Old Friends, New Friends

The best part about Stitch-Con was visiting with old friends and meeting new friends.

On Thursday, I introduced myself to Brenda from Handworkmaniac.  I wanted to tell her a story about a kindness that was done for me 10 years ago when I was in Salt Lake City for work.  Some stitchers in Salt Lake offered to take me to Shepherd’s Bush.  You can read the entire story here:

Imagine my surprise when Brenda said, “I was there!”  Here’s our picture 10 years ago at Shepherd’s Bush.

And here we are at Stitch-Con.

I also met a new friend at Stitch-Con, her name is Jaffe and she is a friend of one of my stitchy buds in Indy.  It almost seemed like I was stalking her because I had a picture of her on my phone (which I used to find her).  It made for quite a story!

Last but not least, we also hooked up with long time friend Polly.  She had the good fortune of coming to Stitch-Con last year and promised us we would have fun (she was so right!). Our selfie seemed more like one of those photo booth shoots - LOL.

The weekend was a blast and we have many fond memories.  Until next year!
