I really didn't know what to expect. The event was held in a super cool (and haunted!) historic hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. I had stayed there once before last year so I was excited to return to spend more time. I opted to make a little vacay out of it and not have a roommate which was SO nice. Of course, I was given a room on the infamous haunted floor but never saw a thing. Although, the last night, I swear I felt something 'sit' on the end of my bed more than once. I just kept those peepers shut tight! Ha! The actual retreat was held in a gigantic ballroom where everyone had their own workstation. Machines were provided, if needed, but it seemed most traveled with their own. I brought both my sewing machine and serger with the intention of playing with some of the machines they had provided but ended up only using my own. Glad I had brought them!
So thanks to the *hilarious* ladies who made this weekend possible, to the teachers who were so patient with this non-precise sewer, and to the gals who stayed up late with me to make!
