The Sewing & Stitchery Expo is the largest consumer sewing show in USA offering four days of sewing techniques, project seminars, hands-on workshops, professional fashion parades and exciting evening special events.
This Show has more sewing, dressmaking, patterns and the like than any other. This is my fourth time here (maybe fifth?) and I just love the atmosphere. It has the best sewing education and inspirational classes ranging from basic sewing to advanced techniques covering topics in fashion sewing and quilting.
The Show has had more visitors each day as the Show progresses and is entirely different in display to our Shows at home. Here is an image of an aisle, taken at random, giving you an idea of stand structure compared to ours. Please note this was taken near closing time so ignore the few people standing around. It has been busy!
If you get a headache during the Show, they have a good remedy which I've not seen before, so knowing me, I HAD to have some! Hope you can make out both sides our our heads as the scissors get a little lost in the background. So examine the photo closely again! The scissors really do go right through the head, thus a great remedy for that headache!
Now if you wish to update your old sewing machine, simply give it a "paint job". I doubt if I could work on a machine with all that distraction though. Claire Rowley from Creative Sewing Feet actually gives classes on how to personalize your own sewing machine in a similar manner. Not for me! I do love the products she has invented though, which we sell, of course.
