Because everyone needs a House…
A gathering of wiener dogs makes for an unlikely sewing venue, but such is the case for wienerfest 2011 in Thamesford Ontario, June 25. Wienerfest is a gathering of hundreds of dachshunds from across North America and beyond. This one day festival features all sorts of vendors, fun and games – but the highlight is the wiener races (Ha! racing is not just for greyhounds).When organizer Linda Collier saw Marvin’s poster at a local Janome dealership, she just had to invite him to her show! Marvin can’t attend in person, but he will be there in spirit at our fun & display table, piled high with Marvin plush pups.
When Linda contacted us about getting a poster to display at the show, we wanted to do one better. Janome will be launching a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada. For a donation of $10 or more, you can receive a thank you in the form of your own plush Marvin doggie.
In addition, if you are bringing your ‘best friend’ along to the show, you can also have a photo of your pup taken in our “Find a Friend” for Marvin challenge and be entered in the draw to win a FREE My Style sewing machine. Wooftastic! We’ll post updates here or on our Facebook page.
