The modern movement in quilting has exploded online and in person. There are retreats, summits, sew downs, and the Modern Quilt Guild’s Quilt Con, so awesome it is only held every other year (so far anyway). I attended the Sewing Summit in 2012 and had a lot of fun. I was disappointed to not be able to attend QuiltCon, but yay I am going to the Fat Quarterly Retreat!
I am super excited! I am also nervous because I don’t know anyone who is attending. I am looking forward to the flickr group becoming more active and the various side events (swaps, plans for sharing finishes, etc.) that are planned. I had roommates when I went to the Sewing Summit (Hi Jessie and Rebeckah!) and loved that experience. I want to have at least one roommate and so the search is on.
