Those big bags presented a major challenge! But nothing this intrepid traveller couldn’t cope with… When in doubt I have learned to get my wallet out and pay someone so I got a cab to the Convention Center on Thursday morning. Yes, it’s only a few blocks but I decided it would be better to pay a few dollars than break the wheels on my suitcase and need to buy a new one in a strange town. The taxi driver didn’t seem over happy to get such a short ride but I hope he was cheerier after I had added a tip to the fare and smiled so very sweetly…
I found my way around the center and into my morning’s classroom. A room of sewing machines all set up gives such a sense of possibilities. These were Baby Lock Arias, all set up by Debbie and ready to go.
Thursday morning was Wrapped in Scraps and my students started coming in and unpacking while I got my table sorted. Samples, clothesline, thread, my favorite Clover ball point awl, thread strips, hand outs… Yes, I had them all. Plus, postcards, pins and just a few DVDs!!
Nine on the dot. After a quick demo we wrapped our clothesline and started with a nice flat base.
It didn’t take long and we were turning the sides.
Remember to smile! (makes for a much more flattering photograph)
Vicki did a great job!
Just bring the end in for a smooth finish…
And we were done. Just like that. Three hours flies by when you are having fun.
