Meissner Sewing Takes On Quilt, Craft & Sewing 2017

Emily Achondo

Meissner Sewing & Vacuum Centers has a big week ahead. This Thursday through Saturday, along with our crew of Meissner Makers, several of the Meissner staff will be temporarily relocating to the Cal Expo Event Center for the 2017 Sacramento Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival on March 16-18, 2017.

Featuring free workshops, new products, and more, the Sacramento Quilt, Craft, & Sewing Festival is one of the largest crafting events of the year.

All Meissner Sewing locations will be maintaining regular business hours, but many of the Meissner crew will be found in Booths #100-603 of Buildings C & D at Cal Expo.

Equipped with all your favorite brands and a variety of products, the Meissner booths will be filled with plenty of inspiration and creative tools to get the next project under way.

“The huge selection of products that we bring to the Sacramento Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival, plus the five free classes we are sponsoring daily in classroom 1, makes the Meissner Sewing booth feel more like a pop-up version of one of our stores,” Sara Curtis, marketing coordinator said.

Each of the booths will include something unique, as they will feature the latest machines and products from Baby Lock, BERNINA, Brother, Janome and Viking. After being introduced in January, Husqvarna Viking will be included in the Meissner Sewing lineup at the festival for the first time.

Select products from Floriani, AccuQuilt, Gammill, Quilter’s Rule, Koala Studios, Fashion Sewing Cabinets of America, and others will also be available.

Attendees of the event will find exclusive show pricing on machines and special festival bundle offers.

Simply put, there will be “over 24 booths of Meissner Sew-spiration,” Drew Schleter, assistant store manager in Sacramento, said.

In addition to offering a wide variety of products, the Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival presents several learning opportunities. Over the course of the three-day festival, Meissner Sewing will be sponsoring free classes each day.

Hope Yoder of Designs by Hope Yoder will be in Classroom 1 each morning, teaching classes called “Digital Cutting for Quilters and Embroiderers” and “Design Hacks with the CraftNCut Software.” She will also be available in the booth throughout the day, performing live demonstrations.

Sharon Minor of AccuQuilt will be providing instruction on techniques for achieving fast, accurate fabric cuts using the AccuQuilt cutting system. Patricia Simmons of Quilter’s Rule will be in Classroom 1 at 1:00 p.m. each day for “Templates, Rulers and Machine Quilting primer” where she will share why templates are made of different thickness and strategies for achieving perfect, small points. RNK Distributing will also be in the classroom each afternoon with the classes “Quilters Select” and “Total Quilter.”
