Sew News at the Rocky Mountain Sewing Expo

Last week, the Sew News team paid a visit to the Rocky Mountain Sewing Expo in Denver.  It’s always a great opportunity to gather inspiration and connect with fellow sewing enthusiasts. Kari and I spent Friday taking classes, checking out new products and notions and seeing the latest techniques, ideas and patterns. Here we are, walking the show floor between classes:

Despite the very snowy, chilly weather we’ve been having here in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain sewists showed up in droves. Here are some pictures from around the show:

Searching for an invisible zipper in the perfect color is hard work!

All in all, it was a really fun day. I especially enjoyed Lorraine Henry’s class on taking body measurements, as well as a class about sewing room organization. Most importantly, we got some great ideas for upcoming Sew News features. Stay tuned!

    I went to the expo on Saturday. There was a lot to look at. There were lots of good classes offered this time but my schedule did not allow me to take any this year. I did get a couple of patterns to try.
