Do I need to bring my embroidery machine or supplies to the event?

What if I only want to attend one day of the event, is there a one-day pass price?
Your registration fee includes both days of the event.  One day passes are not available. 
I will be driving to the event.  Is there parking available?
Yes! There is plenty of FREE parking available.  Upon arrival at the Sheraton McKinney Hotel, drive around to the back of the hotel (by the pool area).  Look for the signs that will lead you directly into the event space.  If you are checking into the hotel, we suggest entering through the pool area which takes you to the front desk and then you can follow signs to the trades how.   

My family will be traveling with me. Are they allowed into the event space?
Each person attending the event will need to be registered and must have a badge to enter the show floor and classrooms. 

Do I need to be present to win prizes?
