Sewing and Stitchery Expo 2013

These winter sunsets are so fabulous here in the Puget Sound.  We love it when we get a "sun break" and just stand back in awe!  I have enjoyed a few days of this but now I am gearing up for The Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington.  Luckily it is only about 30 miles away.  My sister, Pat, is coming up from Texas on Monday.  We move in Wednesday and the show starts Thursday, February 28th  and runs through Sunday.  It is long hours and lots of work but we love seeing the customers year after year and somehow that makes it all worthwhile. Being one of only 2 or 3 vendors with antique and vintage sewing items and buttons, we do pretty well.  I promise to take lots of pictures and post them in a week or so.  Or, maybe you can make it!

February brings two shows my way.  This weekend Bill and I will be doing the Ocean Shores Antique Show in Ocean Shores, Washington.  I take lots of sewing collectibles (and some you can use too) and buttons.  We also bring fantastic antiques and Bill's antique carpentry tools.  He has collected them for a long time.

February 28th through March 3rd is the humongous Sewing and Stitchery Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington.  It's really huge and this is it's 29th year.  I think this is my 9th year and boy do I love it! With Bill and my sister Pat to help me, I just may pull it off again and can't wait to see all of my favorite customers as well as the new faces.   There are many, many classes, door prizes and anything you could possibly think of in the sewing arena.  The website is

Recently I put more sewing items on Etsy so swing by that corner of the internet and have a peak.  Just go to Etsy and then Stitchesintime1.
