I have just returned from five days in Puyallup, WA where I attended the four day Sewing and Stitchery Expo. The show, open to the public, was a full four days of fabric, sewing machines, threads, quilts, bags, and scissors! I was demonstrating a few new Fiskars products (the Rotary Cutter and Ruler Combo and the Amplify fabric shears) in the Hancock Fabrics booth.
I had never been to Washington before, so it was a real treat for me to experience such a beautiful state. Can’t say I saw the scenery every day, since the weather became increasingly misty and wet as the week on, but on the first day or two I definitely caught breathtaking glimpses of imposingly beautiful Mount Rainier.
The show itself was packed full of enthusiastic seamstresses: beginners, professionals, teachers and other enthusiasts. I felt right at home.
