I’m starting to spend a lot of daydream time thinking about the ANG annual seminar that is coming up in late September/early October. I will be a first time attendee. I’ve attended many other needlework seminars, so it’s not entirely new to me. I have also attended multiple-day needlepoint classes, so I have some notions (pardon the pun) of how I want to organize myself. However, as a first time attendee, I value your ideas of how and what to pack needlework wise. I want to make sure I don’t leave something important at home. That would be distressing! I will be driving, so there will be no issue with space. I also would like to know your comments on what to expect. I’m signed up for one three day class, only. I wanted to enjoy my first experience without feeling overwhelmed. I hope that strategy works! Can’t wait to read your ideas.
I am unable to join the rest of the drivers due to the Jewish holy days, so I will be driving solo. I will be stopping in DC the first night to visit with a friend. Due to some physical issues, I’m not sure I will be able to drive the remainder of the trip in one day or will have to make another stop in North Carolina somewhere. If any of you have driven to Myrtle Beach, do you have favorite towns to explore? I will be going down 95 most of the way.
Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing all of you again once the summer is over.
Myrtle Beach, here I come!
Last year was my first ANG seminar…I hadn’t learned about project safes yet, and didn’t bring anything with me to “contain” my three projects. Well, two of them came in appropriate-sized bags but for the third, I used the laundry bag supplied in the hotel room! In fact, I still have it in case I run out of bags for projects. 🙂
Thanks for the suggestion!
I think 3 days is good – my first was 5 & I was exhausted. The teacher supplies lists that are quite extensive. I don’t know how people fly with all the “stuff”! My husband & I will stop when we get tired of driving &’it’s our first time to Myrtle Beach. So, can’t offer advice on where to stop. Safe travels & enjoy! Melita
Thanks for the suggestions. By the way, I googled the half way point between here and Myrtle Beach. It’s Richmond. 🙂
