Rachel and Amanda. I was a little afraid that it would be awkward sharing a room with two girls I hardly knew, but it was actually one of the highlights of the whole trip for me. They are both super sweet and I hope we get the chance to see each other again soon!
Pine Needles, Quilt Etc., and The Material Girls Quilts).
Blue Lemon with some of our new friends, and headed down to the Meet & Greet. I'm somewhat shy and not the best at meeting and greeting, so I found it to be a little intimidating, but I did get to chat with a lot of wonderful people there! I had dinner with a small group of girls at the Red Rock Brewery, and then we headed back to the hotel for the do.Good Stitches meeting (where Rachel taught me how to crochet) and to drop off my charms for the Color Wheel Charm Swap.
I started off Saturday in Jess' Improv Piecing class.
Vanessa's photography class, and then I went to Jeni's fabric selection class after lunch. We all got Kona color cards which I was very excited about! I can't seem to find my old one anywhere.
My last class of the day was Getting the Perfect Vintage Fit with Gretchen, which I loved! I'm not much of a garment sewer but I learned so much in her class, I want to make a dress now.
Saturday night I had a lot of fun hanging out by the fireplace in the lobby, chatting with some of my favorite bloggers and working on my Daisychain ABC sampler. We stayed up way too late, as evidenced by this picture that Erin took of us. What am I doing in this picture? I have no idea! We were supposed to make a funny face, but it just looks like I'm sleeping.
Dana's blogging class. Then it was time to say goodbye to everyone! How sad.
Overall I think the conference was a great experience for me. It got me a little out of my comfort zone in terms of meeting new people, I learned a lot, had lots of fun, and left feeling inspired! Thank you Erin and Amy for putting on such a wonderful event!
