Here they are with their sewing mentor, Linda MacGehee -- AND their two very capable assistants..(Princess AND???)
The HEY RITA tote (designed and sewn by Jan Potter HERSELF) -- is relaxing, watching her birthmother do her show...
THEN -- suddenly -- she realized she had two SISTER-TOTES nearby!!!
For me, Jan and Bonne are what Sew Expo is all about. Two friends who come to the show every year because they SHARE A LOVE OF SEWING. They both have busy lives with lots of people to take care of -- work, family, drama, tornados -- we all have to deal with that stuff. But isn't it great to look forward to four days at Expo -- when it can simply be ALL ABOUT THE SEWING??
THANKS FOR VISITING THE BLOG...I post something new every single week -- usually on Tuesdays. Next week I'm putting up some great new audience pictures...
Right this minute, I'm on my way back to Puyallup for the 2011 PLANNING MEETING. Here's one of my favorite pictures from last year's show....me with Jan, Linda and Bonne.
Jan and Bonne are the sole reason that I write on my BLOG every single day... If you think you can stand a daily dose of me -- be sure to check out my personal blog:
Rita's Sew Fun
Over there -- I write about ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING...yesterday it was all about my favorite food. And it's often about my favorite baby. For the next few weeks, I will be obsessing about my recent trips to New York City AND Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. My goal is to blog EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR A YEAR...and I started July 30, 2009.
I should make a shirt that says, "Help me. I'm blogging and I can't shut up..."
