Great Giveaway: Social Media Milestone of 50,000 Facebook Likes!

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version


Back in early November, we crossed the 40,000 threshold on Facebook. On January 22nd, we hit our newest milestone goal: 50,000 Likes! It's all thanks to you and your friends. You spread the news, shouted from the rooftops, and possibly released carrier pigeons. However it happened, the word got out, and we have lots of new friends who are getting sewing inspiration each day through Facebook, as well as via Twitter and through our Pinterest boards... and, of course, on our site. Today, as promised, we are holding a very special Giveaway to celebrate. 

We partnered with some of our fabulous sponsors to bring you one of our biggest prizes ever. We have a Janome Jem Platinum 760 sewing machine (a $799 retail value) along with a gift box of amazing fabric cuts from FreeSpirit Fabrics, including some of the brand new True Colors collection from designers Anna Maria Horner, Jenean Morrison, Heather Bailey and Joel Dewberry. Plus, a notions mystery grab bag with wonderful thread, scissors, embellishments and more from Dritz, Coats, Renaissance Ribbons and others.

Because shipping is happening from several sources, this is an US-only giveaway. We know this is a disappointment to our loyal visitors outside of the US, and we appreciate your understanding. We do try to open up our giveaways to an international audience whenever we can, but the complex contest legal restrictions and customs requirements that differ from country to country make it beyond the ability of our small company to provide international options for every situation. Our true focus is on providing the best sewing tutorials, tips and inspiration we can to everyone.

Find out more about the Janome Jem Platinum 760 at the Janome America website. This model has many of the same great features of a full-size machine but in a compact ¾ size, which makes it a perfect companion machine to take to classes and quilting clubs... although we have one in the S4H studios and use it on a regular basis for all types of projects. It has 60 stitches with 5 one-step buttonholes, a built-in needle threader, start/stop button, and a needle up/down button, to name just a few highlights.

True Colors is an innovative, designer-driver mixer collection from FreeSpirit Fabrics. Take a look at our original True Colors review article for more information as well as a full listing of the True Colors Blog Tour that happened just a few weeks back, and a link to the video produced by Creativebug, which gives you a look inside the colorful worlds of the first four designers and shows how color affects their lives and their work.

Sew4Home has wonderful projects that make great gifts even if they are for me!!!  I love the new collections and the topping on the cake would be the Janome 760 !!!  Everyone should own at least one Janome, in my book.  Happy sewing everyone.

I truly love Sew4Home for all the great projects you have and the newest fabrics and notions you show us, but I can't do the Facebook thing.  I refusse to join it because it is a site that's notorious for human trafficing.  Children and adults alike are sold there.  The FBI has spent weeks rescuing children brought to New York and New Jersey for the sex trade that comes with every Super Bowl, and the customers find their prey on Facebook.  Child porn is there, and members are Facebook's products, which they also sell.  Teens are harrassed by classmates to the point of suicide.   I'm sorry, but I can't bring myself to belong to something as sleazy as Facebook.  I really wish that you would reconsider and help fight the Facebook crime.

Sew4Home is wonderful. I'm inspired every time I visit here. I never win anything,really, never....and I've never owned a Janome. Started sewing on a Kenmore sewing machine! I guess that shows my age, ooops!
