And the winner is...

I've been out of town for the last week and was amazed to come back and see all of the comments piled up on the sewing machine giveaway post. Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting! There were so many great stories that it was hard for me to choose, but ultimately I decided that the winner is...

In my heart I really wanted to find someone who was brand new at sewing but who clearly had a passion for it. It was also important for me to find someone who didn't have a machine yet. I remember what a big investment it was to buy my first sewing machine, and I wanted to help remove that hurdle for a new sewist.

Plus, I know that Melissa also has two cute little boys and I couldn't stop thinking about all the fun clothes that she could make for them (tip: check out MADE and Made by Rae for cute sewing projects designed for boys). And we're both Geminis. And we both love Anthropologie. What can I say? We're clearly kindred spirits!

A big thanks to everyone who commented and shared their stories. It was really cool for me to hear how many of you share my love for vintage machines, not just for their durability and beauty but also for all of the dotted line connections to women who have come before us.

Congrats, Melissa!

Maybe we'll be table partners again in some other class in the future :o)
