July                                                          2019


On the Road . . .


From traveling to industry events over the past two years, I have collected a sweet assortment of product samples, books, patterns, fabric samples and notions. As you can image, I have quite a selection of SCHMETZ needles and Grabbit® Sewing Tools too; some used for photography, others have damaged packaging, a few Grabbit® product prototypes. I even have SCHMETZ needles with no color coding, dating the needles from before 2014. Time to move along my stash in assorted goodie bags! Want one?

Last week on www.facebook.com/schmetzneedles, I tested Facebook LIVE with a giveaway. Wowza, what fun! So I did two more Facebook LIVE's giving away a total of 11 awesome goodie bags.

Each Facebook LIVE includes a mini needle class, then the goody bag contents are shown. To win a bag, you must answer the given question. Each Facebook LIVE will have five winners based on your answer and randomly selected by my colleague, Paul. Winners are contacted by Facebook personal message. Winners have 24 hours to claim the goody bag.

So go to Facebook and "like" schmetzneedles. For July there are two more giveaways: Monday, July 8 at 2PM CST and Tuesday, July 9th at 10AM CST (that's Chicago's time zone). August giveaway dates will be announced on Facebook in late July. See you on Facebook!
