I was out and about a couple weeks ago and checking email on my phone (like most of us do at some point), and saw this in an email:
“Guess what? You won! You entered the Gammill Charm contest on TheQuiltShow.com and your name was chosen among thousands of entrants to receive this amazing machine. ….”
I read it and stopped… and then thought, “Yeah, right!” The next morning when I was back at a computer, I pulled it up again to take a closer look at it. Email addresses showed John Anderson of The Quilt Show and included Betsey of Gammill. It looked legit, but I still couldn’t really believe it.
I emailed with Betsey giving her my info. Honestly, it wasn’t until a regional Gammill dealer called me to congratulate me and discuss delivery that I truly believed I had actually won a Gammill Charm! You know when you enter these things that someone has to win, but you never expect to be THE one out of how many thousands of entries. Mark, at the Stitch n Frame in Vicksburg, MS, was so nice and I know I will enjoy working with him as he arranges delivery and sets up my machine….Yes, he actually makes the trip and sets the machine up! How awesome is that? I loved the fact that it was the Stitch n Frame that is providing the machine. They are an hour and a half from me and I love stopping in their shop when driving through Vicksburg, and their online shopping is great. Their fabric selection and service are just wonderful.
Okay, back to the Charm… here she is! This beauty has a 18″ x 8″ throat…can you imagine the room in this thing?! The table has a 12″ leaf in the back and another leaf on the left side to increase the table space when quilting big quilts.
I’m a little blown away!
And I have to find a place for her!!
Sorry for the excessive use of exclamation points, but truly, this is an Exclamation Point type of post.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have a safe and blessed holiday,
