Starting the Countdown...

If you regularly read this blog, you understand the work and planning for Sew Expo goes on 365 days a year. But once the Registration Brochure is put together -- time starts to move at WARP SPEED.

And we are putting the FINAL TOUCHES on the 2012 brochure. I won't lie to you. It is always painful. Because one teacher might be teaching two or even three different topics -- the seminar descriptions take up MANY PAGES...

It costs a fortune to PRINT THE DARN THING -- not to mention the postage fees. So here's our cunundrum.....

We can continue to encourage the teachers to offer more classes -- and put just the "titles" in the brochure...that would take the brochure down to a manageable 16 pages and save us A LOT OF MONEY. The complete descriptions, with photos, would all be on the website...

OR -- we can continue to do what we are currently doing -- pack it ALL IN the printed brochure. But to do that -- we'll have to limit the number of classes we offer. For example, no teacher could present more than two topics...??

What do you think?

Anyway -- they ARE WORKING ON THE BROCHURE...and here's a handful of pictures I sent -- JUST IN CASE they have room for photos...(which almost never happens)...

This one is EXACTLY how I feel about Sew Expo....


A Simplicity Style Show pic...

I would like one shot of the Hey Rita totebag...so I sent several. If you want to crop the bag -- that would be fun...it is a well known character on the show blog and would add a fun element to the brochure -- don't you think?? (I have approximately 3,000 pictures of this bag -- and the two red-headed twins are presenting a special program this year....!)

happy people taking a hands-on class -- Jan Bones is a HOT TICKET...

One of my favorite audience shots!! Eleanor Burns' class...

another Hey Rita tote possibility -- here with her two birth-mothers -- Jan & Bonne -- who are also bringing A SURPRISE to the 2012 show...

this is a real "sisters" group from Alaska -- a group shot of their fabulous pink outfits!!



My best Pillowcase Patrol picture of the kids with their pillowcases




















another great pillowcase shot -- good pic of Barbara from the hospital


I CAN HARDLY WAIT for you to see the brochure!! We'll let you get over Christmas, first...
