I spent the last weekend at the Sewing and Stitchery Expo held at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup. My head is still reeling. I had read that it was the largest sewing expo in the nation. After attending it, I don't doubt that fact at all.
I learned so much and would highly recommend it to anyone into sewing, textiles, or other stitching arts. There were a shocking number of people there but the staff did a great job keeping order to the crowds. Their presenters were exceptionally knowledgeable, humorous and extremely engaging. I definitely had a few "light bulb" moments in their classes.
I left the expo better educated and brimming over with inspiration (as well as a lot of money lighter). Now, if only they sold extra minutes in the day to go along with all of that inspiration!
The expo is a yearly event and...I can't wait to go again next year!
