I attended a couple of lectures, Kim Eichler-Messmer in the morning. It was fascinating to see how her work had changed gear over the years to the point now where she is translating her home dyed fabrics into a commercial fabric collection.
At the end of the day it was Christopher Thompson talking about fabric choices laying a heavy emphasis on fashion trends of which he has advance warning through his day job with Gap. He gets rid of any fabric he hasn't used after a year.

We had made stack and slash nine patches in advance and proceeded to stack and slash some more.

The classroom was very well equipped with a row of mats rulers and cutters at one side and the most wonderful Panasonic cordless irons on the other. I tone of these but cost a LOT . We used Janome 6700 machines and I have my eye on one. It was useful to have my queries answered by the onhand technician.
|Oh those lovely irons|
