The give-away prize for the month of April comes to us courtesy of Wonderfil Threads of Calgary, Canada. They have very generously donated a great pack of assorted threads which they call an Inspirations Passport Pack… kidding……there is a little booklet with ideas and info about the different threads enclosed in the box……  and the thread candy is almost irresistible! There are 15 spools of thread for our lucky April winner to look forward to experimenting with and having tons of sewing fun! Thank you, Wonderfil. We greatly appreciate your generosity and support.

This is the April give-away........thread candy for the sewer. Be sure to enter.

Want to enter the draw?   As usual, you need to send us a comment in the comment box below this blog post. We need your name and your local Janome Canada dealer. Please don’t forget your dealer name……many of you are forgetting to put this in your entry.    Please note that we are only able to ship the prize to a CANADIAN address: either your dealer or your home address if you live too far away from your local Janome dealer.

PLEASE enter ONCE only in fairness to other interested janomelife blog entrants and to save us the hassle of deleting multiple entries from the same person.  Pretty please.

We’d love it if you would tell us one thing you would sew with this great Wonderfil Thread bundle……a project idea in your head maybe? (just a sentence or 2 will be fine)

Please note: we would love to photograph you with your prize should you be the lucky winner. We will do this, if it can be arranged, so that we can share your excitement with other janomelife viewers. If you have an objection to being photographed and the pic then being published on our janomelife blog (only your first name would be used), then please consider not entering this draw. If you win, and we are able to arrange a photograph with you, it will be assumed that you have given your consent to the photograph by entering this draw. Thank you.

The whole box goes to April's lucky winner!

  1. I’ve been thinking about making a couple of things for my dog so he doesn’t ruin our furniture, these threads have the perfect palette. My Janome dealer is Pfaff on Granville in Vancouver BC


  2. I love to make quilts and donate them to the Stollerys hospital, and I would use the thread on those quilts. My dealer is the Sewing Center in Camrose.

    My Janome dealer is Sewing World. The thread would look great in my picnic blanket! I’m using different stitches to show off my squares!


  7. My wonderful Dealer is Kathy at Snip and Stitch in Nanaimo BC. The thread colours make me think of a full bodied red wine in front of a fire on a autumn day.
