My visit to the Original Sewing & Quilting Expo AND The Best T-Shirt Recon EVER!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Orginal Sewing & Quilting Expo in Worcester, Massachusetts. I must say that I can not thank Joe’s mom enough for bringing me. I am so happy that I got to spend the day with her, chatting & learning all sorts of new things!

I was amazed at the amount of talent displayed at the Expo. The quilts were amazing, and made me even more intimitated to dive into quilting (or even dabble for that matter).
We went to a stage presentation called Sweatshirt Projects: Jackets and More
with Connie Spurlock of Sew Wonderful Dreams. This presentation inspired me and I am (eventually) going to try to make a sweatshirt jacket. Two awesome things about a sweatshirt jacket: All raw edges & you’d never even know it was a sweatshirt!

I even got a free sweatshirt for signing up to be a Bone Marrow Donor at the show!

We also took a class called Fit To Be Tied with Jo Lee Tarbell of My Cozy Cottage. Instead of giving us a tie & a quilt block pattern like she usually does, she gave us a copy of her new book, also called Fit To Be Tied. It was really neat seeing all of the things you can do with ties!

I also got to briefly talk to Jennifer Stern, who is also a contributor to Craft Stylish, which is where I saw the best T-Shirt Recon EVER!
Who knew crocheting into fabric could be so easy.
