Sewing and Stitchery Expo February 27-March 2, 2014The 2014 Sewing & Stitchery Expo is just two weeks away, February 27–March 2.  It’s held each year at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington (near Seattle).

Seams Unlikely Seminars and Book Signings

You’ve watched Nancy on TV and read her books. None of them, though, told the story of her life growing up in Wisconsin. Millions have wondered about the details of her battle with Bell’s palsy, how her love of sewing began, and her unlikely TV journey. Now, Nancy has written her autobiography Seams Unlikely. Join Nancy for this once-in-a-lifetime launch of her new autobiography.

I’m looking forward to my visit and classes this year at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo. For me it’s like homecoming week in the spring. I enjoy seeing sewing friends at the largest sewing show in the country. Plus, it’s like traveling into the future as spring has sprung in Puyallup (and it’s still winter in Wisconsin).

Bye for now,
