|I have been going to the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo for about 3 years now. I take off from work for four days. IT is like a vacation to me. I go to the "More the day before" class which are actually "learn how" classes and you get to sew on the lastest sewing machines. I had thought they had stopped having the expo because before I started going back, I had not been to one for a very long time. I happen to see the brochure in the fabric store and was very excited and I started going again. It is coming up at the end of March 2008 again and you better believe I will be there. I have not won a door prize yet, but I hope this year. They raffle off sewing machine and I need another sewing machine like I need a hole in the head. I especially love to visit the Vogue Fabric stand because I am a "fabriholic" and I would like to know who else is a "fabriholic". So if you have not been to this expo in your city, plan to visit another city and check it out. You will be surrounded by sewing machines, notions, threads, quilts, fabrics, crafts, knitting, crochet, etc. Hope you enjoy it as I did.
