  1. 1. I like the emphasis on historical fiction, the interviews, and the giveaways. I’ve met quite a few new-to-me authors here

    2. I actually enjoy every day of the post.

    3. No least favorite day here.

    4. Behind the scenes would be delightful. Travel would be fun, too.

    5. More interviews and giveaways would be great.

    6. I kind of like that the posts are mostly historical here. A little contemporary would be fine, though.

    7. It’s a warm, encouraging place that helps me keep abreast of Christian historical fiction.

  2. 1. When I open to your site, I don't have to worry about seeing books that offend me on the pages.

    2. Although you have a very good newsletter, I find having it come everyday is a bit much for me. I have more time to read it on Saturdays.

    3. #1 covers that.

    4. The topics seem find. You have a wide variety, although, travel is always a lot of fun.

    5. More books featured in my own genre: Christian Romance Suspense :) LOL

    6. I love historical romance, but like I said above, my genre would be nice to see more often.

    7. Like my books, you'll find it a good clean read. And you'll see many recommendations for your own reading.

    Btw, I think your page is a bit too busy, but that's probably just me. The edges of the quilt and the fact that it runs behind the entire page is distracting while I read. Again, it may be just me.

  3. 1. I enjoy STT with the historical posts along with the variety on other days. It's a blog you know that is truly Christian based.

    2. I enjoy every day and the variety of the posts. Starting the week with a devotional or uplifting thought is wonderful.

    3. I do not have a least favorite day.

    4. It would be nice to have behind the scenes with some of the authors, what drew them to that era, and their adventures with research before penning their historical fiction tale. Being Stitches Thru Time keeping it historical and Christian based. Contemporary romance doesn't fit with historical (my opinion).

    5.More recipes for a particular historical era, more reviews of historical fiction books or author interviews of their upcoming historical fiction release.

    6. I prefer STT staying historical based. That's one of the things I enjoy about STT is the history.

    7. STT is a great uplifting blog with a variety of encouraging, factual posts by various authors. Having a guest author from time to time is special. I appreciate the fact the books recommended are Christian based without foul lanuage or bedroom scenes. I appreciate the historical aspect of this blog and want to see that continued.

    The giveaways are special but I will read and comment without a giveaway being offered. Blessings as you and your team pray and see what God will lead you to do in the coming weeks for STT. I'm praying for all of you, too.

    1. Thank YOU for your precious feedback! I'm the giveaway coordinator, so I will try to snag some more paperback or hardback giveaways.

  5. I always look forward to opening your emails!
    1. I like the historical aspect of the posts. I always like learning about history.
    2. I like that every day is unique. I like them all!
    3. Don’t have a least favorite. But I find it hard that you don’t contact winners of the contests.
    I enter a lot of contests so it’s hard for me to remember to check back to see if I won. It’s easier since you put the tab in.
    4. I like the idea of behind the scenes and maybe a segment on covers and how each author picked the covers or had input into them. Research background into a book.
    5. I like more history, giveaways , interviews.
    6. I like the historical parts but if it’s a time shift genre that’s ok. I’m Not partial to YA or contemporary.
    7. STT is a great Christian daily blog with great historical information and a variety of topics and giveaways.

    I suggested that you put a tab for weekly windup so the winners would be easier to find . You graciously put the tab in.

  6. What do I like most about Stitches Thru Time?
    1. I enjoy learning about new books and having the chance to catch up with favorite authors and also meet new writers.

    2. It is hard to pick a favorite because I am always inspired and refreshed after reading Musing Monday posts; I never fail to learn something new on Tidbit Tuesday; Woven Wednesdays satisfy my love of crafts, recipes and needlework; on Thoughtful Thursday triggers my thoughts are challenged; Fun Fridays offer a treat after a "sometines long' week; and Sit-Down Saturdays offers me different topics and sometimes lengthy discussions to read at leisure.

    3. There is no least favorite day!

    4. I am always looking for good reading material for my granddaughter so Children Lit is always appealing and many YA books are enjoyable for adults. I also enjoy learning about how authors choose their book topics and how they prepare to write them.

    5. I think many of us are on limited budgets so giveaways are always appreciated. Since I love history, I can never be exposed to TOO much; and of course recipes! They are always fun to see.

    6. Children's Lit and perhaps some mystery/ suspense would be fine once in awhile but Historical Fiction is what STT does best and I hope that never changes!

    7. STT is a meeting place for people with similar goals and interests. We may be different ages, we may not have grown up in similar situations but we all share the same love of reading and the same desire to love and serve God! And that is the exact description of my friends!!
    Blessings,
