Original Sewing & Quilt Expo - Kansas City, MO

"Kansas City Here I Come!"  Last weekend with my colleague, Rita Farro, we marveled at the delightful examples of sewing. From multi-media to garment construction to machine embroidery, we saw a wide array of sewing projects. In my opinion, the most creative fabrication for machine embroidery was a screen door. Yes!  How adorable and creative! I'm thinking every screen door in America should have a personalized screen door with embroidery.

Thanks Betty!
Another sewing project that stood out was the raincoat ensemble created by a young talent! Look at the fabric - oilcloth with a comfy purple contrasting lining. This project continues with the cap sleeve blouse, skirt and even a wonderful wallet.

Macy, you are an inspiration to all of us!

Another few standout projects are Florilegium multi-media postcards and fabrics, the ruffled handbags, choi fish and the list goes on.  Enjoy the pics . . . .




No trip to Kansas City could be complete without a few good meals. Thanks to Virginia from the local American Sewing Guild for introducing Rita and I to fried chicken at Stroud's and the best BBQ around at Ricky's Pit Bar-B-Que. Delicious!

Those port ribs do not stand a chance with Virgina and Rita!

Thanks Kansas City . . .  and special thanks to the best tour guide and sewing enthusiasts, Virginia!
