No Smoothie Panties for me in 2013

I won’t be learning how to make “Smoothie Panties” this year at Sew Expo. Damn. Maybe I will get lucky next year. 😉

Have you ever attempted to grock the SewExpo website (or printed brochure) and plan a day+ of workshops at what is billed as the biggest sewing exposition in America? If so, I bow to you. Processing that grid of classes and descriptions requires an advanced degree in computational and mathematical engineering.

After agonizing for 3+ hours mapping out classes, fashion shows, and potty breaks over the 4-day schedule, I ended up being able to register for:

1.  The Ultimate in Under-Things
2.  Industry Insider Techniques Garment SEWING
3.  Stabilizers – The Backbone Behind the Stitching
4.  No Pins, No Basting, No Kidding!
5.  Perfecting The Pull-On Pant
6.  Thread Therapy with Dr. Bob
7.  Bag A Jacket Lining By Machine
8.  Make Your Fabric Work for You
9.  Cover Hem Workshop

Sadly, I will not be able to learn how to create Designer Finishes with your Serger, Designer Serger Techniques, and Smoothies Panties. But I do plan to have the most ultimate under-things on my block.

How about you-are you attending Sew Expo? Are you planning on taking any classes? Do share!

Happy sewing!

  1. Hi, Maris – jusr recently discovered your blog and love it! Strange to be so late to your party, as I live a few miles from you.
    I’ll be attending Sew Expo for the first time & can make it on only one day, so I’ll be attending one-hour seminars. Really looking forward to the “ruffle fabrics” class to help me with surprises for my DGD. BTW, i’m not wishing for “smoothies,” but full-out power-net knickers – LOL!
