The Biggest Blog Event of the Season

A few weeks ago, many of you shared what you would do with a new entry-level embroidery machine. Wow – how generous you all are! Almost everyone of you said you knew someone who would just love to have a new machine! Well, here’s your chance to make it happen! Our good friends at Brother have generously donated a Brother SE-400 sewing/embroidery machine for one of our lucky Blog readers. But here’s the deal – you win by ‘creative participation’. And you don’t even have to embroider – you just have to show you are creative. Download our gift tag design and Brother’s winter tree design (both available in digital embroidery and graphic files). Make the tag (stitch, print, color, glue, glitz, cut, crop, weave, sew, bling, tack, beribbon or whatever!), take a photo and email it to us. You’ll be entered to win the machine. Winner will be announced the day before Thanksgiving – how’s that for something to be thankful for? So come on, join in the fun!

And here’s an incentive…EVERY entry received will receive a $5.00 coupon good towards any purchase at http://www.dzgns.com

    Oh my word! What a wonderful opportunity to win a fabulous prize and to show our creativity. I can’t wait to get started. I would love to give this beautiful machine to my sister who I taught to sew. She is a creative person and would be so thrilled! Thanks for this opportunity.

      Enis,
      We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Tell your sister about the contest too– she can do “Option 2” of the contest. I’m sure with her talent she can come up with something that showcases her sewing skills.

      Happy Stitching!

    I have a niece that is thinking about going into fashion design for her College Major. This would be a great machine for her to get started on. I have an Innovis-2500D and she really enjoys coming over to sew when she has time.

    I have a DIL who comes over quite often to use our machines. She is very talented and always has such great ideas. Everytime we think of downsizing..she says, I’ll take the embroidery machine off your hands. I tell her we may be “thinking” of downsizing, but the embroidery machine stays with us! Thanks for the challenge.
