American Sewing Expo - Novi excitement

Wow! Novi American Sewing Expo just concluded its first day - and while I hardly have a voice left - it has been a GREAT day!
Tomorrow is the Passion for Fashion event - a Project Runway spinn off. Sew - at the end of the day - we get to sit and watch the contestant designers show their garments and then await the judges determination. Honestly, I forget the exact 'challenge' - but they each have a model car on display at their work area that they were given, as the 'inspiration' for their garment. Truly a very creative challenge.
I'll be sure to take photos tomorrow night to share - along with my 2 cents worth!

It was especially fun to see a customer from my old shop days at the show, and in one of my classes! Hi Cheryl - and I'm not sure I'm spelling your name correctly!

What a treat when women can escape into their creative 'world' in such a huge 'candy store' as this - and often with friends who share the love of sewing with them! Seems many have gift-making on the brain - an indication of the giving spirit of sewers!~!!

Hi, Londa! Met you in 2009 at Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA. Glad you are enjoying Novi. I can sympathize about the voice. I wanted to tell you about something I use (besides hot tea). It's a cough drop called Fisherman's Friend. Very soothing for sore throats, cuts phlem, low sugar. Only thing that will work for a cough sometimes. But they are strong! Don't chew them, just suck on them. I get them at Albertson's grocery, Rite-Aid pharmacy, or Wal-Mart, to name a few. Thanks for sharing with us!

Wow - thanks. At this point, I'm willing to try most anything and so far lemon and honey isn't working. Traveling is so much fun with my old high school buddy, it's hard to not chit chat!
Will try to find Fisherman's Friend - but my challenge (big time!) will be not chewing!!! Londa relaxing on the road in a Hampton!!!
