SVP WORLDWIDE ANNOUNCES GRAND PRIZE WINNER OF THE HUSQVARNA VIKING® DESIGNER DIAMOND™

ILLINOIS NATIVE WINS SEWING LOTTERY, TAKES HOME TOP-OF-THE-LINE SEWING AND EMBROIDERY MACHINE VALUED AT NEARLY $9,500

June 7, 2010 - SVP Worldwide, one of the world’s largest sewing machine companies and source of the SINGER®, HUSQVARNA VIKING® and PFAFF® sewing machines collections, announced that the grand prize winner of the DESIGNER DIAMOND™ Giveaway is Catherine Goad of Harvard, Illinois. Ms. Goad, a retiree and grandmother who entered the contest at the Viking Sewing Gallery located inside her local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store in Rockford, Illinois, is now the proud owner of a HUSQVARNA VIKING® DESIGNER DIAMOND™ Sewing and Embroidery Machine, valued at $9,499.
 
“I hadn’t been able to focus on sewing for many years, but after retiring I decided to get back to it,” said Ms. Goad. “Just last year, I bought a HUSQVARNA VIKING® SAPPHIRE™ and began quilting. I was also interested in embroidery, but another machine was not in my budget at the time. Recently, I stopped into JoAnn’s to pick up some supplies and I saw that the Viking Sewing Gallery was having a special demonstration on the DESIGNER DIAMOND™. I never thought I’d win. I am delighted and I can’t wait to explore my creativity and try all types of new projects.”
 
Offering the ultimate interactive touch screen controls as well as one of the largest embroidery areas and the longest free arm in the home sewing industry, the HUSQVARNA VIKING® DESIGNER DIAMOND™ sewing and embroidery machine sets a new standard and provides the capabilities, convenience and cutting-edge technology to endlessly inspire sewing and embroidery enthusiasts. To enter the DESIGNER DIAMOND™ giveaway, consumers were asked to test and evaluate three of the machine’s innovative features and fill out an official entry form. Ms. Goad’s entry was randomly selected from more than 36,000 submissions.
 
Ms. Goad was presented with her new DESIGNER DIAMOND™ sewing and embroidery machine on Friday, May 28th at the Viking Sewing Gallery inside Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store at 6280 E. State Street, Rockford, IL 61108.
 
During the month of June, sewing enthusiasts can visit their local Viking Sewing Gallery and enter the Who Dunnit? contest for a chance to win their choice of a HUSQVARNA VIKING® HUSKYLOCK™ s21 overlock machine (valued over $1,100)  or SAPPHIRE™ 835 sewing machine (valued over $1,500).
