We’re not sure if there is a bigger month of the year that boasts so many different fairs and shows. From the iconic and Annual Seattle Home Show and So Northwest Women’s Show to Emerald City Comic Con and the Quilters Anonymous Quilt Show, there is pretty much something for everyone during this month. Take a look:
Seattle Home Show CenturyLink Field Event Center, 1000 Occidental Ave. S. Feb. 23 – Mar. 3, 2019
It’s hard to believe, but this marks the 75th anniversary of the iconic show featuring displays of home and garden products. Here you’ll find daily “Meet the Experts” seminars, cooking demonstrations by local chefs, “She Shed” displays, ideas for “living green,” landscape designs, arts and crafts, home decorating tips, live music and a wine and beer garden. Open Mon.-Fri. from 12-6:00 p.m. The show opens two hours earlier on Sat. and Sun.
This expo offers four days of creative community learning and inspiring. Sewing enthusiasts of all ages will appreciate the classes and ideas offered here. Tons of classes to choose from and of course you’ll find the latest material and equipment on sale as well.
Nerd Faire Lynnwood Convention Center, 3711 196th St SW, Lynnwood, 98036 Mar. 2, 2019
Considered a “mini con” for all things nerdy and geeky, Nerd Faire has a goal of supporting local shops and businesses while also creating a community for “all of Nerdery and Geekdom.” This is the first year of this endeavor offering cosplay contest, fandom meetups, story times, meet-and-greets with princesses and heroes, trading card game duels, classes and plenty of local artisans, hand-crafters, authors and artists. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Imagine your world a little smaller at the show where “little things mean everything.” Incredible displays to spark your own creativity, workshops from the masters and lots of dealers selling everything you can imagine in tiny form. Open from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Sat. and closing one hour earlier on Sun.
Hairdressers are not the only ones who will get a kick out of this show. Now presenting its 7th show, the Reign of Style Hair Show, the show is meant for hairstylists, beauticians, make-up artists, cosmetology students and fashion designers to show off their talents, creativity and passions with each other, but every day folk will enjoy the talent show featuring what these talented people can do with hair, especially during the “fantasy” category.
For over 30 years, the Northwest Women’s Show has been offering fashion, fun, freebies, celebrities and more to local women. Sponsored by KOMO News 4, many of the station’s on-air talent will be there to greet you along with special guests Mario Lopez, Lindsay Arnold (“Dancing with the Stars”) and do-it-yourselfer Matt Muenster. You can even try out for ABC’s “Shark Tank.” Two stages featuring entertainment, fashion show and seminars will be offered along with hundreds of exhibitors selling their latest and greatest gizmos and gadgets. The festivities takes place from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on Sat. and from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Stay away if you abhor crowds, but if you are a comics fan, you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! “ECCC is a celebration of fandom from every corner of the nerdy galaxy, coming together in an inclusive, creative, and collaborative atmosphere,” says the website. This year’s special guests include appearances by Jason Isaacs, Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard and Caleb McLaughlin (“Stranger Things”), Rupert Grint (“Harry Potter”), Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”) alongside a slew of comic book creators, artists and more.
While honestly we’ve never heard of this event before (which might make sense since it is “anonymous”) but it has been going for several years now. This year marks its 38th year and this year’s “Color Dance in Fabric & Thread” will feature artist Diane Coombs. The event offers free demonstration of various and untraditional quilt making techniques all day long. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. each day except for Sunday which will close up shop one hour earlier.
Marshall Martin from TV’s “Antiques Roadshow” will be on hand to appraise dolls while teddy bear expert, John Port, will be appraising the cuddly critters while the sales floor will be packed with every type of doll or bear you can imagine as well as furniture and accessories.

It’s been a long time coming, but finally the old viaduct is coming
"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
