I had a great time at the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Lakeland, FL this month. Got to meet some of you in person, catch up with some quilt industry friends, met some new companies for potential collaborations, did a little bit of shopping and found a new hobby to try! I’ll keep my words to a minimum and let you enjoy the pictures I took during the two days I was there. Enjoy!
|Meeting Lorena at the Fabric Warehouse booth.
|Meeting another Crafty Gemini fan and the Wandering Stitches booth!

|Met up with Flor again this year. She too is on a weight loss journey! Go, Flor!

People always mistake us for each other… not sure why!

|A GORGEOUS Janome Memory Craft 8900 I was drooling over!
|The Sew & Quilt Shop from Bunnell, FL was demo-ing a Schacht Cricket loom and I was totally impressed!
I wanted one so bad… More on that in another blog post.
