Coats and Clark Pro-Am Charity Fashion Show, Sewing & Stitchery Expo 2012

On the last morning of the Expo we gathered at the Pavilion Runway to celebrate the youth of today modeling their creative sewing projects.  Ah, what talent!    This first pic posted 2 weeks ago on the new SCHMETZneedles Facebook page giving me a chance to organize all the other photos.

Watching the fashion show from back stage!
Professional sewing stars were mentored last year with sewing rookies.  The stars and rookies met for the first time back stage prior to the show. Here are a few pics before, during and after the show.

The audience was full.  Fresh, eager talent walked the runway.  Mentors beamed as rookies modeled their sewing projects.  Coats and Clark supported this wonderful show and celebrated their 200th year of business by giving away charming commemorative gift tins.  Juki gave a way a couple sewing machines and a serger.  Ticket sales for this event was a 100% donation to the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma, serving all of southwest Washington.  It was a great morning full of promise.
