This was my third year attending the Sewing Expo in KC.

Shopping at the expo is one of my favorite parts. This year I purchased lots of fat quarters to add to my stash.....several Silhouette Patterns, several yards of fabric from Emma Seabrooke and Vogue Fabrics. I also picked up several notions and other goodies.

The only general session I attended this year was "Notion Commotion" with Kim Montagnese. She had notions from most of the vendors for show and tell. Kim is a great presenter!

I attended more hands on sessions this year:

Rainy Day Tote - Deb Bohn - In this session we created a simple tote bag with rain coat fabric (aka oil cloth). This session provided everything needed to create the tote bag and plenty of time to complete it. The one recommendation I would have for this session would be to provide written materials on how to complete the project on your own....no handouts were provided.

Pieced & Quilted on the Serger - Kathy Stachowicz and Cathy Gandy - In this sesison we used Baby Lock sergers to piece a small quilt top. Although we didn't get the quilt put together in the time allowed for the session, we were provided the remaining materials needed to complete it on our own.

Serger Pillow - Kathy Stachowicz and Cathy Gandy - In this session we used Baby Lock Sergers & Sashiko machines to make a very nice large pillow cover. There were several techniques covered in this session and the materials provided were good quality.

Don't Get in a Bind - Connie Spurlock - This was a BYOM session where we learned several methods of binding and made samples. We were provided documentation on each type of binding for future reference....another great session.

I look forward to the 2012 Sewing Expo!
