QuiltCon 2015 Preparation

It was about this time two years ago that I wrote a similar post about QuiltCon 2013.  This time around I am still not prepared and am running around trying to get everything pulled together at the last minute.  You would think I've known about this for months...or years.

I do have a lanyard, thanks to Marci.

People on Instagram were talking about trading mini buttons. I wasn't going to participate since I didn't have a proper logo; but in the end I decided to jump in anyway.  If you want to trade, come find me.

And as an added bonus, my Dad cut out several quilty pinwheels and made them into keychains...so I'll have a limited supply of those to hand out to quilty friends too.

What I did want to do was make another bag, I'm thinking another AMH Artist Tote would work. This was the one I made in 2013. Or maybe I'd make the Noodlehead Poolside Tote instead. Yet time is flying by so decisions must be made.

I signed up for two workshops:

  • English Paper Piecing with Katy Jones 714
  • Basic Improvisational Quilting with Quilters of Gee's Bend 515B

I'm pulling together the items I need from the supply lists, although I know that I can certainly pick up most anything I forgot at any one of the vendor booths.

And even if I don't need anything from the vendors, that doesn't mean I won't be strolling the aisles to find stuff I want.

Then there is the standard...what am I going to wear? Should I get a tattoo? Etc.

I know a lot will happen on the fly; it did last year and it will happen again this time around, because you never know who you are going to bump into; but if anyone wants to grab lunch, dinner or just hang out for a while, I'm your girl.  So tell me, are you going to QuiltCon this year?

  5. I am attending for the first time - traveling alone and know absolutely no one. Registered too late to get workshops I wanted so I signed on as a super volunteer - maybe we will run into one another.

  6. "Should I get a tattoo" is a standard question?! Good grief, you quilters are a crazy bunch, aren't you?!
