The Online Connection
I don't believe I ate a single lunch alone.....the "come and join us" atmosphere permeated the event. The discussions were lively and thought provoking. Meeting so many of you was definitely a highlight for me.
Let me share a little more about my fabulous time in photos.
Note the quilterly decor in the Convention Centre....how appropriate.
Starting off with a good laugh....this was in our goody bags we received at registration.
There's Leanne hiding behind her bag.
The result of day of dyeing with Malka...
Hanging out with Chawne....how wonderful. I spent some fabulous, quality time with Beth and Chawne...unfortunately I didn't get Beth's photo. You know, too busy talking.
Taking a class with Yoshiko Jinzenji.....the quilt in the photo, is actually QAYG
Always fun chatting with Cheryl.... I discovered, not only do we live the same province, but she actually grew up, in the same small city, that I have lived in for the past thirty some years.
Leanne and Cheryl in awe of Yoshiko's work....but there's always time for a photo shoot.
Meeting Jacquie was definitely a highlight for me.....She is so warm and inviting, I felt as if I had known her for years.
I also took a class on hand applique from Debbie, so much fun meeting her, I love her style. I ended up doing everything by machine....how lazy is that.
I met so many interesting people in the class, but forgot to take photos, again, to busy talking (that seems to be a running theme with me)
My purse is full of cards from wonderful people I met and I plan to find some time to go through them all and hunt them down.
Seriously, the connection was simply amazing.
