Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!

One of the best parts about the quilting blogging community, IMO, is the generosity abound. It's so much fun to share part of my fabric stash, and to just thank people for reading and/or commenting. I try to participate each time :)

http://www.sewmamasew.com/blog2/march2013/GiveawayDayMay6.jpg

For those of you who are new, I'm a purple-obsessed modern quilter named Jess. I'd love for you to look around my blog, which I've been running for almost 3 years. I also run the blog for the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild, post a lot on Pinterest, stay active in Flickr swaps, and just started a Facebook page for this blog (I love how my blog posts just appear there now!!). I know you have a lot of places to go, but feel free to become a follower in whichever way you prefer, if you like what you see! Never required, though.

Now, for the giveaway...


A little bundle that actually might work together in a quilt! I have two pieces cut a bit bigger than fat quarters (orange - Frippery by Thomas Knauer, green - a pretty Joel Dewberry print), as well as a 16.5 x 13" piece of Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms (in the middle).

Please tell me about your favorite teacher when you were growing up. I'm a new teacher, and I've wanted to be one my whole life... and it always interests me why a teacher made a difference in someone's life.

If you're a follower, you can post another time for a second chance.

EDIT: Please understand that I will be unable to respond to all comments for this giveaway. Usually I would, though!

That's all! Giveaway ends Friday, May 10 at 5 pm. Good luck and may the rest of your day be quilty :)

  1. I loved my history teacher. He was strict, but he taught us so much, and I really enjoyed his class! I actually mulled over being a museum curator for a while, just so that I could be close to pieces of history.

  3. Hi Jess, my favorite teacher would have to be Mr. Cotter (although I don't really remember his name...i certainly remember him.) He was my 7th grade math teacher. He was generally a grumpy, old man...but he loved math. He gave me the benefit of the doubt and put me in the accelerated math program even though I was one point short on my entrance test. It changed my life.

  4. I can't say that I had one favorite, but I DO remember my high school college-prep English teachers (all three of them) rather fondly!

    She inspired creativity and imagination.

  7. Gosh - I loved Mrs Schwig and Mr kukarudza. They were kind and patient when I was a handful. They gave me attention when I needed it and were firm when I was being a brat!

  8. I loved my AP Biology and AP Anatomy teacher Mrs. Beebe. Her previous occupation was a nurse. She had so many great stories, she was funny, but she got down to business. She always made sure you understood something and her door was always open. It was said to hear when my school got rid of a lot of AP classes and I was sad that some students would never get the experience of the best teacher like I had in high school. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favourite was my history teacher in my last year. He had been in the school for years and was so eccentric. He used to dance around the classroom acting out what he was teaching, and had a supply closet on the other side of the school from his room that he'd secretly taken over and completely stacked full of his private history book collection. Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Miss Hassel -- she was the BEST. She did the fake money thing with us and you could buy things like doing her hair. She would also dance on her desk when she really wanted us to remember something. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  19. My kindergarten teacher gave us timed math tests, and we loved them!!! She used them to make us behave... "if you're good, you can take a timed test later..." LOL

    ReplyDelete
  20. My favorite teacher was my sophomore year english teacher, and I HATE english classes. I couldn't tell you the one thing it was, but she was the best teacher I had. IN college it was my inorganic teacher, I even joined his research team cause he was so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe I've just been lucky, but I've had a school career dotted throughout with wonderful teachers. I think what they all had in common was that they made us feel like they cared, and like we were each important.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I had a junior high school English teacher who was genuinely interested in her students, even though many of us were in a very awkward stage of life. She treated us as important, smart individuals and I think it made us want to live up to that.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I had all nuns, but my children all had the best 5th grade teacher. Nothing is flat to her. Even the bulletin boards have dimention.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. My 2nd grade teacher was Sharon Fisher, and according to my mother I simply loved her. I don't remember a lot of detail but I still remember her name to this day, and I don't remember any other teachers from elementary school. I think she must have been very kind and gentle and encouraging.

  48. I can't really remember a very very memorable teacher. But I do remember a special teachers aid. SHe came to our house and brought us grocerys and little treats during the holidays and would buy us back to school undies each year. I was in her kindergarden class. She was a member our our church. And when she relized how poor we were she made my family her mission in life.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Burch. I had her for first grade and she was just patient and soft spoken and kind and really made me love reading.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Teachers that are memorable are supportive, sometimes when other people are not. I loved to sew in high school and got teased for it, but my teacher would allow me to use my projects for credit in home economics, because I was really good. I made dolls and their dresses.
    My current teacher in college is one who you can talk too if you are having issues, even if the problems are not in her class.

  55. My favorite teacher was in 1st grade... I was so thrilled to learn how to read and I'll always be grateful to her. My DH is a 6th grade teacher and his big thing is respect... he treats kids with respect and usually gets it in return. And, he has a lot of fun too!

    ReplyDelete
  61. my favorite teacher was for junior and senior year honors english Mrs. Adkins, she is a favorite of a LOT of students. the thing i remember most about her was that she treated us like adults- she didn't talk down to us or like we were children and she held us accountable for the work she gave us. if we did what we were asked we got good grades. she also never really lost her cool... that may be due to the fact that she was 5 years away from retiring when i had her so she had been around the block. to this day she and I keep in touch, she moved down the street from me a few years ago and i visit her often and she is still a joy in my life.

    ReplyDelete

  67. My 2nd grade teacher. She was a true gem. My home life was sometimes a bit off, she always made my day so bright. We moved an hour away and she would still meet up with me and take me to the mall and for lunch. She gave out happy grams (little notes) several times a week. I still have every single one!

  70. Mrs. Penn was my math teacher in 8th grade. She was very tough but I remember the first time I realized she was "human"; she actually got totally tickled at one of the boys in the class. He did something that just caught her off guard. It was nice to know that about her!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Richards in 5th and 6th grade. I was lucky enough to have her for both grades since she moved up a grade with our class! She could whistle with her fingers, she took no guff from any of the punks, and she was sincerely interested in each of us and made us feel important because we were important to her.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I always loved the teachers who were a little on the strict side. I don't know why, but those were my favorites. Maybe because they could control the classroom and we could actually learn something. Thanks for the chance!

  87. Okay, well she wasn't a teacher but she stands out in my mind - the local librarian. She was always very kind, helpful, tried to teach me not to judge a book by its cover, tried to get to know me and relate to me, listened carefully, and was very, very patient as she helped me pick out books. She was also very excited about reading and learning and passed that onto the kids. She smiled a lot, she genuinely cared, and she was proud of your accomplishments - like when I learned to write my name (which I had to do to get a library card), when I learned to read, etc. When she taught me not to dog-ear the pages - to take care of items even though I was borrowing them - she gave me bookmarks, the tool I would need to do what she taught. I'm rambling now... I think that's enough info. :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. I loved the Spanish teacher who was often telling us not to forget to love live: smell, enjoy, listen... He wasn't every day telling us what to do, I learned to be constant 'cause homework wasn't obligated but if you didn't do it the exams where so bad. It was something different in a course where every other teacher was just interested in us memorizing things and telling us every day what we had to do for the next day.

    For the younger children teacher, my daughter (she's 5) loves this year's teacher, she's so sweet and plays with them so much, and they learn a lot.

  106. There were several teachers that I really liked, but my 1st grade teacher was ADORED by the whole class. That was about 61 years ago, but I still remember her!!! Right now I can't remember her last name...Miss Smith, maybe? Her first name was Lois. I can't remember the exact reason we all loved her so much. It must have been her kindness. Friday afternoons were horrible. As we left, we all were hugging her and crying because we wouldn't see her again until Monday! Of course, nowadays a teacher would be afraid to hug a child for fear of being called a child molester. I'll never forget her. I know she must be gone now. I'm 66, and she would be in her 80s at least.

  110. Mrs. Fink, my elementary school music teacher. And Mr. Barrett, 6th grade - it was his first year of teaching and my first year at a Christian school.

Good luck with your teaching, I'm sure you'll be a fantastic teacher. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  119. I would have to say my high school music teacher. He could laugh at himself, he respected his students and always made time for us, he had a ton of energy, organizing fundraising, concerts, and band trips, and he was very good at teaching both the history of music and the technical skills of playing. I still play clarinet, and met my husband through the community band.

I went on to be a middle school science teacher because of Mr. Hinton. He introduced me to the world of science in an interesting way and aroused my curiosity. I am now retired and hope I was half as interesting in my class as he was.

  135. My favourite teacher was in 3rd grade (I think that's kind of common, must be something about how impressionable we are at 8 years old?) but the teacher who made the biggest impact on my life was in grade 10, my math teacher, who not only made math 'fun' but refused to allow me to blow off math as 'something girls are not good at'. Now I'm a statistician. She literally changed the course of my life.

  140. I loved my high school biology teacher. She got me really interested in genetics and if it weren't for the math, I would've continued on to med school. Funny how I used the punnet squares she taught us to predict my children's traits and you would know they took the recessives!

  143. My favorite teacher was in grade 3, her name was Ms. Harder. I don't really remember why she was my fave, I just know that gr. 3 was lots of fun.

    She ended up being my cousin's gr. 11 basketball coach - in another province!

  144. I think my grade 6 teacher was my favorite mostly because I think he liked me. I was a terribly shy child and most teachers didn't really notice me. It was nice to have someone notice me without trying to humiliate me.

  146. My favorite teacher was my high school English teacher. He had high standards and encouraged us to reach them. He accepted no excuses and taught us that we a re responsible for our own work. If it's done well, it's because we did well and took the time, if we didn't, it was no one's fault but our own. Thanks for participating! :)

  159. Actually, it was a college professor...He walked up next to me during an exam and said..."Close your eyes. Picture all white.....now picture a polar bear. Now, start the next question." From that moment on, I was able to calm myself during an exam, I only had 1 more semester left but I did so much better on tests. I was able to finally release the anxiety (sometimes multiple x during 1 exam). Thank you. kerihag at yahoo dot com

  160. Mine was my 8th grade history teacher. He was so passionate about his love of the Civil War history and even back in the early 70's had slide shows set up to enhance the lessons. I think any teacher that lets their passion for their subject shine through is a favorite.

  161. Ugh. I tried to enter last night on my phone, but I don't think it worked! My fav teacher was my 8th grade history teacher. He was the first person to recommend me for an honors track in high school! He believed in me when I questioned myself. I ended up studying government in college and minor-ing in history.

  163. Teaching runs in my family...we're all teachers except for my brother-in-law who's a nurse. My favorite teacher was my 4th grade teacher--Mrs. Newman. She made the year fun by letting us do cool projects, having time that felt like fun, giving us jelly beans before standardized testing and telling us they were "smart pills." She made us feel special and for that we would have done anything for her.

  164. When I was 12, I had this form teacher who knew I was very poor and undernourished. Every day she would tell me she bought too much food and could I help her finish her food? I never realized she was feeding me until I got older!

  165. My favorite teacher was my high school English teacher. She could make us laugh, and make us work. One day every week, class consisted of us writing one page of whatever we wanted to write about. I always just wrote her a letter, and she would write comments back.

  169. My favorite teacher was a new teacher when I was a freshman and it was fun to be there as he got his bearings as a teacher. He was more open to us then I think he would have been otherwise.
