Did anyone go to the Rocky Mountain Sewing Expo? It has been awhile for me. I think the expo leans heavily on quilting, which I don’t do a lot of. Plus, I always buy some geegaw or gidgedy gadget that I end up never using. I was looking for the booth that sold the Swedish tracing paper but didn’t find it. Talked for a long time with the Bernina Lady. Nice stuff indeed. But, I think I’m going to look into Janome or Juki. I think that Bernina makes machines and accessories with great care and thought. Some of the features that they have you know a seamstress was behind it saying “let’s put this in” not just designed strictly by engineers. But, looking at Janome I can get even more for less price. So, I’ll be test driving one of those here shortly.
I was also kind of surprised by how many vendors don’t want photos taken. What’s up with that. I was at one booth where she had fabric that was fabric you could get anywhere and she said no to my request to take photos. I understand the issue of intellectual property one of kind designs and stuff like that but just ordinary fabric? One place called the craftscraps.org was my favorite place. Just a little place with tons of old craft, sewing, knitting and crochet stuff. Neat.
