Sewing Weekend Starts Tomorrow!

Not a very big secret around my part of the world... you see, I live in Wisconsin and it's home to the sewing capital of the world, Beaver Dam, home to Nancy's Notions retail store and catalog business.

We were discussing this one time in our sewing guild after-meeting lunch, how long have we been going up there?  I don't know but I have commemorative pins that go back as far as 1997.  I'm sure I went a couple of years before they started giving out pins too.

It's the best show I've ever attended in Wisconsin or many other states.  It's well organized, the people are helpful beyond imagining, there's too much to do and too little time to do it in, and I haven't missed one since I started going.  I'd have to be hospitalized to miss it.

I haven't decided what kind of things I'm looking for this year except that they have a really good price on rotary cutter replacement blades.  I'm always looking for bargain fabrics for the church's quilt group, and of course I'll have to check out the doll shoes and accessories for Miss A and Miss K.

I'm ready for a long weekend immersed in the sewing world!

Sew on...
