American Sewing Expo, 4-H, and Fall Classes

This past fall I was able to catch up with friends from all over the US, even a few from London, ON. One very familiar face was Lori at the ASE who forgot her machine's cord. With SEW many friends I was able to secure a temporary replacement for the day. She surprised me on the last day with a beautiful tea mug filled with wonderful hot tea! I did not get the opportunity to thank you, Lori, SEW a huge hug and a big THANK YOU! You are a GEM!
Saturday evening was the Fashion for Passion Runway Show. Their mentor was none other than the ‘Queen Mum’, Becky, a wonderful friend! Becky did a fabulous job offering each contestant encouragement and guidance throughout the two days they were given to create their look.
Saturday afternoon the Innovation Generation contest featured 11 young participants who each modeled outfits they made during the past year. They were fabulous - I would not want to be a judge! The beautiful young lady who won 1st prize and the Grand Prize was 15-year-old Erin, who made a black wool coat (fabric from and a black wool jumper (fabric from, each trimmed in raspberry suede. She did a superb job and deserved it! Congratulations, Erin!
Erin is one of my 4-H sewing students, a meticulous seamstress and very fashionable young lady. I am SEW proud of her and all of my young 4-H students! Each of my young 4-H sewing participants took numerous awards at the local county 4-H fair this past August in sewing and several other categories. They are a joy to work with and I always look forward to sewing with the kids.
