KBTC Pledge Drive a Huge Success

paul kbtc pledge drive

First of all, to all of you who donated to KBTC on Saturday during the pledge drive - THANK YOU!!! We surpassed our goal and raised over $20,000. It was a great day and one of the most successful on air pledge drives ever! All of us from Quality Sewing & Vacuum Centers had a great time answering phones and taking pledges. Thank you for your generous donations.

If you don't know about the sewing shows on KBTC, you should check them out. Every Saturday morning from 8am- 12:30pm, KBTC airs nine different sewing and quilting programs. We are so lucky to live in the Puget Sound where we get this great programming. In many cities across the country they only get a few shows at some obscure time of the day. Quality Sewing & Vacuum Centers has always felt that this programming is a benefit for the sewing, quilting and crafting community and we have underwritten these shows for many years.

Last Saturday many of the Quality Sewing management team, including myself, volunteered at the KBTC pledge drive. We pitched in and answered phones, taking pledges and giving interviews. How many of you saw me? I was so nervous, I felt like a deer in headlights but it was fun anyway.

Plus, in conjunction with Brother our new joint sponsor, we are gave away two Brother Innovis 900D Sewing & Embroidery Machines. Paul did a great job showing off these awesome machines at each break. He is pictured above with Jane Moxey from KBTC. Everyone who pledged was entered into the drawing.

One machine went the drawing winner, Jannice Gubser. The other machine went to Susan Harmon (photo left) for the highest pledge on Saturday morning. We also gave away Sew Fun Memberships and Quality Sewing 25th Year Anniversary Sweatshirts for people who met certain pledge levels. It was a fun day and it is great to know that we are helping keep sewing and quilting programs on air in the Puget Sound.
