Original Sewing & Quilt Expo to start on Nov 11

Sep '10
After 15 years of steady innovation and growth, Original Sewing & Quilt Expo has become known as the place to go for everything related to sewing, quilting, machine and hand embroidery, fiber and needle arts. The Expo, a public event attended by thousands of treasure and inspiration-seekers, returns to Kansas City, Missouri (Oct. 21-23) and Minneapolis, Minnesota (Nov 11-13) this autumn, with more for enthusiasts than ever before.

Yes indeed sewing is alive and well, and for annual visitors to Original Sewing & Quilt Expo there's much to do and see that's new.

For instance, the "For Rookies" workshop series, shares the essential basics of quiltmaking, home decor sewing, surface design, sewing for kids and more, while advanced technique classes keep experienced enthusiasts moving ahead creatively and technically. If attendance is any indicator, more people than ever before are sewing and quilting – everyone from shy dabblers to bona fide experts is out there, seeking more satisfaction and creative fulfillment at the Expo.

In the Exhibit Hall, attendees try the latest products and learn about the projects they inspire as they hunt for their next projects' treasures in retail booths throughout the Expo. In just three days, they'll stock up for a year's worth of stitching pleasure.

All in all, there's something at the Expo for everyone, with nearly 200 classes and workshops, designers, suppliers and retailers from across the country sharing the latest tools, supplies, equipment and techniques, runway fashion shows, how-to demos and great displays in the Expo Galleries.

Trends are clear: class registrations at Original Sewing & Quilt Expo events taking place earlier this year show enthusiasts are seeking expertise in several key areas, including pattern design and fitting, machine quilting and a bevy of new, non-machine embellishment techniques like silk screening, beading and dye discharge.

The return to classic fitting classes, along with the sales figures at the events for fabrics and patterns from new, independent designers tells the story: sales are on the rise as compared to the previous 24 months. Fashion sewing is not only alive and well, it is thriving! The shortage of high-quality fashion fabric shops across the country has increased the importance of attending the Expo, making it an annual tradition.
