    I would like to learn to hand stitch. I’ve heard it is not hard, but I’m intimidated. =)

    For me, there’s room for LOTS of improvement on all sewing techniques but I’m most puzzled by foundation paper piecing.

  • Ella says...

    Definitely FMQ. I’m terrible at it.

    Well, I’d love to learn applique. I’ve tried a few times and I don’t think I’ve found the right method for me.

    Free motion quilting. I’ve tried once or twice, but it didn’t come out very well so I got discouraged and haven’t tried again. Thanks for the giveaway!

    There are just so many, I think being able to do applique really well would be nice though.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Bethany Martini says...

    Machine binding, I tried it once and it didn’t work out so great. I am going to use your binding tutorial next time!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Sherry says...

    As a participant of the skillbuilder, I am determined to figure out piece-lique. It is driving me batty how tricky I find it when it seems soooo simple.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Wendy says...

    Oooh what a gorgeous collection of fabric!! I really need to join a club to get more colours. When I go into a fabric store I just buy what I like willy nilly, but I should really check my stash and fill in the colour blanks instead!! I’d love to learn machine paper piecing, I don’t know why, but I just don’t get it!
    I always enjoy your blog Alyssa, thanks for all the valuable tips and tutorials.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Anna K says...

    I’d like to learn more hand-piecing/hand sewing stuff for the summer so I can get out of the house and keep sewing! I’m never in the mood for yarn in the summer…:(
