Dear Sewing Enthusiasts,

As the proud owner of ASE, it is my pleasure to be producing the 18th annual sewing expo. To best take advantage of all that is available, here is my "sage" advice. First, read this brochure cover to cover. If you are viewing it online, print it out. Next, find some classes that appeal to you, try something new or improve your skills in something you already like to do. It doesn't matter if you have never sewn, or you've been sewing for years, there is wonderful information just waiting for you when you take one of our seminars or workshops. Plan your experience with variety, don't try to take every class in the same day, do some shopping, see a fashion show, do some shopping, watch a demo, do some shopping... you get the idea. Lastly, do not try to do it all in one day! Have fun and let us know what you think by filling out a survey at the Information Station (also a place to check your purchases). Enjoy Yourself.

Sincerely Sew,
