Original Sewing & Quilt Expo – Chantilly, VA – October 1, 2 and 3


I’m super excited!  I’ve thought about posting this last month and then time flew by.  It dawned on my this evening that I had to post this before I forgot again.

For the last couple years I’ve been going to the Sewing Expo in Chantilly, VA.  It is a blast!  I save up every year to go since I love to take classes.  I learn a lot about sewing. If you are at all interested in sewing or an expert seamstress this event is for you.  There are some frugal things to be had, however, this event has all sorts of expensive goodies to drool at!

If you are interested in attending and haven’t attended before, then I have a deal for you!    Email me at hollys.savings (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject:  “I want to attend the Sewing Expo!” and I can give you a  “Bring-A-Friend” code!  What this means is AFTER you sign-up and give the code, you will receive a voucher for 2 class tickets, one for you and one for me.  It’s that easy!   Click HERE for more information on how this works.

Hurry! Sign-up before 9/22/09 and you can get a discount on registration for classes.

Here is a description from the website!

Welcome to Original Sewing & Quilt Expo! Get ready for your annual treat, the only event each year where it’s all about YOU.
