  2. Hi Mimi, I have already subscribed and liked you on FB, so I have met those mandatory requirements. If I won the $100.0,0 I would use it to purchase all of your tutorials and to take a sewing class, and if anything is left, buy some more patterns. Patterns have been my acheles heel, so I am trying to use as many as I can to learn more. Have a great day.

  10. It would go to my "New Used Car Fund". My son was abused at day care so I began to homeschool him sacrificing making my own money and having to give up my care. Now that he is school age I have been struggling to get back into the workforce and saving to buy a car so that I can take him to school and participate in his PTA. It's painful to not be able to be hands on in his academic journey, but I know if I keep working at it, things will turn around for us...kelasia325@gmail.com

  14. What will I do with $100 gift card? Hmmm, let's see. Sept is the most expensive month for moms having to buy school supplies, school clothes, school pictures, etc. Multiply that times 5 for me. My birthday is Oct 4. I think if I got $100 gift card I would just have to spend it on me for my birthday gift to myself- maybe add a few pieces to my fall wardrobe.

  24. My name is Jemima McPherson and I would use the $100 to buy some much needed clothes and shoes for myself. I am a mother of two girls (5 and 2 years old) and most of my pay check goes towards making sure that they're good! I work 45-50 hours a week from my home office and hardly even have the time to go out so the outfit and shoes I buy would be used for a very special date night with my hubby who's birthday is coming up. With all of my current expenses like ballet, jazz, recent school supplies, organics (we try to eat as healthy as possible) I have had to sacrifice some of the extra's for me so this would be a nice surprise! Thanks for the opp!

  30. I would purchase my son a new suit....You see, this week is homecoming week and he was selected to represent his freshman football team for the homecoming court. Unfortunately, it came at a very inopportune time. My son and I compiled a 'fit' that will have him looking pretty daper however, I know he would have much rather had something new. Being the humble person he is, he grumbled not once. So although homecoming will be over, with a gift card, I would go ahead and purchase that suit. :-)....He is my first born and my BFF what can I say.

  77. I am a fashion design student in my last year of college. We have a fashion show coming up and I want my entry to be the best I have ever created.

Great fabrics and other necessary things to bring my vision to life and finish out my college career with a bang!

I do know that I would take a small portion and buy as much fleece fabric as I could and make some comfy Pjs for my family. We love being cozy and snuggling and sometimes staying in our Pjs all day. :) your give aways are so awesome, you seem like such a sweet woman and love what you do.

    Let me think...if I win I'm going to do something for myself. As a mom you know how that is(no complaints, we do it because we love them!). I'm torn between putting towards my "big girl" sewing machine($499) or go to the mall a purchases a staple piece for fall.

    Either way this contest is an amazing opportunity. Thank for inspiring us to think outside the box. Whether we take your style and build on it or we're motivated to come outside of ourselves and create our own I think we all would agree that you've had a hand in it!

    Thanks Mimi G.!!!

I recently purchased the maxi w/sash tutorial from you, as well as these patterns: New Look 6123 Misses' Dress, Vogue V1314 Misses' Dress, and B7195 Burda Style Pants. The current issue is that now I NEED to get some FABRIC! lol Please help. I currently already follow your FB page, twitter account, just subscribed to received email, and just signed up for rss feeds on google reader. I love fashion and spend loads of time browsing the web looking for inspiration. Either way, thanks for your blog! It's pretty darn fab! -Taahira

  123. I would high tail it to Hancock Fabrics and buy nothing for sewing notions and supplies, stuff I never dreamed of buying but I will just to try new sewing projects.

  124. I absolutely love love love your style. I've subscribed to your FB for a while now & love to see what new fashion you will have on. I can't sew to say my life, I tried many years ago & sucked!!! My mom who is a phenomenal seamstress LOL, @ me when she tried to teach me because I almost sewed my fingeers together. But despite all that I am a fashion junkie, and surprisingly this junkie would not spend the money on herself! I know utter shock!!! If I was to win, I'd spend the money on my 17 yr old son, who is a senior in highschool and has mad style & swag like me!:-) The only problem is, he won't say when he needs new clothes because he's seen me sacrifice for so long, that he now sacrifices for me! So if I was to win, I'd let him use the money to increase his closet & not my own.

  129. Dear Mimi,
    First of all CONGRATULATIONS on your increased traffic/followers. ;)

    As for the giveaway, I would be so grateful to win the $100.00 prize your sponsoring. I have been looking to purchase a sewing table due to me presently situation of having to clear the dining room table just to sew in which case with the size of the table it does not allow for any room whatsoever when constructing your garment together. If I was the winner, I would use the prize money to purchase a table immediately so I can sew longer and with some much need ease truly enjoy sewing more. This is a wonderful giveaway - thank you for sponsoring.

    Best Regards always Mimi - Lisa (lamotoguzzi@yahoo.com)

  130. Hi Mimi. I've been a follower of yours from the beginning. I love what you do and I am so glad that you unselfishly share your wonderful talent and love of fashion with so many. Win or lose, I committed until you close your blog down.
    I have been unemployed since February. Not having disposable income to spend on a few yards of fabric just because it would give me pleasure to do so can be a bit depressing. Not that I need any more fabric in my life. LOL. All things considered, I am doing okay. If I won this generous giveaway, I would buy a fabulous pair of shoes in either magenta, cobalt blue or emerald green. Yes, I would be absolutely frivolous!

  136. Hi MiMi

    If I was selected to win the $100, I would use the money to put towards my first sewing machine. I have been pricing machines, and looking up classes in my area. You have definitely been an inspiration for me to LEARN how to sew.

  137. I'm a new mom so my baby comes first 50-60% of it will be spent on my son. I mean you can't have too many diapers, outfits or breast-milk storage bags lol. Plus whatever else he needs. And you know I can't neglect myself so maybe a pair of shoes, one or two hair products, maybe a few pieces of clothing. Or maybe a pattern from you because I'm in love with the maxi skirt with a sash. But then again, IDK if I would have time to make it so I think all in all I would just head to the mall...no some online stores since its kind tedious to bring a 4 month old to the mall! Either way it will be spend properly (^_^)

  138. Hello Mimi. Since I am a fashion marketing major, I would use 50.00 to apply for my bachelors degree in fashion design then I would use the remaining to purchase your tutorials. I really enjoy your site and your daughters site. Both of you guys really inspire me my sister introduced me to your site a few weeks back and ever since then I have been making skirts pants and shirts. Thank you and continue to inspire people around the world. Grace &Peace

  148. I would use a $100 gift card to buy a sewing machine so I could start doing some DIY.

  149. Hi Mimi,

    Congrats for the success!!! I so enjoy reviewing your blog everyday. Your style has truly been an inspiration to me because as a mother of a two year old girl I am always on the go and just don't take the time to put pieces together. With your blog I've become inspired and the simplest things as adding a ring or bracelet to my wardrobe has brighten up my day! What I would do with the money selfishly is get a massage. Take some much deserved me time so I can be as good as new for everyone around me.

    Thanks,
    Sophie S.

  161. I have been toying with the idea of sewing my own clothes for a while now, when I came across your lovely DIY maxi + DIY wrap top, I decided I'm MUST start sewing! I researched a sewing class at the local college that is $105 and I'm signing up. If I won the gift card, the money would go towards the beginning of my DIY addiction. A big thank you to sharing your photos and inspiring me to finally take the plunge.

  162. Hi Mimi! I'm a new follower, and I love your posts. I would use the $100 to buy fabric and notions to make some clothes (and maybe a purse) for myself! I recently found a pattern on ebay for a knit cardi that you've reviewed which I just love, and now all I need is to get my hands on some fabric to make some. I also have high hopes to get better with my sewing so I can do more advanced clothing like pants - some of the pants you've shown on your blog which you've made have really inspired me.

  163. i remember when i found your page a few months ago! So happy for you! love your style and continue the good work! God bless!

  168. If I won I would use the money to buy a sewing machine. Along with your DIY tutorials I will use it to help the Group Home that i work for start a class for the women who are interested in sewing. The women here are around my age (30) but because they're on limited fixed incomes due to their mental health they cannot always afford to buy new clothes. They always admire the way I look and I wish that I could help them. I think this would be an excellent way to show them how to value what they have and let them know that they could still be stylish even on a budget. Our self image is heavily rooted in how we look and winning this gift card would go miles in helping improve the image of these women.

  177. I would use it by fabric and supplies. I received a sewing machine for Christmas, but have been too intimidated by it to really use it for anything. So it's sat collecting dust since then. But I watched your tutorial for the skirt and decided, surely a hem would not do me in. The hem is far from perfect, but I did it. I realized I afraid of a lot of things, but you have personally influenced my new mantra for life. "I'm no longer afraid anymore".

  178. Hi Mimi,
    I have recently started reading your blog and following you on facebook, so this is pretty exciting now to be able to win a gift card. I first saw your meet up on you tube and I got hooked. I made a maxi from a regular dress pattern I had because of your videos. I have been inspired and I thank you for that. If I won the gift card I would actually buy some fabric of my choice since everything I have has been given to me to learn with and I feel so guilty going out and buying new while I have this to use lol.
    I wouldn't feel guilty if I had a gift card!

    ReplyDelete
  179. Hi Mimi,
    First of all I would like to say thank you for being such an inspiration to many. As a young girl growing up my mom would make clothing for my sister and I. Over the course of my life my mom has conquered many illnesses ranging from 3 back surgeries, brain surgery, 16 year breast cancer survivor and a recent overcomer of 2 strokes in less than month. My mom has always been my inspiration and though she does sew anymore due to vision and mobile complications from the strokes, it would be an honor to honor her sewing hobby by learning to sew. If I win the gift card I would definitely purchase your tutorials and purchase fabrics. My mom still has her machine and has given the rights to use to perfect something that she loved to do so much.

  186. I would definitely get my two sisters something extra nice for Christmas, especially the older of the two, my mum, is a single mother of three and I know she can't do everything and can't give us everything she would want to. My sisters are teenagers, and "girly girls" so I know at times they can only want, but can't get. So that would be my gift to them, as big sis. THERE IS NOTHING MORE SATISFYING THAN GIVING AND SEEING THE LOOK OF HAPPINESS ON SOMEONE'S FACE.

  187. Hi Mimi!!! I woulud use the $100 toward a new sewing machine that I have been eyeing for a while. I have an old singer model now that I used to learn on but it would be graet to have a new one that's not failing apart. LOL

  188. Thanks to my mother who I’ve inherited a gift and fashion for DIY clothes. After seen all your skillful ideas and tricks to bring new life to old clothes I thank you. If I won’t the $100 I would invest it on my daughter’s clothes since she’s growing everyday sum clothes doesn’t fit her in a few weeks. As well as doing a few adjustments in my clothes as well :) thank you again and keep blogging.
