Excitment and anticipation was in the air our first day at the convention center! Quilter’s Schoolhouse is where we spent our first day. Attendees were given a large booklet of “classes” to choose from, 15 sessions in all! Each session lasted from 15 to 30 minutes, and we had to choose quickly choose which sessions to attend, then zoom off to find the classroom. Before I even knew it, 15 sessions had flown by, and it was 6 in the evening! Boy, was I thankful for my coworkers’ tips to have energy bars and a water bottle with me!
The photo above was snapped quickly while Jane Sassaman showed us some items from her new line of fabric, Early Birds, designed for Free Spirit.
Lynette Anderson got lots of ooohs and aaahs from the classroom as she showed us her latest designs combining hand embroidery with quilting.
Jinny Beyer wowed us with her amazing color theory, and Therm O Web showed us their new Featherlite fusible web and iron-on vinyl. Amy Butler presented her beautiful Lark fabric line, and Edyta Sitar absolutely charmed us with her delightful new book, Reasons for Quilts.
