Wow! The last week has been a whirlwind! Last Thursday, I flew to Chicago with Caroline of Trillium Design in the wee hours of the morning for the first ever SewPro Convention, hosted by Brenda Ratliff of Just a Bit Frayed and Pink Castle Fabrics (affiliate link in sidebar), and Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness What an amazing event!!! We were all there for the same reason - to take our business to the next level, to network with others, to work together because we're all doing what we love, some of us as a second career!
The keynote speakers were Pat Sloan and Tula Pink, both amazing speakers! The teachers were amazing! And what made the whole thing so awesome is that we were able to make connections in such a small venue, with only about 150 attendees. It was an amazing experience, and I'm hoping this will be an annual event! If you have the chance to go, do it!
If you'd like to read more about SewPro, check out the blog post by Suzy Quilts, who also happens to have some pretty awesome stuff on her website, including some pretty cool quilt patterns.
Brenda Ratliff had some of her One Room Schoolhouse charm packs available for those who wanted to make something and blog about it. So, of course, I got a pack! Hold tight for the next post featuring this awesome fabric!
