FABRIC SHOPPING TOUR
The fabric shopping tour is a definite highlight and should not be missed. LA Fashion District has a 13 block radius of fabric, trims, notions and more. We charter buses, take over the fabric/fashion district and have a ball!
BOOK YOUR STAY
My favorite thing to do when I travel is to book my lodging with AIRBNB It saves me so much money. There is a post HERE on 10 Ways To Save For The Conference which should help you too. The event hotel is the amazing JW MARRIOTT @ LA LIVE in Downtown Los Angeles. We have held the conference for the 5th year in a row now at this gorgeous hotel. Many times our attendees try to share a room at the hotel with another attendee or friend.
A special room rate will be made available soon and we will email the link on registered attendees.
