Your Everyday Capsule Collection
Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop
Age is nothing but a number when it comes to looking fabulous. And no one does it better than The Sewing Workshop Pattern Collection. From beautiful fabrics to stunning colors, this runway fashion showcase of handmade garments will challenge you to rethink how you dress and what you want to sew. The Sewing Workshop is known for its carefree chic combinations of daring fabrics, textures and patterns in layers of drape and shape. Linda will interpret how to read the trends of the moment and fit those concepts into making real clothes for you. Thursday at 12:00pm on the Expo Stage
BurdaStyle Fashion Show

Wear Your BurdaStyle!
Friday is Wear Your BurdaSyle Day at the EXPO! Stop by the BurdaStyle booth to meet Meg Healy, BurdaStyle’s online sewing editorial director and instructor, and collect a special gift for ‘wearing your BurdaStyle’.
It’s Not About Covering Your Body, It’s About Flattering Your Figure
Enjoy a style show of loose-fitting garments showing the dramatic difference between those that are simply large enough to cover, and those that fit well. The ease of wearing clothes cut for a more casual, unconstructed look isn’t about size – it’s about fitting key areas to achieve your most flattering silhouette, which creates the most comfortable wearing, too. See how Cynthia works with color to capitalize on the look, creating lively, fashion-forward looks with patterns that are easy to fit and truly wonderful to wear. Saturday at 12:00pm on the Expo Stage
