Email from an Expo Fan

Hi Rita,

I THINK I received a newsletter from sew expo regarding all the suggestions and "complaints".

I just wanted to let you know how much sewing expo means to me -

a chance to hang out with creative people who enjoy what they are doing,
a chance to attend wonderful seminars,
a chance to meet the teachers I have admired from afar - TV, Magazines, Books,
a chance to bounce my own ideas with experts,
a chance to meet new friends,
a chance to bond with my daughter, granddaughter, and yes, husband. He comes to one day with me every year,
a chance to meet people from previous expos - almost always at the same booths so that we can compare notes,
a chance to boost my moral in the middle of the rainy season in Seattle.

I admire all the organizers of the shows. The people, the setups, the parking, etc. I cannot understand the petty - the sewing expo is a home show for sewing and crafting. It is wonderful.

THANKS, Barbara, for taking the time to write! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR...!!

  1. All the right reasons for the sewing expo! We all have our personal bucket list of things we would do differently if we ran the show. But when we remember WHY we are there in the first place, it makes it all worth the while.
