Sewing Summit Weekend

I had a great time at the Sewing Summit this past weekend.  It was so fun to meet other people who love this stuff like I do.  I was so bad though….I took NO pictures.  Not  None.  My excuse is that my camera decided it’s had enough of me and doesn’t focus anymore…and so I need to buy a new one.  I don’t have the heart to tell my husband how much $$$$  it is though…ouch they are expensive. 
Anyways…so these pictures are Emily’s (thank you Emily).
I taught the class on free motion quilting…it was really fun.   For some it was their first time trying to quilt…for others they were already good at it…so my only hope was that everybody left having tried something new and being more comfortable with it. 
I got good at quilting backwards standing up…this could come in handy someday. 
Anyways…sorry for the lack of photos…hopefully everyone else took lots!  I had such a wonderful time meeting all of you that went…thank you for being so sweet and making it such a great weekend.  And thank you to Vanessa for letting me be your shadow all weekend and letting me drag you to Walmart.  :)

    Alison, it was so nice to meet you and take your class on free motion quilting. I learned so much and am inspired to quilt more. I was also happy I guessed your due date and won some pretty great batting. Woot! Woot!

    Quilting backwards standing up? Damn girl, you are talented!

    I wished I was there, since I've been sitting here looking at my basted Kaleidoscope quilt wondering how the heck to quilt it all weekend. A free-motion class is what I need right now!

    Your class was one of my favorites. And no worries, I took NO pictures either. :(

    It was a great class, Allison. I feel that much more friendly with FMQ now, and am planning to spend some time with the half-used sandwich I brought home! Totally a pleasure meeting you.

    I'm most impressed by the free motion quilting backwards standing up part! My sister in law took your class, went home, and FMQ her first quilt. Pretty awesome, I say!!! Nice to see you again.
