Sewing Summit, I have no words. It was an unbelievably incredible experience! The people, the classes, the conversations, the crafting, the talent, the friends. I am still in awe of how nice everyone is, how amazing it is to socialize with crafters in person and how much I love this community. I took so few photos, and absolutely none with people (so lame, right?)! So, this is the first post of many! I'll be sharing more photos taken by others in the coming week or so. If you have photos of the two of us together or of my class, please do let me know the link and/or email them to me! I'd love to have a copy :) Please and thank you!
So, we have to start somewhere, right? The above photo is one of the quilts made by a super secret bee (that I was lucky to participate in!), for Erin and Amy for putting on this weekend. It was organized by the lovely Ali and quilted by Chris! They turned out so pretty!
Aneela kindly pointed out, I was just doing research! Some won, most purchased. Look at all the lovelies! I managed to buy a whole rainbow of colors, and not even on purpose! If you're in SLC anytime soon, be sure to check out Material Girls and Pine Needles!
Menchies! Ridiculously cute!!
Blazing Needles. I had grand intentions of learning to knit, which didn't quite happen, but I look forward to trying soon! I bought this delicious twinkle yarn. It's so soft. I'm content just snuggling it :)
There was also swag to be had on Saturday night at a dinner put on by the lovely Elena & Jennifer! Thanks ladies!!
Jess of Urban Patchwork and Free Motion Quilting with Alison of Cluck Cluck Sew! I am slowly plugging away on the quilting! Also took great classes with Bari J, Amanda of Mrsmcporkchop, and an author's panel! :)
Katherine gave me a few last minute tips that really helped (thanks again dear!). I was absolutely bursting to spill the big secret, Kona cards for all my students!! Thank you Robert Kaufman! :) I am excited to share more details of my class along with update The Art of Choosing with new content for all of you who couldn't make it to the conference very soon!
I met so many wonderful people, made new friends and caught up with old friends. It was so cool! As Jacey called it, it was like walking into the Internet! How awesome is that?! Thank you so so so much to Erin and Amy for dreaming up and putting on this awesome event! I'm already excited for next year!
More soon! Still trying to recover from all the lack of sleep! And get the apartment back in order, hehe! :)
