2009 Sewing & Stitchery Expo

The 2009 Puyallup Expo, the largest sewing expo in the country, was a wonderful chance for us to visit with loyal Pendleton fans from around the country and meet new ones. We also had a chance to introduce people outside of Portland to our new ColorPlay Wool® yarn and carded wool. New needle felters were made that weekend as folks discovered the fun and versatility of the super-easy craft. We also connected with new designers who are eager to work with our wool – so look for new patterns this year from Linda Curtis, Pauline Richards, LaFred, Linda McPhee and others. Thanks for all the creative people who stopped by the booth to show off their own creations from Pendleton fabrics.

So, we are back from the Sewing Expo and we've had a chance to catch our breath - so here are the pictures of some of the AMAZING garments that we saw during the show.

Also, we always love our visits with the Make It With Wool Winners. These talented designers are so inspiring to everyone who meets them. The attention to detail and dedication to excellence makes me want to try something new. Don’t forget, at the end of June we will be hosting the national winners here at the Woolen Mill Store! Come, visit, be inspired too!
