I flew from Little Rock, AR to Atlanta for my first expo and I was very favorably impressed. But don't really have anyting to compare it with. I took several classes from Karen Erickson on slipcovering and Peggy Sagers on garments construction. Spent too much money, but came back so thrilled that quilting and embrodiery are not the only things going on in the sewing world. I love making garments and slipcovers and was so happy to see other not only doing it but also succeeding. Just being with other people who love to sew was wonderful and inspiring for me. In Little Rock, our fabric stores are very limited and have as many if not more gift and craft items as they do sewing. When I sewed years ago fabric stores seemed to cover acres of bolt after bolt of wonderful fabric. Many remnant stores too. This expo showed me that sewing is alive and well. It's just that Little Rock is so limited. Watching the new sewing machines and sergers demonstrated was awesome (I don't use that work lightly) and inspired me to buy a new Pfaff when I got home. I hope to be able to go again next year.

Jean, You will love your new sewing machine and that was a good move on your part. The new mechines are so much more comfortable and capable than many of the older ones (a few classics excepted) and the sm companies have begun to understand that they have to cover a huge sewing territory and just one machine is not right for everything or everybody. Look at the Pfaff Hobby Grand Quilter and the Viking MegaQuilter or even the Janome 6500Pro -who would have thought 10 years ago that you could sell a quilt-dedicated machine or a semi-industrial to the home market? You will love sewing on the new Pfaff and will certainly go much farther than on your old machine. Thanks for the review.
