Conference Planning: What I'm doing today
The Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester, NH, that features the CGOA national conference (previously referred to as "Chain Link") is next week! I've actually been planning for this conference for MONTHS. I've been creating my handouts for my session on "The Business of Crochet" that I will teach at the Professional Development Day (Wednesday). I've long since completed my paperwork for my Fashion Show Entry and my Design Contest entry. I've long since registered for as many classes as I can fit into my schedule. (When I'm there, I want to squeeze every minute of learning and fun out of the event that I can. I don't want to waste any opportunities!).
Today I shipped my "class" materials to the hotel. Hopefully it will be there waiting for me when I arrive and it will be less to have to carry on the plane. The plan is to then ship it home too!
Today I'm also working on three major projects for deadlines that hopefully I can mail before I leave.
Tentatively, I'm planning to "meet up" with my readers on Friday around lunchtime. If you are coming to the conference, visit this thread on Ravelry to see the details for the meet up.
One of the classes I'm going to take asks for us to use crochet thread. Uh-oh. I'm not much of a threadie. I'll bring thread though and the right hook, but I'm also bringing some worsted weight yarn and an "I" hook and beg the instructor's indulgence if thread doesn't work out if I can learn on something big enough to hold!
