Sewing's Next Generation


Sewing’s Next Generation is a youth sewing and quilting competition where today’s young sewers (ages 18 and under) can show off their projects and share the fun of sewing and quilting with a live audience. Whether it hangs in the closet, hangs on a wall or hangs out on beds and sofas, the creativity involved will inspire audiences of all ages.

Saturday at 2:30 PM on the Expo Stage  


Prizes will be awarded in each of three experience groups: Beginner (1-2 years), Intermediate (3-5 years) and Advanced (6+ years). Plus, everyone who participates will receive a certificate and swag bag. Each participant and accompanying guests will receive FREE admission for their day at the Expo.
