Just got back from the sewing expo in Cleveland. This was my first one. It was packed! I came back with two kinds of fabric from Vogue, a really neat pair of tweezers, a pattern and a french curve. I couldn't believe all the quilts there either.

I didn't realize it was still going on today. I went yesterday. Stayed for a couple of hours. I got a couple of fabrics from Vogue Fabrics. Didn't spend too much there because I know I can always buy from them online.

I blew my budget with the vendor from Ontario (the name is escaping me right now). I got 3 lengths of 100% wool.

I wish I had been thinking to bring along my sheers to be sharpened.

I only spent a couple of hours there and I mostly went for apparel fabric. I couldn't fit any of the workshops into my schedule.

Must be The Wool House -- what did you get?

I had my eye on a couple of pieces in Minneapolis but slapped my hand as I had lots of wools to sew in my stash.

Yes The Wool House was it. Last year was my first time going and I had forgotten there was a lower level and had already spent my allowance prior to reaching him. But I did remember that he had good wool and was hoping he'd be back this year. I specifically went looking for GOOD fabrics which I can't buy locally.

I got a FABULOUS piece of plaid wool for a coat. It's cream with I want to say orange & grey stripes. I also got a piece of lighter weight camel colored wool for a jacket and a piece of silken wool for a dress.

I got a few things from Vogue Fabrics but not much. I know I can shop on their website anytime. I really want to take a road trip and visit one of their stores one day.

Those seemed to be the only fashion fabric vendors there. Everything else I remember seeing was quilting fabric.

Oh! And I also had the opportunity to meet Peggy from Silouette Patterns! I didn't even realize she would be there. I bought a couple of patterns from her.

Can't wait to see what you make up with your pieces. I was really tempted by a piece he had that was in the beige colourway and had a Celtic knot appearance to it -- really had to slap my hand.

I promised myself that if I sewed up a good quantity of my current stash before I go to the Minneapolis expo again in November, I would allow myself to buy some nice wool for a coat (can't buy it locally so that's part of the rationale).

I bought my first Silhouette pattern. It's #625 the Kaitlynn's blouse. Unfortunately, no reviews on it yet.

This is my absolute fave purchase from the expo. It is 100% alpaca wool.


I'm leaning towards making a coat from Butterick 5685

That's gorgeous and I think it will look great in that coat pattern. Can't wait to see the finished project.

My first expo and some fabulous fabrics there but some of them were way out of my price range.
