Sewing Expo-Puyallup, Wa

Who is planning on coming this year?
Who's coming the farthest? Last year, I chatted with sewists from Alaska, Hawaii, California, and Montana.
-------------------
edit..I believe that it starts officially on the 28th, even though the brochure lists the 27th in a spot!

I am extremely fortunate to live 10 minutes from expo and get more excited about it than Christmas-who needs presents when you have expo? My birthday is this month and my husband always asks what to get me and I always say expo is enough!

Wow Rubyla..that is a trip!! Do you come with friends??

PinkHouseLady...that sounds like so much fun!! Do you go and do other sightseeing also?

Sharon..what direction do you live? It used to take me about an hour to 1.5 hours also..on the bus..and now that they have changed the train service, it's 20 minutes in a very comfortable train! It's about an 8 block walk at the end or another bus to the Fairgrounds, but since I live about 2 blocks from the train station, it's really the most convient way to go...and I always meet others going the same place!

WanttoSewMore...what a neat birthday gift! Do you go all days?

Unfortunately, I won't be going to Puyallup. But a pants outfit I designed and sewed for Independent Pattern Company Alliance's Ticket to Paradise Sewing Contest has been selected for the Semifinals and willl be displayed at the Expo.

Please stop by the Dana Marie Design Co. booth from Thursday, February 28th through Sunday morning, March 3rd and cast your vote. Then stop by the other six booths of the other IPCA member pattern companies, and you'll be eligible for a valuable prize.

The sewing contest winners will be announced on Sunday, March 3rd at 1:30 pm on the Expo Runway in the Second Floor Pavillion. I hope you all have a wonderful time.

I am coming with my husband. Afterwards, we are going to Portland to visit friends. I had heard of this expo for years and finally, decided to come. The classes are great.
