The yearly Sewing & Quilt Expo was once again held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel. Whenever possible my mom, sister, and I try to go together. It’s the one time a year that the three of us get along the best– –crafting and sewing together. This year my niece was finally old enough to join us. 3 generations sewing together. It was wonderful!
We took two hands-on classes. Friday night was hand-dyed scarves and Saturday morning we made bags.
My niece also entered the Sewing’s Next Generation Youth Show. We got the idea for her outfit from Ashley’s Make It & Love It blog. Unfortunately she did not win. However it was her first time sewing so we have high hopes for next year. = )
Besides the two classes we did two Make ‘n Take It crafts at vendor booths:
It was a wonderful time and I took an absolute ton of photos! There were so many beautiful fabrics, notions, machines, quilts, etc. Below are a few highlights.
