Marianne quickly looked through her old e-mails using her iphone and found an old message giving the exact address...and guess what....it wasn't the address that the hotel lady gave us....duh!!!! LOL
Off we went to find the TRUE location and needless to say we didn't find a wonderful parking spot and we arrived later than hoped and ended up getting seats near the back. Oh well....at least we made it in time to purchase her books and have her autograph them...and as long as I held my camera out in the center of the aisle, I could get photos and then look at my camera to see the item! Life is tough being short...sitting in the back....behind tall people!!! :)
Simple words cannot express how exciting, wonderful and inspiring the Bonnie Hunter Quilting Workshop and Trunk Show/Lecture was to all who attended. If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of her lectures or workshops....please do....you won't be disappointed!!!! Just make sure you get the address correct and arrive early to get a front seat!!! LOLOL
I have so many photos and so much information to share that it will take days and several blog posts to hold it all! :)
I'm getting a late start on sharing about the workshop simply because we had terrible storms here in Owego that resulted in the loss of electricity from this past Thursday until Saturday. For some people (like ME) this also meant we had no water.....having a well + no electricity = no water to shower, flush, or anything else!! :) :)
On Monday evening Bonnie Hunter presented a WONDERFUL lecture and pulled out one-by-one the most amazing quilts to show us. She designed and made all of these quilts.

Until the next time...same Bat time, same Bat channel! :) (I bet some of you are too young to know what I'm talking about with this last sentence! LOLOL)
