Want a chance to win some very cool – and pricey prizes? All it takes are four simple steps to enter the Everybody Smiles with Designs contest. All you have to do is ‘like us’ on Facebook ( Post a photo on the Designs in Machine Embroidery Facebook page showing your winning smile while holding any copy of Designs in Machine Embroidery magazine. You can have a lot of fun with this – shoot it in your sewing room, in front of your favorite embroidery project, at your local dealer or buried in your favorite stash!
Tag Designs in Machine Embroidery in your photos, add a caption to your photo and consider yourself entered to win over $6000 worth of prizes – including the grand prize a Koala studio. You’ll find a ton of prizes from Klasse, Sulky, Creative Options, Clover, Madeira, Embroidery Library, Urban Threads, Oliso and Baby Lock and more.

You have 19 chances to win. The top prize is a Koala Studio and you get to choose the style and color you want. Next, there’s a Madeira Thread Chest (fully stocked with 194 spools and Amazing Designs embroidery collections) followed by the Incredible Threadable Embroidery Box, a nifty double-duty thread storage system full of 80 spools plus bobbin thread.
Baby Lock has so generously contributed a machine trolley and trolley tote for hitting the road with your machine. Have you had your eye on that too-hot-to handle Oliso Smart Iron Pro? You might just win it if you enter the Everybody Smiles with Designs contest. If you do take home the Smart Iron you’ll find it’s not too hot to handle, in fact it’s quite cool. It’s a high tech iron that activates with the touch of your hand.
If you’re a Sulky fan, you’ll be glad to know you might win Sulky’s Embroidery Starter Collection with 27 of the most used 40 wt. rayon colors stashed in a Slimline Storage Box.
Two lucky winners will enjoy $100 shopping spree coupons from two of our favorite design companies: Embroidery Library and Urban Threads.
Of course, what’s a sewing contest without some much-needed tools? Our friends at Floriani have donated Floriani’s Favorite Embroidery Tools Kit which includes EZ Snips, angled tweezers, 4 ½” large ring micro tip scissors, appliqué scissors and 5” straight trimmers.
Hoping to win an heirloom to pass on to the next generation? The Nantucket Sewing Basket could be yours. You’ll treasure the American dark walnut and maple dowel inlay on the lid and basket base.
We all need something to stitch on and many of us turn to The Sewphisticated Stitcher for fun and funky blanks. They have contributed a Dream Bundle of Blanks that includes a sport bottle, damask apron, damask print canvas bag, zebra print mouse pad and a laptop sleeve – all tucked into the collapsible (and embroiderable!)

      Hello Natalie,
      Great question! We’d love to have someone overseas win– however the contest is open to individuals living in the continental US only– due to the nature and size of the prizes.

  • Gail Beam

    Wow, There are all kinds of super neat prizes !! Any of which would be fun to win!

  • Barb Dircks

    Fantastic Gifts!! Gotta go grab a camera and someone to take the picture!!

    • eileenroche

      Fantastic! Can’t wait to see your photo Barb!

  • Peggy Schroeder

    hmmmm, I wonder if there is a way to add the picture (You, my friend, and I) that I took when you and Marie were out here in Santa Rosa; first I would have to clean the sewing rooms (I have two), then I would have to join Facebook, then get the picture taken and downloaded, I guess I have a lot to do!!! Oh, and of course I have to make chocolates, cause what is a smiling picture without the necessary staple of the sewing room—Chocolate.
    Sounds like fun, will have to give it a try.

    Hope you both had a wonderful cruise, wish I could have been there.

  • Peggy Schroeder

    Yes, I have quilted with my embroidery machine—-works great. I also made a queen size quilt a couple of years ago that I embroidered all the blocks for it. I did bright colors, one color for each block on a black background. Then I did sashing in the same color around the blocks. I love it, all those pretty colors on black and I have it hanging in my living room with the really, really, pretty blue ribbon that it won in the quilt show!!!

  • Cheryl Allen

    Love to do the quilting and piecing on my embroidery machine. Especially because it’s very accurate and takes a lot less time to get a product that is very appealing to the eye! LOVE IT!

    You happen to be some excellent tips there.

    I did a search of the topic, and there was agreement on most of the internet log.

    It’s best to get all the information about insurance companies, get multiple quotes from different companies and also be updated about latest insurance news before
    going to any insurance agent. This was exactly in the 6th day
    of august, in 1990; which marked the fourth day after their Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.
    Yes, this is the way of the world, but it
    doesn’t have to be your world.

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply
    placing the other person’s web site link on your page at suitable place and other person will also
    do same in support of you.
