Pink & Red Fashion Show!

6 Comments

The Sewing & Stitchery Expo held February 25-28 in Puyallup, WA is the largest consumer sewing show in the country. Last year, for the first time the show held a Charity Fashion Show at 8:30 AM on Sunday morning. Organizers were worried that people would not come to the early morning Go RED Fashion show. But sewing enthusiasts not only came, they WORE RED to honor the charity – the American Heart Association.

This year, The show is kicking off Sunday with a PINK AND RED Fashion Show and we are happy to announce that Coats & Clark will be the official sponsor.

For the show, we are partnering with both the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society to fight the two biggest killers of women in America — heart disease and breast cancer.

Because the audience got into the spirit and wore RED last year – we are asking everyone to again create an outfit – this time PINK AND RED. The Expo and Coats & Clark are partnering to make “audience participation” an important element of this event. Here’s what’s planned so far. If you want to make a “pink and red” outfit – plan send a digital picture. The Expo will put the pictures up on the internet, and for one month prior to the show, the public will be asked to vote for their favorites. The TOP TEN vote getters will be invited to model in the show. All ten winners will receive a prize from Coats & Clark – and the TOP VOTE GETTER will be announced at the Fashion Show and receive a GRAND prize. The final details will be announced on the Sewing & Stitchery Expo website and newletter and on CoatsandClark.com. Be thinking about your potential pink & red outfit and how you can feature THREAD in your design.
