“I thought if I could bring all my favorite aspects of successful sewing events across the country and create a go-to sewing event, this would be it,” says Mahon. “The industry is excited, customers are excited, and I am excited because we are setting the stage for a yearly destination event that will feature A-list talent and great learning opportunities every year.”
The 2015 Designer Joi’s Sewing Holiday will feature sewing, quilting and embroidery classes by popular sewing personalities, a banquet, contests and prizes, a traveling quilt exhibit, book signings, and a historic clothing presentation from Iowa State University, where Mahon earned her degree in fashion design. Sewing machines for classes are graciously provided by Baby Lock Sewing Machine Company.
Behind the scenes, Mahon has been planning all sorts of details, including special guests. Among the “sewlebrities” scheduled to attend:

Entertainment for the “sewtacular” will be provided by Emmy Award-winning a cappella act Tonic Sol-fa during the opening ceremonies and banquet on July 22, 2015.
