I love it mostly. I can easily spend too much money. Patience is needed to get around the crowds. Wear comfortable shoes. Not much in the way of food for lunch and long lines for food at lunch time. Plan to take a lunch break away from the Expo site or pack a lunch. Sign up for classes/seminars well ahead of time. Enjoy!

Fantastic! But yes, pack your lunch or visit the supermarket that's just down the road. I would highly recommend not doing 8am or 8.30am classes, ditto for the late ones. We did the entire 4 days and it was very tiring so I would plan either a day off or only do a morning or afternoon one day. Days full of classes are also tiring. I also went to sleep in a few of them but I was jet lagged so that probably didn't help.

I flew from Florida to meet some sewing friends there a half dozen years ago (before the major renovations.) I loved it. Yes, the most amazing vendor halls possible but I truly appreciated the classes and the fashion shows were my absolute favorite. One of these days I will return.

I did the three days and eventhough I bought tickets before the event, I ended up doing more sessions when I had a break. Do plan to be comfortable and have patience because there's lots of people there. The organisers do a great job and will go out of their way to help you. Do as many classes as you can but time them to suit yourself. And save up for this. You'll get lots of contacts for the future.

I have gone to other sewing shows & loved every minute! Go!!! You deserve it and that area of the country is wonderful.

Happy New Year to you and all your growing family, Ann. Congrats on your new life.

Happy New Year Ann and family.
Are you thinking of going to the Sewing Expo?

Carolyn said...

I can't speak for the sewing show ;) but I love your new header!
Best wishes for a wonderful New Year Ann!

I went several years from the DC area and loved that there are vendors at Puyallup that we never see on the East Coast. I assume the soup and pie place is still across the street. It's the best place to eat. We would unload our purchases into the rental car, eat soup and pie, and return to the show for more classes and shopping. WONDERFUL show.
