her. We then would be able to sew in the same room together. Thanks for giving me a chance to win! Peggy

    My goal is rediscover my “love” of quilting. In the last two years I have raced from one project to another trying to met deadlines for other people gifts (New baby, birthday, Christmas, placemats for new apartment, etc.) I plan on a year of easy-does it sewing on projects that I love and want to make on a schedule with not deadlines. The white cabinet is beautiful.

    12/18/2012 1:20 pm

    My one regret,(and goal for this year),is that with all the quilts and table runners and purses that I have given away over the years, I have never finished a quilt for my son. I belong to a quilt group that makes many donation quilts and other projects, but I can’t seem to finish my own. I don’t have a sewing room, so all my projects spill out from an apartment size dining table while my sewing machine is set upon my Grandmother’s old treadle machine, which makes it too tall to sew comfortably. A white sewing cabinet at the right height, and to store all my utensils would be delightful!

  369. Susan Reeder Says:
    12/18/2012 1:20 pm

    My 2013 goal is to finish my UFOs! Of course, that was my goal last year as well, but I can’t seem to resisit starting new projects as well… I recently started free-motion quilting, and would like use it more to quilt my finished projects as well. I would love to win the white cabinet to give to my grand-daughter, who I am teaching how to sew.

    What an amazing giveaway! If I won I’d give the white cabinet to my daughter Bea who is turning 7 in January. She wanted her own sewing machine for Christmas, which Santa happily will be delivering! She spends so much time sewing with me that it was time she got her own. My sewing goal for 2013 is to just keep on sewing as much as I can!

    12/18/2012 1:24 pm

    I just recently completed my first quilting class and I created a lap quilt, complete with pillow case and matching stuffed rooster. I will be giving it to my oldest granddaughter for Christmas. My younger granddaughter and her brother saw me working on the quilt and wanted to know who it was for. So I purchased material enough for a quilt for each of them, as well. That’s my goal…to complete those two quilts, complete with pillow cases and stuffed animals to match to use as gifts for them next year. Seems like a plan I could complete but having that lovely (my preference would be the white finish) cabinet to organize and store my material and notions in would surely help. I wouldn’t be tripping over boxes as I do now!

    My goal for 2014 is make a big dent in my stash! I tried to do that last year, and it doesn’t show! People keep giving me fabric to make quilts for them, so my stash just sits there glaring at me. This year, I hope NO ONE asks me to make them a quilt, even though I love doing it.

    Sewing is so much easier when you are organized and white keeps a small space looking larger. I have spent the past year keeping the donation quilts stocked for our guild as the leader has been receiving chemo and treatment for cancer. I am looking forward to getting back to my own design work in quilts that were set aside for the year.

    Hello and Merry Christmas. The project I would most like to finish this year is to complete a quilt using the crazy quilt squares that my mother had done. i have done the calculations and if I add a big enough border, there are enough squares to complete two quilts, one for each of my children. My youngest, a daughter has married an american soldier who left for Afganastan the week after they married. there was no time for a reception and my goal is to finish a quilt for them by the time he comes home and we have a reception for them in Canada. I am not eligable for the cabinet, but if I was, it would be white.
    Thanks

    I love this, it is perfect as a nigh stand/table in the guest room where my daughter stays to spend the day quilting with me. She often complains of the “bother” to put up a folding table and move everything around so we can sit together in the room and share a day, priceless to both of us. This would help in a too small space, as it would not be in the way with other visitors, quickly converting back to a table next to the bed if need be. I really would find this such a great addition for us both. And, when she gets a bigger place, I could send it with her to encourage her own quilting, and then I visit her and the tables would be switched so to speak!

    I have been a scrapbooker for years – I have put my cricut on the shelf and am learning to sew! I am so excited about sewing and my addiction to cute fabric is a little out of control! I have made 2 quilts so far, nothing fancy. My goal for this year is to learn how to make some of the deliciously wonderful quilts I am seeing on blogs/internet.
    If I were to win, I’d like the white cabinet. I have converted my garage into a sewing/craft room and I know exactly where it will fit!

    My mom made quilts for all of her grandkids and set the example for me to follow. I have seven grandchildren, and two of the quilts are finished. My goal for 2013 is to finish the next five Whew! I’ll surely have callouses by then…but they will be evidence that I made them all!!!

    My goal for quilting this next year is to make a quilt where I choose the fabric and put it all together and also make the Connecting Threads kit that I have sitting on my shelf. It’s an autumn quilt so I have some time to do that. Thanks for the opportunity to win a prize. White would be my color.

    My goal for 2013 is to keep using up my stash so that I can start a whole new one. I just finished my third scrappy quilt so all my “little scraps” are used up (for now) and the quilts have gone out to where they belong. I would love that cabinet in white to keep my sewing room organized and neat. Quilting is my passion and I don’t see an end in sight.

  406. Peggy Moran Says:

    My goal for 2013 is to finish the quilt I started and to continue with other quilts I have planned. My grandmother quilted for all of us and I want to continue the tradition for the next generation. I would love the sewing cabinet in black. It would make an awesome addition to my living room which is where I sew.

    I would love to win this cabinet. In 2011 the entire first floor of my house was destroyed in the tornadoes that devastated the south. I was fortunate in that no one in my family was killed. However, my sewing room was on the first floor and I lost everything. I would love a sewing cabinet in white. I used to quilt every day, now I don’t have a space. I set up a hand-me-down machine on our kitchen table when I can, but I can’t leave projects up, I have to feed the family! A nice white cabinet would really be appreciated. Thank you for all that you do for us all year!

    This year I have been through breast cancer surgery and chemo plus then I tore my rotator cuff so I could not pick up my machine toput it on the table to sew. I am hoping to be able to sew in the new year as soon as my doctors tell me I can lift my machine.

    My goal in 2013 is to give both my sewing machine and serger a home of their own, so I don’t have to take one machine off the little desk I use and put up the other! I would love this cabinet in white, as I like light, breezy furniture that makes my small apartment appear so much larger than it actually is.

    My quilting goals include making one charity quilt per month, finishing up one UFO per month and getting my scraps organized. I also hope to start several new projects!

    12/18/2012 1:53 pm

    First goal of 2013: clean my sewing room! I use Grandma’s very old sewing machine cabinet that was retro-fitted to accommodate one of my machines. The treadle doesn’t “do” anything, but it’s fun to rock it back and forth while deep into handwork or just thinking of Grandma. Grandkids like it, too! The setup works well, but my other machine would look fabulous in a white Sewnatra cabinet! Merry Christmas, Connecting Threads!

    My goal for 2013 is to make as many quilts as I can for cancer patients in our community. I also have a couple of grandchildren who could use new quilts since they have grown quite tall. Quilt a few of my quilts will be made from scraps that I have accumulated over the past couple of years. The white cabinet would be just perfect for me to pull out at anytime to work on one of my quilts.

One each has been made for my mother, sister, two nieces and finally the last one for my son (I’m getting the one I made for my mother which I gave to her on her 90th birthday).

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to finish converting my second bedroom into my sewing room. It would be nice to have a room where I can leave my projects out and not worry about “cleaning up” daily so I can use the dining room table for its original purpose…to EAT at and NOT a storage or sewing area. I especially like the white cabinet and it would be a dandy for organizing my new sewing room.

    12/18/2012 2:00 pm

    One of my goals for the new year is to finish all the projects I have started, including the Connecting Threads kits I already have. I also want to make some quilts in the new modern style and make use of the fabric I have been collecting. I love to recycle and make something old new again. I plan to make some more art quilts, and the white cabinet would fit perfectly in my sunroom, which is also my sewing room.

  458. Catherine Says:
    12/18/2012 2:00 pm

    I would love to win this cabinet. Recently we had to move away from our family and friends and come to the Midwest. Since that move, I have been into a deep depresstion. We had to sell most of our belongings and one of them was my sewing machine. My husband is going to buy me a new machine, for Christmas, and winning the cabinet would just be the answer to help me get back into life. The black cabinet would be a happy Christmas present to place my new machine in.

    Sure would be nice to have a sewing table like that in black. I really like to sew, but must use my Dinningroom tale to do so. Setting up and then putting everything away, takes so much time, with a table like that, would make sewing fun, not a chore.

    My goal for 2013 is to keep learning to quilt. I would like to win the black cabinet. I do not have as sewing room so I set my machine up in the living room on a table. It would be nice to have a place to keep my machine and supplies in one place.

  467. Lavonne Hansen Says:
    12/18/2012 2:07 pm

    My goal for 2013 is to finish my first quilt. I retired at 69. Spent this year getting a sewing room (one of the bedrooms) set up and my huge stash of fabric organized for quilting. Donated over 200 yards of dressmaking and children’s fabric to charity and just kept the cottons. I would like a cabinet in black and will use it next to my chair in the family room so I can sew and watch TV. My grandma, too, made quilts for every family member and I am going to keep up her tradition.

  468. Kathy K Says:
    12/18/2012 2:09 pm

    My goal is first to not buy anymore fabric until I put a dent in what I already have. I’m doing that by making quilts for a Homeless Shelter out on Long Island NY, where victims of Hurrican Sandy have taken shelter. Most are families that have lost everything so quilts are truly needed and Welcomed. I’m also whipping up Doll Quilts and sending along a doll with it, so the little girls that come in will have something special to hold onto in their time of need. I’d love the Black cabinet because I just purchased a Reproduction Anniversary Singer 160 and boy would it look nice sitting ontop of that cabinet.

    My husband and I share our Victorian home with our daughter and her 3 children. I lost my sewing room in the shuffel. I now set up a table in the living room and make a huge mess.

    The white sewing cabinet would fit nicely in my bedroom or my livingroom. I currently sew with my machine on my ironing board and Im patiently waiting for it to end up on the floor. In the past 3 months, I have pieced and quilted 5 quilts and 6 stockings…all Christmas gifts. My goal for 2013 is to definitely get started sewing the Christmas gifts in January so I dont feel so rushed, and maybe even end up with a few spare items for last minute gifts.

    2013 is going to be a year for me to finish some quilts that have been put on hold and start projects that I just “want ” to do. No rush of deadlines this year. Both cabinets are beautiful but I would prefer one in white.

    What a wonderful Cabinet! White would be the color for me. Goals for 2013 1. To finish the UFO’s. 2. To sew for one hour a day ( wouldn’t that be wonderful ).

    My biggest goal is to get sewing and finish some of my unfinished projects–UFOs. This cabinet would help me set up my machine downstairs when I only have short amounts of time to sew. Thanks for the opportunity to win this.

    My goal for this year is to complete denim quilts for my five grandchildren. My sewing machine has to share space with our computer and files for our farming business. The compact size of this cabinet would be a real bonus for me in this small room!

    I am just beginning to learn how to quilt. this is my second year and I am getting more confident. However I need more organization and I feel the cabinet would help so much. My sewing room is on the darker side so the white cabinet would help a lot. Thanks for giving such a wonderful prize.

    I recently took a free motion class, so my 2013 goal is practice, practice, practice. I would love to have at least ONE quilt I can say was made completely by me start to finish. The white cabinet would be wonderful. Thank you for great fabric 7 supplies reasonably priced.

    My goal is to help my 93 year old mother finish her two quilts. I have come to be a companion to her these last years of her life and I am teaching her to piece her two quilts together. We have lived over 1500 miles apart before I retired and we are now making memories that will live beyond her lifetime through her quilts.

  490. Judy Flanders Says:
    12/18/2012 2:18 pm

    I would love a white one. I was recently widowed and will be moving into a smaller place and will need to consolodate and reorganize. I also have just gotten back into quilting after 35 years and have just finished a wall hanging and how things have changed in those 35 years!

    My quilting goals for the new year are twofold. First I would like to work on piecing more accurately. Second I want to improve on my quilting Handiquilter.
    I really like the white cabinet.

  492. Sharon Grow Says:
    12/18/2012 2:19 pm

    My husband just made me a quilting room and I’m setting up the sewing ,stash and cutting areas. A white cabinet would be perfect.
    Now that I can sew/quilt without putting everything out of sight when a sewing session is done, I am hoping to actually quilt the quilt tops I have finished.

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to learn at least one new technique … paper piecing is first on my list. I would so love to win this cabinet so I don’t have to use my kitchen table when quilting. Such a pain to have to put everything away and then having to drag it out and get set up all over again before I can start quilting.
    My color preference would be the white Sewnatra.

    My sewing goal in 2013 is to improve my quilting stitches using my domestic sewing machine. Currently, I’m stuck in the ditch – I think you know what I mean.

I love to quilt & do sewing crafts & the white one would fit perfect in family room.

  511. Joyce Lewin Says:
    12/18/2012 2:30 pm

    Goal for the coming year, definitely to finish all the quilt projects I have done in the last few years. I am a “topper” and I need to be a finisher. A quilting cabinet to store my sewing machine and with the ability to make it flush with the top of the cabinet would be fantastic. My choice for cabinet color is white, but either color would be great. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to everyone at Connecting Threads and Arrow Cabinets.

  512. Laura Merrick Says:
    12/18/2012 2:32 pm

    I have two quilting goals for 2013: 1) I have seven quilt tops that I have completed (apparently I’m a topper) and one goal is to acually quilt them so they can be enjoyed by all! 2) I make quilted teddy bears for my grandchildren. I have two bears to make now for the boys who are about 18 months old. And have two more grandbabies coming in 2013 (a girl and a boy)! So my second goal is to catch up on the teddy bears! I’d love the white cabinet!

  513. Trish Abrahamson Says:
    12/18/2012 2:32 pm

    My goal for 2013 is to have a spot for my sewing projects. Right now I have my kitchen table and I am constantly moving things around. More projects would get finished if I had a spot set up for it. I would like to win the cabinet in white. And prove to my husband that I can get my quilting done and in a neat manner. A fresh start to the new year. Merry Christmas!

    My goal is to finish some of the UFO’s I have started. I would like to get at least 5 of them done. One is for my granddaughter which is called Hooterville, another is equalateral triangles using red batiks and candy canes and white snowflake fabrics. My goal to finish this one of corse is next year for christmas. There are many more UFO’S I could mention however it would take pages and pages. I think having the cabinet in white would be beautiful. I wish everyone the best and have a Happy Holiday Season to all!…..and of course Happy Sewing to everyone!

    I would love this cabinet in my sewing room….It would be my excuse to get the Queen Bed moved out… Please Please pick my name… Everything in my sewing room is old and used. It would be great to have something new, I don’t even have a new machine all hand-me-downs.

    12/18/2012 2:33 pm

    My goal for the new year is to finish my quilts – i love piecing and once the top is done i move on to the next
    so i have about 12 tops but no finished quilts. So my goal is to finish at least half before starting on a new one. And i already have a list of new ones to start lol including one for a dear friend who is graduating from college this spring and the quilting center in white would be lovely.

  518. Misty Hundley Says:
    12/18/2012 2:34 pm

    My one main quilting goal for 2013 is to finish a wall hanging I made for my Dad. He is a cat fanatic and I made a quilt top of cats. I’m having a hard time getting it finished up by doing the quilting. Hopefully I can get motivated and get it finished next year. I would like to win the sewing cabinet in white.

    My goal for this coming year is to start and finish a quilt that I can give away to family. I do a lot of charity items, and I’d like to make something for my grandchildren. A white cabinet would be so perfect for my sewing machine that now sits on a kitchen table!

  522. Karleen Says:
    12/18/2012 2:35 pm

    My goal for the upcoming year is to finish at least 6 of the kits I have purchased from Connecting Threads over the years. Although a new white cabinet would be an asset, understandably it could not be shipped to Canada. An entry in the gift card category would be appreciated.

    12/18/2012 2:36 pm

    My quilting goal for the coming year is to make at least two quilts to donate to our local Rescue Squad to be used as fundraisers! I love to quilt and sew and would love to keep my machine handy for sewing if I only have a few minutes! I am a 911 Dispatcher and don’t have lots of extended time to sew, so I have to grab a minute here and a minute there! I love the white cabinet! So pretty!

    12/18/2012 2:37 pm

    I would love to win that cabinet and gift it to my daughter who lives in very small living quarters. She is progressing in her sewing skills and this would make sewing so much more accessible for her. One of my quilting goals is to make a patriotic quilt. I have not yet chosedn a pettern, but I almost never make the same pattern more than once, so I’ll be looking for ideas. Either black or white would be lovely.

    I would like to win the BLACK cabinet for my grand-daughter, Mia so we can work together to complete some of my “in progress projects”. She is following in my footsteps as well as her great-grand-mother’s and aunt’s, as we are all quilters. I helped her make her new baby brother a cozy baby blanket. By the way…..Mia is 6 yrs old.

    I would really love to win this sewing table. I’m a fashion student and it’s so difficult to sew on the kitchen table and cut on the floor. I would love to get this to start off my sewing furniture. I think white would be the best color to get this in. Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  529. Pam Buckner Says:
    12/18/2012 2:40 pm

    My goal for the new year is to continue making baby quilts for babies of good friends, and other friends grandchildren. I also love to make other gifts and will make pillows to match a king sized quilt for my son and daughter-in-law for their wedding last year. I would love the white cabinet as I have no sewing room and currently move my machine and all my sewing stuff from a closet to my dining room space each time I sew. It would fit nicely in my spare guestroom.

  530. gail ficken Says:
    12/18/2012 2:40 pm

    I have a room set up in my attic that is too small, hot in summer and cold in winter. Because I love quilting I moved down to our front porch. All quilters know that means every visitor’s first impression is one of chaos. I would love to win. I am 75, fairly new to quilting and live in a little bungalow. Lady luck be my friend. LOL

  531. Vinae Says:
    12/18/2012 2:40 pm

    My goal is to dig my way out of all the projects that have collected in my sewing room, once I can actually walk in there! Winning a sewing table would be a wonderful help to getting things organized. White would be a wonderful thing. Isn’t interesting how so many of us have the same goal. Good luck making a choice, and thanks for doing all of this.

    My goal for 2013 is to finish my many UFO’s. I need to organize my projects, materials, threads and patterns. I love making quilts and children’s clothes. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter loves everything that I make. I hope to pass my love of sewing on to her. I’d like a white cabinet.

  537. Bonnie Diermeier Says:
    12/18/2012 2:43 pm

    12/18/2012 2:44 pm

    I hand sew my quilt pieces and hand quilt – all by hand – my quilts are truly “handmade” but I want to venture out and start using my sewing machine to quilt. I need a good setup and a white sewing table would really help me.

  539. Bryn Seaberry Says:
    12/18/2012 2:44 pm

    Since my daughter neglected to say that her plans for 2013 are to work on her projects and the table would help, I thought I’d add my aim. I’ve been working on a few quilts which I intend to finish in 2013. I would love to work with her but she’s far away in another state where she now lives. I think a white cabinet would be well suited. Thanks again for this opportunity.

  540. Lynda Morrissette Says:

    I have two goals for 2013. The first is to begin teaching at my local quilt shop. Several people admired a quilt I finally finished this year and asked me to show them how to make it. The other is to make a quilt for Friends for Life, a dog rescue organization, to donate to their booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. The White cabinet would be perfect. Thanks for this opportunity!

    My goal for the new year is to complete setting up my sewing room (built on in 2006), put together the Janome sewing stand, open the new Janome 6600P machine and begin the entire process of learning to make quilts. I have been building my fabric stash for three years now, and a new white cabinet to go into this room would be nice. I’m looking forward to all the new challenges this new full time hobby will bring me.

    12/18/2012 2:47 pm

    Wow! How lucky would I be to win that cabinet! I love black furniture, and a black cabinet would fit nicely with our dining and family room furniture. My husband would be so happy to have the dining table cleaned off, so that we could actually eat at it! I always have several projects going at once. Just finished some baby blankets, and a purse as gifts. I have a batik quilt to finish, and then I want to start a quilt for my hubby. He grew up on a farm, and is always talking about tractors. So I would like to make him a cuddly flannel quilt to use when he is watching TV. Then I would like to make a quilt for my son-in-law. He collects comics, and I already have the fabric for that one. My daughter has been asking for a queen sized quilt. I have new grandchildren to make bibs, toys, and of course – quilts! And so on, and so on!!!

    Quilting is one of my passions. I quilt everyday. My goal is to creatively use the fabrics in my stash. I have many from Connecting Threads. I have 2 grandchildren who just graduated from college and
    ready to begin lives on their own. The white cabinet
    would really “fit their fancy” as they are fabric lovers also and ready to create!

I am making a LOG CABIN as present and have a 12 block from jelly rolls ready to quilt. The cabinet would really be great for my small space. The white would go with my little storage cabinet. I look forward to you catalogs and specials. Thanks for allowing you customers to have a chance on the cabinet.

    I would like to make 12 kids’ quilts to take to Mayo Clinic’s Pediatric Infusion Therapy Unit (kids’ chemo). I take them to Rochester when I go there for my follow-up visits. I would love to add a new cabinet in white to my quilting room to help organize the sewing area better. I’m currently using an old 6 ft table that is a little too high for maximum comfort.

    One of my quilting goals for the new year is to simply quilt, period! With small kids at home, I find that it’s hard to find the time I desire to work on quilts. I’d love to finish three works in progress that are at various phases. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to actually MAKE a quilt! I have gotten the “buy the fabric” part down pat – now I just need to sew one. My first project is to be a biscuit quilt for the grandson expected to apprear around the middle of April, 2013. I would love to have the cabinet in white.

    I would love to win this beautiful cabinet in white. We recently moved to a new home and my goal in 2013 is to get my sewing room organized and finish the projects that I have either started or are waiting to be started before I take on any more. This wonderful cabinet would sure be a help with the organizational goal and be so helpful in getting my many projects finished. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

    My goal is to COMPLETE the projects that I start in 2013 and continue to meet with my quilting friends in Oregon and Washiington and enjoy their fellowship..which I believe is the real reason we quilter’s get together every week or month.

  566. Jo Biagioli Says:
    12/18/2012 3:01 pm

    My goals for this year are to finish the projects that I started over the last couple of years so that I can attend more shows this year, take more classes this year, and then start new projects that I’ll either finish right away or leave in that partially finished state that we all know and love.

  567. Karen Ortman Says:

    My goal for the new year is to continue to teach my grandaughter to sew and hopefully instill in her the love of quilting. She now has her own sewing machine and would love to have a place all of her own when she sits down to sew. She would be thrilled to receive either color of cabinet.

  569. Lora McCabe Says:
    12/18/2012 3:02 pm

    My goal is to immerse myself in quilting about 75% of my time in 2013. Getting the cabinet in white would be a dream come true because I would situate it in the place where I spend 5 days out of the week. I only have a small room there so it would afford me a perfect setup for piecing, piecing and more piecing! Of course, I might need to get more of your batiks (which are gorgeous, BTW), but that is a prize in itself. Thank you for being there for us quilters!

    I am still new at this. I am learning new things as i go along. My Mother and sister quilts and they do a great job, i’m learning how to do flying geese, How to do my binding after its been quilted. I just made my first quilt and sold it. I love quilting, I just started about a year ago, and I sew on a little desk right now and the sewing cabinet would look good in my sewing room. Then i can sew more projects.

    This year my goal is to do more charity sewing for others as well as finish a pile of quilt tops that have piled up in my sewing room . I also wish to start a group to sew caps for cancer patients who have lost their hair due to chemotheraphy. My husband and I split our time between two homes and a cabinet in white would allow me to leave my machine set up at the second house and get more done! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.

A white cabinet would enable me to move my sewing machine off the dining room table which is also my cutting and assembly space. Such a generous offer from an outstanding, customer oriented company! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

    Thank you for your giveaway that will bless the life of one of the enthusiastic quilters on your website. My goal is to get organized (which seems to be a common theme among quilters) and to finish 3 unfinished projects. A place to put things and everything in its place is my theme for 2013.

    At present, my sewing space consists of a donated sewing machine sitting atop a desk in my daughter’s bedroom. We are currently fixing up our basement, where my ‘studio’ will be. All creativity involving quilts will take place here once finished, whether made from fabric or chocolate (see website). Finally after years of raising children, I get to have my own space. The Sewnatra in white would be a perfect addition to this area. Thank you for the opportunity to hope that this could be in my home.

  583. Kimberley Hess Says:
    12/18/2012 3:13 pm

    I am making a resolution to quilt at least 30 minutes every day. Even if I just go in and read a pattern or iron fabric in preparation for cutting. Being in my “quilt cave” is a great stress reliever. A new white Sewnatra cabinet, would be the ideal location to spend that time.
    Happy 2013 everyone! May all your resolutions come true!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this cabinet. I’d like the white one please.
    Getting my quilting stuff organized will be my goal for 2013. Either I’m messy while sewing or I have too much in my tiny space….hm, maybe both.

    My goal for 2013 is to learn a new quilting technique. I fear I have become fairly comfortable and I challange myself to reach out. I make,and donate, quilts to the Dupont Childrens Hospital. I don’t have a lot of room, so this cabinet would be a welcomed gift.

    that is a cute cabinet and would fit in with my future sewing room. I’m planning to convert our home office into my sewing room. My dh is ready to retire and when he does I won’t be the business bookkeeper using this office I’ll be able to create a sewing room. Right now I use a corner of my dining room and I hope to be a much better quilter by having my own room lol

    Oh how I would love to make a quilt for each of my 3 granddaughters. I think it would be so nice to leave them each a quilt that would be something in reference to their personalities. As for what color cabinet, either one would be great, but I guess I would probably pick a white one.

  591. AliceReger Says:
    12/18/2012 3:18 pm

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to make something every month. I have loads of ideas, but just haven’t been putting them into action. With a little granddaughter, I hope to make many fun clothes, toys and cloth books. If possible, I want to make Christmas gifts for everyone on my list next year. Big goals, right? I’d also like to encourage my daughter to start sewing, along with my older granddaughter. Wow! I’d love to have the white cabinet. It would be the first real piece of sewing furniture I’ve ever had.

My grandsons already have quilts, but who knows, I may just break out and make more. I would love a white sewing cabinet. My daughter has just caught the sewing bug, so the next generation will carry on. Love your on-line pages. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

    I would love this sewing table as I currently use my grandmothers sewing cabinet with a board on the place where the machine would go. I set my newer machine on the board. The board has a tendancy to slide, but it is what I am working with today. It would be wonderful to have this sewing cabinet. I guess white would be my color choice. My goal is of course to get projects done next year that I didn’t get to finish this year.

  605. Jackie Staup Says:

    I suffer from depression and it’s been a rough couple of years. I am in the middle of re-purposing an extra bedroom in our 100+ year old farmhouse, so I can have my own space. It’s a struggle to focus everyday… but I do have one quilt in the works using your Sip Of Summer Collection for my Aunt who just turned 83. It’s important that I get it finished for her…
    The sewing cabinet, in white, would sure be God send to me! PS… Love your fabrics! I’ll take one of everything to add to what I already have stored away.

    My first project for the new year 2013 will be for my last grandchild. All the other grandchildren and their parents have a quilt, so I must get this last one done. I would like the white cabinet to go into my newly remodeled sewing room. You see last summer we returned from a vacation to find our basement was flooded and molded. I lost so many quilting magazines, fabric, grandmas homemade quilting frames, etc. that a new sewing cabinet would be magic.

I also want to finish all my UFO’s and try and sell them to get more fabric money LOL. Hope to win but if not all I can say is good luck to everyone.

When I am finished with those projects I will start on quilts for my daughters and daughter in law for the winter months. I would love a cabinet in White Finish.

    I quilt on my diningroom table so it would be wonderful to have such a beautiful cabinet dedicated for my quilting. My goal for this year is not only to complete my UFOs but to donate 5 Quilts of Valor in 2013. I’ve done 3 so far and been able to attend the presentation of one of them to an injured soldier. These men and women do so much for our country and a lap quilt seems like so little for their sacrifice. Though they won’t talk about the experience they are so proud of the recognition of their service. Having the cabinet would give me a place to work on these QoV quilts.
    Merry Christmas to you and the staff and thank you for sponsoring the give away.

    Would love to win the black cabinet for my niece so she can put her machine in it. I then could teach her all about quilting so she could help me finish some of my quilting projects. Right now she has the machine stored in the corner of her basement and we are not able to set it up for her to use.

    I’m a new quilter so I have several goals, one is to complete the projects that I have purchased fabric for, and the other is to sharpen my sewing/quilting skills through practice and new techniques. The white cabinet would be a helpful “tool” to add to my growing arsenal, and would be probably be the most used, next to my seam ripper.

    My 15 year old grandaughter is learning to sew and getting a machine for Christmas. This would be a perfict gift for her in Black as her space is limited.

    My main quilting goal for 2013 is to better organize my sewing space. A Sewnatra cabinet in white would certainly make that task easier. I’d also like to finish at least half of my UFO’s…I like dreamin’!

  647. Maryann Hiser Says:
    12/18/2012 4:02 pm

    What a way to start out 2013, with an organized, pretty cabinet for my machine. Imagine my husband’s surprise if I got the machine out of the living room! What a Christmas present that would be!!!

  648. Kris Says:
    12/18/2012 4:02 pm

    Wow! what a great giveaway! One of my goals to finish up some tops that have been lying around too long – as in put them into one piece. I’ll worry about the quilting and binding later but these UFOs are dragging me down. A black cabinet would be great.

  649. Pat Eakes Says:
    12/18/2012 4:03 pm

    My quilting plan for 2013 is to complete as many unfinished projects as possible. I can not wait to get started. I prefer the white cabinet if I am lucky enough to win.

    12/18/2012 4:05 pm

    Oh I have so many goals!!! I just love to quilt, a hobby my grandmother and mother passed down to me. The white cabinet would certainly organize my stash I have accumulated in the last few years. I have just completed three quilts for my kids and have three left that I will be finishing soon. My #1 goal right now is to do something for me since everything I have ever completed I have given away… Oops, how many times have I repeated that I wonder, lol.

    I plan to finish the fall leaf quilt I have started in 2011 and did not get to finish because my son died and I have worked for a year setling his estate. I also have two tops pieced that I need to quilt. I would like the cabinet in white. It is a good looking sewing cabinet.

    My sewing machine is stored away in my little girls closet. I have no place to leave it out in the open where I can just sit and sew. I would love this in black. If I had a place to keep it out all the time, I would finish her rainbow quilt I been working on for the past year and all my other sewing projects I been dying to do but haven’t had a place to work at.

  656. Alana Kuznia Says:

    One of my quilting goals this next year is finish the quilt for my sister that I have been working on for several years. I finally decided what designs I want to hand quilt it, so now I just need to get it basted and done! Of course, if I were to win that cabinet in black, I could put my best machine quilting machine on it, and get some machine quilting done!

    My goal for 2013 is to finish the quilts that I have started, there are 3 which I have the blocks ready to put together for 3 grandsons, 1 that needs the binding done and one that I need to free motion quilt it together, then bind it. We moved this year and I have not had a place to sew in our new home but my husband is finishing me a room in the barn, of all places, I thought that would be terrible but he is a good carpenter and has put alot of hard work into it and he is painting it now. The white sewing cabinet would look great in it!! I can hardly wait for it to be finished, he should have it done by Christmas, what a wonderfull husband I have!!!

The site of the incident is approximately 5 miles from my home and I go to many of the local businesses there. I would love the sewing cabinet in white. I would bring it to our vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard and leave a machine there year round.

    If I’m blessed enough to win the cabinet I’m giving it to my sister-in-law, Susan. Several years ago Susan opened a whole new world to me when she very patiently taught me how to quilt! Since then I’ve made more quilts than I can count …..my goal this coming year is to make one for my own king size bed! Getting back to Susan, she sews on a folding table and so deserves a permanent home for her sewing machine and I believe she would like the cabinet in white. Also, I purchased the Aussie for my sewing room this past year and absolutely love it, itmakes sewing so much more comfortable for the back….thank you and Merry Christmas!

    First, I just would like to say thank you to Connecting Threads for all that you have offered to us the consumers this year! Your prices are totally amazing too!
    I have decided to make other items than just quilting. I have been a quilter for many years, but now it’s time to maybe make gifts and sell them at craft shows throughout the year of 2013. I have plans for doll clothes, techie covers, pot holders, bowls, tablerunners, hand bags, Christmas items and a whole lot more.
    If I were chosen to win this gorgeous cabinet I would chose to have it in the color white. I have not had a place to put my serger because I don’t have a cabinet for it right now and I have to juggle things around if I want to use it.
    Thanks for letting me enter and to everyone at Connecting Threads, I wish a very Merry Christmas!!

    My goal for 2013 is to finish my 2nd and 3rd quilts ever. I just finished my first one and learned a lot! It was fun and challenging, but came out well. Now I want to improve, use my stash, and make quilts for gifts and for myself. I have lots of ideas, lots of patterns from my Auntie, and lots of quiltless family members. The white cabinet would be a very big help in my sewing room. Thanks.

    I have received a grant to make quilts to be raffled at fundraisers for the insidious and incurable disease “pulmonary arterial hypertension.” My guild has helped piece tops and longarm quilted 12 quilts. My quilting goal for 2013 is to get the bindings on all of these quilts and get them mailed to the funraising coordinator by the end of April. I love the nice clean look of the white cabinet.

    Well, my grandmother was a quilter; mostly by hand but in her later years she started using her machine. I always told her that I wanted to quilt as she did but I just didn’t have the equipment to do so. She has been gone for seven years now . . . I am blessed to have a quilting machine but nowhere to put it but on my kitchen table. My 2013 goal is to honor my grandma by making my very first quilt. The white table would be my choice. Thanks.

I would love to win the cabinet, not for myself, but for my daughter-in-law who this past year purchased a machine not only to learn quilting but to make items for gifts i.e., children’s backpacks, purses, christmas ornaments, etc. She uses a desk for her machine which is nice but deserves a quilting machine cabinet.

    What a nice cabinet! I would love to win a white one. My biggest quilting goal for 2013 is to really practice my free-motion quilting – it doesn’t come naturally to me, so I usually avoid it, but I love the look, so I want to get better.

  705. Diane McNeil Says:
    12/18/2012 4:37 pm

    My main goal is to finish the baby quilt I started for my first grandchild, which my arthritis has always seemed to interfere with. My precious granddaughter will be 2 this year, so time’s a wastin’, and she’ll have a little brother soon. My biggest quilting goal is to finish this quilt for her despite the pain and deformation in my hands, so I can make one for her brother. I suppose a white finish would be nice, it would match all my fabric.

    My goal is to take back my sewing room and finish up some tops that need quilting/binding. It’s hard to share a room when you have soooooo much fabric, kits and tools…I’m sure my grandson will understand. I will keep a wall for him and his bed when he comes to visit..lol.

    I have only been quilting for a few years but have accumulated a large number of UFO’s. My husband has worked hard to clear a room for me to use as a sewing room, but I currently take over the kitchen table to sew. Sewing is therapy for me, I can sit and sew and all my worries fade away for a while. My goal for 2013 is to finish some of my UFO’s, design and finish a Quilt of Valor, and conquer my fear of a “scrappy” quilt from my stash. With having to set up in the kitchen, sometimes the time and effort to set up to sew is not worth the amount of time I would be able to actually sew. Having a cabinet for my room that is always ready to go would truly be a blessing. Good luck everyone!!

  713. Sharon Nuhfer Says:
    12/18/2012 4:41 pm

    My goal for 2013 is to be totally organized! Currently, when I want to sew, I have to put my machine on my kitchen table and try to locate all my sewing supplies throughout the house. This definitely hampers my desire to quilt! I would love to win this cabinet in black as it would look so nice in my future sewing room!!

  714. Bernice Martin Says:
    12/18/2012 4:41 pm

    I have wanted a cabinet like this for a long time. It would give me room to store my machine and organize my thread and other supplies for my machine. This would give me more room to do my work. Would love the white cabinet but would take either.

    Life in 2012 was busy with family activities, family visits, and 2 quilt shows I was actively involved in. That meant actual sewing time was probably the least in a number of years. So in 2013, I plan to return my sewing time back to normal, completing a few quilt projects that were put on the back burner. The black cabinet would provide a great place to keep my machine ready to go.

    My quilting goal in 2013 is to take time to slow down and enjoy the act of quilting, sewing, cutting, chosing
    projects, finishing others rather than always hurrying to turn out and hand in projects. My new deadlines are
    simply whenever I finish and relish the joy of creating with fabric. I have no prefence for color they both are
    lovely. All the best to fellow sewers & “Merry Christmas”

    I would love to have the white cabinet!!!! Just too cute! I would love to get more quilting done and that would work perfect to have downstairs, so I can hang out with my hubby and still sew. I have 5 quilts to finish, New Years resolution!!!

    If I were to win the white cabinet it would be a place to permanently place my second sewing machine. My 2013 hobby/passion goal is to finish all my UFO’s (UnFinished Objects)…..either by sewing and quilting them myself or give them away to my quiting friends so they can make them…for themselves.

  730. Lynne Meyer Says:
    12/18/2012 4:50 pm

    My quilting goals are to finish up some quilts that I have started, learn how to better incorporate colors using color theory, get better at free motion quilting and continue to make quilted projects for others. Having this new cabinet in white would be a real help in that I live in a very small place and having something this compact would be ideal. Thank you for the chance to enter.

  731. Robin Dufresne Says:

    My goal is to complete turning the second bedroom into my sewing/painting/home office room so I can FINALLY start sewing again! I think I would like the black cabinet for my little Featherweight!

    I have been organizing my quilting area, but still don’t have a good place for my sewing machine. i would love to have the cabinet, it would make it so much easier to work on my quilts. And I like that it is compact and can be folded up to take even less space. In our small house that would be a plus.

    My goal for 2013 is to quilt at least one half of my quilt tops so next Christmas I can deliver a good number of them to the Veterans home. I get great joy in giving their life a little color. If I was ever lucky enough to win I would love the white cabinet.

    I am learning to free motion quilt and the sewing cabinet I have is inadequate making it a challenge….I would love to win the cabinet in any color….I have the cutting table in white.

    Well, one of my goals for 2013, is to make over my seeing room so it is more efficient. I think I should probably get rid of some stuff. A new white sewing table would sure look great. By the way , I love your essentials thread.

  741. Jennifer Says:

    If I were to win the cabinet (I love the white!) it would help with my goal of finally getting all my sewing and quilting stuff organized! I do not have drawers in my current sewing table, so having a place to put some of the accessories would be great. It would also help with my other goal of quilting all the quilt tops I’ve made and put away!

  742. Kathleen Bumb Says:
    12/18/2012 5:01 pm

    I would love to win the white sewing cabinet, because, as of now, I use my bed to sort out and put together my sewing projects and altered art work. The cabinet would help out so greatly. Thank you for this great giveaway, and have a wonderful holiday season!!!!!

    My husband has been working on a new sewing room in our basement for the past few months. It’s getting there. I currently have my quilting set up in our dining room. I’m so excited to finally have a dedicated area to work in. I don’t have anything for my machine to sit on; currently I work off the dining room table. I would love to win the cabinet in white. That would not only be a very Merry Christmas, but a Happy Birthday for me as well. My birthday is Dec 24th!

    I have had my eye on that white one for some time now and have identified the place where it will rest and call out my name and let me walk through my sewing room without knocking things over. How I would love to get rid of that awful desk I have been using and decrease the clutter.
    My goal….has been for some time now is to complete all those projects I have started. There always seems to be a project in the works that need to be put away to… make that baby shower gift, or the quilt that hubby has been asking for, the wall hanging and quilt for the church Christmas fair, the wall hanging for the town’s 250th fund raiser, the promised mother and mother-in-laws Christmas gifts, daughters 10 year camp t-shirt quilt, the “oh my goodness” I forgot to send you a birthday card so I better make you that candle mat and of course that new class at the local quilting shop that I have just been waiting for….the list goes on and on

  748. Kris Riddle Says:

    My mother was the world’s best seamstress and quilter; and I fortunately inherited her sewing machine when she passed away recently. I can sew, but have never quilted before. My goal for 2013 is to complete a king size quilt for my husband and my bed. I have everything cut out but nowhere to put the sewing machine other than my dining room table. So winning a black Sewnatra cabinet would be awesome to help me accomplish my quilting goal.
    Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all!

  750. Bonita Greer Says:
    12/18/2012 5:08 pm

    I’m getting back into sewing and just started on my first quilt, lots of cutting. I just bought a bunch of tools and supplies needed to make the quilt. My son bought me a sewing machine a couple of years ago, havent even used it yet. Been wanting to make my son a memory quilt of his sister ever since she passed away 12 yrs ago, she was twelve. I know it would mean a lot to him which is why he bought me a sewing machine, he’s been waiting a long time for this quilt. I live in a very small apartment and space is tight. Definetly need something to store the machine and supplies in. More importantly, in light of the precious children and adults that died in Newport, Conn, I couldnt help but reflect on the 4 block quilt I was given in memory of Melissa and plan to make one for each of the families that lost their loved ones. It meant a lot to me to have received a memory quilt, I know it will mean a lot to them! So, if I should win a black sewing cabinet, that would be a blessing but my greatest joy will be to let the families know my heart goes out to them with the deepest and most sincere sorrow! Praying God’s peace and healing be upon them all.

    My goal for 2013 is to make more quilts than I did this year. I want to make a quilt to donate to the MD Anderson Ovarian quilt auction this year. I would love to win a black cabinet. Maybe I could even get my daughter excited about sewing if I had a pretty black cabinet.

  757. Gloria Says:

    My quilting goal for this year is to get organized (this sewing cabinet would certainly help!). Then — my goal is to finish all the UFO’s I’ve found that were hidden away, and start the projects that never even got started. (Of course, that was my goal last year too :)

    My goal for 2013 is to organize all my quilting/sewing supplies so that I can get more done. Having this beautiful while cabinet in my room will make it easier to get set up quickly versus what I currently do. Not only that, it will be a welcome addition to the decor of the room.

    My sewing room is in need of a make-over. Friends already stepped in and helped me with a “fabric intervention”. Now I need to continue the organization of my small multi-purpose room. I am tired of having to move 2 things to get to whatever I need.

    My goal is to move my quilt studio to a larger room that is currently being added to our home, and to complete 12 quilts this year (I have been a ‘topper’ all of 2012 and need to be a ‘quilter’ all of 2013). Anyone able to relate to this ;-)

    I would love to win the white cabinet! I just bought a new sewing machine that doesn’t have a cabinet yet. My top goal for 2013 is to finish I spy and Baby Genius quilts I started for my two 3 year old grandchildren, although the Baby Genius quilts will now go to my two younger grandchildren, aged 7 months and 4 months.

  768. Joan E Robinson Says:
    12/18/2012 5:28 pm

    So many goals for the new year in respect to quilting. But the top one is to work on learning how to do free motion quilting. I’ve signed up for the classes and now all I need is a level sewing area…the cabinet would be perfect. The white one would match all the rest of the storage in my craft room. Thanks for this opportunity!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year:-)

    12/18/2012 5:29 pm

    Just love the white cabinet, I have already got a jump start on my goal in 2013 to turn my spare bedroom into a true quilting room. The cabinet would fit right into my plans. Now off to order more fabric from you!

    12/18/2012 5:32 pm

    One of my unfinished projects is a Nancy Halvorsen “Be Attitudes” quilt which I would like to complete on a new black Sewnatra cabinet. I would then like to begin making rag-edged levi quilts for each of my grandchildren. Having recently reorganized my sewing room, the black cabinet would be a wonderful addition. Thanks for the opportunity and have a wonderful holiday celebration!

    Well first time ever and hopefully last that I say it sucks to be Canadian…only for this contest tho. LOL
    My quilting goal for the new year is to finish my first major project a wedding quilt. I am trying to teach myself how to quilt and my first attempt well lets just say there is definately an advantage to having someone show you then trying to figure out from a book. It’s like manuals for cars those who write them forget to put in the teeny little steps that are second nature to them cuz they seem to think everyone knows them. Anyway that’s what this Canuck is planning. Merry Everything and blessings for whatever you may celebrate this time of year.

  772. Judy Says:
    12/18/2012 5:36 pm

    What a great giveaway:) I would try to put my mini fabric storeroom (haha) in order and this would be great for some organization. My granddaughter calls my sewing room, my room of shame….guess I could use a little help. I hang my head, I’m addicted. Anyway, if I should get the chance to win I would choose the black one. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!

  773. Bonnie Switzer Says:
    12/18/2012 5:36 pm

    I just purchased a used mid arm machine and table. My goal is to learn to use it and finally quilt the many tops I have completed over the past 6 years. If I am fortunate enough to win the cabinet, I would prefer it in white. Thanks bunches.

  774. Anne Connors Says:
    12/18/2012 5:37 pm

    I am retired and love to sew–now I have to be near my husband who has dementia–this compact machine would fit in our living room where he spents much of his time.
    This way I could sew more than in the bedroom–and finish up my quilt and use up the materials that I have stashed over the years from my many projects.
    Happy Holidays—-the white one would be great

    I just bought my 9 year old Granddaughter a sewing machine for Christmas. One of the first projects we will be working on is some simple quilted coasters with fabrics I have in my stash from connecting threads. The cabinet in white would work very well in her bedroom so she always has her sewing space! But then again Grandma could use the black one in the dinning room where she sews! LOL

  785. Diana Grindel Says:
    12/18/2012 5:42 pm

    I would love to have white for my sewing room to finish up all the UFO’s I didn’t get finished for 2012. Along with all the garments I hope to make in 2013 for the grand daughters.

    I have new grandchildren and new great grandchildren all over this country, and I have decided that the teen children at Children’s Hospital in Fresno are not being given the right size snuggle quilt. Soooooooooo, Leave it to Meemaw, this problem needs fixing. Sure would be easier to get them done with a Sewnatra table in my sewing room

    My quilting goal is to make T-shirt quilts for my three children. I have been saving all of my daughter’s ballet T-shirts from Nutcracker performances, and band and sport T-shirts from my sons. I think they would love to have them sewn together in a quilted keepsake. If I start in January, 2013 I should be done by next Christmas, right?! Winning a white sewing cabinet would be awesome! Thank you for the chance!

  796. Julie Says:

    My goal this year is to get the quilt tops that I have already finished quilted and bound. I would be so excited to have some wall hangings/quilts finally around the house where we can enjoy them instead of folded and put away in a to do drawer.

    12/18/2012 5:56 pm

    What a dream-cabinet! My husband is a pretty handy man, so everything in my sewing room is hand-made. Not bad, but a little bit too simple. I would be happy, as everybody here, to have this perle! I know, dreams come true if you really want it! If I don’t win, means somebody else wanted it much more! That’s OK! I will try again!

    My main quilting goal in 2013 is to finish my UFOs! Other than that, I plan to 1)start a New Year’s Day mystery quilt, 2)make and quilt a modern quilt for a friend, 3) make more quilts than in 2012 (as of Dec. I have made 12 quilts–pieced (or appliqued) and quilted by me.) The white Sewnatra cabinet would certainly help me with my goals! Thanks, Connecting Threads for offering this prize!

    12/18/2012 6:03 pm

    I would love this cabinet in white to match my brand new Pfaff sewing machine! I finished a 13 year old UFO this past month and my personal quilting goals the past few years is to get a least one major UFO done. My son is currently deployed with the US Navy in the Middle East and his quilt I started 11 years ago is up next for his homecoming this spring. This would make it so much easier to keep all my tools close by and organized. and it is very nice to look at!

    Bought my 8-year old granddaughter a sewing machine for Christmas, she wants Granny to teach her to sew. The white cabinet would be perfect for her. My goal for the new year is to learn free motion quilting. I’ve only been quilting for two years and haven’t had the patience or time to practice.

    I would love to win the white sewing cabinet, because, I use my kitchen table a lot. I have so many projects that I have started, so my goal is to finish all these projects. Thank you for this great contest, and I wish you at Connecting Threads a Merry Christmas!!

    My sewing goal for next year is to finish at least half of the unfinished projects I have. There are so many truly beautiful items that are just screaming for me to finish them so they can make someone very happy (besides me). I would also like to teach my special needs grand daughter to use the sewing machine. We’ve “talked” about it, 2013 is The Year! I would like the white cabinet, although the black cabinet looks so sleek and expensive. Actually, both are beautiful!

    This year I need to finish my ballet themed quilt for a charity auction. After that it will be ballet costumes for a spring performance and then finally back to my stack of unfinished projects. I would love this cabinet in black.

    Thank you for putting together a great giveaway!
    My goal- make something, or many things, meaningful. This entails a remembrance quilt for loved ones that have passed on, pads & blankets for an animal shelter and a quilt for a cancer benefit auction.

    What a generous offer! My goal this year is to make quilted placemat sets for all of my female relatives as Christmas gifts next year. Also, to complete a queen quilt for my bed with 15 “house” blocks…one for each address at which my family has lived. If I should win the sewing cabinet I would prefer it in white

    My goal for 2013 would be to set up a sewing room. I just got a
    new machine. It needs a home. I would pick black. My room
    has a huge cabinet, good for storing all my stuff. I have been
    wondering where to put the machine. It does need a home.
    The dining room does not need to be a sewing room. Then
    I could start quilt for my bed. It will be out of the way. I could
    leave and come back as needed. The husband would be a
    happier camper!

    I have only been a quilter for 1 year and am totally addicted. I am trying to build my “stash” and really could use a nice cabinet for storage. I have made 5 quilts so far. A University of KY quilt for my son who graduated from UK, one for a very dear friend’s son who is in the seminary in Minnesota, also a UK quilt. A log cabin for my sister who turned 50 in October. A quilt I designed myself for my daughter whom is a 5th grade teacher, specially designed with the help of my quilting buddy Mary Lou. And the 5th one is in honor of my dad who is a Korean war veteran, red, white, and blue of course with his Army pictute in the center which I am giving him for Christmas.

    After the holidays, I will be packing up most of my fabric stash and sewing supplies to ship across the country after my home sells. My goal is to downsize and to spend the rest of my days sewing and quilting near my grandchildren. This cabinet (in white please) would be perfect for my plans. Hopefully, my dreams will come true in 2013!

    I am currently in Australia for Christmas but upon returning home, I have a wonderful sewing space brimming with fabric, ideas and previously started projects waiting for me. My 2013 goal is to become more organized and explore all the techniques of quilting that intrigue me so.
    I do not qualify for the sewing table but know that some one will be very lucky.

  814. Shirley Wagoner Says:
    12/18/2012 6:15 pm

    I live in a 1 bedroom apt and have very limited space. I am currently teaching my granddaughter how to quilt – this compact work space would be so handy to set up and use at every opportunity. The white cabinet is my preferred color. Thank you for this great contest.

    I love that white finish! What a great cabinet! I currently sew on a plastic table that bounces!
    My goals this year…to complete my 3 bed sized UFO’s.
    To finish my Craftsy class on quilting large projects.
    To complete a larger hexie project (I have only done mini quilts with hexagons up until now)
    I would also like to make a few nice purses for myself.
    And lastly I would love to make a quilt out of some of the fabrics I have been saving (hording!)
    I adore your threads!

    Several quilting goals adorn my 2013 resolutions. They include completing an adorable purple/green crib quilt for a special little someone (Brooke Natalie) due the end of January. In addition, I am modifying a quilt pattern to complete a “surprise quilt” for the Best MOM in the World; and last but certainally not least another quilt – just because I like the pattern and rich, vibrant fabrics already waiting on me – LOL!!!
    (My cabinet choice would definitely be black – it would compliment my decor perfectly.)

    I would love to have the white sewing cabinet as shown. I have a Bernina and several vintage Singer machines, but I only have one sewing cabinet.

    For 2013 I will be making a Jewel Box Quilt as a graduation gift for our grandaughter Shannon. I have made over 2300 cancer hats and have given them away. Also several dozen lap robes for our local veterans hospice unit besides all the quilts I have made. I would like my Sewnatra cabinet to be in white. I usually am not a contest winner so here’s hoping! Thank you.

    I went to a quilt class 3 years ago and the day started off wrong with me leaving my power cord at home. Then, I didn’t stack my material correctly and when we did the whack my stack was a mess. I put the project in a storage bin when I got home. I went to a craft sale last month and a very nice lady said she will help me salvage my project! I am so excited to get started with her after the holiday season! This one project put a damper on all my quilting dreams. But I have found my silver lining!!!

    12/18/2012 6:37 pm

    My quilting goal is the following. I am doing a quilt panel of the month wall hanger. It will be fun to quilt them each month. I have 12 quilt blocks that will be sewn together and quilted. My daughter is in the Army National Guard, so I will be piecing a quilt that reflects her army life. I would love to win a white Sewnatra cabinet, this would allow me to be much more organized and match my fabric stash cabinet.

  827. Martha Says:
    12/18/2012 6:39 pm

    WOW!
    I had just started looking for a cabinet as I’m re-doing my sewing/craft room, I’m even considering begging my mom for hers, that’s how bad I need/want one! :-)
    It is SO much easier to quilt when your machine is NOT sitting on top of a table!
    I would totally pick the black one also, it will match my new room wonderfully.
    Can’t wait until Christmas Eve for one MORE reason!
    Thank you, Connecting Threads for the opportunity.

    I am a beginner quilter and I plan to make quilts for my grandsons this year. I am having trouble finding quilt kits themed for 6-10 year old boys. But I will keep trying. I am using a 40 year old Sears sewing machine with 6 stiwches, but for appliquing letters my sister has the perfect stitch on her machine. I love to quilt and I have quit most all of my old hobbies because I love this so much. I recently completed a quilt-as-you-go design for a local breast cancer event. No pattern, just some good ideas and help from Madeline. I love your products and especially sewing cabinet. I would be pleased with either color, no personal preference.
    Thanks for all you do and Merry Christmas to all, Joe

  834. Susan Johnson Says:

    What a blessing it would be,to have such a beautiful cabinet to store my sewing machine,most of my sewing tools and my projects. I love to sew for charity, making small quilts for children who are hospitalized and in need. I also make baby bibs, and pillowcases for our Veterans. I am a member of the American Sewing Guild, and sew many items to help our community. My sewing room is such a mess, I usually sew at the kitchen table. What a great way to clean-up my mess,and be so much more efficent for those so badly needed projets. Wishing all of you at Connecting Threads a very Merry Christmas and blessings in the New Year.

  843. Lisa Arnold Says:
    12/18/2012 6:55 pm

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to be organized enough to find all of my threads, needles, patterns-in-waiting, rotary cutters, and templates so when I have time to quilt, I would actually quilt (instead of fret of misplaced items). Call me a dreamer! Color preference isn’t all that important – they’re both so lovely. If I had to pick, I’d go for the white, but the black is scrumptious too.

David’s House is home away from home for families of children receiving treatment at Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital for life threatening diseases. There is no charge for families who stay at David’s House. Each child receives a free quilt of their choice to take home. My quilting guild makes & donates over 300 quilts each year to David’s House. If I were to win the white sewing cabinet, I would place it in our quilt show auction next summer to raise money to support David’s House.

Pratice free-motion quilting so that I can quilt my own quilts. Set up a small sewing room to keep my sew machine and supplies so I don’t have to fold up and put away each time everything would have a home. The black cabinet would work great.

    I have just moved into a 400sq ft space and hope to get organized so I can continue my sewing and quilting and get caught up on all my unfinished projects and start new ones. Both of the cabinets are beautiful, but the white would probably fit in my space better.

    To win the white cabinet would be an absolute thrill. Have spent the most of the fall, decluttering, giving away alot of stash, and painting walls to a spare bedroom/sewing space. So my goal is to continue with passing on the majority of the stash and to make quilts for the WSQ guild charity “Mountain of Quilts”.

(hopefully they will both need them soon!) I would love to win the white cabinet, but would enjoy either one of them. I am building a new home and have been looking for ideas for my sewing room.

These are on top of the 3 charity/auction quilts I do each year. Throw in the occassional UFO and intriguing pattern and im back to sooooo much fun and only 12 months!!! I would love the cabinet in either color, but would really enjoy the black one the most.

    I love Connecting Threads! My goal for 2013 is to re-make my daughters quilt. She lost her quilt while moving and she was heartbroken. I had written a special message on the quilt just for her, words of wisdom. I would love to win a white cabinet. It would give me my own space to make quilts and be totally organized. Thank you for this contest!

    My goal for 2013 is to teach my daughter to quilt.She had already asked me to show her how to sew but I do mot have a table to put a sewing machine on the sewing cabinet in black would be a big help. And then we can work on projects together. Thank you and Merry Christmas

    I have several UFOs that I would like to finish and a couple of purses to make for friends. I also have several embroidery projects awaiting me. Would love the cabinet in either color but if I have to choose, I’ll pick the white one

    I hope to finally pick a quilt pattern for my queen sized bed and complete the quilt. Finished my daughters full size quilt made from her high school t shirts this year. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately I had to make a few quilts for sick people this year too. Hopefully I won’t have to do that next year. I don’t have copious time to sew, as I teach, but I am hoping a group of quilters might approach those families in Sandy Hook and offer to make them memorial quilts for those sweet babies. Id love to work on some. My sewing and school work area are the same, so I’d love a cabinet to keep my sewing stuff separated from school materials.
    Happy New Year fellow quilters.

    My boss has been dropping hints for a few years now, how he is the only person that dosen’t have a quilt in his life. I never really took him to serious but word has it that he would love one of my quilts. So that is my 2013 goal. New white cabnet would be a great way to start 2013 instead of my rummage sale find. Thanks.

  882. Sherry Laferriere Says:

    I would love the white cabinet, and use it upstairs near a window. You see, I usually sew down in my cellar, where there aren’t any windows. It would be nice to sew by daylight.

    I love quilting and all the wonderful friends I have met since I started quilting about 3 years ago! My goal in 2013 is to finish close to as many projects as I start :)
    and learn how to applique! Merry Christmas!

  884. Dina McNulty Says:
    12/18/2012 7:55 pm

    My quilting goal is to use up or clear out my stash in the year 2013. The white cabinet would be a much better sewing table than the old formica dining table I use now.

  885. Diane S. Says:

    My quilting goal is to dive in and try quilting! My project is all basted and ready to quilt but I’ve been procrastinating. Free motion seems difficult.

As an art quilter there a great many odds n ends to “quiltly” organise and this wonderful table would really serve this purpose!

    My goal this year is to go through everything and find all of my missing scissors, bobbins, seam rippers,sewing machine feet and other tools of the trade. I’m glad you allowed me to give this some thought. Now, I just have to do it.

    My goal for 2013 is to get my sewing room/guest bedroom/junk room organized! I love the “cottage look” of the white sewnatra,its just the right look for a guest room, and the perfect organizer when I am not sewing. I like to display the wonderful colors of all my spools of “Connecting Threads” for all to see, but patterns, notions and scraps are a different story. Thanks for being the best sewing catalog ever!

    My goal this year is to finish the 3 quilts I have started and then begin art quilting and landscape quilting. I am so fascinated by this type of quilting and have made up my mind to get past the fear of this new adventure.
    This cabinet in white would be a perfect addition to the new sew/quilt room my hubby is building. Thanks

    My goal is to keep exploring my quilting creativity, while keeping some semblance of order in a too small sewing space. Also trying to keep a balance between using up my vast stash while keeping my projects fresh and new using your wonderful fabrics and threads. You folks are my absolute go-to company for all my needs.

    First, I must say that it is so encouraging to see that there are so many excited quilters, who have so many wonderful quilting goals for 2013.
    I am sure that choosing the winner of this SUPER sewing center is going to be a very hard job. I wish you all good luck.
    Second, I want to thank each and every one of you that are quilting for others and those who are teaching others to quilt.
    And finally, my quilting gold for 2013 is to make a baby quilt every day so that by the 31st of December 2013 I can deliver them to the local hospitals that have maternity wards. I plan to start the 1st week in January and since I was just engaged yesterday, ( yes ! at my age.) So the only time I my miss is if we do get hitch in 2013…not too sure about the #13.. I would choose the black color as I have black shelves in my room, but honestly the color would not really matter.
    Good Luck Quilters and Best Wishes to the chosen WINNER. Merry Christmas.

  895. Kathy Says:
    12/18/2012 8:09 pm

    I have a few quilts planned for 2013, but one that I plan I do is a benefit quilt for Alzheimer’s , since my mom is in the final stages. It will be embroidered as well. It will have a few fireman’s things in memory of my dad, who died from cancer, as well as an embroidery of a cat like she had that she loved so much, and other items that she loved. I have to sew at my dining room table, so an actual sewing table that I could keep set up in my bedroom would be a dream.

    Oh how they take their tolls.
    I make them and break them and turn them around
    And then they continue to abound.
    Finsh quilt for Caleb and pillow for Liv,
    then Christmas gifts earlier ready to give.
    A beautiful black cabinet would look so great
    my sewing room cleanup will be my next date.
    My rhyme may be silly,
    But that cabinet’s a dilly!

    I have joined a group of ladies at our church and we are making lap quilts for chemo patients and dialysis patients. My goal is to make as many as I can in 2013.
    My color preference would be the white. What a awesome addition it would make to my sewing room.

    I am planning to quilt at least an hour each day of the new year. I would love to have the cabinet in white. These cabinets are a wonderful way to store and organize all the necessities I have scattered around here and there in my quilting room. My goal for the new year is to completely organize my sewing room so everything will be right where it should be and help me to accomplish my goal of quilting every day. Quilting is my heart’s love and my goal for myself is to go to that “quilting place” in my heart each day where I can express my artistic side. thank you for the opportunity to win!

    I would love to have the cabinet in black. I am going to finish my double wedding ring quilt that I have had started for several years. My mother’s church group will hand quilt it so I need to hurry. The cabinet would make a great addition to my quilting/sewing room. It would organize it so that my supplies are at finger tip reach. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all.

    I belong to the Granada Hills Woman’s Club. Each year our crafts group has a boutique of which all proceeds go to charity. This year we raised $2000.00 for the Child Guidence Clinic in Northridge. We donate all the supplies and labor. This cabinet would help me keep my projects organized and in one area. My goal for this year is to increase my boutique donations and help more children.

    My goal for 2013 is to be able to finish a queen “plus” quilt I started about 3 years ago for my husband and I’s bed. I constantly have to set it aside to finish other sewing projects that I am making for gifts. I would love the black cabinet! It would look great in my green sewing room/office! :)

  907. Carla Ball Says:
    12/18/2012 8:46 pm

    There are about 8 quilting projects in the que, but the most
    important one is the quilt for my baby granddaughter, Charlotte.
    I love sewing and quilting, and the stash gets ever larger, despite my
    best efforts. A cabinet would be a wonderful thing to have, particularly
    a white one.

    My quilting goal for 2012 had been to learn how to free motion quilt, and what I’ve learned is that there was LOTS to learn, and that PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE! is the key to getting good at it. My goal for 2013 is to work on my notebook full of my personal quilting designs that use “every last scrap,” and to finish them via practising my newfound skills in free motion quilting. I would love to win the white sewing cabinet…it’s adorable, and being able to sink my sewing machine in a cabinet would go a long way in helping me get better at free motion quilting.

  909. Karen O Says:

    I would love to have a sewing center so I could have all my things organized. Now I am sewing on an old kitchen table in the middle of my basement. I am working on a quilt for my grandson’s wedding next September. It would be nice to have a white cabinet to sew on.

  912. Cathy Says:
    12/18/2012 8:55 pm

    Just one! I have SO many UFOs and my local guild encourages completion by giving beads/trinkets. I would LOVE to put one of my handpieced quilt tops into a floor frame I purchased this year and hand quilt it! THAT would be wonderful – while I also work on my machine quilting on a baby quilt for my new niece. Black or white? I’m not particular – it is a beautiful piece!

    I am a cancer patient at cancer treatment centers of America. I love to sew and quilt, so I am making hats,blankets and other items to help out other patients to get threw this terrible disease.

    I belong to a group that goes to our local Veterans’ Hospital twice a month to make wheelchair and bed quilts for the men and women who served us. This is a wonderful chance for us to mingle with the service members while we sew.
    Unfortunately, there isn’t a locked storage area for us, so I have to drag my machine and all my tools for every meeting. If I had this wonderful Sewnatra (in white), I could leave my sewing machine and all my tools in it and they would be protected by the lock. This would make our/my efforts so much easier and would also make it easier to do more for the wonderful men and women who served us so well.

    One of my goals for 2013 is to complete a quilt for my 63 year old totally handicapped sister. This quilt will match the one I made for her physical therapist who is an angel sent from above. If I win, I would like the white one to match my sewing room.

    My goal this year is to finish the UFO’s I have started. One is for a family member who has not received one from me yet, and is long overdue. I also want to take a wall down, between two bedrooms, one that is being used for a cutting and fabric room, and one that is being used as a sewing and quilting machine room, and turn them into one great sewing room. There for, winning the cabinet would be a good help. I would like it in white, but Black would also blend in to the decor of the rooms. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to enter this contest.

    Wheelchair quillows for the local nursing home
    Finish two memory quilts a friend/guild member who passed away
    I have six quilts cut and labeled but no place to leave a machine up. The fabric is in the laundry closet, the machine is in the clothes closet and the sewing supplies are in the linen closet.
    I need a white Sewantra cabinet under my sunny bedroom window that can double as a night stand.

I also want to make a quilt for grandson to take to college next fall, since he graduates from high school next spring.

    I would like to win this table for my daughter. She is new at sewing and has a machine I gave her and she sits it on top of a little folding table. She has a family with 4 children and cannot really afford better accomodations. She spends as much time as possible making clothes for her daughters. My inspiration for the next year is to get as many half done projects finished and to watch my daughter grow in her abilities.

    My quilting goals for 2013 start with finishing my sorting project for my runaway stash. Then I have to finish quilting several quilts…but the patchwork part is so much more fun! The black cabinet would give me such a nice large space to work that I might grow to love the quilting just as much, however. Your gorgeous thread kits also help…so keep me motivated, guys!

The first one I have planned is for my daughter while she is in High School! I like the white sewing cabinets best. Other projects: 4-H with the kids, make more pillowcases for the Camp for Courageous Kids and participate in the two quilt groups I am involved in, helping to make quilts for various charities and groups!

    My goal for 2013 is to take 100 quilts to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, PICU unit. I just delivered 47 to them about a month ago. I made 22 and received an additional 25 from members of the quilt forum I belong to. I have started a group within the forum, and already have 20 members. In my mind this is a very attainable goal for me. It would be a true blessing for me tho have such a wonderful work space to create from. I would love to have this in white, because I would put this in my dining/kitchen area where I currently work. Good luck to all the entrants.

    I am the luckiest lady you will find today! My husband just bought me a hand quilting frame,(finished and assembled it for me as well). I love that guy! My goal is to piece and quilt many quilts in 2013. I particularly hope to make quilts for our wounded veterans, I have read that they are greatly appreciated by those heroic warriors. I would like to contribute to their recovery with something that lets them know moms appreciate their valor.

    I wanted to sign up for a chance to win this cabinet in white, but when I saw how everyone is doing such wonderful quilts for others, I almost felt ashamed. I still would love to have this space to sew so I can finish some lap quilts for sick friends in need of some warm wishes.

    Oh, so much fabric – so little time! With 11 grandchildren, I have many, many projects started but moved in to a very small apartment after cancer surgery so there is little room to work. The white cabinet would be a wonderfully functional way to get back to making quilts to pass my love on to yet another generation of my family. Thank you for this opportunity and may the spirit of Christmas continue to fill your world throughout the year.

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to continue as a Quilts For Kids chapter leader and help our volunteers to sew and give away more quilts in 2013 than we did in 2012. (In our first year, we distributed 74 quilts to children in our community.)
    My sewing room has become filled with donated fabric and batting, and my sewing machine is currently sitting on top of an old typing stand. Works great, but there’s no storage space at all.
    I would love the Sewnatra cabinet in black. (I love the way it looks closed up, but it will probably be open most of the time since I’m a “quilt-a-holic.”) : )
    Thank you!

    My goal for 2013 is to make nap quilts (smaller than bed size, larger than lap) for each of two sons and daugher-in-laws and myself, as well as put together another 100 or more bowl cozies for our annual Linus Project fundraiser boutique. I’d love a white Sewnatra to organize my small sewing space better.

    If I win this, I will be giving it to my 8 year old grandson. He loves to sew! He has an old machine that really needs to be replaced. My daughters and I are going to buy a new one. The cabinet would be icing on the cake!!

    I have decided that for every new quilt I finish, I will do one of my UFO’s–and finish it before starting another new quilt. I will put the white cabinet in my living room since I like to watch tv while i sew. I will get more sewing done this way.
    Thank You.

    I started sewing because I wanted a dragonfly quilt, and I am almost done. To improve my sewing skills I have made scrub tops to wear at work, I am a nurse at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. My patients love my bright cheery tops, and for 2013 I plan to make some lap quilts for my patients who are usually so far from home and family for cancer treatment. The white cabnit would be a great gift so I can get orginized and create quilts full of love, joy, and warmth for my patients to have. Thanks, Erin.

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to quilt all the tops I have made. I have taken a free motion quilting class and just need to practice a little more to get my confidence up. My sewing machine is now on a table in a bedroom (turned into sewing-computer room). Having this cabinet would allow me to put the table away and give me more room. I would choose the white one.

She passed away in May at the age of 87, and had been trying to get all the flowers done, but didn’t quite make it.

    This is my goal for 2013 and for every year. I love making quilts, whether it is for family, friends or neighbors. When the spirit moves me, I figure out what fabric they match and get down to business. It is a great getaway for me, sewing; and when I am making a quilt I listen to a good book, I think, I plan, I cogitate and I pray. My world, my quilt, my rules. And people can reap the feeling of my love for quilting. I would like the white cabinet. Thank you.

I have never won anything in my life(except for my husband of 49 years)….Always said when I retire, which I am now, I want to do quilting, and I have been and really do enjoy it and am self taught, as I can’t afford to go to classes that cost money. I would really enjoy the cabinet in either color, everything looks so organized. I enjoy doing the smaller projects, like table toppers and runners, but just finished my first full size quilt. spent a lot of time down in my sewing area and will continue to do so as long as the good Lord lets me.

  1004. Susan Says:
    12/19/2012 5:11 am

    One of the reasons I feel I don’t get most of my sewing projects done is because of accessibility.
    Of course, not having enough time comes into play as well. As a result, my sewing has taken a huge backseat in my life. I am an artist by nature. I consider sewing and quilting an art. By taking the the time to do the things you love, I think makes you feel better both mentally and physically.
    In 2013, I have promised myself to “get back into it.” When I saw this cabinet, without even knowing you were having a contest “giveaway,” I said, “That is the answer!” If you can have your work station close by, it makes it easier to sit down and get to work.
    Next year, I will have space to put a piece of furniture because my daughter will be going off to college and we can finally get rid of our desktop computer. On my list of projects, besides finishing UFO’s, is making a t-shirt quilt, curtains and maybe a new bed quilt for my bedroom.
    Our quilt group will be exchanging “jelly rolls” at our holiday party next week. We are going to use these jelly rolls to make quilts for an organization that centers around teenage girls. I will know more details after the exchange.
    I have a better chance of reaching my goal if I have my work station close by. I’m afraid that “out of sight; out of mind” has taken me away from a hobby that I love. Thank you for letting me tell my story…oh, and black would be my choice. :-)

When that is done, I have a picnic quilt for my table that’s been waiting a year to make and a wall hanging calling my name! My mother and I like to have sewing days together. This black cabinet would make a great place for my second machine so my mother could sew with me in the same room, just not the same table, lol.

If I were lucky enough to win, I would love the white cabinet. At this time, I have to put up and take down my machine from the kitchen table each time I want to sew.

    In the next year, I plan to finish all the unquilted quilt tops that I have accumulated, and start a few of those Connecting Threads quilt kits that I’ve been amassing! What a great little cabinet—my time to sew is rather limited, and I could sew 30 minutes a day and then put the machine away to keep my cats from playing with it. I would love the white cabinet.

  1024. Vonne Grunza Says:

    My goal is to get finished the quilts which are started, three of them,and to organize the fabric which is scattered all over the house.

    Next year I would like to be able to make three quilts–a quilt for each of my three grandsons–ages 7, 6, and 4. I like the black cabinet.

    I would like the cabinet in black please. My goal for this year is to quilt my granddaughters quilt that i pieced this year. I have my own quilting machine but this quilt is so beautiful i don’t havew the confindence to quilt it yet. But my friends have me so busy this year quilting for them by the end of 2013 i should be able to tackle this one. She is 7 and already pieced her 1st quilt and did a really nice job. Linda

    I have been sewing since I was 12 years old, over 55 years. Have been hooked ever since. Starting sewing clothes, than crafts, now loves quilts. Have so many “projects” can’t wait to retire to really get going.
    It’s an amazing hobby, meeting so many nice people, with as much fabric as I have. Love every minute of it.

    Thank you for the chance to win the sewing cabinet. I would love to win the white one. My goal is to make Jenny Doan’s king size “Big Block Star Quilt featured in her Youtube video. Actually, I am making 2 of them. I bought 4 layer cakes and it takes 2 to make one king size, so I’m making twice as many as previously planned. Again, thank you so so so much for the opportunity to win this beautiful sewing cabinet!!!! I sew at a table.

    I would love to win the white cabinet for my daughter-in-law. I have taught her to sew and to quilt and she is so excited with her new found hobby. She has an old featherweight that I gave her and it would be wonderful if she had a nice place to keep all of her supplies. I will think happy thoughts!

    I’ve been told my messy quilting/sewing room is not unusual, next year I would like to quilt up the scraps I have, organization is needed, so the small cabinet looks like it would help solve some of my problems in the area I work in, thanks for this offereing.

    When my mother asked last year what I’d like for Christmas, I asked her to teach me how to quilt. She purchased the all the fabric from Connecting Threads and and we went to work. I did a beautiful table runner using Batiks. With the leftover material I made another (on my own) for our living room table. I was ready to tackle a larger project. I found a pattern and of course purchased my material from Connecting Threads. Finished the top and it is georgeous! Now I’ve got to gain the confidence to do the quilting. I know it would make it easier if I had table that my machine would sit into and fold up as this one shown. I would prefer the black, but would love to have either color. Thank you.

    I have 84 or more UFO’s mostly kits I’ve purchased. I would love to put a significant dent in getting several of these projects completed in 2013 which means I need to spend every spare minute piecing and quilting. I’d also like to spend time designing some of my own quilts using my EQ7 software. I wake up at night thinking of all the projects I want to do. I do need more storage though to organize better so I’d love to win the cabinet in white. Thank you I love your book and batting sales.

    12/19/2012 6:51 am

    My biggest goal this 2013 is to complete my 6 UFO’s> I had about 10 and complete four more these last couple of months. I would Like to start the new Year out with a new Cabinet in white to help me get more organized in the tiny space I have to work. Thank you for a chance to win. The First of my UFo’s is a quilt I want to finish for my dad. He will be 81.

    In 2008 I was involved in a horrific motor vehicle whereby I had broken both my wrists, both kneecaps, shattered my shin bone, broke my ankle and remained hospital for 5 months. I have been doing rehab ever since. In August of this year a very dear friend of mine introduced me to the beautiful world of sewing. I had no previous knowledge of sewing whatsoever, but I am addicted. Even though I have many, many challenges and cannot do the things I use to do, sewing has become my passion to help fill in for the things I otherwise loved to do. I have completed 2 quilts already, aprons, placemats and would love to be fortunate enough to win the cabinet. The color is not important to me…Thank you for the opportunity of ordering from your website and I love shopping with you guys….Merry Christmas to you all.

    About 34 years ago I hand pieced quilt squares from inherited fabric, then life responsibilities got in the way. Since I just retired, 2013 could very well be the year for me to finish that project. So many memories are wrapped in that stack. Thanks for the opportunity to work from a new white cabinet.

    #1 Goal for 2013 is to be able to machine quilt well enough to make a raffle quilt for our local library. Since 2012 marked the end of my 6 year term as Library Board President, this would be an expression of my gratitude to this community for accepting my husband and I when we retired. I am also looking to purchase a new sewing machine so winning this cabinet would definitely help me achieve this goal.

    12/19/2012 7:07 am

    My quilting goals for 2013 are to get some of my UFO’s done. And try something new, like free motion quilting, more complex patterns, or maybe go all out and do an art quilt.
    I would love to win the cabinet in black. It would help so much having a dedicated table for my sewing machine.

    A year and a half ago I was intorduced to Connecting threads and have been adicted to it since. After ten years of not touching my quilting I’ve not only gotten back into to it, my friend also got back into quilting and we get togehter on weekends to quilt. My 21 year old daughter has asked me to teach her how to quilt and she has also started placing orders with connecting threads. Thanks Connecting Trheads for giving us in Canada a great web site to order fabrics from. We love yuou selections

    I hope to finish a Civil War reproduction fabric quilt that I am making for my living room — that’s my big project. My main goal, however, is just to spend regular time every week sewing/quilting instead of pushing it to the bottom of the to-do list!

    12/19/2012 7:14 am

    My goal for 2013 is to make a batik quilt that I have had the fabric for (purchased from Connecting Threads)a couple of YEARS! I would love to have this sewing cabinet in white to help organize and complete this UFO.

    I have several quilitng goals this year. One of which is finishing the 5 UFOs I have in my closet. And by finish I mean quilting them myself. I’d also like to redo my quilting space – does that count? Oh yeah, I also want to actually do my love quilt for my guild. Make my husband, daughter and new neice/nephew a quilt. Those are not included in the UFOs that I need to complete. See, I have a ton. Thanks for the contest and Happy Holidays to everyone out there. May your quilting wishes come true.

    White cabinet, PLEASE pick me. I have more than 12 quilt tops to finish, 3 others that need to be quilted, 2 others ready to put the binding on, and then others will need to be bound after quilting. This is in addition to over half a dozen other projects. Using my machine on a table is exhausting – a cabinet would be sooooo wonderful!

    I would love to win a white cabinet to help me with a quilt I am making for my little sister. Our mother died of breast cancer a few years back and she is still struggling with the loss. Quilts always have a way of holding memories.

  1055. Donna Rae Says:
    12/19/2012 7:30 am

    I am telling myself that I am going to finish all my UFO’s and sew up items for Craft Show. I have lot’s of UFO’s so that will keep me very busy. They are left from when I first started learning how to quilt and sew so have lots of corrections to make. LOL…. Boy would that cabinet be a huge help! Would like mine to be in black. But any color would do just fine.

  1056. Lou Ann Bucheimer Says:
    12/19/2012 7:32 am

    I will be using my stash this year, to make as many donated quilts as possible. I have 2 EMs, 1 regular and one Featherweight. I have been known to have 3 going at a time. And sometimes my 10 year old grandson comes over to do machine embroidery too.
    A new white cabinet would hold my serger, which would allow another machine to be going.

    My goal for 2013 is to make a quilt for a deprived child that has never had the comfort of sleeping under a homemade quilt! I feel every child should have at least one comfort quilt they can snuggle under. Both cabinets are beautiful but if I had to choose I would love the black cabinet. Thank you and I hope each and every one of you have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

    If I am fortunate to be the lucky one to win that beautiful “White” Sewnatra Sewing Cabinet, my granddaughter will love sitting at it and picking threads for our next quilt piecing I am planning to do with her in the New Year by taking memory items of fabric and make this quilt for her to always remember me by. She loves to go into my BIZ Bag (scrap fabric) to salvage pieces for her private sewing projects each time she comes. Her favorite place is being in my sewing room.

    I have (too) many quilting plans for 2013 – starting with a “Periodic Table” quilt for daughter, who asked me to make it, with embroidered “atomic masses” and all. And then there and a few gifts (2 baby quilt, 2 wedding quilts) and a fundraiser quilt for a heart transplant. Wish me luck! If I were lucky enough to get the cabinet, I would prefer the white one. Lovely!

  1062. Elizabeth Rogers Says:
    12/19/2012 7:51 am

    I would love to win this in a white finish, what a great giveaway, thank you for the opportunity. My quilting goal for upcoming New Year, is to make a quilt just for me. In the spring I find I am often bummed that I make these beautiful quilts for others and I don’t have any beautiful quilts for my own bed. So this year I will be making a circle themed Mandala Quilt, because everything comes full circle back to the quilter, me where it began.

    We downsized and my sewing room has gone from a bedroom set up with tables that I had to give to Goodwill to a small space in a corner. I have to sew at the kitchen table because I don’t have a large space to set up my machine. This cabinet would be perfect! I could stow it when not in use and when I feel the urge to sew I could have an actual sewing space that wouldn’t interfere with dinner. Best of all maybe the stash under my bed would be used up and my husband won’t complain about stubbing his toes on the way to bed. Well maybe I won’t go that far everyone needs a stash!

    My goal for 2013 is to make a quilt for my son and his bride to be as a wedding gift. They will be married in August 2013. I am very new to quilting. Last year, I took a block of the month class, but have not put the backing on it. My goal this year is to put the backing on that, and to make the quilt for my son. I would love to receive the black cabinet, but would be equally excited to receive the white one as well. My brother made me a cabint that I have my sewing machine on now, so if I don’t win this, I am still very happy with the one my brother made for me. Thank you and happy 2013.

    Winning such a beautiful compact sewing cabinet would be such a blessing being a single mom I’n a small apartment affording such a item would be unobtainable for me. I started quilting a few years ago & was taught by a very dear friend! She is always very patient with me as I continue to pick at her brain to learn new skills. One project I am pushing myself to complete I’n the up coming year is a “Honu pattern” queen sized quilt to bring life toy room.

    My goal for 2013 is to make a quilt to enter in a quilt show. My sewing space is limited. I’ve been sewing with my machine on a dining room table so I can’t adjust the height to be ergonomically correct for sewing long periods of time. The chairs I have don’t help either. I’ve tried all kinds of adjustments, but none of them have worked very well. I was in a bad car accident several years ago and I had upper and lower body orthopedic injuries, so the physical challenge of needing to be able to sew in a correct ergonomic position has been limiting. This cabinet would make a HUGE difference for me. I like the white best.

  1069. Elizabeth Murray Says:
    12/19/2012 8:10 am

    My 2013 goal is to organize my sewing space in January so that I can get some serious sewing done all year long. I have made a personal commitment to have quilts made up and ready to donate to those in need.

WE WILL TRAVEL IN OUR MOTORHOME AND MY SEWING MACHINE WILL ALSO TRAVEL WITH ME DURING THE YEAR AS I LOOK FORWARD TO MAKING STOPS AT ANY AND ALL FABRICS SHOPS ALONG THE WAY.

    What a wonderful gift to give to any sewing/quilting person. I have 2 wonderful nieces that are both interested in learning to quilt. My wonderful husband is working on a special room for myself to “store” all of my fabrics, notions and machines. This cabinet would be a great addition to my “personal” space and would provide a wonderful work station for my nieces to share when they come to sew and learn. My goals for 2103 are 1) to spend as much time as possible with my family doing what we all love – quilting, and 2) organizing my new room so that I can find all of my neat notions and my wonderful fabric – much of which has come from Connecting Threads.

    Create two t-shirt quilts for grandsons graduating in the spring–
    Create order out of the chaos of my sewing room–

You offer great quality fabric, books, threads and tools, and you are so generous with your free pattern downloads, free shipping and great customer service. My goals for this coming year are to complete 2 quilts for our guild’s quilt show in February 2014, to teach quilting classes again at our church, and to contribute as many cuddle quilts as we can to our local Quilts For Kids chapter. I do also have quilts to be made for my grandchildren, and those will get done during this year. Thanks for being such a great quilting supply company. I do love shopping your website!

    I really need to master my mid-arm quilting machine and the design software that works with it before it turns to rust. I have vowed not to start another quilt until I am able to quilt it on this equipment. I would love the white cabinet and perhaps could have it sent to a friend in the US until I could pick it up from Canada.

    My plan for next year is to make different wall hangers and decorate my home. I also have several UFO’s (if you can imagine that ;-)…)I would like to finish as well as participate in guild challenges and making community service quilts. As for learning something new, I would like to perfect my applique skills. The cabinet I like is white.

  1083. Marilyn Jones Says:
    12/19/2012 8:42 am

    My family thinks that QUILTER is synonymous with FABRIHOLIC. I keep telling them that I am just planning for my retirement and will eventually use it all up (right!) Until that time, trying to keep organized and have the items I want to sew quickly available is a great thing. In 2013, I would like to finish several of the monthly quilts I began in 2012, including putting them together in quilt tops so that I can get them quilted! A White cabinet would help me hid some of the stash!!!

  1084. Norma DuVall Says:
    12/19/2012 8:49 am

    I have never made a quilt,but I love to sew and this next year 2013, I would like to make a quilt bed runner for the end of my bed. I live in a small town and have no acesss to a quilt shop where I can buy material, so I buy material etc. from Connecting Threads. I really like the way you group like colors together. I would like the white cabinet. It would look nice in my sewing room. Merry Christmas.

  1085. Susan Says:
    12/19/2012 8:50 am

    I have several quilting goals. But if I can only choose one, it is to make a wall quilt for a big, bare wall in my dining room, something in an old-fashioned feathered star medallion pattern, in blues with perhaps red accents on a white background. I’ve been thinking about this for quite a while, so maybe this will be the year I get it done! A white cabinet would be great for storing everything needed for making this quilt.

  1086. Barbara Smith Says:
    12/19/2012 8:56 am

    When I retired after 36 years in public education, I got an embroidery machine as a retirement gift from my husband. I have converted one of our spare bedrooms into a sewing room and refer to it as the Smithsewnian. I have done many small sewing projects many of which have come from kits and ideas from Connecting Threads, but I decided that my next project goal was to make a king size quilt. I love the Rose of Sharon patterns and purchase the AccuQuilt dies to cut out my patterns. I also purchased a book that uses the quilt as you go technique. I have all 25 block designed and am machine appliqueing each one. When I am finished appliqueing them, the machine quilting will begin. My sewing space now is a table that I purchased at Sam’s. I would love to have the white sewing table to help me complete this project. The space to the left of the machine would make managing the fabric so much easier. The convenience of having my threads on the right would save a lot of time scooting in my sewing chair from one table to another. I would truly love to become the proud owner of the Sewnatra and would love to place it in the Smithsewnian.

  1087. Sue Baker Says:
    12/19/2012 9:01 am

    My quilting goal for 2013 is to get ORGANIZED! Right now I use my dining table to do all my cutting, piecing, and machine quilting and would love to have one dedicated space in my home to do all of this. My space is very limited and will require reorganizing a spare bedroom to do this, and the Sewnatra would really help! The white finish cabinet would work beautifully and compliment the décor in the space I have in mind. Thanks so much for the chance to win this awesome cabinet!

    I have so many quilt projects and so little time. Should I clean or sew? I know what I would like to do. I will have many projects to work on when I retire. If I win I would like the cabinet in white.

    Sew! Sew! Sew! – my quilting goal for 2013. I’m looking forward to new fabrics from Connecting Threads to help me reach my goal of one quilt for each family member in 2013.

    My goals for 2013 is to make sure each of my 5 grandchildren, my daughters and other family members get new quilts for their birthdays. I have the material, thread and the patterns in mind for each. Just need the sewing center to make it ALL happen!! For now I am using the kitchen table which stays cluttered all the time.

    I have recently reorganized my sewing/quilting room. I purchased an old butler’s pantry and refurbished it, afterwards becoming the display cabinet for my fabrics, many of which were purchased from Connecting Threads. For Christmas this year, I asked my husband to put up some cabinets, both wall and base, so I could add some storage space to the room. One item remains to be purchased and that is a sewing cabinet — in white — that will house my sewing machine. Currently, I sew on a plastic table, which does a good job, but a sewing cabinet would be so much nicer. Thank you for the opportunity to be considered for a new sewing cabinet — and for the wonderful fabrics you sell and your website. Merry Christmas to the staff of Connecting Threads.

    I just started quilting this year after 20 years of saying “someday I will learn how to quilt”. I’m on my way!I’ve made 2 quilts. My goal this new year is to learn as much as I can about quilting from people and Connecting Threads. The black cabinet would be a great start on this new hobby!

    WOW! What a great gift to receive. I have a quilt I will be working on using my friend’s infant clothes. Also, I want to finish a quilt that my mother started years ago. She has since passed, so working on that will truly be special.
    We live in a small cottage so this cabinet would be PERFECT! Both colors are beautiful so this choice is difficult, but I think I would go with the black!
    Thank you so much for this WONDERFUL giveaway! :D

    This is a beautiful piece. White would be great but either color is fine. I plan on helping my mom organize her sewing space. She is 82 and still going strong. She taught me everything I know about sewing, and we quilt together. This would be a wonderful surprise for her, as we both have a gazillion UFO’s that we need to finish in 2013.

    Wow,what a wonderful gift this would make. I adore the cabinet in black. I am looking to retire soon and then I can sew all the time. My husband brought me home a Necchi from the 50′s that he found at a thrift store for about $15.00. He serviced and cleaned it all up. My machine sews so good now. But I only have one sewing table. My computerized machine sits there. It would be wonderful to have a cabinet for my new machine so I can have it ready to sew anytime I felt like it. Thank-you and have a wonderful Christmas.

    Through my church sewing guild I have made quilts for Linus Project and local children’s hospitals. In 2013 I plan to focus my energy to making quilts for my eleven grandchildren (soon to be twelve!). It is a tradition that my mother started and I hope to continue it. The white cabinet would be perfect in my small sewing room. I have arthritis in my hands and lifting my machine is difficult.

    My goal for 2013 is to make my first large quilt. I had intended for it to be a high school graduation gift for my oldest son and he just graduated from college. If I can get that done, then I have two more sons to get their high school graduation quilts done. My quilting area is a card table in the living room, so a sewing cabinet like that would be very nice. I would like black if I win.

    My goal is to finish at least some of the quilts (3) that I have started and to start one that I have the material for.
    also to finish remodeling my sewing room/craft room. The white cabinet would go wonderful in my White and aqua basement sewing room, and the cabinet would help to organize it as well.I am a new quilter (since 2005)but have sewn for at least 50 years. Looking for something to make out of the two pieces of material that I used to make clothes for my children over 40 years ago.

Two make a beautiful quilt for my sis who is the primary caretaker for our 93 year old mom as an extra special thank you for all she does. I think the white finish cabinet is my favorite as I want my new space to be “bright and creative”.

    My goal is to finish the binding on the first quilt I made with my quilting buddies. About five years ago, the project was machine quilted, and about two years ago, I sewed the binding on one side using the sewing machine. Now…if I could just find the time and patience to hand stitch the other side! Although I’d love the cabinet in black to get organized, the gift certificates would be greatly appreciated here in Canada.

    Three years ago I purchased a used Walmart sewing machine as I had always wanted to make a quilt. I have since purchased a newer used machine and teaching myself to quilt. My sewing machine is on a table in the living room as in a 900 square foot home, there is not extra space for a quilting room. I am currently hand quilting the first quilttop I made about two years ago. The one where none of the stars match up. When done with that, I plan to be really ambitious and finally finish the next two tops I did which are waiting to be finished. This year I will achieve these goals. The white finish would be my choice.

  1142. Donna Says:

Unfortunately, I am always using my dining room table and have to take it all down for dinner each evening. To be able to always have my ‘stuff’ set up on this beautiful cabinet in white would be such a joy!!!!

    My goal this year is to convert the extra bedroom into a sewing room so I can actually sew anytime I want! Right now, I have to use the kitchen table which means moving everything out each time we eat. UGH!! I would LOVE this sewing cabinet in white for my new studio!

    My goal for quilting in 2013 is to attend one of quilting events, like the Puyallup, WA show. I have several projects to complete, where I tried new techniques. The cabinet would be good to keep my projects organized close to the sewing machine.
    Thank you for the chance to win. Merry Christmas!!!

    My 2013 goal is to use as much of my “Stash” of material to make as many quilts as I can for Quilts of Valor. I joined our area chapter and can’t believe the appreciation from our veterans. A black cabinet would look great and add to my sewing area. Thanks for a great website.

    My goal for 2013 is to get my sewing room organized! I currently use old desks & tables for sewing & all my fabric & supplies are in piles on the floor. The sewing cabinet you are giving away would help me get closer to my goal. I would prefer white if I were to win the cabinet.

    For 2013, I would like to make a monthly wall hanging to raffle off for a good cause. My favorite cause is the St. Baldrick’s Foundation which does research to find a cure for Childhood cancer. One of the other ways that I raise money for this cause is that in March, I shave off all my hair of which has been growing for a whole year! It is scary, but to me there is no better cause than helping kids. So far, I have made one wall hanging this month and raised over $100. I want to top that every month.
    If I am to win I would love the white Sewnatra.
    Thanks you for the chance to win.

    I bought a used long arm learning to use that and I have 17 quilt tops ready for quilting so I’ll be busy in 2013. I also have 3 new quilt tops in the works wanting to finish by Christmas 2013. I have products and notions in 3 different places in storage boxes, it would be great to have things in one place and not in storage boxes. White would be great.

Some tell me I could open a store with all the fabric I have, I would love to use as much of my stash as possible. The sewing cabinet in white is very beautiful and would match my other storage units.

    I would love the white cabinet. My goal for 2013 is to finish the quilts that I have in various stages of completion. This year I decided to have my quilts quilted by a long arm quilter, so I could focus on finishing the UFOs that I have. This was a good idea, and I want to continue this for 2013.

I just learned to hand quilt 6 years ago! I love it!! so relaxing! Jean

    I have 2 goals for quilting in 2013. The first goal is to organize my limited sewing area, it is currently at the end of my bedroom. I am looking to create more workspace and storage, so I can spread out a little. My second goal is to make personal quilts for my children and grandchildren. I have been so busy sewing for my small business and working full time, I have not had time to make for my family. The job is now part time, so I plan to use the extra hours to make each a special quilt full of memories.

They are moving 12 hours away from us, and I want to send him off with something that will remind him every day of how much he is loved. Both cabinet colors are beautiful, but I think the white one would fit in almost anywhere in my house, especially my sewing room.

I have gained a grand daughter-in-law, and 2 great grand kids. I am passing all this extra furniture to my grandson and for his family in their first home together. Now that my house has room I need that sewing cabinet to finish the 4 quilts I’m making from some of my sisters clothes memory quilts for all the kids my sister’s asked me to make. Now I have room in my sewing room for this cabinet. The joy it would bring will sure make my future a little better.

I have purchased several of your fabrics and some kits. I have been so happy with all your products. The cabinet would make my life so much better. I live in a small condo in Sun City, AZ. My daughter moved in with me recently and I no longer have a sewing room. This cabinet is so compact and practical that I would be able to be so much more organized. Thanks for the opportunity to be considered for it. Black would fit into my home the best.

    It is so generous of Connecting Threads to brighten someones life and sewing room with such a beautiful sewing cabinet. My goal for 2013 is to spend more quality time in my sewing room to complete projects in progress and to reduce the size of my stash. The white cabinet would be such a welcome improvment to my sewing room. In any case I will continue to enjoy browsing and shopping the Connecting Threads website. I have been very pleased with the quality of the products I have purchased in the past and look forward to exploring your new fabric lines and products. Merry Christmas to all and may all of your pieces come together in the coming year.

    I’m a new quilter and just finished my 10th quilt. I had to retire about 6 years ago and I tried almost every craft that is out there. I started sewing and was pretty bad at it. Then I tried quilting (quilts don’t have to “fit”). I am definitely hooked. Now all I need is a place to put my machine. The Sewnatra cabinet would be wonderful. Since it would kinda be a Christmas present, you can surprise me with either of the Sewnatra cabinets. I love both the black and the white. My goal is boring, I just want to get better at my new craft.

I would like to make table runners with matching placemats and napkins for all my friends and for all the holidays for my 2013 project.

    My mother taught me to sew many years ago when I was very young. After my mother passed away and her estate was settled I replaced my 50 year old machine with personality quirks. She would have been happy that I finally got rid of it, afterall she threw that machine away 40 years ago. I think of her everytime I sew. A new white cabinet would be great to have while I learn to use the new machine. My goal is to finish some of the quilts I started to go on the beds in my house before our 30th anniversary. I need to get back to work to finish the quilt for my daughter before Santa gets here. Merry Christmas to all!

    One of my quilting goals is to make a quilt specifically for my husband. The fabrics are selected, as is the pattern…it’s just the making part that needs to be done.

    My first goal for the upcoming year is to complete a quilt for a fundraiser for a little girl in Florida who has Cerebral Palsy. Then I can’t wait to start some baby quilts for some of my nieces who will be having babies this year.

    I would love the cabinet in white to sew in our family room and I could come back to my quilting anytime without clearing off the table and setting up the machine again.
    My goal is to finish many more quilts for the organization “Quilts for Kids”. The children in the hospital get great comfort from the quilts. And the colors and designs are endless.

    2012 has been a health issue year and hopefully 2013 will be a quilting year! Just bought a Grace frame and in the process of setting it up. Can hardly wait till after the New Year to start outputting those quilts. Will be needing a lot of backing, batting and thread from Connecting Threads to accomplish this.

    My goal next year is to keep having as much fun sewing with my friends as I have had since I started quilting just a couple of years ago! I also love giving my creations to family and friends. The white cabinet would be great and it could teach me to be more organized! I currently have cobbled together a sewing area with a couple of old cabinets.Hey,whatever works-right?

    We have moved recently and I finally have a room to do all my crafts – quilting, knitting/crocheting and other crafting. I would sooo appreciate receiving the white cabinet as a new addition to my dream sewing room in order to store all my sewing/quilting accessories including my new sewing machine (which I have also asked Santa for). It would help provide more space in my room for the quilting frame I just purchased at a thrift store. My plan is to complete all my UFOs so I can begin working on the quilt I have planned to give to my childhood girlfriend.

    My sister in law sent me a bunch of shirt fabric leftovers. I want to make a twin size quilt out of those. Plus I want to finish a free hand piecing full quilt for my son.
    I would love the cabinet in black… I think.

    I, like every one else, would be thrilled beyond belief to win a white Sewnatra cabinet! My husband would probably be more thrilled as I am invading his office space with my sewing. If I win, I could be squirreled away in the bedroom just happy as a lark sewing away for hours and hours! Just thinking about the quilts I could sew gives me goose bumps!!

I have a 2 year old granddaughter Joan that I am going to teach to sew. I am not picky about colors. The gift itself is enough.MY goal this coming year is to use up my fabric stash to make equal number of quilts blankies what ever I can for family and kids in need.

    I plan on retiring in the next calenadar year…what I look forward to most is spending time in my sewing room…it is one of the most relaxing things I do in life. I can’t wait to finish projects and start new ones. My only sewing table is from the 70′s, it is a table that has an adjustment for coming around the open arm…but it is very “used” looking now …really want a nice new table to keep my most prized position on. For christmas i have ask for an Ott light. my sewing room is my top priority.

    I love the white Sewnatra cabinet. I am planning on teaching my granddaughter how to sew soon. The learning would be so much easier and funner if we had our own machine to work on in my small sewing room. This cabinet would be ideal in my sewing room. Not too big, but very functional.

Plus one of her friends who is getting a machine. A sewing cabinet would be wonderful for the new craft room we are having added to the basement. Plenty of lighting and room to spread out. White would be perfect.

I have made many quilts since making my first quilt for my dorm room in 1980! Time flies when you’re having so much fun. I really enjoy making quilts for my nieces and nephews for graduation.

    I recently retired from teaching. During the last 12 years or so I started and didn’t finish many of my projects. So my goal for the next year is to work on an old project to finish it and also if I’d like to work on a new one too, either work on one from a class, $5 block~a~month, or project I’ve purchased over the years. It gives me great satisfaction when I get the last stitch in the binding and the label!! Thanks for the offer and Merry Christmas to all!

    In my years of sewing, I have yet to have a real sewing table, I have been using anything with a flat surface and as long as the sewing machine doesn’t vibrate. I would love to own a Sewnatra so I could really enjoy sewing and eventually pass it own to my dear granddaughter who is learning to sew now

    My interest in quilting began in 2011 when I joined the quilt group at Ronald Macdonald House in Cincinnati, OH.Beginning this year I joined craftsy Block of the Month class and pieced my first quilt top using the Urban Odyssey Fat Quarter and the 50 wt threads I bought from Connecting threads. I enjoyed it very much, so I joined Amy Gibson’s Sugar Block Club and my choice of fabrics is the classic dot collection in various colors. That is my goal for 2013. Thank you connecting threads for making it affordable for me to do what I like.

    Merry Christmas everyone. This year I started hand quilting a quilt I made for my son 20 years ago and am almost finished. His marriage this year was a push to get things completed. In 2013, I want to learn how to machine quilt, in hopes that it will help get some of my unfinished projects finished more quickly. I’ve never had a cabinet for my machine so I use my dining room table. What a wonderful Christmas surprise it would be to win an Arrow white compact cabinet. Good Luck to everyone and may all your dreams come true. Thank you Connecting Threads for this exciting giveaway!

    My one quilting goal for the New Year is to get much more “organized”. Our home flooded with Hurricane Isaac in Aug. and I lost a lot of my things, including much of my sewing, a sewing machine and a machine carrying case. I would LOVE to win this cabinet so I can hopefully get motivated to begin my quilting/sewing journey once again. In particular, I want to finish a quilt that my now deceased Dad cross-stitched every one of the 15 quilt pattern blocks that is going into this quilt. The cross-stitched blocks alone are all masterpieces and were created by my Dad when he was in his 70′s. I’ve been sewing/quilting since 1966. My choice of cabinets would be in the white finish.

  1298. Barbara Roberts Says:
    12/20/2012 7:48 pm

    I would like a white cabinet in order to sew a quilt for one of my favorite aunts. I have been doing a block of the month and am almost finished with it. She will be very surprised.

    One of my many quilting goals for the new year is to complete the lovely Pioneer Sampler quilt. Since my husband has graciously started transforming our tiny office into a sewing/crafting room for me, the very cute and compact Sewnatra cabinet would be a perfect and most welcome addition in either color. But, having to choose, I believe my little sewing machine would look quite cozy sitting upon a beautiful black finished Sewnatra cabinet. Thank you Connecting Threads!

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, so the cabnet in white would be great. This would be such a help, I have been unemployed since 2009 and funds are tight. Sewing, with the colors, helps me heal from depression. This would be a tool to help me get well and back to my old self.

    I am just starting out with quilting and have made 3 small quilts so far! I am still trying to figure out how to organize my sewing area, so I would be so grateful to have a Sewnatra in white (I love the name too!). My goals in the next year are to learn and improve as much as I can in the areas of piecing, machine quilting, and the history of quilting. I am also hoping to finish a queen size log cabin quilt I’ve been working on for a while using your lovely Charlottsville fabric.

    I want to make a “memory quilt” for my niece in the new year. I have some things from her mom I can use, and some interesting fabrics I have bought from Connecting Threads, so I am looking forward to this project! This cabinet would help me organize my supplies and white would be perfect. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Sewing and quilting are my favourite pass times! Sadly, with the demands of work and other responsibilities, I find it increasingly difficult to carve out the time to enjoy them!! My sewing room is sandwiched into our spare bedroom and does not allow room for me to leave projects out to “jump back into”. The Sewnatra cabinet (black) is beautiful and would fit perfectly in my living room, doubling as an end table when I’m not sewing. Having my sewing table and projects close at hand, would make it so easy for me to jump back into my sewing projects at night, after work and home responsibilities are tended to. Thank you for this opportunity to win this exciting gift and to fit sewing back into my life again!

    I love Connecting Threads — the fabric, thread, kits.
    All I need in my sewing room is a nice cabinet in white!
    Thank you for your website!

    I am a genetic memory quilter. Granny showed her love by making sure you had warm “bed cover”, which was one-of-a-kind hand-quilted quilts for everyone in her family. I connect with her when I’m quilting. She’s been gone 14 years and it’s wonderful to be able to feel her spirit in this way. Now quilting is how I love.
    My goal for the new year is to finish a 30s repro qullt for my husband and myself. Connecting Threads is my favorite catalog company-prices and quality are the best!

    I have always loved to sew, but became interested inquilting about 7 years ago – LOVE it! I’ve joined a guild and have learned a lot from the guild members,and would love to have a table to work on and store the machine in. What a wonderful work and storage space. I have bunches of kits to work on, and that would free up space to get more kits! It would be a wonderful birthday present (my birthday is Christmas Day!) I would love to own a white Sewnatra.

    12/21/2012 12:56 pm

    I would truly love the Sewnatra cabinet for my sewing room as it sure would help keep things in order!If I’m lucky enough to win,I would like it in white. I make doll clothes and small quilts for friends and the space it offers is terrific!

    I love these cabinets. Would like either color but would probably settle for the white set. I don’t have a black sewing machine.
    My goal for 2013 is to make 10 baby quilt tops for our group, Hearts and Hands. It is connected with Linus. We make quilts for hospitals, shelters and residences which house at risk pg girls and women. My goal is to quilt and finish 2 quilts a month.
    For myself I vow to finish one, just one UFO a month. I have two drawers full of incomplete projects and several boxes containing all the fabrics and patterns to complete bedsize quilts.
    A compact, organized sewing center is my dream.

  1332. Josefina Says:
    12/21/2012 1:32 pm

    What a great sewing cabinet that doubles as a side table. I want one for those days when my hubby wants me to sew in the family room while he’s watching TV. I think white looks great.

  1333. Faula Merkin Says:
    12/21/2012 1:33 pm

    The white sewing table would look great in the hobby room of my new house. I plan to complete some UFO wall hangings and make a quilt for the bed in the guest bed room.

  1334. Polly Bracht Says:
    12/21/2012 1:34 pm

    This cabinet would house an extra that is now in a cloth case. My extra machine would be great in a white cabinet and I could be sure one is working.

  1335. Josefina Says:
    12/21/2012 1:44 pm

    I forgot to post my goals for 2013. One is to complete a patriotic quilt I made for my son in 2005, the first year he deployed. He is mailing me all his old patches from Fort Stewart, GA so I can appliqué them on to the quilt before hand quilting it. Second is to finish the king-sized quilt I am making for my sister. The top is nearly done; I am just waiting on the fabric for the border. The blizzard is causing some delays. The third is to make time to learn how to free-motion quilt.
    The white sewing cabinet sure looks great!

  1336. Karen Spencer Says:

    I would love to win this sewing ensemble. I am planning on making a twin bed quilt of funny ladies with dogs that I call Georgina. I draw Georgina out and then digitize them. I then will embroider (by machine) onto material to make a wonderful fun quilt for my Granddaughter Stephanie who is 10. I winter in Florida and that is where I would be able to use this set as I am in a fifthwheel with not much room. The white cabinet would fit wonderfully well in the livingroom of my trailer and save a lot of space. Many thanks for the offer. Marjorie Kinsey

    My goal in 2013 is to finish some of my UFO’s although I am sure your kits will tempt me to do some new projects as well. I would also like to learn to Free motion quilt. I am from Canada, but the BLACK cabinet would be wonderful for our winter home in the US and could shipped here. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

    12/21/2012 6:10 pm

    I would love the white one. I am trying to make a quilt for each of my grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. It is something I can leave them that they could keep. They are looking forward to them and it would be so much easier if I had a sewing cabinet.

    I would like to make three quilts in my quilting group to donate to children with court-appointed advocates. I am relatively new to quilting and it takes me longer, so this is a goal worth shooting for. I would enjoy having the sewing cabinet, as I have two sewing machines and a serger. Black would match the conference table I am refinishing for my sewing/hobby room.

  1352. Judy Diers Says:
    12/21/2012 6:51 pm

    My goal this year, 2013, is to finish at least one of the quilts I’ve started, and to make up at least one quilt, that I have gathered all the fabrics for on a fun quilt hop. I’m learning how to paper piece, at a class I’ve signed up for. My past year has been filled with everything, but what I wanted to do. This is going to be my year, of fun and organinzing myself.

    I’ve just found out that within the next couple of months my husband’s mom will be coming to live with us. We will be combining our homes, so space will be limited and changes will be made. I’m going to work on a quilt to help make her new room special and welcoming. This cabinet will REALLY help with the reorganization of my work area. I hope I’m chosen!

  1366. Linda joy Says:

    Quilting goals for 2013 is to complete UFO’s, re-organize my craft room, and learn to say no to requests, so that I can enjoy my home and crafting time. The black cabinet would be my preference since it has a more modern look and I am trying to get away from the country look I have always had in the past.

    12/22/2012 2:18 pm

    My goal was to quilt when I retired. I am now retired and have started quilting bedspreads. They may not be 100% perfect, but I am not getting discouraged. The only problem I have is that my tools and stuff is scattered all over the place and that gets me frustrated. I would love to win this cabinet in brown so for once I can have all my things in one place.

    My goals for 2013 are to be more organized and to complete as many of my unfinished projects as I can. The white cabinet would help out greatly with both of these efforts. I belong to a small group that does a number of projects for charitable causes, so I have a tendency to finish those first.

  1398. Gretchen Sheridan Says:
    12/23/2012 5:11 pm

    Wow! This is so great for small homes and apartments. The white one is very light and helps make small spaces seem a bit less crowded. Living in a mobile home means that the sewing spaces are a bit spread out, taking much needed guest quarters. This would greatly help me to be more organized, to which my husband would say “Yay!”

  1399. Barbara Says:
    12/23/2012 5:56 pm

    My goal in 2013 hopefully is to get more organized & finish all the quilt kits I purchased from Connecting Threads. The sewing cabinet will definitely help to bring my chaos to an end. Thank you for the opportunity to win…would love the white cabinet.

    I have a big goal for 2013. First in line are 4 charity quilts to FMQ. then finish lots of UFO’s and quilt another 10 tops that I have waiting. I think a lovely white cabinet with all the organization of it
    would keep me on track for this year.

  1402. Martha Stuart Says:
    12/23/2012 8:02 pm

    I started quilting a year ago and got hooked. I have done some lap quilts for gifts and my goal is to finish numerous UFOs. I may have bit off more than I can chew because I am in three quilt groups. Some work/fun is done for personal use and some charitable. I am 68 years young and am really enjoying myself. I would love the black cabinet to go in our bedroom as our furniture is black and the cabinet is such a nice size. Congrats to the winner – hope it is me!!!
