Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day! A world without sewing machines… I don’t even want to think of it.

Picking out a sewing machine is like buying a new car. There are endless options with varying features and details, all of them will get you from A to B, but the best part is the ride. If you’re going  to log a solid 12 hours on the sewing machine, you better enjoy the ride because everyone knows that the best sewing machine is the one being used!

Which brings us to today’s subject, the Baby Lock Jazz Sewing Machine! Baby Lock Sewing has so graciously offered a machine for us to give away, so we just had to choose the Jazz! It is fast, smooth, and easy to operate.

Here are some of the reasons we love it:

  • 12 inch workspace to the right of the needle… plenty of room for maneuvering large projects
  • Sews up to 1,000 stitches per minute… super fast and super accurate!
  • 28 unique stitches… well-equipped to take your creativity to new heights
  • 9 feet attachments
  • Needle Threader
  • Knee Lifter
  • …and so many more features!

Choose how you want to enter below and we will choose one winner for the sewing machine on Monday, June 19th, at 5pm! We will also choose 6 people to each win two yards of a sewing-themed fabric!
