SAGA National Convention Anaheim 2011

Okay, so we are into the swing of things here in sunny California. The weather has been really warm and every day sunny. The hotel runs a shuttle to Disney and many ladies have visited Downtown Disney. I think more will go today as it is half day classes and market this afternoon.

This has been my first (and maybe only chance) to Blog as I am very busy and do not have Internet access in my room.

Design Show and Show and Share were last night and very well attended. There were some inspiring entries in the Design Show and every entry had a ribbon, many of them blue. The Best in Show is an embroidered piece and spectacular. Congratulations to Rose Yamakawa  who entered this piece. (photo shows the Design Show Judges with Rose's winning entry).

Today is market, so a chance to see and feel those fine fabrics first hand and spend, spend, spend!

Tomorrow after classes everyone will dress up and enjoy banquet and the main event -the raffle baskets. There are so many to choose from and it is hard to know which ones to put your tickets in for. I am sure there will be lots of happy ladies at the end of the evening.

Sunday will see things winding down and people heading home after what has been another great SAGA National Convention. Time to think about saving for next year- Atlanta 2012-Gone Stitchin'

Leaving on a jet plane....

So for the next week I will be busy taking photos, meeting members and having some fun. If I get the chance (and Internet access) I will update the SAGANews Blog and keep you all in the picture so you don't miss out!
