The 2012 Sewing & Stitchery Expo (or "Sew Expo") is coming to the Puyallup Fairgrounds March 1st through 4th 2012. If you're not familiar with Sew Expo, it's a massive annual event with over 400 vendor booths, in-depth workshops, hands-on seminars, daily free stage shows and more!
The Sewing & Stitchery Expo has just released on their website their entire Seminar Brochure that you can download and read or print off. Online Registration is set to open January 5th on their website, so it's a good idea to take a look at the brochure beforehand so you can figure out all of the great seminars you'll want to take.
In addition to vendor booths and seminars, there are also many amazing special events:
• Friday Night Live, sponsored by Baby Lock, features Martha Pullen's "Party in Puyallup," and it's a show you won’t want to miss.
• The Saturday night headliner Alex Anderson (host of HGTV’s “Simply Quilts”), sponsored by Bernina, will be fun and entertaining.
• Sunday, the charity event will include the “Coats and Clarks Sewing & Stitchery Exhibition” with proceeds going to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. If you have made pillowcases for the children, bring them to this event.
Thursday through Saturday beginning at 9:30 AM there will be free style shows upstairs in the Pavilion all day long with professional models. It is all about garment sewing and you have the chance to sit down and be entertained at the same time. So be sure you check your schedule and work in the style shows!
There are also generous daily door prizes. This is the only show in the country where about $35,000 in door prizes are given away each year!
And of course be sure to stop by our Quality Sewing & Vacuum booth! We'll have more information on the Sew Expo and our role there soon. Be sure to check this blog and the Sew Expo Website to keep up-to-date with any developments. This event is not to be missed and it only happens once a year!
