    This is the time of the yr. my heart swells with good feelings for all my friends and family. I run to my sewing machine and make personal gifts . Many are from left overs from larger projects. Receivers love them and I feel so good about paring down my stash! Happy Holidays to all

  2. Debby says:

    Christmas is my absolute favorite! I love to decorate inside and outside – my grandson just asked me when I was going to set the “Christmas Wonderland”! I love give presents too – especially hand made ones.
    Happy Holidays and thanks for the chance to win! ;~)

  3. GrannyH says:

    It’s a time to count my blessings and be thankful, even for the bad times, for without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

  4. connie says:

    I love the holiday season, the Santa in me really comes out and I start making things for everyone I know. My friends look forward to the “goodie” bags they get every year with all the home made items. The little “sew on the go” and the pin cushions are wonderful gifts for all my quilting friends.

  5. Bonnie Booy says:

    I all the houses decorated in beautiful lights that shimmer in the snow, and I like gingerbread cookies!

  6. Shelley Ingram says:

    Family getting together for great food and festive cheer are a few of my favorite things during the holidays!

  7. darla biederman says:

    I love the holiday season! It gives me a chance to spend time with family and to ponder and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love the warm feeling I get when I do something to help someone who never sees my face or knows my name.

  8. Deb Jochim says:

    The Christmas Holidays always take me back to when my grandparents were still here. Grandpa loved Santa, the whole decorating thing. It wasn’t about the gifts really – it was all about family, laughing, chasing Peaches the poodle around the house and grandma’s turkey dinner and stuffing! Wish I could go back about 45 years and relieve those days!

  9. mary ann johnson says:

    I enjoy the holidays and decorating. We have purchased new ornaments over the years and have over 500 and most of them are on the tree. I enjoy looking at the decorations as we drive around time and have Christmas music on the radio and have gotten the grandkids to enjoy this too.

  10. Nancy Stokaluk says:

    i love the art of giving, and surprises of glee on my friends and family. I enjoy making gifts the most, as they are so much more endeared by the person receiving. One of a kind gifts. Especially quilts..

  11. I love being with my family on the holidays and watching how much the grandchildren enjoy it!

  12. Mary Burn says:

    I love Christmas because that was the day my daughter was born many years ago. I love making things for her and her daughter and the rest of my family. We never forget “the reason for the season” and that is truly a blessing. Thanks for including me in your giveaway.

  13. Sue says:

    I love being with family, and watching over the years as the family grows and new members are present. Plus, now that I quilt I enjoy making gifts too!

  14. Pauline Gudas says:

    I love that people seem to be more compassionate to others. Wish that it would last the whole year. It is so wonderful to see and do good deeds for the less fortunate.

  15. Debbie says:

    I love thinking about the true meaning of Christmas while I am making things to give to my family and friends and seeing the happiness those gifts bring them. I also love taking out the decorations and ornaments that my Mother and children gave to me in the past and remembering those special times. Thanks for the chance to win this special prize!

  16. Carol says:

    I like the quiet moments and extra time spent with my Sweetheart the best. He’s been working out of the country and gets to be home with me for the Holidays.

  17. barbara blair says:

    I love decorating and getting together with family and friends.

  18. Patricia Davis says:

    I love everything about Christmas. But the thing I love the most is the happiness, smiles and joy during the holiday season.

  19. Margaret Karnatz says:

    I like the Holidays because our family gets together and the shopping and preparing for Christmas is a lot of fun.

  20. Bonnie Allison says:

    I love to give hand made items for Christmas. I work with children in the foster care system and I delight in their faces when they get a hand made quilt for their own to keep for a lifetime. Some of these children will never have another item like this to take with them.

  21. DeAnn says:

    I love the lights and decorations of the holiday season. From houses lit in elegant white all around to multicolor gingerbread house lights, they make me smile and ooh and ahh like fireworks.

  22. TxGal says:

    There are SO many things I love about the holidays, but the thing I love MOST is just spending time with family and friends, especially those that we can’t see often during the year. I can do without presents and a lot of the holiday hoopla, but I can’t do without good memories of time spent with loved ones.
    Thanks for the chance to win !

  23. Mimi says:

    I seem to spend more time with “the memories” at this time of year- of my past Christmases and of my children as they grew.

  24. Adele Hoyt says:

    I love all the crafty darling items to make for the home or to give to family and friends. The creativity of the season is what makes it fun and exciting! Your buttons are awesome!!

  25. I love the peaceful, loving feeling I get when I have my family home for Christmas.
    Gotta love all the food, fun and laughter!

  26. Orlie Severson says:

    My favorite thing to do during this time of year is to make something I haven’t tried. I love to make make Christmas decorations for my tree. And I LOVE BUTTONS!!!!!!!! I have since I was a kid. I even made a Wall hanging with buttons as the main feature. Glad to have found you.

    I love seeing family.

  29. Sheryl Miller says:

    I recall my daughter’s birthday. She was an unexpected Christmas present as she was 3 weeks premature.

  30. DianeH says:

    I love decorating the house with all the quilted goodies I’ve made and have been given over the years. It’s wonderful to see them again.

  31. Aurea Gillis says:

    I love the family gatherings and all the festivities that go with the season.

  32. Elizabeth Kuntz says:

    What’s not to love about the Christmas season!!! It’s so festive and people (most people) are happiest at this time of year. I think because we’re busy thinking of how to make other people happy this time of year through gift giving. I love Christmas!!!

  33. Dortha says:

    I love all the pretty decorations. Such pretty colors and sights.

  34. JoAnne T. says:

    Both of our children come for a visit, what’s not to like? I love all the pretty colored lights on people’s houses and I love Christmas ornaments! I don’t think I will ever have enough ornaments, I buy them every time I see any!

  35. Debbie Robertus says:

    I love the creativity of lighting on houses. It seems neighborhoods just come to life with lights on the houses and decorations on the front lawn. Makes a neighborhhod seem more friendly!

  36. Jeanne says:

    I love getting together with family. Creating new memories and enjoying past traditions.

  37. Lorraine says:

    I love sewing Christmas gifts for friends and family. And making charity quilts to brighten the holidays for children in our community.

  38. Wilma says:

    I enjoy putting the Christmas quilts on all the beds, hanging my quilted Christmas wall hangings, placing the quilted Christmas table runner on the dining room table, with the Christmas place mats, and arranging my Christmas pillows on the sofa.
    Then I will enjoy through the season all my creations which make the house look so festive. Then I’ll return to my sewing machine to finish the quilts which will be gifts under the tree for my sons.

  39. Mary says:

    I love all the wonderful family time. After that, I love the decorations – in stores, the lights down Main Street, Christmas trees, wreaths on doors, all around the house, and, of course, quilts!

  47. Valerie A. Clark says:

    I won’t have to be an Early Morning Taxi Service. :)

  48. Lynn J says:

    I love the new fabrics so I can make pillowcases for the holidays. Pillowcases also make it a good way to wrap presents( large quilts) and makes it a good way to store them.

  49. Catherine Beyers says:

    I appreciate the kindness and generosity of friends, co-workers, and even strangers during the holiday season! Smiles go a long way to open the door to happiness.

  50. Beverly Atkins says:

    I love the feeling in the air – the feeling that should last all year. The feeling that allows a policeman to provide shoes for a homeless man. The feeling that makes you drop your change (or more) in the pot where the bell rings. The feeling you see on a child’s face when they see Santa (if they are not afraid!). The feeling is there in the air, we just need to breath it in!

  51. Nancy Vannerson says:

    For me, this year, it will be upholding the baking traditions of my mom and sharing those with the people I love, my family. She made the most fabulous cookies and Sugarplum bread. I will also be spending it with all my new friends at a miniature/craft club I joined. Its a ball! Keep up the good work JABC! Happy Holidays!

  52. Kathy B says:

    The best thing about the Holidays is spending time with family!

  53. I love getting together with our family which is now becoming so spread out geographically. This year we’ll be visiting our DS and hiking will be involved.

    I LOVE the buttons, pins, and felt kits!

  54. Rhona Norrie says:

    I love everything about the holidays, but especially that people are thinking of others instead of themselves.
    Thanks for the chance at an awesome giveaway.

  55. Diane Antle says:

    Christmas is my Lord’s birthday! I love all the natvity scenes! I guess I just love this time of year the music, lights, decorations and of course all the shopping!

  56. Kathy Papciak says:

    I love the lights and the music of this time of year.

  57. Kd B says:

    I love the colors, smells, and sounds of the holiday season the best. Red and green and gold…hot spiced cider and cookies and fir trees…fun and happy Christmas music…all of these create a time of year unlike any other. Happy Holidays!

  58. Wilma says:

    For me it’s the light in the dark days. Coming together with your family, cooking, baking, enyoing together with candles and good food and wine.

  59. Karen Crowell says:

    My favorite of the Christmas season is knowing that Jesus was born to save me.

  60. Pamela Reim says:

  66. Pat D. says:

    Oh, family and friends over for the Holidays!

  68. fatima lima says:

    I love Christmas, because I remember when I was younger
    , and I really believe in Santa. He still lives in my heart …

  69. Of course, Christmas crafts, but also setting up my Christmas village.

  70. I love time spent with my family . I like to see the look on their faces when we actually surprise them with a Christmas gift. Important too, is sharing the Christmas Eve service at our church with family and friends giving thanks for all we have and saying Happy Birthday to Jesus.

  71. Chris says:

    I love that we have a chance to give gifts of gratitude to our postal workers, sanitation workers, and paper carriers. So they know they are appreciated.

  72. K B Parnell says:

    How can there be only one “best” thing?? EVERYTHING about the season is wonderful…so long as you NEVER forget that JESUS is the reason for the season!! Gifts come in all sizes and shapes, people and places, times and traditions…being thankful for every moment that is a gift, and realizing that everything one does, no matter how small, if done in love, is a gift in and of itself, is the key to helping create and enjoy this season, the best season, every day.

  73. Madeline says:

    what I like best is the fact that for a while, MOST people are trying to be in a good mood, and while some are having frantic, hectic times, the rest are more forgiving, as we all have our bad days. It just seems to be a bit more generous time. And isnt that the spirit of it after all?

  74. Anne C. says:

    I enjoy revisiting memories from the past that are tied to treasured decorations and get-togethers with family and friends.

  75. Rachael D. says:

    I love everything about the holidays. I enjoy seeing my tree all up and decorated and I also enjoy seeing the lights whenever I go anywhere. My favorite thing though is gift giving. I love to be able to find that perfect gift for someone just to see that joy on their face.

  76. Irene Bowie says:

    I like how people treat one another also how awesome quilting and craft projects I can do and so many out there!

  77. I love having my kids home and opening our handmade gifts that we exchange

  78. debra m zukowski says:

    i love the colors, the lights, the crafts and the quilts. i love sharing my joy with my grandaughters and seeing the joy, fun, excitement and wonder in there eyes. i love to find out what surprises are in store for me when santa comes to town. i love the upbeat music, some old and some new and i love the good intensions and gifts that are extended to those we don’t know.
    i love the effort people put into giving and the joy from it. i love that god chose to share his son with us.
    god bless,
    debi z

  90. Margo Akamine says:

    Christmas in Hawaii is not a typical Christmas with cold weather but we still celebrate in style! I love to decorate and enjoy our family getting together. Now that we have two three year old grandchildren, Christmas is even more fun and special!

    I am a beginning quilter and love to shop for fabric. The buttons, pins and other items shown above are irresistibly cute! The website is going on my favorites list!

  91. Susan Novak says:

    I love celebrating with the family on Christmas Eve and in-laws on Christmas Day.

  92. Christal Lacombe says:

    I love the family feeling. The family does not have the time or the opportunites due to everyone’s work schedules. Christmas is the one time that every one books off and make sure to be able to be home. All of us together and having fun and swapping stories, eating, drinking… and just being together. That’s my favorit part of Christmas.

  93. Rebecca says:

    I’m always thinking of my children but at the holidays there’s just a bit more ‘thinking’ to do. I live in Texas, my daughter and grandkiddos in Montana and youngest son in New York but I do have my oldest son about 35 miles away which I am so thankful for. So, while making placemats, tablerunners, new ‘French Rustic’ Christmas stockings, two Abbey pincushions, bunches of ‘mug rugs’…I am remembering and loving those I hold so dear to my heart. That’s what I like about the holidays…it warms my heart!

  94. I love making and buying surprises for my family, and decorating my house.

  95. Marty Askins says:

    What I love about Christmas is enjoying family get togethers and all the fun that goes along with it. I love making new stuff to decorate the house with for Christmas. Thank you for the chance to win.

  96. Lori Mahar says:

    The best part of the holidays for me is just getting together with family and friends, some of whom I don’t get to see any other time.

  97. Laura Valdez says:

    The Christmas holiday has been hard for me since my Mom died 3 years ago. She did so much of the holiday baking and made Christmas so very special of each one of us. Sew, this year I am going to get back into the Christmas spirit and bring back to the family the joy her baking brought to us.

  98. Roberta Upton says:

    I love family traditions being used year after year, family close and remembering those no longer with us.

  99. suzy perez says:

    It’s been 34 years since my kids were little ones and now I have 2 grandchildren. One boy and One girl. I am drawn to the toy department these days. I am in the process of making holiday treasures that they will surely love. Christmas is Love and Love is Grandbabies!! Love decorating for the joy of seeing the delight in their faces..

  100. Marie says:

    Holidays haven’t been easy for me since my son passed away 3-1/2 years ago at the age of 22. What has helped me to enjoy this time again is my grandchildren that have come along in since that then. I love sewing, decorating and cooking for them and my daughters. I spent this past year making full sized quilts for my daughters and ABC quilts for my granddaughters for Christmas.
