It took a few days to come to terms with what we had done. With the low Canadian dollar, it proved to be an expensive weekend, but we were excited about the teachers for the weekend: Monica Solorio-Snow, Penny Layman, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Elizabeth Hartman, Violet Craft, and Carolyn Friedlander. Who could resist???
We headed out on a Thursday, leaving home at 3:00 a.m. for a 5:30 a.m. flight. Unfortunately, we were delayed in Toronto for 2.5 hours. Thanks for cutting into our shopping time Air Canada. So instead of going straight to the hotel, we had the driver take us to Pink Castle Fabrics, the host for Glamp Stitchalot.
First fabric purchase...modest half-yard cuts, with one yard of the wonderful orange.
We received a wonderful swag bag...an orange bag!! Goodies included two charm packs, a spool of Aurifil thread, a magazine, and an event crest.
There was an optional pouch swap. I received this awesome orange pouch from Elaine @ Messy Goat. She also included a tiny pouch. This was a great orange weekend for me.
There was a pop-up shop on site, so a visit was in order. Some more half-yard cuts and a mini charm pack.
Sadly because of the flight delay, a busy class schedule, and a Sunday flight that left before the malls opened, we didn't have a chance to sightsee, go shopping, or visit the Girl Scout shop. Perhaps another Glamp Stitchalot adventure is in our future.......hmmmm........
Stay tuned for details about the blocks I made during the classes. Head over to see what Jenn and Julia had to say about the weekend.
