Sew Much Fun!

Mom, Susan and I had the opportunity to attend the fabulous Sew Expo in Puyallup last week. We literally walked until we dropped, and only made it through one building! There were some amazing vendors this year. We spent the first two hours (!) at Treasures of the Gypsy's booth, fondling scores of her hundreds of silk fabrics and trims. That booth alone was well worth the trip. Her display featured handmade shrine, gypsy and mermaid dolls and fabric fairy houses; some of her offerings included hand-dyed silk devore velvets, embroidered and beaded trims, embroidered and crinkled silks…. it was mind-boggling. Other vendors brought hand-dyed Venise lace, hard-to-find fabrics and trimmings, and mixed media supplies such as hand-dyed silk cocoons, rods and hankies and hand-dyed wool roving. Now that we have the feeling back in our legs and feet, we’re already looking forward to attending again next year!
