No Fashion Sewing Club today but plenty of people to talk to. This Expo is very well attended. Treadle got their second batch of fabric in at 4:30 and hungry sewists were hovering around it unable to wait for them to put it on the shelves! We heard that Thursday was the best day of sales, ever, for another vendor.
Peggy Sagers’ customer style show featured two sewing friends determined to win the New York buying trip prize. One of them sewed 23 garments and her friend-11!! Neither of them won the drawing but the winner had made five garments so it seemed a good outcome. And to think that there were only about three garments total last year (but our loyal Material Girl, Carrie Diamont, won so that was OK too.)
There are lots of sewing machines to test drive, unique purses made by tsunami survivors, fabric and notions, patterns and DVD’s to keep us creating for a long time. Many “Material Girls” were taking classes today too. I think our December challenge will be to incorporate something you learned at Expo into a garment.
Hope you can come to Fashion Sewing Club tomorrow at 10:15 in the Longfellow Theatre and make it a day for feeding your passion.
