Sew much to share: CreativFestival 2010

FRESH Faces at the Creativ Show

We wanted to share a few images from the show floor:

Linda Sparks (l) & friends

Linda Sparks‘ corsetry always gets attention and fills classes. Her booth is packed with inspiration and her classes (in the Janome 3160 classroom) were filled with enthusiastic students. Linda’s book, The Basics of Corset Building (or here) is the go-to resource on this timeless technique.

Lush details

First Creativ Show –  Perfect for new Sewists:

Happy Sew Lucky brought their debut products to the show, ready to inspire with easy-to-do sewing projects. Animals, ornaments and banners added unique character to their booth, in bright colors and bold graphics. Creator Berene Campbell’s (l) enthusiasm is contagious.

What's not to LOVE?

Quilting goes mod:

Brights, funky florals and graphic solids make for simple, contemporary quilts.

Mad about Patchwork’s tagline is “simple – fresh – fun” and their booth inspired with that message.

The Creativ was filled with familiar and new faces, showing us that sewing and quilting continue to be a passion from one generation to the next. How many people did we get to visit with that have been coming for years? There were solo shoppers on a mission, others with babes in arms that could not miss the show and countless couples of friends and mother-daughter duos. The variety of offerings from merchandise to shows to classes had the proverbial “something (many somethings?) for everyone.”

Do you have a ‘must see’ show in your area? What kinds of things do you love most about the show?

  1. Hi Ruth
    Thanks for saying such lovely things about us and our little Happy Sew Lucky venture. We had a blast at the show and it was great to meet everyone there, including yourself, of course. (Next year I think we should mix up martini’s in our booth – just to keep the party going! ) Until then, happy stitching…
    Take care,
