March                                                            2020


On the Road . . .


Seeing green this month? The top color band on SCHMETZ Quilting needles is green. How will you celebrate March as National Quilting Month? Are you sewing with friends on March 18th for Worldwide Quilting Day? Throw in luck of the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day and maybe some green beer. The color green is popular in the month of March.

I have returned from the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup WA. In fact, I need recovery time! With over 22,000 attendees, 400 vendors and 300 classes, this show is the sewing & quilting party for North America. It is massive with shopping, classes, sewlebrities, friends, and inspiration galore. Curious about the show? Check my blog ( with awesome pics from the show floor, backstage and among sewing friends. You will be inspired! Plan to attend next year. Mark February 25–28, 2021 on your calendar.

Get out your Quilting needles! March is an awesome month to quilt with friends! Sew SCHMETZ & Grabbit® Too!
