Kim Lee and I returned from the American Sewing Expo and have just about recovered! There’s so much to do in three days that it can be overwhelming. But we’ve rested and digested, and I’m ready to share some photos of the event!
Kim participated in the Passion for Fashion challenge this year, and here she is on day one–still smiling. It got WAY more hectic as the weekend went on, but here she is at her station before the challenge was presented.
Twelve designers were chosen (from over 30) to compete in this year’s challenge. The designers had to choose a classic car and base their design on the car in some way. Kim chose a 1953 Studebaker Starliner.
Kim will have much more to share on her blog post, so I’ll let her speak from her point of view (stay tuned)! She is so talented, and it was really great watching her creative genius at work.
I spent the first couple of days at the Sew Experience Cafe, doing make-and-take demos of a T-Shirt Redo project. We took a T-shirt, cut it down the center, and then bound the cut edges with bias binding.
Here are some nice ladies hard at work! (Actually, we spent more time gabbing than we did sewing, but we still got the shirts done in record time.)
Here are some great gals modeling their creations!
We had a great time and everyone loved the project.
