Wow, it feels like I have just gotten here and I go home tomorrow. I can’t really put into words what this experience has been like. It was my first time traveling to teach and I am blown away by numerous things…. first, the women here are so warm and friendly. I feel as though I have known them forever. Susan Favro, http://www.sewmuchsmarter, helped to set up this trip! She is a class act through and through. If you are EVER considering doing anything that involves her, don’t hesitate!!!!!! Second, I can’t believe the number of women in each of the classes. My class in Missoula had around 40 and the two in Spokane had about 50 each. I kept thinking…. do they know who they are taking a class with? It’s just me.
The third thing that blew me away about this trip is I became a public speaker. The first lecture I did was to the Missoula Quilt Guild. There were about 100 people there and I didn’t throw up! My public speaking teacher would be so proud. I was proud of myself as the thought terrified me. But again the women were so incredible!
It was a lot of fun meeting my online friends! Peggy Holt, Keri Brunell (sp?), Charyl Sieler, pam Schenk, Shelly Seiverkropp, Donna James, Jean Shute, Sharon Moorhead and more.
They were such a talented bunch of ladies! Here are some pictures.
See what I mean! Talented! I am off to the guild meeting and to do a trunk show, then home tomorrow. Fun Trip!
