I mentioned a little over a month ago that I was going to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington. Back then the Sew Expo felt so far away. It’s hard for me to believe the Expo week is already here and that March is already here, but it’s true! (A friend once told me that when you have a newborn, the days are long but the weeks are short.)
I’m really excited to see what this conference is all about. My excitement has to be tempered because I’ll only be there one day – Sunday – since I already feel a bit like a negligent parent bringing a one-month-old baby to a crowded sewing conference. Baby girl likes to be held, so my current plan is to wear her all day. I hope being snuggled up next to me will keep her relatively happy while also limiting her contact with anyone who might be sick.
In the hopes that baby girl doesn’t mind being out all day, I’ve planned a full day of classes and hope to be there until the bitter end. If you’ll also be at the Sew Expo on Sunday, let me know. I’ve already heard from a few of you, and I’m excited we might finally meet! Leah of Away I Sew! mentioned meeting at the American Sewing Guild booth, which I think is a great idea. Unfortunately, I scheduled so many classes that I only have 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there until the end of the day. I’m not opposed to skipping out on a class if there’s a time that works best for many of you. Perhaps you could let me know in the comments? Otherwise, as long as baby girl isn’t screaming at me to get her home, I’ll plan to stop by the ASG booth after my last class ends, just after 3:15 pm. Maybe I’ll see you then?!
