The Sewing Expo

Last week my dear daughter and I went to a sewing expo. This is a very well known event and people come from quite far away. Here was the problem for us. As for me, there were very little if any, needlework supplies. I'm not that much of a seamstress! I do sew for my home, pillows , bed skirts , etc. but that is about it and only when necessary. Laurie is a wool-felting artist. She was looking for things she could use in her designs and really didn't find anything. There were several great trim booths but you had to know exactly what you wanted. The event was a quilters paradise! It was extremely crowded!!!! We did have a nice day together so that was worth the trip. We decided that we will probably skip it next year.

Now in Washington, any event that is held at the Fairgrounds sells these yummy scones! We resisted!

Here are a few of my purchases. I never tried this but thought I might like to use this for trim. It can be dyed.

Looks easy!! We'll see!!!

Vintage ribbon in a color I love.

This was my favorite booth. They had tons of these great ceramic buttons. There were some for Halloween that were wonderful. I loved the spider ones. I have some ceramic Halloween buttons that I haven't used so I decided to wait on those. I can use these for my summer decorating. I have her card so I can order more.
Thanks for taking a look and have a great week!


  1. What a wonderful day for you and your daughter. I can't wait to see what you do with the chenille stuff.
    I wouldn't have been able to resist the scones :)

  2. Looks like you found some cute things and the best part, I'm sure, was spending the day with your daughter!

  3. Boy you sure know how to bring back the memories of the fairgrounds. I remember standing in long lines for one of those scones and the wonderful smell of onions and hamburgers.
