Sarah and I spent the weekend at the Mooresville Centerpiece Quilt Show, at our vendor booth. There were lots of vendors and oh the quilts were so beautiful. Our own Pat Bourbeau won several ribbons. Ticket sales were great for the chance to win the Pfaff Hobby Grandquilter 1200 that I donated as the sponsor of the Show. Everyone sat down and tried the Grandquilter. There was so much excitement. On Sat at 4:30pm, I got the pleasure of drawing the name for the winner of the Grandquilter. Thanks to all who took a chance on winning the machine. The suspense was rising as I stirred the pot, a pumpkin head, until I found just the right one. The winner was not present, so we gave her a call on a cell phone. After a few minutes of chit chat, I asked her if she knew why I was calling. Nope!! She was surprised when I told her she was the lucky winner of the Pfaff Grandquilter 1200. The winner Jean Newman. She will be in this week to pick up her prize, get some lessons and of course, we will take lots of pictures!! It's so much fun to notify the winner. Congratulations Jean, and many happy days of quilting on your new machine.
