2010 was an exciting year for the sewing industry, with outstanding fabric collections, fun new patterns and the continued growth of a very creative and dynamic blogging community. We asked a few of our favorite quilters, sewists, designers and shop owners to reflect on the sewing industry in 2010 and offer some predictions for 2011. We’re excited to share their answers with you over the next two weeks as we welcome the new year. We’d also love to know your thoughts on the subject!

Answer any or all of our questions on your blog or in this thread in our forum, and share a link to your answers in the comments below. Your participation enters you in a drawing for one of five $15 Sew,Mama,Sew! gift certificates on January 15th.
