NAQGCON 2010 was amazing! I would like to send a big “Thank You” to Kay Shockley and her Long Island Quillers (Anne Marie, Annette, Carole, Georgia, Helen, Janet, Joann, Kim, Odessa, Suzanne, Tina, and Yvonne) for all of their hard work. It took so much time, effort, and creativity to pull together an event like that and I want them to know how much it was appreciated.
It was so nice to be able to reconnect with some old friends and meet many new ones. To have so much quilling talent gathered into one room was so inspiring. We had classes, demonstrations, and make & takes, not to mention the wonderful quilling submitted for the competition and brought by others to share. It was truly quilling eye candy at its finest. I couldn’t help but visit the vendor booths and picked up some new papers, tools, and watercolor sparklers to color my designs. I learned so much and just can’t wait to share it with you.

Speaking of sharing, the class I taught on the Stencil Sailboat ATC was well received and I was asked by Caroline Mach, Editor of the Quill America newsletter, to send the pattern and instructions for publication in the summer issue. And I thought, since I was going to be sharing it with my fellow NAQG members, why not share it with my own newsletter subscribers, too?
So, be on the lookout for next The Art of Quilling Newsletter to hit your e-mailbox next week. And if you haven’t signed up yet, there is still time. Just fill in the form in the upper right-hand corner of the blog.
