View from our room. Most of the weekend the mountains were covered by the storm.
I had an amazing time & look forward to more Sewing Summits in the future. It's already becoming a dream in my memory especially since I didn't take nearly enough pictures. But I did get a few. Enjoy!!
Some of the first people I met in the lobby were Bari J & Suzy. They are the sweetest ladies & I had a great time hanging out with them throughout the weekend, especially Saturday night in the BabyLock sewing room. Sadly I didn't get a picture with Suzy, they had to leave before the goodbyes on Sunday, but hopefully I'll get to see her again soon. :)
Friday was early check-in and then the shop hop. 50 of us climbed onto a chartered bus and visited 3 different quilt shops. I found some great stuff (more on that later)! After the shop hop we climbed into my Jeep & a few of us went to Blazing Needles yarn shop. My new friend, Jacey, taught Rachel & I about the different weights of yarn and helped me pick out a beautiful rose colored skein of malabrigo. That night at the open sewing session she taught me the knit & purl stitches.
Saturday was class day. I learned a lot of fun techniques from each of the classes. We also had 2 classes before goodbyes on Sunday.
Tailoring by Hand with Gertie
Marvelous Minis with Amanda
And I met some amazing women!!
Me & Chris. Such a sweetheart.
I was super nervous to meet her, but she is just as sweet in person as she is on Twitter. Everyone was! It was so wonderful to be a part of this amazing experience.
Busty Larue. She's awesome!
With Jana. I think she was trying not to laugh.
She & Jen were a couple more who were at our crazy Saturday night sewing party.
Some of my favorite gals & more from the Saturday night crew. Jill, Rachel, Jacey, & Me
All I can say is that there was lots of stitching, cracking jokes to the point of tears, & maybe a little rum involved in a wonderful weekend!!
And between swag & purchases I came home with a lot more than what I arrived with!
Beautiful weather Sunday for the drive home.
* Sorry about all the pictures of me. I had to prove to Jake that I actually met and befriended these women, not just snapped a random picture of them as they walked past. :)
