How long before Convention?!

How long before SAGA National Convention 2010 in Norfolk, Virginia? Let me tell you-eight weeks-yes 8 weeks and are you ready?

  • Registered for classes?
  • Hotel room booked?
  • Travel arrangements finalized?
  • Class requirements located?
  • Lists for things you need to take made?
  • Lists for those staying home made?
  • Design Show entry form submitted?
  • Sewing machine rental reserved?
  • Raffle basket donation finalized?
  • Getting excited?

Okay, so you have eight weeks, but what with getting the children ready to go back to school and the young adults to get back to college and all the other things that life throws your way, that eight weeks will soon be up. So perhaps it is a good thing I blogged this timely reminder? Maybe you can start to get things in order and be ready for the start of another SAGA Convention.

So, if you are entering Design Show, your entry form must be postmarked no later than August 1 and sent to the SAGA P.O. Box (address on website and in SAGANews).

If you want to rent a sewing machine, please call Nancy's Calico Patch in Newport News, Virginia (767-596-7397) before September 10.

Reserve your hotel room at the Marriott Norfolk Waterside before August 18 to receive the guaranteed SAGA room rate (800-874-0264).

You will find the requirements for your classes listed in the Convention brochure and don't forget the all important basic sewing supplies.

If you are sending a raffle basket, please use UPS or FedEx only and send it to Sharon Whitfield (address in Convention brochure and on page 3 of SAGANews) before September 10.

As I said before are you getting excited? I hope so and I look forward to seeing you soon (well in eight weeks)!
