I attended the expo this past Saturday, Sept. 27 2008, with one of my sisters. Keep in mind, this is the first sewing expo I have ever attended.

We really had a good time visiting with the owners of the various shops represented at each booth. We did a little shopping, too.

Upon entering the expo, I immediately noticed that my Babylock dealer had a booth set up right in front. I stopped over and said hello, and my sister got to see her first embroidery machines. She liked them and was impressed with their capabilities.

We wandered over to Haberman Fabrics' booth, I will have to visit them in Royal Oak, MI to pick up fabric for my next few projects. Their fabric selection was vast and of good quality. A little pricey but not shocking. You get what you pay for sometimes. I loved their wools and found fabrics for a coat ensemble for my grand-daughters.

One booth of interest was dressform making. Took her card, she is local. Another booth I bought 2 American Doll clothes patterns books (18" doll and 12" Itty Bitty Baby doll). Another booth bought white linen blank for a 12 mo - 18 mo dress for my youngest grand-daughter. Will embroider the yoke with an Easter design in pastels.

Loved looking at all of the sewing machines on display. Saw the Babylock Ellisimo which has a fabulous color LCD screen. Didn't get a demo, booth was pretty active. Laid eyes on my first Singer Featherweight. What a beauty!

Lastly, I met Kathy Harrison who designs delicate, beautiful, Christening and children's embroidery designs. What a doll she is. I took her card and website info, although I already know how to find her on the web. I would love to purchase her designs and make Christening outfits.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the expo. We walked, talked, shopped and went home non-empty handed.

Knanna, I also attended the expo and enjoyed as well. I love Haberman's booth. I keep hoping that I will be able to make it to there shop. I enjoyed the show also, although I was deeply disappointed that my favorite thread company was not in attendance. Its been 2 years since we have seen them there...That would be superior threads... jkgalligan

Another nice review! Thanks for all the details and it sounds like you will certainly go to more expos now! :)) I wish I lived near more of these shows.
