    I won!

    I can't believe this. I got an email Fri ( but never checked email until today) telling me I won the contest from Sew Vac Direct. I have been entering in it daily since I found out about it. I had 9 entries I think. Anyways I won a Janome bundle 5812. I have never won a thing in my entire life. I was shocked. It is a lower end machine but it is very nice. It will be great for piecing I think. I am so skeptical about internet things so I checked several things out (like the phone # & girls name that sent me the email) & then checked their Facebook page. It was there. They had me as living in Grand Rapids though & I don't live there so until they get your address they must go by broad areas with bigger cities or something. Anyways I'm thrilled!

    Congratulation. I am one who never wins anything either.

    congratulations, it will be great for travel too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Congratulations. The only thing I have ever won is a rubber raft thing and I am terrified of going out on the water. lol

    Wow! Good for you, girl!! I've never won anything either, but I still enter stuff... Hey, anything that doesn't cost us anything, right?

    Congratulations. I say I never win anything also, but I have won several small prizes. I've never won anything big. I keep trying, though. My DH is very lucky though. Many years ago we worked at a church carnival, and he worked at the roulette wheel. He kept bringing me prizes that he won--probably 5 or 6. I think they told him that he couldn't bet anymore. lol

    I won a chook raffle once....and a photo portrait sitting...that was in my 20's. Now in my 50's I still live in hope of winning something cool like you did. Congratulations and happy piecing.

    Good for you! If it's a Janome it has to be good. I have a 15 year old embroidery one and a new Jem 720 and both are just great. See, you are a winner! It's just the beginning of good things.

    Thank you everyone! I don't know when I will get it but when I called & gave my info this morning he said he would send me a tracking # when it was sent. I did get the order confirmation shortly after I talked with him so it should be on its way soon. I'm so excited. Can't wait to receive it. I sound like a little kid! lol
