The 20th American Sewing Expo is going on this weekend at the Suburban Showcase Collection in Novi, Michigan. There is still one more day to participate in all the fun. Sunday show hours are from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
See the finished garments from the Passion for Fashion Contest, this year the contestants were inspired by musical artists from Elvis to Lady Gaga. All twelve garments will be on display in the Baby Lock Sewing Arena. Visitors to the Arena will have the opportunity to fill out a ballot for a People's Choice award.
Twenty-eight vendors have a Make and Take in their booth. Its a great way to try sewing on a new fabric or learn a new technique. Spend some time at the Juki Sew Party Cafe or Janome's Artistic Studio to make, design and embellish. Visit the Craftsy Quick Stitch Challenge booth and maybe have the chance to participate and win a prize too.
Do not forget the Dream Sewing Room Contest. All paid admission holders 18 and older will be given 10 entry tickets. Simply fill them out and deposit them into the 10 Dream Sewing Room boxes located on the expo floor. Stick around until the drawing at 5:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded from each box, plus one lucky Grand Prize winner will take home a new Bernette Chicago Sewing and Embroidery machine, a Bernina 1150 MDA overlock and a Horn Cabinet provided by Gail Sewing Centers.
This is your last chance to visit this show. Procrastinators will have to wait a whole year!
