Janome Canada was once again proud to be the sponsor of the Grand Door prize draw at the Spring Creativ Festival held recently in Mississauga, Ontario…..yes, during the weekend of that nasty ice storm?!

We are happy to announce that the winner of the Janome MC500E embroidery machine    is Ivana Petric of Toronto. Congratulations, Ivana. Nori Richens of the Creativ Festival called her to tell her the good news and she was super thrilled as she has an older Janome and was really hoping she could get  a new one….. Dreams come true! The machine will be shipped to you shortly, Ivana.

      Hi Fran,
      Yes, we are thrilled to announce the winner. Just an FYI: the prize was open to people who attended the Spring Creativ in Mississuaga recently. My guess would be that most of those attending would have been local sewing and quilting enthusiasts from the GTA. All who attended were given A Grand Door prize ticket when they came in so the draw was open to show attendees only.
