Firstly I must thank the committee of the ANG and all the volunteers who arranged such a wonderful event in Philadelphia. This was my first seminar and hopefully it will not be the only one that I am able to attend. Anne and I met lots of fellow stitchers who made us feel very welcome and we swapped stories and laughed lots and lots.
Anne and my first class was with Ro Pace, called Atlantis Rising. Ro was fantastic and I am sure everyone enjoyed the 4 days. Both of us came home with some of the motifs stitched and a bunch of new knowledge to lean on. In fact one of our classmates completed over 2/3rds of the design, a very impressive result indeed.

The second class we took was 2 days with Sue Reed, "Graphic Expressions". This class was full of helpful hints and lots of demonstration time given by Sue. We both came home with a far amount completed on the canvas. Met lots of great stitchers and learned lots.
The Marriott hotel was in a great location and was over the road to the Reading Market. Wow! you could eat at a different stall every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and still not try everything. Personal favourite, roast turkey reuben sandwich on whole wheat and Amish apple pie. Yummmmm.
To all the people that made Seminar special. You know who you are. Thank you, thank you.
More news and photos later when I get over this bad case of jetlag.
Bye for now, Carol
