Indianapolis ASG Expo

I had the privilege of attending the ASG Sewing Expo as a vendor last week. My friend Annette drove down with me and helped me set up. She stayed with me the whole time and kept me sane - running zipper bag demos and talking to customers, taking orders, whatever was needed. Beth Meyers, my trusty assistant from IEC, joined us on Friday and Saturday. She brought her machine to demo the larger bags I do, but it decided it was having none of it and ended up going to the repair shop instead. My little Pooh Innovis 500 had to take over. It did a pretty good job as long as the person making the bag was happy with lavender thread on Thursday and pink thread on Friday and Saturday. We were NOT changing that thread. We had a great time. We saw old friends and made lots of new ones too. Annette took pictures of almost all of our zipper bag students. We'll be adding them to my website and to my Facebook page as soon as I get a few spare moments. Here are two showing how much fun we were having! I lost track of how many little zippered coin purses we actually made, but it was a lot.
