The Northwest Trip!

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!

  1. I feel honored to be in your class. This weekend has just been a blast. I just have one question for you. Was it your hotel room the police showed up at to breakup the wild party last night ?? LOL. Just kidding….. Pam

    • It was great meeting you! I am glad you had a good time. Maybe it would have been my hotel room if you had been around. You look like you could get into some trouble. 😉

  2. Thanks for sharing all the great ideas for quilting from your classes! Wish I could attend!!! I think I need to make a couple of test quilts and try some of them. A couple of these really appealed to me! Looks like both you and your students had a great time 🙂
