This is the 15th year for the Victoria Sewing Show. It was a week earlier this year, which meant many of the usual presenters were at Puyallip instead. I was worried that this would negatively impact the classroom sessions. I was wrong!

Claudine Pouliot from New Brunswick, gave several incredible sessions ranging from an all day body mapping workshop, a 3 hour colour workshop and a amazing session on sewing without pins. We even eased a sleeve head and sewed in place without a pin. I would not miss another opportunity to see her in action.

Karen Erickson gave a great series of sessions both lecture style and hands on to teach us how to make a slipcover. I has taken a slipcovering workshop in the past, but her method made sense to me.

I did not take in any of the free sstage shows this year, I was too busy in classes.

My only disappointment was that some of the regulars who bring greaat fabric and patterns that are not easily available in Victoria were not there. I especially missed Sun Drop Textiles and Linda MacPhee.

And to top if all off, I bought myself a Janome CP900 for $288.00 as a show special.

Oh I also met Joyce S, who is a lurker here at PR and her sister Jean.

I was so sorry to miss the show this year. My travelling companion came down with a cold, and I didn't want to go on my own. I have been doing more sewing this year and wanted to check out some new fabrics. I live in Cobble Hill and have to go to Duncan or Victoria to shop for sewing stuff. I am so envious that you got to attend so many great workshops. Is it fair to the workshop presenters to ask you to pass along some of their tips?
