Already home for a week after a great weekend at #fqrlondon and here comes my résumé! The retreat started on Friday 19.7.13 at 13:00 h with the registration at Baden Powell House, at 14:00 h my first class started with Katy. In the morning I still had to work, but after a couple of hours I headed out to the airport. I couldn't make it on time, I already knew it before - I arrived for registration at 15:00h!
Everybody was relaxed and after chatting around with a whole bunch of lovely people I decided to skip my class - I did EPP before and the class was announced for beginners. On Saturday I had two classes - Eraser stamp carving with Tacha...
and Trapunto with Ruth Singer...
Saturday evening there was a big quilt market in the main hall and - surely - I couldn't resist to buy some fabric and stuff!
Sunday morning I had my favorite class - cathedral window sewing with Brioni! It was hard work ironing and concentrate sewing: We were lucky to have the air-condition in the main hall!
Here you can see all my goodies I brought back from London:
It was a great weekend and I know for sure that I will go next year again!!! All in all I had a great time and I liked it even better then last year! Everything was organized neatly - a huge thank you to the FQ Team for the fantastic organisation! Again I met a lot of lovely quilter I already knew from Flickr, swaps and so on. And I promise to have a name badge for next year! I will write more about my classes here on my blog - but maybe not in english, sorry, but writing in english is not rolling off the tounge easily for me. But there is a translate button on my blog if you want to read more.
