I am in the middle of packing up books and fiber/mixed media art supplies to take out to Columbus, Ohio for the Quilt/Surface Design Symposium. This will be the 5th year that I've been a vendor at that conference. I decided it was time to take a break from the chaos and post an update. It's such a lot of work to get ready. You can see the mess I'm dealing with...
...boxes everywhere. I shipped a couple of boxes of light things, but everything else has to fit into my car. (It's amazing what you can get into a small, hatchback.) Today is my day to make all the final decisions about what to take and get the boxes packed. Tomorrow it all goes into my car. I head out first thing Sunday morning and will drive all day to get to Columbus. Monday is rest and set up and Tuesday the conference begins. If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop by.
The conference is in a new location this year--at the Ramada Plaza Hotel on Sinclair Road. I'll have to learn a new area of Columbus this year.
I've been very busy since my last post, not just getting ready for Q/SDS. One of the most exciting things that happened was The Practical, The Impractical, and The Artrageous Fashion Show during the SOWA Art Walk weekend in Boston. Sonja and I took a bunch of pictures and hope to add a slide show to our web site one day soon. In the meanwhile, here's just one picture to give you a sample. You might recognize the jacket from a previous post.
It was SO exciting to see my jackets in such a professional show.
Well I just looked at the clock and realized I'd better get back to packing.
