Sharon, Danielle and Ciara

Thanksgiving is all about family and friends -- and that's also true of the Sewing & Stitchery EXPO. Why do we sew? So we can make gifts for our family and friends! This week I wanted to write about a family.-of-sew-ists...and then I remembered this special email. I LOVE MY JOB..

Dear Rita,

Just finding your blog but love to see you at the Expo each year!! We are a threesome that comes: myself (64), my daughter (39) and grand-daughter (who will be 18 on Feb. 26th). I take them both to Expo as their Birthday gifts!! Will come back and read your blog often.
Sharon Bosser
Danielle Dahm
Ciara Dahm

Of course, I asked her to send a picture -- cuz -- WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING A BLOG?? if you can't share some pictures!!

Thanks for playing my blogging game, Sharon. You are the first sewing TRIO-generation that I've heard about. Anybody else out there? I'll SEE YOU AT THE SHOW. And -- are the three of you planning your projects for our jeans-challenge-day?

Have a nice Thanksgiving, everybody!! I'll be right here next week at this time....probably just coming out of my turkey coma...

Londa video

Oh, yes -- ANOTHER VIDEO.!! Last week I got an email and one of my friends said, "oh, Rita -- you're just showing off now!".

But I think it's sooo much fun to put up a video interview -- and let the speakers tell you in their own words, with their own voice, what they're bringing to the show.

So this is the interview I did with Londa Rohlfing at Quilt Market in Houston, Texas. She didn't come to Expo last year -- but is looking forward to 2010. Take a look and sew what's new with Londa..!

Schmetz VIDEOS!!

Okay -- this is so much fun. As you know, I interviewed many Expo speakers when I was in Houston, working in the Schmetz booth. Those GREAT VIDEOS are posted on the Schmetz blog....go to:schmetzneedles.blogspot.com. If I'm doing it right -- that blog is also linked on this blog (if you look in the right hand column). Remember, folks -- I'm still learning...

Here's a picture of Rhonda Pierce talking about sewing machine needle education:

When you go to the Schmetz blog -- you'll be able to see and hear other people's sewing stores. The "Triple S Project" -- SCHMETZ SEWING STORIES -- is all about YOU. You can see and hear Luveta Nickels, Janet Pray, Linda McGehee, Kaye Wood and many other interesting sew-ers. I told my own sewing story, so did my sister Ronda and my friend Phyllis. You should share your OWN sewing story. C'mon -- play our blogging game!! IT'S FUN!!

This is a picture of Ronda and Phyllis actually sewing in a "round robin"...

YES, I KNOW -- this is just sooo much fun! Be sure to check out the Schmetz blog -- then go to my blog Rita's Sew Fun blog -- tomorrow I'm posting my interview with Nancy Zieman -- and you'll get a sneak peak of her new fabric line...
