40th Anniversary Bash

Sewing & Stitchery Expo. 40 years. 1984-2024.

We’ll be celebrating 40 years of sewing fun all week, but we want a party!

We’re teaming up with Joe Vecchiarelli and BERNINA to host a special anniversary bash! Attendees are invited to join all your friends at the Showplex Free Stage on Saturday night for music, refreshments, drawings for great ‘party favors’, and great memories from 40 years of our shared passion for sewing.
