Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2019 Sewing & Stitchery Expo February 28 - March 3!

All submissions are due by July 25, 2018

Free Stage

175 attendees • 45 minutes

The Free Stage is located between the Ticket Sales Office and the vendor floor in the Showplex Building. These lecture/demo sessions are not ticketed, and are open to all Expo attendees. Speakers selected for this venue must strictly adhere to the 45-minute time limit (all other Sewing & Stitchery Expo rules & regulations apply). A microphone and flip chart is provided; speakers are responsible for any other tools, materials or props they may require.

One Needle

100 to 200 students • 45 minutes

This is a lecture/demo format. Rooms for these sessions seat between 100 and 200 attendees. If selected for this venue, your schedule will be varied. An instructional sheet containing presentation notes and tips is not required, but very appreciated by attendees. Be sure to indicate the type of A/V equipment you will require and every effort will be made to place you in a room with the requested equipment.

Two Needles

36 to 175 students • 90 minutes

You will teach a complete a “project” or a specific “technique” either as a lecture/demo using step-outs and in-progress samples, or as a simple hands-on project. (Sewing machines/sergers are not available for Two Needle classes, however steps using a sewing machine and/or serger may be demonstrated using the instructors’ personal machine). Speakers are required to provide an extensive educational instruction sheet for each attendee.

Three Needles

30 to 50 students • 2.5 hours

These sessions offer attendees a hands-on sewing experience! Please indicate if you require sewing machines or sergers (provided), or if your class presents a fitting/drafting, handwork, beading, or other applied technique that does not require the use of a machine. The goal is for the attendee to learn a new technique and/or complete a project within the time allowed. If selected, you will teach on a rotational basis similar to the One Needle sessions.

Four Needles

30 to 50 students • 4 hours (pre-show only)

These four-hour sessions are offered on Wednesday (pre-show). This is a hands-on class using sewing machines/sergers (provided), or a focus on drafting, handwork, beading, or other applied technique that does not require a machine.
