|This was the first time for this expo, and my head is still reeling from the information I gained. There were top notch speakers (Cynthia Guffy, Peggy Sagers, Linda MacPhee, Bobbi Bullard, Shirley Adams, Carol Lane-Saber, Linda Kubik, Claudia Buchanan, Barb Callahan, and Cecelia Podolak), breakfast and lunch provided with the weekend VIP Passes, and all in all a tremendous time to learn about sewing. It was great to be surrounded with hard-core garment sewers, and the inspirational techniques I learned will carry me over to Puyallup! Sure, there were some growing pains with a new show (weekend overlapped Quilt Market in Houston - so some vendors opted for Houston), but there was a very obvious push for input from the attendees to make the show even better next year, which will be a week later than Houston. I'm all for supporting this type of function, or we will find fewer and fewer to choose from!!
