On Friday, Pencil Girl and I went to the NW Quilt Show at the Expo. We talked about taking the bus in and riding the yellow Max but time constraints made us drive in. Parking at the Expo is eight bucks now! I was so shocked.
I expected this show to be more quilt related - which it is, but it had more to offer... We ended up spending a good five hours there - getting creatively charged up. And, getting a lot of catching up done.
Pencil Girl's necklace that she bought last year.
One vendor was selling these t-shirts. With the extra fabric on the front, they were oddly 'stiff'.
But you can see where they added a panel of fabric on top, sewed parallel lines at a diagonal angle and then took scissors to snip in-between the stitching lines.
This t-shirt on a sales person was from Anthropology. It's done with elastic thread. Kinda random and I think -done before the t-shirt is constructed. Elastic thread goes in the bobbin.
I've been once to the Sister's Quilt Show.
This sponsoring fabric store is always worth going to. They have the cutest greeting cards which open up for a small project.
And - I bought my serger at this booth.
Yes - after forty years of sewing and making do, I now can play on my very own serger.
