I love fabric. I will always love fabric, and books and patterns and notions and quilts hanging at the show and all of the hustle and bustle ---
But the best thing by far was meeting people that I’ve known online for a long time!
Or folks that I’d heard of or read about but never dreamed about meeting.
And even better than that was running into people whom I already knew from the other side of the pond and getting to talk about things on THIS side of the pond and wasn’t it wonderful that we were all here together!
This is my first time meeting Lynette Anderson from Australia ---and I am such a huge fan! Delightful to talk to, and I was tickled when she sent me a message asking if I would help her with a photo app for her phone. We learn so much from each other and we learn quickly that no matter what other people think, we are just all small fish in a very big pond trying to make our way.
We are ALL people who basically just love to sew, love to quilt, love fabric and all that goes with it and wanting to share that passion with others!
Look who I ran into!
Katy Jones from I’m a Ginger Monkey!
Marti Michell from Atlanta, Georgia!
Kay Bell from Scotland at the APQS booth!
((Gotta love a guy in a pink gingham shirt!))
The debonair Alex Vironelli!
Mary Koval and my friend Lori’s friend Sue!
Blurry with giggles…Me, Petra Prins and Mary Koval!
There is more to come, so much more to come, but I am running to catch a bus to Heathrow and headed HOME!
