Hi, Everyone —
Sue C and I arrived in Philadelphia around 5:00 PM and before we even settled into our room, we hit the ANG registration booth. Lots of goodies. We have decided that we need to make a one page schedule because there are so many activities going on this week — I swear that there is something every night.
So after reading our program cover to cover, we settled in to our room. I think we’ll be very cozy here for the week!
It turns out that there are quite a few restaurants in the area. The Reading Terminal Market was closed, so we didn’t get a chance to scope that out yet. We decided to go to The Melting Pot for dinner — it was literally just across the street.
After dinner, we scoped out the meeting floors and stumbled upon a group in the open stitching area (it’s open 24 hours in case someone has trouble sleeping!). What fun! Jo Ippolito Christensen was sitting with folks from Syracuse, NY; San Diego, CA; Easton, PA; and Mendham, NJ. Someone immediately knew Mendham as “Where Mrs. Stitches is!” They thought I was lucky to live within walking distance — some of these women have to drive an hour for stitching supplies.
Good night all!
Cheers — Rosie
