Sewing and Stitchery Expo

I'm headed to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo! I had a booth there for many years, but haven't been in quite a while. This year I'll just be one of the 22,000+ attendees, but looking forward to it. If you are in the area, you might want to drop by, too. It starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday. Who knows.... maybe I'll see you there.
