I’m the program chair for my local guild and this weekend was my first “duty weekend.” Our guild has a workshop on Friday, a lecture at our Saturday meeting and a workshop on Sunday. My responsibilities on the guild weekends include making sure the instructor gets to the right place at the right time, gets fed, gets help with anything she might need. I decided that for this first one I would not try to take the workshops, too! That was a good decision.
The guild meeting also gave me a chance to work on making powerpoint presentations. I’m not too experienced there, but I made one for our summer program and one to present all of this year’s workshop instructors. I was more nervous about that than anything and they worked just like they were supposed to…whew!!
Our instructor was Sherry Peterson of SLKP Designs.
During class I had time to work on my own stuff so I got a big backlog of paperwork type stuff done. It feels good to be caught up with that.
Chatted with the woman who photographed our quilt show and she sent me some shots of one of my quilts…the quilt I love the most because it’s a beaded piece. So happy to have her good photos!
See what I mean about a mixed media weekend, though. A little bit of everything.
I even had time to work on another sample piece for my upcoming beading class. Almost done…
This has been fun–like a 3 day retreat–and I get to do it 5 times more this year. There is a lot of work that goes into coordinating everything, but our guild has been doing this a long time so the template for how everything works is very well set.
However, when Monday comes, I’ll be glad to get back to my own little studio!
