Quiltcon East is rapidly approaching in Savannah, Georgia. It is Feb. 23-26, 2017. There is a large, extremely juried exhibit of 'modern' quilts, vendors, classes & lectures. And Instagram friends from all over the world. I last went to the one held in Austin, Texas, February 2015 and had the BEST time.
It's stressful getting signed up for classes, they fill quickly and it is extremely challenging. I am signed up for two half-day classes, one on Sashiko (Japanese stitching) and the other is Cat Faces with Melissa Averinos. It was a HOT class, filling quickly, and someone I know saw the class in progress at Quiltcon West last year, and she says it looked like SOOOO much fun. I am all for fun!
Here is the promotional pic from Melissa's page (link above)
I am so excited for this class! Plus, I am wait-listed for Swirls & Spirals, machine quilting with the amazing Christa Watson. The aforementioned trouble with registration prevented me from getting the class successfully put in my 'shopping cart' and checked-out, so I was forced to wait-list. I have been assured there is plenty of movement on the wait-list, so I will have fingers crossed and class supplies packed and ready. Cross your fingers for me too, if you would.
Nevertheless, she persisted.
No wait. I meant to say, nevertheless, I will have a great time, but will have to watch out for those cobblestone streets. I'm in no shape for those, and cannot handle them. Watch for Instagram posts!!!
Here's to Quiltcon East and wonderful friends & fun!
