I just came back from the Worcester Quilt Expo that I attented 4/10-4/12. I had an absolutely amazing time and can't wait to attend next year. It was wonderful. The classes were great and very informative. I did take wall to wall classes so, that may be why my review is better than some. My favorite class was with Kim Montagnese. It was a neat quilt block called really,really broken hearts. I learned alot of different techniques in that class and made a friend too!She also has great fabric at the cotton candy quilt shop that has the cutest selection of quality fabrics. I exchanged phone #'s and e-mails with 3 women. There is nothing more inspiring than sewing with a group of women as excited as you! So many sewing machines, embroideries going on, cutting, ironing..it was just great. Also, another teacher I loved was Mickey Depree. I took and applique class with her. She is a real sweetheart and so kind and patient.Deb Karasik is also an excellent teacher and told us how she started just 7 years ago and know teaches and publishes books!I also took a lecture class on factory methods for garment sewers with Peggy Sagers.Boy, in an hour long class, that woman is some wealth of info. I will definitely look for more of her classes next year. She really simplifies garment sewing in ways you could never guess..amazing! She even told me I could call her personally if I had any sewing questions. I can't say enough good things. The people were friendly, the atmosphere and convention site very nice and even though people didn't like the vending, I managed to spend plenty and come home with some neat notions,rulers and rotary cutter. Along with some fabrics,threads,stabilizers,and patterns. I live on Long Island so, it was a trek but, worth every penny.Everyone should give it a try and take advantage of the wealth of knowledge these professionals have. Hey, it motivated me enough to clean up my sewing room..LOL...Elaine
