Glamp Stitchalot 2015

I had the pleasure of attending Glamp Stitchalot this past weekend.  
It was held in the town where I work and I only live about 30 minutes away.  
I stayed at the hotel for the weekend anyway so that I would have the total experience.  
Thursday I got to meet my FB friend Traci and some of her friends.  
We took a drive to Pink Castle Fabrics together.  
I picked up some of Violet Craft's amazing antlered cat fabric.  

At registration we received these pouches and lots of goodies!

I got to meet Tula Pink.  Seriously, this made my entire weekend.  
Who am I kidding, it made my whole year! 
 She was just a nice in person as you would think she should be too, which was great!

Brenda (PCF) was super excited about the chocolate fountain.  
(Check out Violet Craft just chillin')

Jeni Baker made this version of the quilt.  Each instructor made a center and a border.  
We got to choose which we wanted to use. 
 I made the Star  that Jeni had made.  Jeni herself was just adorable.  
She was so sweet and nice. 

These were 2 of the blocks I made in the Alison Glass portion of the class.  
She was a very good teacher. She focused on the many options we had using this block. 
 It was a fun block to play with.

I had Tula sign a few things. = )

Violet Craft did a paper pieced center and borders. 
 I fell in love with the bunny from her Forest Abstraction quilt.

The center was called True North and it was fabulous!

Violet had some great tips and it was fun getting to know her a little bit too.

Katy Jones was teaching Hexies.  Look at her and her doppleganger!

I did get a pic of Sarah teaching another section too.  She taught needle turn applique.

I was seated 2 down from my friend @Hexicat and didn't know it at first.  

I got to meet my FB friend, Traci, in real life and look...she can change water into wine!

Jeni took this selfie of us.  Isn't she adorable??

I spent some time talking with Alison Glass on Saturday night.  
She had a lot of great suggestions about breaking into the pattern area and as you can see, 
she was super friendly!  

All in all this was a wonderful experience.  
There were a few glitches and probably some no small amount of stress for the organizing staff, 
but it was a great time!  
If you get an opportunity to travel to Ann Arbor for the next Glamp in June you should totally go.  

I was completely exhausted by the time I got home on Sunday, but I did manage to put everything away and even did a little sewing.

What an amazing weekend!!
