You can't beat a great Sewing Expo and our history connects!

Puyallup Sewing Expo happens!

I help my friend Annette Millard as she
 teaches classes at the Puyallup sewing Expo 
Each Spring we spend 4 to 5 days in sewing heaven.

This year was made extra special!!

Ann helps me run this Lutterloh blog.  
We have never met!! 

I started this blog after finding a box of 1950's Lutterloh
pattern books and making some fashions only to find
little if any information online to help me.  
Ann joined me in 2009, She has added so much 
to my blog, when I was busy with my kids weddings, 
and grand babies being born, Ann was writing posts!

We met for the first time on Wed.  

How amazing!
We like so many of the same fabrics and when
we had a moment we talked and talked.
She lives two states away from me and
she had to fly to come to the Sewing Expo.

We are at an event where Kenneth D. King
 will speak to us. He is a designer from New York
and it was breath taking!  If you aren't sure
Who Kenneth is his work made the hats 
Elton John was famous for.  

One little note, I'm sorry I didn't get your name,
however I met a follow Lutterloh pattern lover.
I was standing in line for one of the many classes
at Sewing Expo and there was another person
passionate for this wonderful pattern making system.
Hopefully she will see this and share something about her experience with the patterns.
