We are delighted to announce the winner of the Huge Janome Sewing Machine Giveaway. As happy as I am for the winner, I'm sad we couldn't give away many more machines. Some of the many comments that the contest participants left on the site were truly inspiring. The number of participants was also amazing and we thank everyone for their involvement.
The winner of the contest is Maureen A. from San Diego, California. Maureen entered the contest with a total of 12 entries. Her winning entry was number 10 of 12 and resulted from her joining the the mailing list of our sister site over at Sewing4Free.com. This option was only available later in the contest which just goes to show the value of sticking with those entries.
Maureen also had an extra entry for sharing the contest with her friend Leslee G. As we said a few times in our posts leading up to the drawing, this strategy is often the most effective as you get one free entry for everyone coming from someone you referred. I think this really improved Maureen's chances.
Please let's everyone congratulate Maureen for her win in the comment section below.
Stay tuned for more exciting giveaways early in the new year. Our sponsors are lining up some really fantastic prizes.
We wish you all the best for the holidays. Happy sewing!
Maureen's comment is a bit buried in the many comments below so I'll bring it up to the top:
