Worcester, MA, April 15, 16, 17. This is only my third "expo" and I thought it was wonderful. I believe 2002 was the first year this particular expo came to Worcester and I just went for the day to shop. I didn't go last year at all, but this year, I signed up for classes. I took Cynthia Guffey's "Your Personal Best" on Wednesday's More the Day Before. This was fantastic, Cynthia is absolutely wonderful. She has her own style down to a "T"!! She is where I want to be, in that department. I took 2 of Fred Bloebaum's classes, 1 from Lyla Messinger, 1 from Barb Callahan, and another one from Cynthia Guffey. They were all great--I learned a lot, maybe too much, and can't wait to try some of the ideas presented. I don't know if anyone is familiar with Barb Callahan, her company is "Barb Originals." She designs patterns, mostly women's clothing, and works with mostly 100% linen fabrics, which she also sells. I am a linen lover also, so this was especially interesting to me. Well, I'm all fired up right now, so hopefully I'll have some pattern reviews to post soon.

Can someone please help me. I purchased a pattern at the show to make a purse from a quilted placemat and it also contained pattens for purse accessories make from quilted hot pads. I have someone lost this pattern while searching for the materials to make these items. I paid cash and don' t have the name of the company to order another one. Please email me privately at melissawag@aol.com if you can help me. Thanks in advance.

I took several C. Guffy classes, bought 8 of her videos, and plan for more. In my book, she is simply the best. I did buy a couple of Barb's Originals patterns. I too had a wonderful time at the Expo. I can't wait for next year. They even offered some good food...you just had to ransome your fabric to pay for it. ;o)
