Inspiration...Where do you find yours?
For three days each year you can join thousands of enthusiasts at Original Sewing & Quilt Expo, where everyone — attendees, teachers, vendors and Expo staff — finds inspiration in the extreme! They all agree: the Expo is a motivating, educational, satisfying and completely inspiring experience.
You’ll see new project ideas in vendor booths, display galleries and classrooms; you’ll find inspiration in unusual fabric combinations that help inform your color choices; you’ll have a chance to get your hands on new tools and discover ways to help you do things better, or easier (or at all!).
It’s a real community! When you’re there, you’ll inevitably inspire someone — and someone else will do the same for you, over and over again.
To empower you to do something new, with confidence and joy, to do things you didn’t think you could do, or would do, or enjoy doing as much, is our inspiration, and that’s why we bring you Original Sewing & Quilt Expo once each year, for three satisfying days.
So where do we find all that inspiration the other 362 days each year? Most of us rely on magazines, television and the internet when we’re actively seeking something new. These are our 24/7 tools, available all year long. Original Sewing & Quilt Expo is tickled to have recently become part of Creative Crafts Group, the company known for bringing you such inspirational resources as Sew News, Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting, McCall’s Quilting, Quilters Newsletter, Creative Machine Embroidery and Quiltmaker magazines, as well as the public television series Sew It All and Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting. Each of these brands offers many wonderful, active touch points for enthusiasts, including websites, web videos, products, blogs and online communities. It’s energizing for us to be surrounded by even more inspiration than ever!
