Chantilly, VA – Sewing Expo – Thursday, 9/29/11- Saturday, 10/1/11

Do you like to sew?  Do you like to create crafts?   Have you heard of the Sewing Expo?

If you haven’t read my posts about this before I wanted to share with you that on Thursday, September 29 – Saturday,  October 1, 2011 is the Chantilly Original Sewing and Quilt Expo located at the Chantilly Expo Center.

I just recently signed up for my classes and I can’t wait to go this year.  Last year I attended the expo feeling bad due to my pregnancy but got a super gift from my hubby a new embroidery machine!  Saving does pay off!  I plan to share some of my creative pieces soon.

If you are interested in attending to see the merchants or to take classes I highly recommend signing up now before September 20, 2011 because that is the deadline for pre-registration.  Click HERE for more information.

Have you attended before?  Will you be attending?  What crafts do you like to do?

I’m just sharing my knowledge and opinions there are no affiliate links in this post.

Newseum ‘Family Fun Deal’: Kids Get in for Free

I just came across this and thought I should share it since we are heading into August and you might want to find a “cool” place to take your kids.   The cost is normally $12.95 for kids and adults it is $19.95.  Children 6 and under are always FREE.

The Newseum is located at Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.

Hours of Operation
The Newseum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Beginning July 1 through Labor Day, the Newseum will waive its admission price for all youth visitors age 18 and younger. (Up to 10 free kids with each paid adult admission.)

“Family Fun Deal” tickets, like all Newseum tickets, are valid for two consecutive days.
