    I love the normal YouTube channel and subscribed to the new one the first time it was mentioned on FB. I have used a couple of tutorials on (the main channel) youtube and posted @ hashtagged you on Instagram. Thanks for replying & liking!!

    (Also, this is probably not the place, but you have a yellow subscribe banner that is on this webpage without a way to x it out that makes it really hard to read the page or do the rafflecopter on my phone, which I must do while travelling. Something to think about. Thanks )

  • Judy

    Looking forward to your tutorials.

    I’d love to see tutorials about making half square triangles, sewing together shapes that really don’t line up nicely – like tumblers, isosceles triangle in a square, tips for putting together blocks when the units aren’t quite the right size (& not too far off that you should have ripped & resewed the unit), improv bed quilts, scrap quilt ideas. Thanks for the chance!

    It is exciting to get to know you. I have never watched you on you tube, but excited to see what you have in store for all of us.

  • Marie

    I am excited about CG and MSQC teaming up for a new channel. I’ve already visited and plan to make reversible head bands as gifts!

    How to bind quilts by machine — I am getting better but could use a few tips, if you have them.

    I would love to see more ideas for quick gifts that are useful. Love the headband! Also, would love to see free motion quilting. I have a hard time with larger quilts since I don’t have a long arm.

  • Linda Johnson Gillian

    I am so excited that you are teaming with Missouri Star Quilt Company! I am looking forward to great things in the future!

  • Nikki

    I love your tutorials, especially the ones for beginners! I know a lot of the new videos use pre-cuts, but I often buy my fabric by the yard, so I prefer those tutorials. 🙂

  • Kathy

    I really enjoy when you do your block by block quilt. Time for a new one??? Great videos…Congrats on your new endeavor with MSQ.

    • Badriya


      If you could make a video on what we can and can’t do with the MSQC and your patterns and designs that would be swell. Like, can we sell items we made using the tutorials on sites like Etsy or our own website, or is it for personal use only?



  • Michelle

    I would like to see quilt tutorials using different precuts from the same color ways. I’ve purchase from MSQC quite a few time and have lots of precuts I love but, no patterns to use these precut layer cakes, charms, and jelly rolls in the same quilt. Thanks

  • Nancy Makela

    Congrats on the new channel, its about time you got noticed. Loved the head band project, have already made one.

  • Mardi

    Would love a tutorial on binding a quilt totally by machine. Or if not that, then hand sewing the binding on the back, specifically showing corners.

  • Sharon

    I’m really excited to see what you and Jenny will be doing!

    Perhaps you could do a tutorial about working with different types of fabrics and which needles, threads, stitch lengths, etc. would work the best for that type of fabric.

  • Kim Turner

    I would love to see a tutorial for maybe Free Motion Quilting, but not on a long arm if that makes sense…

  • Lisa Cowell

    Well, since I have watched ALL of both yours and Jenny’s youtube tutorials, I would love to see just about anything you teach. I do just about every craft available, but right now am concentrating on quilting and CP soap. I have also done a lot of research on spinning and weaving, and would like to see your take on those things, but since you have never done either of those, perhaps they are not something you really like. Maybe some free-motion tutorials for a domestic machine?

  • Tracy

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway! I would love to see more small hand bags or totes. I love small purse type bags but can never find the right one.

  • Pam s

    I would love to see a tutorial on basting a large quilt. Thanks for the fun! I have seen many of your videos, and I love your teaching style!

  • Jackie Papallo

    Congratulations on all your exciting new endeavors! Can’t wait to see your new videos and newsletters! Love your recent Juki reviews as I have a 600 and now want to play on that new serger!

      I’d like to see fabric storage & care tips. Also more batik quilts with hand quilting would be fabulous.

  • Janet in ND

    I’d like to see tutorials showing how to do the Big Stitch popular in quilting. Any projects that can be done in less than an hour that are useful and can be given as gifts would be great, too. Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  • Ann

    Congrats, Vanessa! I’m sharing the new channel everywhere I can think of!
    As for a tutorial; I would love to see a crocheting tutorial, basics, and maybe knitting.
    Have fun on this new adventure- I can’t wait to join in on the ride! 🙂

  • Sue

  • Joni Sommerer

    I love anything that’s easy enough to share with my 10-year-old niece who is learning to sew. The reversible headband is PERFECT. 🙂

  • Pam

    I love your fabric items that are useful, such as the headbands, boxes, tote bags, etc. I love to quilt, but I would much rather sit down at my sewing machine and make an item in an hour or two and have it finished and ready to use. More items like that, especially for kids, would be great.

  • Michelle

    Id like to see some tutorials about sizes and best fabrics to use to create quilts for hopsitals. Lap Quilts, Baby quilts for preemies, and for those that passed. While I do have my own idea, its always good to see another idea.

    Id also like to see quilted games….checkers, tic tac toe….etc.

    And my son would love to watch and have me make a Minecraft quilt

  • Brenda D

    i am self taught with the sewing machine and a beginner. So I am always looking for simple and short projects. I also work on making gifts and costume related things. Like belts and customizing clothes. Thanks.

    Besides nice big comfy quilts I think maybe some small things that would be fast for gift giving

  • April K

    Love all your tutorials, would love to see more tutorials on things to make for my kids. 🙂

  • Lela

    I love to watch all tutorials – you never know when a specific technique or design will come in handy! Right now I have lots of people asking me for ideas for weddings and gifts. I would also love to see more ideas of fun but useful crafts for around the house, and maybe some ideas for unique apparel and accessories.

  • Darlene Jacolik

    Just learned about your videos. I’m trying to get a head start on holiday gifts, so I.m looking for quick gift tutorials.

    There are a TON of products that I’d love to see you try out. Fabric paints and printable iron-ons etc. It would be fun to see you work with them from the beginning. Not just after you figure it all out, but from opening the package – so we can get an idea of how successful and accessible different items are.

    As a newish sewist I love watching your video’s for ideas, tips, tricks and technique’s. I don’t have a specific request as I find I learn something that I can apply in all of them.

  • Dawna Morrell

    I hope a new quilter/crafter wins this giveaway! It is an awesome one to start out with! Thanks for sharing!

  • Melissa

    I’d love to see a tut on the fabric baskets I’ve seen posted. I’d love to make some for organization for homeschooling since we’ve recently drastically downsized.
    I’d also like some general beginner sewing tuts–like hemming or working with different fabrics. Thanks so much Vanessa!!

  • Brooke


    I have recently begun learning leathercraft, so any tutorials along those lines would be awesome! Especially if the leather us paired with fabric in a project.

    Can’t wait to see all the craftiness you have up your sleeve!

  • Michele

    As a fellow crafter I am always excited to see what others are creating. Your techniques are very similar to mine–straight to the point! Thank you for keeping it simple.

    I have seen other suggestions on here that I too want to do and see so I will copy theirs! I would like to see a car trash bag/container that is easy to clean! And fabric baskets are in the works for me so if you do a tut on that before I do mine-I will task away with you.

    P.S. Your little girl is ADORABLE and sassy!

  • Kelie

    I have TONS of bits and pieces of cute material. Any craft that can be created with that would be delightful. (BTW I’m talking about palm sized pieces to 1 yd or so) I love practical things that aren’t just cute, but will be used, too. Thanks.

    Christmas ornaments in July! I belong to an ornament exchange and have to start making them early to get them all made. Something sewn/quilted is preferred, but not required 🙂

  • Carie Collette

    Kids p.j.’s, I can make the sleep pants but am intimidated by an easy sleep top or long shirt nighty in cotton or jersey fabric.

  • Susan Weaver

    I would love to see a tutorial on how to pick out fabric at the fabric store. I am pretty new at quilting and I get so overwhelmed when I walk into a fabric store to try to pick things that work together, being organized before I go, etc. I love pre-cuts, but yardage is usually cheaper. Help!

  • juli
