Re-energize your sewing passions by taking a trip to the Expo with your friends. What could be more motivating and fun than taking a trip together for some “serious” sewing and quilting inspiration? Groups currently open are listed below, along with contact information to sign up.


Want to form your own group? We have an incredible offer for groups of 30 or more! Either carpool or arrange for a bus. We’ll help you get started; all you need is an interested group. Call us at 800-699-6309 or email
