Just a quick one to alert you to the fact that the EDMONTON SEWING SHOW is being held again next week Friday 6th & Sat 7th September at Millenium Place in Sherwood Park.  The show is open Fri 9am – 6pm and Sat 9am – 5pm. Check out the website for more details.

I will be at the show so I hope you will come & visit me at the JANOME BOOTH  hosted by JOHNSON’S SEWING Center   or the ELNA booth hosted by CENTRAL SEWING.

I will also be offering a stage show & a class each day – please check the show program for times & topics.


If you have been making bags for our BLOG Bag challenge, you are very welcome to come drop them off with me at the show. I will be most happy to take them from you. PLEASE BE SURE YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING A PIC OF EACH OF YOUR BAGS ONLINE before you hand them over to me. Unfortunately, I am not going to have time to take & post these pics for you. I have written detailed instructions of how to do this in a blog post published last week on 31st July. Please refer to this.
