  • are there any more tickets available (ie, will tickets be available at the door?) the online link no longer works...

  • Man. This makes me wish I lived there.
    Any chance you folks might take this show on the road? Meet the people?

    It really is nice to see happy folks doing happy work!

  • Those pics sure puts one in the mood for crafting. I think I will go and dig around thru my stuff and see what I can make. Thanks guys and gals.

  • Just got home from Stitch Fest...it was fantastic! Only dragging myself away from the new book to post this comment and let you know what a great time I had.

  • The event was fun and inspiring for my 10 yr old daughter and for me! Martha even came up to us and chatted with my daughter about sewing - so memorable for her (and me)! We really enjoyed all the craft displays. Seeing the illustrated steps of the different crafts and watching the demonstrations by the Martha Stewart staffers made us feel like we could do the projects ourselves. We are excited to try all the crafts in the book! Friends and family will be receiving lots of lovely gifts! The book is beautiful, by the way.

  • Jealous that I could not be there! Looks like it was amazing!

  • I was there last night! I really enjoyed the food & drinks, tutorials and making my own tomato pin cushion! The book is wonderful...it'll keep me busy this spring & summer. Congratulations on such a fun event. Looking forward to more :)

  • Whew! It was a whirlwind trip, with the Amtrak trains being cancelled and all, but I'm glad I made it! Congratulations on such a stylish and fun event and on the book! It's gorgeous! Also, thank you, Kirsten and Marcie, for giving me pincusion materials to take home! It was great meeting you and talking with you. I hope there will be another event and that I'll see you there!

    p.s. Do you have instructions for making the bag with the running stitch circles on page 121?

  • [...] dinner we headed over to the MSLO building! I was so excited for Stitchfest. I had bought my tickets weeks earlier after Lisa pointed me to the event announcement. I do not [...]

  • Had a great time at the event. LOVED the idea in the book about creating a better cutting table by adding adhesive metal ruler tape to the edge of the table. My only problem is, I can't seem to find it! Home Depot & Michaels were a no-go and what I'm finding on line seems to be paper tape (not metal) and they warn that it can stretch so you have to be careful applying it along a long edge. Any suggestions of where to find the right stuff!?
