The bad: As an apparel seamstress, I was bothered by the selection of classes for apparel sewing. I didn't take any because most of them were really basic apparel sewing. Maybe it's because I studied clothing construction in college, but I really would've love to see intermediate or advanced classes.
There were a lot more expenses once I got there that I didn't realize I would have to pay. Conferences are way more expensive than just the conference ticket. I don't know if I'll go again just because it was a huge expense.
