I took these pictures on my iphone with instagram since we were inside the whole time and the lighting wasn't great.
Friday was great. Once I flew in I called Erin and said I was in the lobby! She ran out to the lobby for a big hug and some tears. It had been almost a year since we had seen eachother in person. We had a little time to talk and eat and I got to meet Amy.
Once everyone got back from the shop hop I worked at the registration desk which was fun meeting people that way. Then it was time to get ready for the meet and greet! My roomie Amy and I got into our hotel room at the Little American Hotel which was so pretty and the rooms where HUGE!
I went out of my comfort zone and walked up to just about everyone I could in groups and introduce myself and get to know others since I was only there for a short time I didn't want to be mad at myself for not meeting everyone I could in person. Then it was time for Erin & Amy to raffle off prizes. The hotel had not given them a microphone so Erin asked me to shout loud and get everyone's attention and do the raffle! Well I do have to say that was really fun. I just about lost my voice too.
The reception even got a little crazy! I don't know why but I always stick my tongue out it comes from my side of the family. This is Jen, Angela, Jessica & I. This just might be my favorite picture from the weekend! Thanks Jen for taking such a fun one.
I was really excited to meet Jeni and Amanda! We had chatted so much and we have so much fabric in common that I knew we would just have tons of fun together! All I can say is that meeting everyone is person really put the icing on the cake! Now there are voices that come out of my computer.
Me, Jeni & Erin
Amanda & I
We also got our Quilting Bee group Bee Tweet that I started over on flickr together to get a picture. We were only missing 3 people. How awesome is that?!?!?
Erin & I friends ( in real life) for over 11 years. I am so happy that Amy got this good one of us. My smile is starting to look forced at this point. So many pictures!
My roomie Amy and I. We had been talking on the phone for a long time now and it was so awesome to finally meet in real life. I just love her.
The one bad side to Sewing Summit was coming home and realizing that all the awesome people live FAR away from me and it is going to be a long time before I can meet them again. I highly recommend saving up your money to go next year. Everyone is just so nice and the classes are of course amazing and really fun.
