This is the 5th year I have attended the Sewing Expo in Puyallup WA. I was very disappointed that over 50% of the vendors were quilting vendors. The garment vendors that did have booths had very unimpressive ones. I surmise they rely on their name to pull in customers, but an attractive booth would certainly help.

I took a class from Louise Cutting of Cutting Line Designs and she begged us to 'come upstairs and visit' her booth. I walked by it 2x before I found it. There weren't displays of any kind on the curtains, only patterns laid on a table. Sadly, most of the other independent pattern makers were the same way, the exception being Peggy Sagers of Silhouette Designs. She had an awesome booth.

The classes were spectacular as always. Offerings included some favorites that return year after year, plus lots of new things. I believe Minky fabric was by far, the most popular fabric of the Show. Fabric Depot could not keep it stocked in their booth.

The weather was beautiful for walking from building to building. (The Show is held in 3 buildings on the Puyallup Fair Grounds.) And even though I am not a quilter, I am in awe of the artistic and physical work that goes into them. There were some beauties.

Overall the show was a winner. Just not enough stuff for an avid garment sewer like me.

I am interested in attending this expo next year because I thought it would be garment oriented. I have access to all kinds of quilting expos and really hoped to find one that was garments only. Good to hear what you found to be the case.
