REMEMBER -- From the ticket office:
If you have received your envelope with tickets, please open it and check your tickets. If there is a problem it can perhaps be taken care of before the Expo. Also if you have never received your tickets, please let us know immediately. Our e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOW WE CAN BEGIN THE TEN DAY COUNTDOWN...
So -- here's a big question -- what's the weather going to be like? Last year, Wednesday (set-up day) was cold and rainy. You SHOULD bring a rain coat, of course.
Here's an email I received yesterday:
Hey, Rita!! Can't wait for the Expo in Puyallup. I live 30 minutes away so I never miss a day.
We were just at a major antique show last weekend, held at the same venue as the Expo. They did not have the rule about carts and suitcases. Soooooooo dangerous for those of us walking behind them.
Would you write again (and again) about this dangerous habit. There are always a few at Expo who ignore the rule on 'drag-abouts' as I call them. Please remind people about checking their bags and purchases. I even noticed a few last year that were using strollers. No babies, just out-smarting the rules. Still dangerous, not to mention annoying.
I have never used the check service because I have my car parked across the street, but I've always wondered if there is a fee and/or should we tip the personnel. Is it run by volunteers or the fairground staff? I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering.........
Thanks for all you do to get the word out about the Expo. I look forward to it every year. I just hope we can give you visitors some decent weather.

When I received this email, I realized I DID NOT KNOW THE ANSWER...about the bag checking. So I will post the answer by the end of today.
AND the most important thing you should know right now is that the ticket office will be closing ON WEDNESDAY.
But do not worry -- TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE SHOW. The ticket office is located in the Showplex. Over by the Mary Bridge PILLOWCASE PATROL booth.
They set up a board -- with ALL THE AVAILABLE CLASSES...
I have been walking ONE MILE EVERY DAY on my treadmill...today I'm going to do TWO MILES...trying to get into shape for ALL THAT WALKING...at the BIGGEST, BEST SEWING PARTY IN AMERICA..!!
