Getting Ready for the Big Show !

Once a year, our very dear friend Vickie Hundert who is the owner and operator of QSC Expos LLC, holds a quilt show here in Reno, Nevada. It is called the Sew Original Quilt & Creative Expos. It is a show with about 60 vendors held over 3 days in June. This year the show starts June 11th and runs through June 13th and is being held at the Grand Sierra Resort. I’ve added the link above so you can see the information about the show. If you get a chance and want to visit the wonderful Reno, Nevada area, this would be a great excuse to get out and see what Reno has to offer.

There will be several educators showing you wonderful products, techniques and ideas. Pam Clarke has a beautiful quilt design she will be showing you how to design. clarke-flower-cabin-200

Several free lecture / demos will be going on during the event. Look under the free venues tab on the Sew Original Quilt & Creative Expos website (link above) and plan your day or days of fun!


Now I wouldn’t be a good salesman if I didn’t mention a few opportunities that Topaz Quilting & Embroidery will be having at the Expo, would I? So, if you like discounts, you’ll definitely find them here at the show. We are receiving in wonderful fabrics and patterns even now as you read this. There are wonderful fun prints and tonals that we will have in pre-cut packs and can cut for you off the bolt. Take a look at some wonderful applique’ designs developed in-studio as well as some favorites developed by Accu-Quilt. How are you at quilting? Do you like to be involved with a “Block of the Month” group? Well, we’re offering a Halloween themed “BOM” over 4 months. I can’t show you here, but I can tell you that if you come by the booth during the expo, we’ll have it hanging up and you’ll be able to see if it’s something you’d like to do. We’ll have all the details at the booth for you.

We’ve received permission to sell you several of their designs at a discount to you during the expo, but you need to come by the booth to get all the details. You’ll see wonderful samples of their designs and unique tricks and materials we’ve used to tweak them and make them beautiful!

Well I can go on and on about the wonderful educators and all the vendors with great ideas and products, but then I’ll miss the event myself. So come on by and see for yourself. Oh, and don’t tell your mom but we have candy in the booth too….
