Star Spangled Indeed

Why attend a Seminar?

For the class. For the teacher. For the project.

Why do I love to attend? For the people.

I've had many wonderful encounters over the past few days.

First, the staff at the hotel have been supremely helpful and always cheerful.

Second, the people you meet here once a year who remember you and ask if you've finished "that" class. (Frequent answer:  sorry, no.)

Third, the people who you see more often than once a year at other stitching functions with whom you share a passion.

Fourth, the people in your chapter whom you see frequently whose support, kindness, talent, and friendship is paramount to your own well-being.

And fifth, your best friend who always has a smile for you when you need it.

It's an addictive experience, these needlework seminars. We'll be talking about Seminar 2017 in Asheville, North Carolina and plotting and planning our fun till we get to the Blue Ridge Rendezvous.
