Learn to Sew With a Sewing Star!

Sunday morning at the 2011 Sewing & Stitchery Expo will include a fabulous ProAm runway event and you can be part of it! Katrina Walker is heading up this event for those 18 and younger and sent me the following info:

Attention young sewing enthusiasts! Would you like to be part of the 2011 Sewing and Stitchery Expo's Coats & Clark ProAm Sewing Event on Sunday, March 6th? This exciting event pairs area youth (18 and under) with sewing industry professionals to produce a personalized project for them to show on the runway at Sew Expo.

To be nominated, send an email to stating your age, why you love to sew and why you would like to participate. 

To be considered, youth need to have ready access to the following:
- sewing equipment in good working order.
- a sewing mentor who can help them with hands-on challenges and work with their professional mentor.

Winning candidates will be contacted by Katrina Walker, event coordinator.

Sound like fun and a great opportunity? Definitely! Hurry and send your info in today. Katrina is hoping to have all participants paired up with sewing professionals by October 29th.

I am honored to have Liz, a young customer at our Everett store, paired with me already for this event. I'd love to see you there, too!
