You can take home a Diamond for our 75 Anniversary
In 1940 Bob McDougal opened his retail sewing machine store and called it Bob McDougal Sewing Machine Co. located in the Houston Heights area. Mr. McDougal had several grandsons who started in the business by sweeping the floor. His oldest grand-son, Doug owned and operated the original store up until his death in 2013. His youngest grandson, Dan, owns and operates McDougal Sewing Center with the main store in Katy and five Joann’s locations. The family business continues.
It is with great pride that we announce the 75th Diamond Anniversary of the McDougal name serving the Houston area. Help us cele-brate by participating in our Diamond Anniver-sary Sew-ing Contest. In order to commemorate this milestone we will be sponsoring a Sewing Challenge. The grand prize will be a Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Royale. This is a top of the line sewing and embroidery machine that retails for $10,999. It can be yours if your entry is judged to be the grand prize winner.
The contest will have three categories: Wearables, Quilting and Home Dé-cor/Crafting. The Grand Prize will be selected from among the three categories and then the top entry from each catego-ry will be awarded a prize as well. Each of these three prizes are valued at over $500. Contest winners will be announced on August 15 at 1 pm. We will be hosting a reception from 12-3, so join us for the announcement and refreshments. The entries will be displayed at our 20141 Park Row location August 15-29. Entries must be submitted no later than August 4, 2015 . You may submit your entry at any of our satellite locations.
