this fantastic fitting book that I use regularly:
After my quick consult with Sarah, I headed over to meet someone in the class who I recognized: Audrey from Sew Tawdry. If you don't already read her blog, you may recognize her from FabricMart Fabricista's Challenge 2013. The first 2 things I noticed about Audrey were that her skin is gorgeous: glowing and flawless, and she is really tall! I felt even shorter than normal! It's always nice to meet sewing bloggers IRL. They really are so nice and welcoming. :)
Most of my time at the Expo was spent trying out new sewing machines. I have been thinking about upgrading mine I was happy to have the opportunity to try out several different brands. I had a feeling that the Expo would be primarily geared toward quilters and I was right. All of the machines I tried had quilting capabilities which honestly, I do not need. I tried out the Viking 960Q, Bernina B 560, and the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900QCP. Of the 3, I liked the Janome the best. Janome also had the best and most knowledgeable saleslady. She was honestly a riot and I had a great time test driving the machine and chatting with her. In the end, I decided not to buy any of them. I'm going to focus on finding a machine without any quilting features, since they will only drive up the price, and I have no desire to pay for features I will never use. Next up: Bras!
