Friday Night Live @ Sew Expo


It’s your chance for an evening of fun and luck! Luck? If you come to Friday Night Live at Sew Expo, Puyallup, WA on February 27th you’ll have a chance to win not one, not two, but FIVE machines!  Baby Lock is giving away over $6,000 worth of machines. All you have to do is buy a ticket to Friday Night Live and come and enjoy the show. Of course you have to be present to win. And why wouldn’t you? Because not only do you have a chance to win a machine but you’ll also enjoy a night of education and hilarity!

My stitching Sister and I have been working on our presentation – it’s has a Tonight Show theme and although I can’t promise you an appearance from Jimmy Fallon or Justin Timberlake – I can tell you we will have as much fun in Puyallup as they have in Times Square.  What can you expect?  The traditional Tonight Show Friday night format kicks off with Thank You notes. These thank you notes won’t have anything to do with New York tourists. Oh no, our thank you notes are focused on our industry.  We’ll share our tongue-in-cheek gratitude to Singer, Viking, Pfaff, Brother, Bernina and Baby Lock.

A few weeks ago, I hinted to the possibility of a lip sync battle performed by our special guests.  And our special guests have agreed!  Right now, they are working on their routines and perfecting their form.  I have to say they are not only great sports but they’re bringing their ‘game’ – full of enthusiasm for this unique opportunity to showcase their previously hidden talents. Who are they?  None other than the President of Baby Lock, Steve Jeffrey and local favorite, Eddie Schultz of Issaquah Sewing & Vacuum!  So who do you think they should impersonate? Jennifer Hudson, The Bee Gees, Elvis, Rod Stewart, Barry White, Stevie Wonder, Johnny Cash? Oh my, the possibilities are endless!

But we know you want more than fun – you want to learn and win some prizes. We have the fun handled, the education is a given (Marie and I are unveiling our top 30 embroidery tips) and we’ll hand out tons of prizes!  Over $6200 worth of prizes!  Five machines – complements of Baby Lock plus books and notions from Designs in Machine Embroidery.

  • Although you’re taking a risk, you can attempt this on your own. To
    take hold of this gentle wisdom and to remember that if I let go and be held by Mother Nature’s ebb and flow that I too will be brought back
    to pools of stillness. There are a total of nine unique habitats where
    you may discover many different types of wildlife animals and over one hundred species
    of birds that you may enjoy seeing while on your Florida vacation.

    I would love to win one for my granddaughter. I’m teaching her how to sew. Had great time at the Expo.

  • Can you tell us more about this? I’d care to find out some additional information.

  • They can also provide you the total security systems installation for
    your residential or commercial purposes.
    Usually a security code is used to open these kinds of locks.

    Make sure to stretch your muscle before, and after each set.
    Another imperative factor pertaining to building of muscles is to have proper nutrition before the start of workout.
    It doesn’t really matter whether you are seated or standing while performing the exercise.

  • Dena

    Hotel California by the Eagles, there is another one but can only think of the lyrics. 🙂

    You just need to take them in limited quantity and balance the extra caloric counts with exercise.

    For lunch have a little good quality protein such
    as turkey breast or white fish. By planning out
    a series of smaller meals you can reduce hunger cravings and help
    to avoid overeating.
