Baby Lock Announces Winner Of New Symphony autographed By Eleanor Burns

ST. LOUIS – Baby Lock has announced the winner of the Symphony of Quilting Sweepstakes, an online contest held this summer. The proud winner of a new Symphony autographed by Eleanor Burns is Mary Zembrod of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The machine will be presented to Zembrod during an event at B-Sew Inn in Tulsa on October 14 .

"I was beyond belief at first. All of my family and friends are just as exited as I am," says Zembrod, a retired college professor of early childhood and human development. "I can't wait to try it out right away!"

During the Symphony of Quilting Sweepstakes, quilters visited the website to learn about the new features of the Symphony, Baby Lock's newest top-of-the-line quilting and sewing machine. Each week a new feature was revealed, including the Automatic Fabric Sensor System, Advanced Pivoting Feature, Alternate Bobbin Case, 460 stitches and 17 accessory feet. Quilters could enter each week for up to nine chances to win.

Each feature was presented with a fun video from famed Quilt in a Day PBS show host Eleanor Burns, a fan and owner of the Symphony who signed the grand prize machine. Zembrod, a lifelong quilter, is a big Eleanor Burns fan.

"All of the features are very exciting and I'm excited to explore them," says Zembrod. The feature she's looking forward to the most is the 22" x 16" extension table and large workspace. However, since this will be her first Baby Lock machine, she's looking forward to all of Baby Lock's innovations, down to the Automatic Thread Cutter.

The Symphony will be presented to Zembrod at a Prairie Queen Quilters event at B-Sew Inn in Tulsa, Oklahoma at 10 am. For more information, please call 1-800-750-4480 or visit www.bsewinn.com.

The Symphony is part of Baby Lock's full line of quilting machines. From those first quilt blocks to the final topstitch, Baby Lock has a machine for every level of quilter. Visit your Retailer today to experience the Symphony for yourself.
