Participation in the sewing industry is essential to keeping it alive, thriving, interesting and accessible to everyone. For that reason, we support local consumer shows that give sewing enthusiasts the opportunity to see first hand all the interesting fabrics, patterns and sewing supplies on the market. We also host lectures, teachers, fashion shows, trunk shows and demos to make attendance at these events a learning, fun and worthwhile experience for all show attendees.
