|This one was in Monroeville, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Generally, everything old is not new again. I have been to some great expo's, with great classes, nationally recognized artists and vendors. This was a disappointment. I arrived about one hour after opening on the first day. There was a milling crowd but no energy, no excitement. The vendors were cranky and some just ignored you. I don't know if there was a meeting where everyone vented or complained or if everyone, I mean everyone, was just tired but it generated no positive feelings. I did find a quilt shop vendor who specialized in wools who was wonderful. I bought patterns (5) at Louise Cutting's booth and when I got home I noticed that I had a duplicate of a blouse but the skirt pattern I chose was missing. Since there were things piled up near the check out I am assuming there was a mix up and someone else has my skirt pattern. Live and learn, $18.00 down the drain there. I purchased a pattern at another booth where the sales person make a computer error and charged my card multiple times. Time will tell if it was resolved as promised. None of the classes appealed to me and I just can't take another sweatshirt make-over class. There were stunning quilts displayed, gallery style but the drapes were black and the lighting poor, so the viewing was sub-par. I will likely not attend another one.
