The annual Monogram and Embroidery Trade Show (METS) is scheduled to take place January 29th-31st in St. Charles, Illinois (outside of Chicago) at the Pheasant Run Resort. METS is three intensive days of Embroidery Education. Classes are taught by Industry Veterans, and are based on skill level. Classes include: production, hooping, Internet, pricing, marketing, accounting, hiring employees, mobile embroidery, insurance, special applications, multi-media, and much more. In addition, there is a series of classes just for Digitizers. Most of the courses are not brand specific, so there is something for everyone, regardless of the equipment used.

METS has many other exciting features including: A Trade Show, An Embroidery Contest (with great prizes), Roundtable Rooms, and a Gala Dinner & Dance. But perhaps the best part of all is the wonderful Networking Opportunities. Unlike most Trade Shows, just about all of the attendees stay on-site at the Resort. That means you have ample opportunity to make new friends and discuss important issues, the entire weekend. And with attendance in the 200+ range, there will be plenty of socializing going on!

METS draws in Embroiderers from all over the country and even from outside the country, so you get the chance to learn how others do things in different places. Past events have had participants from Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Jamaica, and Canada.
