I attended this today-big 3 day event which is held all over the country at different times so I'm sure some of you have gone before.

Usually I find a ton of stuff to buy but this year the fabrics and patterns just did not thrill me. I thought maybe it was me but ran into a couple people I know and they were disappointed too. Not sure what the problem really was-I spent money so must have found something LOL:bg:

Actually put an embroidery machine on layaway(posted on machine embroidery forum) and bought a new cutting mat-larger than what I currently had as well as a couple of patterns and 2 "kits" -one for a bag I liked and one for a wall hanging for my niece for Christmas but just came away feeling like something was missing.....

Hopefully the ones in other parts of the country are better this year!

Am I the only one not finding fabric they like this year?
