Hi, Everyone —
Sue C and I attended the first timer’s reception tonight. The ANG officers and area reps did speed dating at each table to tell us about the seminar and their particular responsibilities. Also, my name was pulled out of a bag and I won a door prize! By far, the highlight of the event was a spectacular naked biking parade! We were on a mezzanine and had front row seats to this annual Philadelphia event! I don’t think I can post the video on the blog — sorry!
My class called “Asian Collage” with Debbie Steihler started this morning. It’s been a lot of fun and the stitches are unique and interesting. Lots of influence by Jane Zimmerman. Sue Rossi — I met Sue Wardrep and Toni Goetzman — they are both in the Asian Collage class with me. Very nice ladies!
You probably saw the photo of Sue and I scouring the Reading Terminal Market for our lunch. We had yummy sandwiches from an Italian deli and wonderful tea from a booth that specialized in scores of types of tea,
After the first timer’s banquet we met Heidi and went to dinner at a restaurant that some of our seminar colleagues had recommended called Cariboo Cafe. It was about a four block walk from the hotel and was an interesting mix of mostly French cafe cuisine. (I had steak tartare — one of my favorites!)
After I send this post out into cyberspace, I may try to tie off a few of my “tails” from today’s project before I hit the sack.
These are very busy days — I haven’t even found time to visit the store or exhibits.
Looking forward to seeing more NJNA members soon!
