QuiltCon 2013 Update
Since I just finished my first quilt (↑) I figured I would check out QuiltCon, the international quilting conference that was in Austin this past weekend. I wasn't really sure what to expect, and I was blown away by the number of conference participants, the artistic quality of the quilts on show, and the availability of lectures and hands-on workshops during the weekend. I only went for the quilt show and the vendor show, but next year I'm definitely wanting to go to a workshop or two as well.
Entrance to the quilt and vendor show was only $10, and I picked up more than that much in free fabric and other quilting swag (I know. Is that such a thing?) while I was there. I also spoke to the creator of these fabulous sanity savers, and needless to say, I spent my Sunday afternoon organizing all of my fabric with the ones I'd purchased! All in all it was a great Friday afternoon spent at QuiltCon, and I'll be on the lookout for information to come on QuiltCon 2014!
