So now I’m going to QuiltCon.
Okay, so like most of my life, things tend to change at the last minute. I tell you, if you can pin me down for a lunch date, you are winning. So when my quilty friends all asked me last year, “Molli! Are you going to QuiltCon West in February 2016?” I was like, um, I don’t know what I’m doing next week, let alone six months from now. Well, it’s now six months from then, and it looks like I have a very favourable possibility of going to QuiltCon West! Due to a very well-timed work trip in California the week after QuiltCon, I can now stop over in Los Angeles for part (all?) of QuiltCon! So now I’m completely all a flutter, wondering, “What to do? Where to go? What to see? Which lecture is a must, maybe, or a no? What’s even still available? To workshop or not to workshop? Which quilter(s) to stalk? What to eat? What to buy? Who to shag?” Okay, maybe not that last one, but as you can see, there’s a whole lot of questions. Where is the magical quilty travel agent that can just plan all this for me, and I show up and bask in the glory?
Do you have any suggestions for me? I’m actually thinking of flying in on the Friday, so I may not hit the show until the Saturday and Sunday with eyes propped open with toothpicks. But maybe I won’t be able to stay away on Friday afternoon either! As you can see, I printed out the entire 48-page catalogue today and started perusing. It’s like information overload! At the very, very least, I’ll get to see my No Value Does Not Equal Free quilt hanging with other modern quilt brethren. If you see me walking around please introduce yourself as I’ll probably be so overwhelmed by the enormity of it all! I’m a QuiltCon virgin! Are people making name badges, wearing funky hats, sashes, meet and greets? Seriously, what is the skinny on QuiltCon?! Comment me below so I can make sure I’m in the know! Can’t wait to see you all!
