Back from Washington & off to Atlanta!


                   I haven't even been back from the Sewing & Stitching Expo in Washington a whole week and we (Janice & I) are leaving for Atlanta first thing in the morning to exhibit at The Original Sewing & Quilting Expo! It really is incredible that we were able to pack up for another show in such a short time. Lots of "Gold Stars" to all of my helpers: Janice, Kaylene & Linda!!! Especially since we SOLD OUT of soooo many kits and patterns in Washington. That was a very successful show for us! I taught just one seminar for the Expo, "Sewing for Children: The Hottest New Patterns" which was offered on two days. Both of my seminars were sold out way in advance ~ with 100 people in each! Yeah, wow is right. I was so honored and thrilled to be able to share with so many. 

                       Below you can see some photos of the Expo buildings where the show takes place and, of course, I had to include a picture of the famous Scone Wagon! The day we were leaving I finally got a picture of Mt. Rainer! Maybe not the best, but at least I got one!




Thank you to all of our new friends in the beautiful Northwest!

                 Tomorrow we are off to Atlanta, Georgia! We will probably only drive about 6-7 hours and then another 6 hours on Tuesday. Wednesday is "set-up" day. The show opens on Thursday and runs through Saturday. Then, we'll head back home to Texas on Sunday. I will take lots of pictures and send news from our "road trip" as well as from the convention floor! So, stay tuned!



  1. Bless your heart! You're going to be exhausted by the time you get back. You'll need a retreat! Let me know how I can help you get ready, unpack, etc.! See you soon!

  2. Yep you're right! We have just finished the Atlanta show and are heading back home tomorrow:) !!!
    See you soon!
