#25 Winners for Wantobe Quilters Bernina Sewing Machine and Aurifil threads are....

Congrats ladies you are both winners this morning
Chris(tel) you have won
this Bernina B 215 

And Sharon your blog sponsor
has won 12 larger Aurifil threads..

( I have sent both a personal email
to take a peak...sew YOU know it is YOU)
( we had 16 Chris (tel) (tine) (sy)
and 14 Sharons....

To all those who entered
we still have 2 more machines to giveaway
on another day...1 for the Wantobes
and 1 for a Quilter...

This new BERNINA 215 is characterized by a youthful appeal which is combined with a range of
added value features to give you,  more sewing pleasure than ever before. Enjoy
modern, creative sewing with BERNINA: their wide range of accessories as well as  their  sewing publications brimming with imaginative ideas and practical tips all add to the joy of sewing BERNINA style.

Christel you have won the option of having the rose skin...
it will come in your box and you can put it on or leave
it as it above...I personally like the roses....

Your machine will be shipped to your closest dealer
and you will be given lessons on how to operate this fine
new machine...

click to enlarge..oh yes..do that lol

And Sharon  your blog sponsor will win this..
You don't think I would forget  do you...?
Pleased to hear it was you who won! 
I am sure you will enjoy these threads for at least
a week...( the way you sew...kidding aside of course
I don't think you will be needing any threads for a long time)

12 of their top selling Aurifil threads

( oh and this was my calculations..am I correct have no idea, if you can make
that many quilts...) 
1,422 yards (1,300 m) of thread on each spool x 12 =
17,604 yards (15,600 m) , which if you used 1/4 of each spool
that would mean you could make at least 48 lap quilts
or something like that..lol
ok, it's a lot of thread..

Big thanks goes out to Jane, Bernina, Aurifil and YOU
for making each day as exciting as the last...
YOU really do matter-- sew we keep serving up 
guests, sponsors and infotainment...
Thank YOU!

on the sewing machine ...NONE!
( but yes  the thread but it will be the lowest rate)
