This was my 1st Original Sewing Expo and I enjoyed it a great deal. I attended the expo all 3 days and took numerous sessions each day and one “hands on” fitting class with Emma Seabrooke. Emma did a great job assisting all of the students modifying the t-shirt pattern to fit us. She also provided additional information regarding how to make various necklines to the t-shirt.
A few of the highlights:
Cindy Losekamp – great session titled “Vintage Collage” with several samples and demonstrations including how to dye lace, etc.
Jim Suzio – great sessions (1) “Everything Old is New Again” (2) “Sugar Free Fundraising” – ideas on ways to use machine embroidery for fundraising instead of selling candy.
Cynthia Guffey – Core Sewing tips
Peggy Sagers – Tee Shirts & Sewing techniques
Shopping the vendor booths – in particular Vogue fabrics! Looking forward to attending again in 2010.
