Inspiration from Sew Expo!

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I wanted to share some photos from my trip to the Sew Expo In Puyallup, Washington. I was hosted by the Pacific Fabrics and Crafts booth, which has six locations as well as an online store. I presented two sell-out lectures Sew Vintage and Craft a Business:Sewing for Profit. Cheryl joined me to help out, and we had a great time working the booth with the Pacific Fabrics team!! I found some vintage treasures at the show I want to share with you. I also met some new friends whose businesses I want to share as well. Carol Saber of Japanese Textiles & Tours shares her jacket featuring vintage kimono fabric. Dyan Emery of Jennifer Osner Textiles share wonderful treasures including the gorgeous fuchsia and black crazy quilt I bought! Love the idea to take the vintage photo frame and use blackboard paint to turn in into a sign!!

Vintage Green!

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

I traveled to the Sew Expo in Puyallup, Washington and found this great collection of notions. The collection of ribbons and stamps was created by Sue Gower of Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods. Sue designed a bracelet that is in our Buttonware Book.
