Naughty Or Nice Holiday Party: Day 1


Welcome to the party! Thank you for joining us for a week of fun and giveaways. Each day we will feature the answers of the questions that we posed to the designers. You will find out about their holiday habits and each day you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts. You will be eligible to win a fabulous bundle of fabric. All you have to do is answer the question on the blog [and/or on Facebook] for a chance to win the bundle of fabric of the day. No substitutions. You can enter on the blog and/or Facebook for two chances to win per day. You have until midnight December 9th to enter and all winners must claim their prizes until midnight December 13th or the prize is forfeited and we will announce a new winner.

Thank you for visiting our website, blog and Facebook page. It has been a great year for the Henry Glass designers. They've been busy working on a big project with the folks at Martingale & Co. The book will be released next fall and we know that you are going to love it. Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook or sign up for our newsletter to receive news about some exciting announcements in the new year.

For this blog party we asked the designers the following questions:

1. What was your favorite gift? Worst?
2. Early or late shopper? Earliest or latest that you've shopped?
3. Favorite holiday drink? Alcohol or none? Recipe?
4. Are you likely one to return a present or to suck it up and keep it?
5. As a child were you likely to make the naughty or nice list? 

Let's see what the designers have to say. First, Mary Ellen Von Holt of Little Quilts is sharing her holiday thoughts with us. Make sure that you follow us on your favorite social media platform. Mary Ellen will be continuing her tea towel program at her store and each month she will be sharing a version made with Henry Glass fabric.


1.     Favorite gift when I was a child was a shiny black Schwinn bicycle. I was so surprised as my family really could not afford that kinds of gift with 4 children all about 12 months apart
Worst gift – never really got one except maybe in a gift swap one time with a stitch-in group! Maybe many have had that experience!


2.    I’m a late shopper – often on the 23rd or 24th of December, when the prices are the best! Earliest was one year I found the perfect gift for a friend in January, but then misplaced it for about 6-8 months!


3.    Favorite Holiday drink is …a nice glass of cabernet!...also like Constant Comment tea. A favorite recipe is a cream cheese and olive spread. Soften a brick of cream cheese and stir in a small jar of sliced green olives and pimentos finely chopped. Shape into a ball and chill for a bit or place on a plate with Triscuit crackers. Nice colors for the holiday with the green and red…everyone loves this!


4.    I’m not likely to return a present..sometimes they go into what I call “the present closet” to be re-gifted. Often times give these things to Goodwill too!


5.    I always made the nice list as I was the oldest of four children … other there were boys … who easily made the naughty list lots of times!

Thanks, Mary Ellen, for the fun answers. We look forward to the tea towel inspiration. Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hill Quilt Designs is up next. Make sure that you visit her blog today. She has an AMAZING giveaway happening. Mary Jane giving away two Tours des Jardin quilt kits. Wow.





 1.  When I was 3 years old I got a Hop-a-long Cassidy outfit and a cardboard horse you could get inside.  I thought that was the best present in the whole world.  I "rode" that horse everywhere.  As an adult, my favorite gifts were the ornaments my Mother sent every year.  She would always include a small box that said "Open before Christmas" and there would be an ornament inside.  My Mom passed away several years ago, but every year when I decorate the Christmas tree I come across the little boxes with her handwritten tag and the ornament inside.  It is something I will always cherish.



Worst gift - I always seem to get scented candles when I go to group Christmas parties.  I am extremely allergic to them so it's not a great gift for me. 


2.   One year I had all my shopping done and the presents wrapped by Thanksgiving.  But about 5 years ago my husband, myself and our two daughters decided that we wanted our Christmas to be more about family and less about presents so I haven't done much shopping since then.  It really takes the stress off of the holiday for me.  We spend more time cooking together and that has been so enjoyable.  
3.    I can't say I have a favorite holiday drink.  We mostly get local apple cider (not the hard variety) and that is our Thanksgiving and Christmas drink.


4.   I return things. I know if I gave a gift to someone and they didn't like or wouldn't use, I would want them to return it.  It doesn't hurt my feelings in the least.

5.   Always nice.   

Thank you to Mary Jane for playing along. Remember, tell your friends to come to the party! How can you win? First, let's take a look at today's featured fabric ... and Sew On by Fresh Designs. This is an adorable line featuring sewing elements. There are mannequins, thimbles, sewing machines and scissors.

My fave holiday gift was a hand made Barbie house made by my dad. Love that man

Emily C said...

One year, when I was about ten, I got a beautiful gold ring. My family did not have much money, so we often got presents from the giving tree. I always wondered who the giver was, but never found out. It was special because it was mine and made of gold, something I would never have expected.

Pat S. said...

My favorite holdiay gift was last year when my son gave me two gift cards worth a round trip ticket to visit him. It doesn't get any better than that! Happy holidays & thanks sew much for this chance to win :-D

scottylover said...

My favorite gift was a Barbie airplane. It was dome shaped and I could not figure out for the life of me what it was while it sat under the tree! My dad kept teasing me, saying he would tell me what it was if I told him what his present was, but I knew better! Santa would have taken it away if I had! :)

Tammy said...

My favorite holiday gift of all times is the year my husband bought me my embroidery machine. It was the best gift ever. And the gift that keeps on giving.

Lynn Osborne said...

My favorite, sort of odd, holiday gift was the repainting of my much loved but old car. It was previously really showing its age but now looks brand new after it's paint job!

Joanna said...

Such an interesting party. My favorite holiday gift as a child was a wooden white rocking horse that I rode whenever I watched The Lone Ranger on television. And Sew On is a lovely line.

Margaret said...

I remember getting a little sewing machine that really worked when you turned the handle. My mom always was sewing and I felt like I could really help her. She helped me make some doll quilts on it. I wish I had it today.

Potpourri said...

My favourite Christmas gift is the Christmas dinner we always share with our family at a local hotel. It is wonderful and allows out of the Christmas dinner rush

Renea said...

After getting married in November my husband had to leave to go to his schooling for the Navy. We were not together for our first Christmas but were planning for me to fly to be with him after he was done with his schooling. We did not know how we were going to pay for my airline ticket. My parents had a ticket wrapped and gave it to me for that Chirstmas. Thanks for the giveaway.

Donna said...

Christmas is filled with a long list of favorite gifts and memories for me. One treasure was a small blue vase my then 5 year old nephew picked out for me at the dollar store.

Diane H said...

My favourite gift was the year my sister and her family flew in from 1,500 miles away and surprised us Christmas morning. Best Christmas ever.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

Barbie! I love sewing themed fabric and would love to add some of this cute fabric to my stash!

Denise Mitchell said...

Anything from my family and friends I love and appreciate. Thanks for the fun!

SewCalGal said...

Probably a bike that Santa brought me. I also remember my parents made me sleep with my older sister on Christmas Eve for fear I'd get up in the middle of the night. Well, sweet sis slept soundly and I did get up. First time there was a bicycle "tire". Later a frame. Much later an entire bike. The tree was always lit and the fire glowing, but I never did see Santa putting my bicycle together! Nor did Santa ever see or hear me sneaking around that particular Christmas Eve.

My favorite Christmas gift was an Afghan rug my daughter had hand made for me when she was deployed there. Helped that she hand-delivered it!

teachpany said...

My favorite gift was a locket my 5yo son picked out. It was a small filigree heart, and when opened, read "I love you". When he wanted to tell me, he would give me a hug, open the heart and show it to me, then run back to his toys.

PK Sews said...

A special gift that I remember was a beautiful doll with long dark hair and my mom made her a gorgeous bridal gown and veil for her to wear.

Lisa Marie said...

The first year we were married my husband gave me a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for Christmas. I know some people may not think that is a good gift, but in the weeks before Christmas I had made about 15 varieties of Christmas cookies with a hand mixer, so to me it was wonderful! I still use that mixer nearly 27 years later.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

My favorite gift (and your photo made me smile with fond memory)was when I was about 5 yrs old - the most beautiful rocking horse I had ever seen. I wore those springs right out!

Joan said...

My favourite gift was a desk. I was 8 years old and when I woke up on Christmas morning, the desk was in my bedroom. Thank you for the generous giveaway.

Deb said...

When I was growing up, my favorite gift was a Smith-Corona blue typewriter. I loved it!! And I later became a secretary and typed every day! My favorite current Christmas gift was a "barn quilt" that the kids gave me--it's handing on the side of my garden shed.

One year after getting a swimming pool in our backyard that summer - all of us (4 children) got skating outfits my mom made and ice skates. My dad froze the pool and made sides for it so we skated at night often with the record player playing our favorite songs. Such wonderful memories.

This is such a sweet fabric line... Love it! One of my moist favorite and treasured gift was given to me by my daughter when she was 9 yes old... She quietly worked in her closet to hand stitch a small coaster! I had tears and could not speak when I opened her gift of love!

Becky said...

Enjoyed the interview questions and answers. I've been so blessed with many gifts and blessings. Can't think of one gift that tops the list. Merry Christmas!

Podunk Pretties said...

Barbie Fashion Stage is by far my favorite christmas memory. Barbie and Ken would twirl in circles at the push of a button.

Enjoyed the questions and answers from both designers. I've been so blessed with many wonderful gifts. I truly can't think one won that wins over the many. Merry Christmas!

Fiesta said...

My favorite gift was when hubby surprised me with a new Bernina. I am loving it!

lefuntz said...

When I was 4 years old I asked Santa for a doggy. On Christmas morning I found a big beautiful doll and a wardrobe of clothes from my grandparents. I cried because Santa misunderstood me. I wanted a doggy, not a dolly. Then I heard a noise out in the breezeway. There I found Packy, my best friend for the next 14 years. And he didn't seem to mind that I dressed him up in that doll's clothes.

DebrafromMD said...

My favorite Christmas gift was my baby sister.

Margaret said...

I have loved all my gifts but the best would be the year I received a scroll saw. I love working with wood almost as much as fabric.

Vicki H said...

My favorite gift was years ago, a handmade crocheted granny square afghan from my mom.

Kathie said...

I had asked for a typewriter but my parents wouldn't promise that I'd get one. Without telling each other, they each bought me one. Excited yes but then I needed to decide which one would have to be returned!

ljeanne said...

As an adult, my favorite gift was a plane ticket to see my daughter on Christmas. I spent the morning in Georgia with one daughter and the afternoon in New Mexico with my other daughter.

Sandy D said...

When I was 9 I got a Doll House before that I would make my own out of an orange box. My Mom was raising three of us by herself so it was an extra special gift.

My favorite Christmas gift was a crystal heart necklace from my husband. I love having 'a piece of his heart' with me as I go through the day.

Kathy H said...

My best gift was a pink 2 wheel bicycle.

Joan H. said...

The first Christmas gift which I can remember as a child was a Betsy-Wetsy Doll. I had that doll for many years before it literally fell apart from excess bathing.

Barb and Sharon said...

My favourite gift was a doll house my Dad made for me. It had electric lights in the ceilings and my Mum bought dolls that fit inside and all the furniture. I still have that house to this day.

Debra Lee said...

I really love thiis tablet!

Debra Kay Neiman said...

I remember Mom picking up the layaway, late at night and it was in a big box on the floor of the back seat. I just knew there was a baby doll in there, because I could smell the plastic. I was so right too! crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

GranChris said...

As a mom my favorite gifts are the ones my kids made when they were small out of colored sand, noodles and pretzels. You just can't beat those.

KMSC said...

When I was seven or eight my mother made an entire wardrobe for my "Revlon doll" which was a fashion doll popular before Barbie. I knew she was making this wardrobe and I couldn't wait to receive it for Christmas.

Helen L said...

What a fantastic fabric line! I love the sewing machines: They would go so well with the beautiful Featherweight that my hubby just got me for my B-day!! :-) And one of my favorite gifts was a jacket that my older sister sewed for me: I was so surprised because I hadn't seen her working on it at all, so it was a complete surprise!!! Thanks for the chance to win that lovely fabric!!

mrscwatson said...

Every year, my dad gets us girls some little piece of jewelry we wear to Christmas Eve services. It's always so fun to see what he finds and extra special that he goes and does this all on his own every year. mrscwatson81@hotmail.com

Mary Ann said...

My favorite Christmas present is one my son Preston,who is 21, gave to me early. When we went to Walt Disney World's Star Wars Weekend this year, Preston paid to have himself immortalize as a storm trooper statuette. I thought he did it for himself. I was totally surprised that when it came and he inspected it he turned and handed it to me and said" Here , Mom, I did this for you!" I almost cried!
Merry Christmas, Mary Ann

delaineelliott said...

My favourite gift is a pair of tiny diamond stud earrings that my husband gave me the first Christmas we were together.

Motherdragon's Musings said...

My favourite Christmas gift was a short set my Granny made me when i was about six, the top was a sort of yellow check, with fish around the bottom, similar to a border print. i was lucky enough to find some of the off cuts in a box of Granny's and have used it in some special quilts for my family.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Oh...thank you for this chance. My favorite that I can remember...lol was my GoBaby!!! It make s life easier...

As a child my favorite presents was a baby doll. I still have it to this day :) As an adult, my favorite present were diamond earrings from my husband. It was a huge surprise since we really didn't have a lot of money back then. Merry Christmas to all!

Cheryl Kirk said...

My favorite gift as a child was a guitar. I never learned to play it but that didn't stop me from trying.

LeAnne said...


Can't think of a favorite, but the best ones are when you actually get what you asked for for Christmas.

Barb said...

Your black and white Christmas photo by the tree brings back lots of memories of a very similar looking Christmas in my younger days! Everyone lived in black and white then! Seriously, my fav Christmas gift was my first Barbie doll and a wardrobe filled with hand-made clothes from my grandma. Wish I still had them, but my brother sold them all for $5 when I was in college. Grrr.

ledamewood said...

My favorite Christmas gift was a tape recorder with a message recorded by my father.

Debbie Rogowski said...

A surprise gift of fabric. I now love gift lists on the computer that we can share. My kids for the first time ever bought me fabric!

Rebecca Stevens said...

I think the best was a doll that was as cuddly as a real baby. She had her own bottle (still have-used to hand feed a kitten once) and two outfits, a winter snowsuit and a summer short set. I still have her dressed in one of my baby dresses made by my grandmother with my sterling teething ring hanging around her neck sitting in her doll bed covered with a satin quilt my Mom made for the doll bed. I don't remember if I got them all together. I remember Mom saying she finished the quilt Christmas Eve night after I went to bed!

Ana said...

My favorite gift was my own stereo from Sears Roebuck and this was in the 60's. Many an LP was played as well as 45's.

Donna W said...

My favorite gift was a Venus Paradise Coloring Set. Each year, on Christmas Eve, I would receive a set. My cousins, brother and sister would sit around on Christmas Eve and color them. I could not understand why they would want to "color", as they are all around 8 to 10 years older than I am. It became a tradition, and we still laugh about it today

Crickets Corner said...

My favorite gift was a baby doll that you could feed and her eyes blinked. I also received an original Barbie a couple of years later. I still have both of them, they are well played with and of now value to anyone but me.

Dee said...

Anything my grandbabies make - pottery, ornament - well, you get the picture.

Susan said...

My favorite holiday gift growing up was my own violin (so I didn't have to keep renting from the school). My favorite holiday gift as an adult is up to date pictures of family.

Judy1522 said...

My favorite holiday gift was a bicycle. We spent a lot of time riding our bicycles and used them to get to and from friends houses so I was thrilled when I got my first bicycle for Christmas.

Jeanne Gwin said...

My favorite gift was a store bought dress, I had never had one but when the two sisters moved out of the house there were no hand-me-downs and mom splurged and bought me a dress~~

Karen said...

My favorite gift was my 1st daughter who was born on the 9th of December.

My favorite gift was a gift for the whole the family. We got a squirrel monkey and have him for a long time. He was so cute. Thanks for a chance to win.

hookedonquilting said...

My Barbie dolls and clothes that were made by my grandmother. The clothes covered her Christmas tree that year, and she told me that Santa forgot to leave them at my house so he left them at her house for me to find. I still have every one of them, and I ain't no young chick any more.

OhioLori said...

My favorite gift was from my best friend...she mad me a felted purse from an old wool sweater!! It is beautiful!! :)

Sherry said...

On Christmas Eve over 40 years ago my hubby asked me to marry him and gave me a promise ring. It is still precious.

Cowtown Quilts said...

My mother had an uncanny knack for giving us "thoughtful" gifts that would make us laugh. One year (as adults) she gave us all a motion sensored barking dog to sit by our doors so that when an intruder tried to come in, the dog would bark. I still laugh about that.

Debra @ Life is a Stitch said...

Pat V. said...

My most memorable gift as a child was one year when my mom went to some kind of outlet store and purchased a TON of Barbie clothes for me for Christmas. I don't really know how many there actually were, but it seemed like so many!
