Bend woman hopeful $10-million PCH winner
by Bend Weekly News Sources

It may sound like a commercial, but its true – a Bend woman is one of only 210 people who could be surprised next Wednesday by the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol with roses, balloons and a check for $10-million.

Jodi Farm will know next Wednesday whether she will walk away with the large prize.  She has officially notified yesterday that she has won at least $1,000 – and that if she is the $10-million winner the prize patrol will be ringing her doorbell unannounced on February 28 with television cameras in tow.

Farm’s family owns and operates Gingerbread Mountain out of their home, offering top quality hand-crafted products.  According to the company’s web site, Jodi taught herself to crochet when she was nine and took up macramé at 14.  She made her first quilt, entirely by hand, at age 16 – then moved on to include candles, dolls, and other hand-made items.

Farm was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease (a disorder of the inner ear affecting hearing and balance) about eight years ago, and she and her 21-year old son Sean were both diagnosed during the summer of 2006 with rheumatoid arthritis.   Farm’s web site says her medical conditions sometimes force her to take breaks, but between flares she “pours her heart and soul” into the sewing and creating she loves so much.
