Why does the entry have to be on facebook where you are FORCED to accept permissions for facebook to do stuff?

Shame.

I totally agree with lissaplus2!  I won't accept the permissions on facebook, so I can't enter this drawing.   Not everybody wants to allow that kind of all encompassing access to their personal information.

When I go to the facebook page to try and enter, there is no entry form - only a blank page...  so I can't enter... Boo Hiss I really want to win this machine!!

Same here, I don't want to accept some app that will have access to my info. Can't we have the contests in some other form? Also, what about people that are not on Facebook?

on Feb 7, 2013 9:32 AM

Yep.....it sucks. I understand companies need info to make money, but warn us prior to wasting time to try to enter a contest. Sorry, I'd love the machine but it's not worth giving my info away.......Think of other ways to entice customers....

on Feb 7, 2013 12:28 PM

Facebook requires apps for contests. Rest assured Interweave nor the contest provider are privy to any of your Facebook information by accepting the app and entering.

If you don’t feel comfortable entering via Facebook, feel free to send you submission to socialmedia@interweave.com. Just include name/email/zip code. We don’t want anyone to miss out! ~Steph

would love to have a new sewing machine, but I can't do it via facebook. I know this would be free advertising and I understand that but this world is getting too smart and too crazy for me. So if I can't win via an entry that I type, then so be it. I still like the site.

This machine would be great to carry to my quilting group, as the one I have is too heavy for me to carry. I am disabled and only able to help my group on Chairity Day, & cannot afford to buy another machine.  Thank you for giving me a chance to win one.

Bad idea to run this contest through Face Book.  Singer's decision, I'm sure, but I agree with most of the other comments here...too bad, I won't enter and regret that I have no chance of winning the machine .  Hope Singer gets this feedback!

I, like many others, and  do not subscribe to Facebook for  the same reasons, and therefore cannot enter.  Perhaps Singer will realize when they hear about the comments that they need to offer other methods for entry. (Thanks to Joanchek for information about Interweave. Will try that.)

All that being said, I love Singer products. I would really like a machine like this "Sweet" one to take with me when I go out of town or sewing retreats.

I, like many others, do no utilize Facbook for the reasons already stated. Perhaps Singer (and other vendors) will read these comments and realize that and use other methods for contests. Now, that being said, I do want to say that I Love Singer products. I have used their machines all my life. I would love to win this "Sweet" machine to use at wewing retreats and take with me when I go out of town.

(Thanks Joancheck, will try the interweave site for entry.)

I agree with many who have posted about the restriction of entering via Facebook. I am an avid FB user, but I am careful about allowances to others of private information and solicitation, so I won't be entering this contest. Too bad; I love this site and would love a chance at winning this machine. My privacy, however, is more important.

you will lose a lot of customers and people because of this

Thank you Joanchek for providing the simple link that enabled me to enter this contest. I too do not like using Fecebook, although I do have an account with them. I realize that in today's fast paced world, everything is interconnected, but to have to be a part of a social network that really does not have any reason to be associated with entering a contest, does seem to be exclusionary. Thanks again, Joan!

While I greatly appreciate the opportunity to win this sewing machine, I, too, am weary and frankly quite cranky with numerous companies making Facebook the go-to place for coupons and contests. Don't they understand that using Facebook opens their customers up to fraud and identity theft?

I hope Interweave is paying attention to these comments regarding the disgusting practice of linking everything to facebook. Some of us are still hanging on to a modicum of privacy in spite of a world that is hell-bent on snatching it away from us.

Singer has been making wonderful machines for decades! Who among us would give up a featherweight or a 15-91? Didn't think so.

Thanks for letting us enter without FB and maybe next time you can skip FB altogether.

YAY! I'm adding my name to the list of objectors. There should ALWAYS be more than one way to enter a contest. After all, this site is about creativity and exploring options on how to create. I'll be entering via the fork in the road,

Feels good to be among other creatives that speak up.

I agree with all the other posters about not wanting to use Face Book to enter any contest. I am getting tired of websites wanting everyone to access their information through FB, or asking to be "liked" on FB. I have quit using it because my daily life does not belong to the world! I used the alternate address to enter the contest.

What does that mean? I went to interweave.com, what steps do we take after that? Until you respond...

I'm sad about the required promotion of Facebook in order to have a chance to win this Singer sewing machine. I began sewing for my daughter in the 70s, sewing home decor and now for my granddaughters. My 30+ yo sewing machine has taken it's last loud breath before passing. The last vestige of crafting happiness has fallen and finances keep me from purchasing another. Not being a sore loser, I'm sure another deserving individual will win this machine. Good luck. : )

Yes, contests more and more require facebook and I DO NOT want to be on facebook. At all and probably ever. I do not want even understand the attaction to this invasive activity. What I have seen through friends who are on facebook is meaningless drama. and tedious communication.

I do not appreciate being excluded from these chances, small though they are, but I will not be forces into participation.

So, let me see if I have this right...I can enter the contest via Facebook, BUT there doesn't seem to be any way to access what I need on Facebook, AND if I don't like to use Facebook I am out of luck.  Is there really a sewing machine that will be given away??  There are a lot of people who would like to enter and not compromise themselves in the process.

on Feb 9, 2013 3:05 PM

I'm joining the growing number of people here who object to having to use a FB app to sign up for this give-away. I will not use such apps. So I cannot enter? And some people refuse to use or simply are not on Facebook. What about them? Is there any other way to enter this give-away without having to go through FB and have to use a FB app that takes our personal information?

I'm glad to see I'm not alone in refusing to go to Facebook for a contest - no matter how enticing the prize!

It would have been helpful if you had added the alternate entry method to the actual post instead of just in the comments. I almost closed this when I saw the Facebook requirement and I would suspect others didn't look at the comments section after they saw the restriction.

I hope that you will pass on to the folks at Singer that many of your followers don't want to expose themselves to the dangers or invasions of Facebook.

on Feb 9, 2013 9:45 PM

I totally agree with all those who don't like the idea of being forced to use facebook to enter. I give Singer an F minus for this manipulative move.

I agree that entering via Facebook is a "no-no", so thanks for the email link. However, I don't have a "zipcode" - just a "postcode" as I am in the UK. Do I qualify to enter this comp or is it restricted to US residents?

I also don't enter contests that operate through Facebook.  But be sure to read the privacy policy if you use the UPICKEM site.  You, like me, may not like that policy of F&W either, to collect information on every site you go to and on your computer.  Be wary, gals!!

Does sending an email to interweave bypass this F&W agreement also?

I missed the contest, but I do have a tip for you: set up a dummy fb account only for entering contests. I don't think mine has anything personal but some version of my name on it, and my secondary email address. That's it. If it took me as much as two minutes to set up, I'd be surprised.
