“It’s Sew Fine: for Home and Family” Sewing Expo will be held April 12-13 at General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton.
The 2011 Sewing Expo schedule includes registration starting at 10 a.m. April 12 followed by “Make-it and Take-it” session of a patchwork name tag until noon.
On the opening afternoon, participants take a half-day class offering a variety of options including: “Old Blocks ... New Tricks,” “Working With Wool-Embroidery Envelope,” “Mastering Miters,” “Texture Magic,” and more.
The first evening ends with a banquet and a keynote presentation by Pam Damour who calls herself a “Recovering Quilter.”
An interior designer by profession, a scrap-fabric quilter by passion, she’s piled up her own small mountain of UFOs (unfinished projects). Damour will share with participants projects from her new book on how to use up your unfinished quilts in unique and creative ways.
At the conclusion of the evening banquet, there will be an instructor showcase. At this time, expo instructors will show and sell their wares and provide educational demonstrations.
April 13 will be a full day featuring many classes including “Fat Quarter Fun,” “Whimsy Butterflies,” “Bodacious Feather Star,” “Serger Basics,” “Othello Jacket,” and more.
The Sewing Expo concludes at 5 p.m. April 13.
