    Wow – looks like the same person scooped the first 4 prizes; what a superb pre-Christmas present to get. There were so many absolutely gorgeous entries. As Sandy says everybody entering are winners because they inspire the non-entrants like myself so Thank You very much to Nancy for creating this opportunity and to everybody who entered and inspired others.

    Although the winners are gorgeous, perhaps next year you could limit the contest to one entry per person/phone no./email?

    All the entries were beautiful. . .therefore all were winners in my book! Congratulations to the prize winners. A big thank you to Nancy for hosting the contest and providing such generous prizes! Merry Christmas, everyone! Now, grab a cookie (or two), some egg nog, and get back to the sewing machine where your projects are waiting!

    Just goes to show there are a lot of talented people out there. Happy holidays to all.

    CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!!! It would have been nice if there was only one chance for a person to win instead of the same person winning multiple prizes. I hope there is also a some thought put into the contest being judged by a panel of SEWERS instead of by the followers and friends of a contestant. GREAT work SEWERS!!!

    Enjoyed all of the sewers who took the time to make and create their stockings. A big thank you to Nancy for making the contest available to all, especially for the great prizes.

    Thank you so much for hosting the Second Annual Christmas Stocking Sewing Challenge. The talent exhibited in the photos submitted to this event was extraordinary. However, I wish there was the ability to enlarge the thumbnails so we could truly enjoy the quality of the remarkable workmanship presented. Such a small percentage of entries have workable links to view a larger picture on Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook.
    I totally agree with Veronica’s comments about the judging by a panel of SEWERS and there being only one opportunity to win a prize instead of one person winning multiple prizes. Perhaps not showing the total number of votes until the contest closes would be more appealing too.
    CONGRATULATIONS to everyone participated in this challenge.

    I agree with Veronica’s and Dee’s comments. This was a popularity contest and not a sewing contest. When I read a recommendation that various social medias should be involved in voting, I knew there was no chance in my entry even being considered for a hopeful prize. Also where would we be if Nancy’s directions to any of her projects were presented to us in blurry vision? That is what was shown with each thumbnail photo. I was hopeful that they would be changed into the original photos we all presented and even made a private message requesting that happen before voting. I am not a poor sport in my comments here. Perhaps if contests are held in the future that it is on equal playing fields to everyone entering the contest. So many of the photos were indistinguishable as to detailed workmanship.

    I agree with Connie and Dee and it does look like the same person received the first four prizes. I had a really hard time trying to enter. One of your staff members finally helped therefore I only entered one stocking. And, like Jill suggested maybe only one per person would be more fair to all. I hope you had an amazing Christmas and I pray 2016 will be a healthy, happy and fulfilling year for you and your family and staff.
