|This review is not as detailed as it should be because I dragged myself out of a sick bed to spend two hours at the expo. I had to make a deal with the dev...er, husband to only stay that long. I didn't get to take classes or watch any of the free demos and fashion shows.
I did take a quick look at the quilt, art-to-wear, and doll exhibits. They were very impressive. I think I want to learn how to quilt.
It seemed that there were fewer vendors there this year but it was still a good show. Vogue Fabrics and Fabric.com were both there. Fabric.com needs a bigger booth with more fabric. Vogue Fabric had a bigger booth than the one they had in Puyallap. Thank goodness they were there to take even more of my money.
One exhibitor, a tapestry vendor, I remember from last year was there again this year. I didn't pay much attention last year but this year I took a closer look. They had a very wide variety of tapestries from very small to very large. I bought four monogram tapestries for pillows and two for wall hangings. I plan to check them out again next next year for gifts and such.
Several pattern designers were there. Cynthia Guffey, Peggy Sagers, Louise Cutting, and Fred Bloebaum. I'm sure there were more but I was in a hurry.
I would like to see more book vendors at this show and I would like to see even more vendors but overall it is a good show.
