    I would love to sit and listen and learn from Ruth Rae. I love her art, both fabric and jewelry. They transport me to a place where expression is encouraged and freely done. I will keep my eye out for the Somerset Studio Gallery. I also want to tell you that the Winter issue of Art Quilt Studio has to be the best ever! I have loved every issue, but this one is over the top fantastic. Thanks!

  9. Sami Swan Thompson says:

    I’m not entering, as I never win contests. (I’ve been a Stampington subscriber for years & years, and have never won anything yet – I think it’s a curse.) But I did want to say that every single one of these articles is SO delicious that it’s really quite impossible to choose! We readers are so lucky to have Stampington, the Shoppe, & all the lovely magazines to fulfill our hearts’ desires. Please never stop publishing! You truly are a source of inspiration.

    Cheers,
    Sami

  23. Sheila Earhart says:

    Oh my gosh, good news/bad news! For some reason I started looking at the Sew Somerset Issue, and I don’t sew! Wow, even I could do most of these projects! The bad news? Oh no, another Stampington Publication that I will be in love with! How will I ever choose just 1 or 2?? (or let’s be honest and say 3 or 4). ANYWAY, I would LOVE to learn some of those projects by Beth Leintz. They look amazing.

    Loving you even though you’ve created a monster out of me,

    Sheila form Oregon

Thanks for such wonderful opportunities to be inspired by all the artists.

  35. Stephanie says:

  36. Stacy T. says:

    I’m torn between two features in Artists’ Cafe…
    I’d love to see more work from the Artist Portforlio of Misty Mawn- the sample from the excerpt is hauntingly beautiful. I’d, also, love to see “The Red Quilt: Artwork Inspired by Local History”. It appeals to my personal artwork style and interests.

  37. Jan Johnson says:

    I actually saw Somerset Studio Gallery and LOVED the art by Victoria LeFevre. I couldn’t afford to buy the issue right now so I would sure love to win it!

  38. Trisha says:

    From sunny South Africa I just love all your publications, but as I have to choose one I would choose “Where Women Cook” as Julie M Usher’s iced biscuits look yummy, as does her kitchen. Thank you
    always for the inspirations.

  39. Jan Adams says:

    Ruth Rae, Sue Pelletier, Pam Carriker, Misty Mawn… the list goes on. These generous and talented artists share, inspire and encourage and Stampington & Company makes it possible for us to tap into their talent wherever we live. Whole new worlds and possibilities open up and if any publication (and maybe especially Artists Cafe) featuring their work made its way to me in Australia I would be more than delighted.

  40. Kristy Tyra says:

    I am super excited to see new issue of Artist Cafe! Around new issue time, it’s always a bit agonizing, trying to pick just one or two of the publications to purchase. But I will definitely be putting that one on my list!

  41. Patricia says:

    my favourite is Somerset Studio Gallery and would love to take a class (if available) from Beth Dayton

  42. Joni M says:

    I would love the issue of Take Ten! The Painted Kraft article looks interesting… I LOVE Kraft paper!

  43. Tisa at Seattle Retro says:

    My sewing machine has sat forlornly for over 15 yrs, “sew” I think SEW SOMERERSET would be an inspiration to read (never have read it or even seen a copy). I like Danita & Dina Wakley mixed media offerings, would like to see how they use their machines! Thanks for the opportunity to be inspired…

  44. Ella says:

    I would love to go on an art walk, with Angela Cartwright. We would take photos and I could see how her process unfolds :D

    My pick would be Somerset Studio Gallery~
    I admit it was hard to pick, so many artists I would love to learn art lessons from~

    Thank you~

  45. tina zappone says:

    Wow! The Gallery issue looks amazing!!!! So many of my favorites. I love Colette Copeland, Sue Pelletier, Wendy Brightbill and Danita but I am really loving the pics of Ruth Rae’s work. Would love to win this issue. Thanks as always for your wonderful publications and generous giveaways.

  46. StacySix says:

    Oh, so hard to choose! But I think this month, the one that most speaks to my heart is Somerset Studio Gallery, and Georgianna Carlson. I look at the pure whimsy of her style and realize that I should find the courage to fall in love my with own personal drawing style.

  47. Susie Cross says:

    Danita is one artist I would like to learn from. I would choose Somerset Studio or Somerset Studio Gallery.

  48. christy says:

    the article calling to me is “it’s all about the line” – artwork by samantha (cotterhill….and that winnie the pooh collage looks amazing too!!!)

    all these publications look so juicy!!!!

  49. Liz S. says:

    I would learn from Cynthia Shaffer and I like Artist’s Cafe!

  50. PUFF says:

    Every time I pick up Belle Armoire Jewelry I find a few pieces I would like to make and the new issue is no different by Madeline’s Butterfly earrings intrigue me more than any other project I have seen in so long I can’t wait for this issue so I can get on it.

  51. Karen says:

    Rebecca Deeprose in Somerset Gallery

  52. marykay says:

    Oh how awesome it would be to work beside of or even near Danita while she makes her darling “Painted Art Dolls… Featured in another of my fav’s “Somerset Studio Gallery”

    Merry CHRISTmas

  53. Gypsea says:

    I am in love with the Belle Armoire Jewelry earring preview!

  54. Chris Lefevre says:

    In Somerset Studio Gallery the article by Victoria Lefevre sounds wonderful.
