Guess who won a Husqvarna Viking SERGER?!

on September 5 | in Contests & Giveaways | by | with 37 Comments

We selected the lucky winner of our BIG Back to School Husqvarna Viking s21 Serger Giveaway (retail value $1199)! As you know, Husqvarna Viking develops, produces, markets and sells high quality household sewing machines and related products that enhance the joy of creative sewing, and have been doing so since 1872. The Husqvarna Viking s21 Serger features 4, 3, 2 thread sewing, 21 stitches, differential feed, adjustable stitch length and so much more!

We want to extend a big thank you to Husqvarna Viking for their giveaway sponsorship! We were excited by the almost 1000 entries and wish we had 1000 sergers to give away (plus one or two to keep for ourselves!). In the end our staff and board members were blown away by one particular entry, chock full of creativity…

Congratulations, Tabitha!

Tabitha and her husband collaborated on this Stitch By Stitch music video, featuring an original song created for the serger contest. We love that Tabitha stepped out of her comfort zone a little to create such an incredible, memorable entry. Tabitha writes a little more about the song and video on her Refugee Crafter blog.

Again, we wish we had so many more sergers to give away. We were particularly touched by stories of families with special needs, where greater ease in making clothing alterations would be a big help. We also saw lots of really bad seams, read some amazing poetry and really just loved all of the super-clever efforts out there. A few additional favorites for you to enjoy:

Thanks, Everyone!

    Guess I’ll have to put up with this neck and back ache as I continue to sew for the grand kids, they love the things I make for them, how can I stop?

  33. Tom the DH says:

    WOW!!! First of all, that was just totally awesome and amazing and the wife and I were floored on how great the song, story, video, lyrics, and the way everything fit so perfectly with life, sewing, SewMamaSew, this contest, and the pursuit of happiness. Secondly, I just have to ask, did anyone else even come close? That was so good it’s almost unfair to us mere mortals.

  34. Amber says:

  35. Rafael's mum says:

    Congratulations Tabitha! I am not surprised the sew mama sew team was blown away, so am I !! You have not only a beautiful voice, the song is great and the video just amazing.. Worthy of a Top 40 entry any day (although I think sewing songs might have a limited audience lol!). I really enjoyed it. Going to watch it again!
