The winners have been announced for the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores Sewing Summit Trip Giveaway prizes, including the grand prize giveaway of an entire trip to the Sewing Summit Conference this September, including airfare, hotel and ticket. The first prize winner of the trip was Ms. JoDee Phillips, stay at home Mother of 5, who was thrilled to win, “As a mom to five amazing children, I rarely have the opportunity to do something purely for myself - this giveaway is giving me that chance, and for that reason alone, I couldn’t be more excited! I am looking forward to everything the trip has to offer, it is a dream come true!” The runner up winners received prizes from Pellon, Coats & Clark, and Fat Quarter Shop.
The Sewing Summit trip giveaway was ran on a goodwill platform, asking entrants to nominate someone they believed deserved to win a trip to Sewing Summit.

With over 1,000 entrants, and social media hashtags like #WinaTriptoSewingSummit and #SewJoAnn involved, the word spread fast about this incredible giveaway. Jessica Abbott, founder of The Sewing Rabbit and host of the Sewing Summit Trip Giveaway states, “It is always so heartwarming to be able to run such a fabulous giveaway and to truly be able to give back to those who support you. When you hear the replies of those who enter, their stories and their genuine love for the timeless craft of sewing, it makes everything worthwhile. I love knowing that the winner will be blessed with this incredible trip!”
