CGOA Conference 2010

I had a wonderful time at the 2010 conference.  I thought I would have enough time for the 18 hours of classes I signed up for but with the Buddy Program being brand new, I was a little rushed.  The program seems to have been a success and people had a good time.  All the work before the event was worth it.  I met so many wonderful people through this experience, and next year will be better.  I won't be reinventing the wheel!  The photo is of some of the Crochet Corsages I made for the new attendees to wear.

I am still getting my head around the good things that happened while I was there.  I am so thrilled to be doing some professional projects!  I didn't think things would happen like this.  I think the mentoring program through the CGOA is a wonderful asset to anyone dreaming of a career in crochet design, or another part of the crochet "industry".  I am spending my first week home doing swatches, sketching, and putting my workroom in order.  I will put together my schedule and get the rest of the admin things finished this week so I can get to work!  WOW!  This is so cool!
