Scenes from the Sewing and Stitchery Expo
It was a whirlwind trip! I'm still recovering from the red-eye flight I took home, but I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the Sewing and Stitchery Expo. I will be back with a more detailed post on my experience and thoughts; this is just a teaser!
One of the first things you see is the giant bull head, pictured above. (That's a bull, right? I'm not up to date on my farmyard animals.)
Inside, the vendors, runway, and classrooms! Here's the Palmer/Pletsch book display.
I attended several fashion shows. I met these gentlemen after the Simplicity show. They come together every year and always make coordinating outfits from flamingo-print fabric. They're pretty popular, as you might imagine.
Coats and Clark, who are celebrating their 200th anniversary! Here's Lynn Browne and Michele DeFay displaying commemorative tins they gave out. The tins are adorable and have vintage thread ad artwork on them.
Another highlight: the scone truck. These scones are made with pure magic; that's the only explanation.
We passed a carwash with a rotating pink elephant sign. Of course I had to take a picture!
