I was teaching four classes and doing some book signings, so I had a really busy week ahead.
The conference was a huge success, and we had lots of fun.
One of the highlights of the Conference was Rita Weiss' induction into the Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame. I was last years inductee, and loved that Rita was chosen. We are two of the remaining members of "The Old Broads Club". Jean being the first inductee and founder of the "club".
Me and one of my favorite people, Barbara Hillery Van Elsen. Not many people know that Barbara is the reason that I am even teaching at conferences. Barbara "met" me on line quite a few years ago. Barbara was then president of the New York City Crochet Guild, and she invited me to teach at their retreat weekend. I was fairly new to the Internet, and even though I had written a few books and designed for magazines, I had only taught locally. I did not even know about guilds, retreats and conferences. Barbara opened doors that I did not even know were there, so a great big "Thank You" to Barbara.
Me in the middle, Randy Berne Cavaliere and husband Tony, having more fun at the conference. Tony was such a good sport, almost always being surrounded by tons of women with hooks and needles in hand.
Much more to come on conference and other October events, but out of time now.
Have a great day.
