The convention in Iowa was wonderful! Six days spent with other lacers from all over the world and across the U.S.A. is a wonderfully exhausting, exciting, exhilarating and fun adventure.
Once I got settled into my room, I returned to the lobby to look for friends from around the country who had arrived. It was so nice to see teachers from classes I had taken as well as friends I so rarely get to see.
On Monday night we enjoy a lovely dinner in the ball room to welcome all the conventioneers. Karen Thompson joined us at our table along with other friends from earlier conventions.
Though the dinner was wonderful, everyone really wanted to get into the main event, the vendors room. Time to shop, shop, shop for all things lace! Books, threads, bobbins (one vendor had bobbins made from a 3-D machine-fascinating!), vintage lace, pillows, pillow cases, patterns as too much more than I can recall
Next to the vendors room was the lace display room with the most amazing collection of lace on display for the attendees to examine.
That's all for today. More tomorrow.
