The 2013 Sewing & Stitchery Expo is just a few short weeks away, February 28–March 3. It’s held each year at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington (near Seattle). It’s an annual meet up for those of us who love all things sewing.
Here’s what I’ll be doing at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo.
Friday Night Live, featuring Lucy & Ethel, wait Nancy and Mary!
Back for another round of sewing, cooking, and a whole lot of silly, I hope you can join Mary Mulari and me for the Friday Night event, Kick it Up a Stitch—Second Helping.
We’ve changed our ways and banished any thought of laborious sewing or cooking techniques, we’ve gone LITE! Quick serging and speedy embellishing will “kick up” our sewing projects. An apron, scarf, tote, plus more will be the feature of our SEW LITE techniques. Plus, Mary and I promise to match-up our sewing projects with healthy eating options.
This year, at Friday Night LIVE—with our focus on fast and easy—Baby Lock is giving away a top-of-the-line EVOLUTION serger! “For the love of sewing“—Baby Lock will actually be giving away FIVE sewing machine door prizes on this fun-filled night!
Sew Knits with Confidence Seminars
Thursday through Saturday I’ll be presenting my newest seminar, Sew Knits with Confidence . With the resurgence of knit fabrics and patterns at fabric and even quilting shops, I’m more than delighted to pass along my favorite knit sewing tips. If it’s been awhile since you’ve sewn with knits, let me refresh your memory!
Nancy’s 30 Favorite Sewing & Quilting Techniques
Get ready for a jam-packed 1-1/2 hour seminar on Thursday afternoon, March 1, where I’ll present 30, yes 30 techniques. In honor of my 30th anniversary on TV, I gathered the same number of sewing, quilting, and/or embroidery tips that can save you time and improve your skills.

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,
