Novi Sewing Expo

Last weekend was the American Stitches Sewing Expo in Novi, MI and a few of the members of the Loose Threads Quilt Guild took a field trip! The Michigan weather was spectacular, so of course a tailgate was in order:

What you can't see in this photo are all the shopping bags.....with goodies purchased from the vendors at the Expo. I returned to the Expo alone on Saturday to take two classes with Kenneth D. King on tailoring tips and tricks. We learned about faced flap pockets, welt pockets and bound buttonholes, piping and sleeves/sleeve caps. The classes were very informative, he is an engaging instructor who was very willing to share his vast tailoring knowledge. I met up with a friend in the evening for the Passion for Fashion fashion show, a runway show with contestants who participated in a Project Runway-like competition that spanned the weekend. It was a fun weekend, and I did my part to help the struggling economy, making purchases at Vogue Fabrics, Haberman Fabrics and Fabric Gallery just to name a few! Now if I could just have a 36 hour day, and the energy to go with it!
