We are headed back to Schaumburg, IL for the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo!


This year we have planned some extra special sewing fun including our Sewing Mad Libs Relay where each stitcher on the “create” team will be paired with a sewing mentor from Sew News or BurdaStyle, and have 30 minutes to work on a project using specific criteria.

The fun? Everything will be presented Mad Libs style. Throughout the day, a Mad Lib paragraph will be filled in with words provided by the audience (maybe you!), taking the project in different directions until completion. Whether you stitch or watch, shenanigans are sure to take place!

This is going to be a really fun event and we need you to participate. So if you will be in the Chicago area Sept 28 – 30th and want to join in register here to reserve your spot, it’s free.

Each ‘create team’ participant will receive a gift of sewing goodies valued at more than $500!

I’m excited to head back to the expo and also mentor my “create” team. See you in Schaumburg!
