Registration for QuiltCon 2015 is June 24 (members only). That leaves you with SEVEN days to figure out your schedule! This week we wanted to share some advice from members that attended in 2013.
QuiltCon 2013 was such an amazing time! I generally give anyone who asks two pieces of advice. The first is to not over-schedule yourself! I took two full-day workshops and I felt that was about all I could handle. The workshops are fantastic, but there’s so many other great things going on and people to meet and random encounters to have! I also ended up feeling pretty creatively spent by the end of the second workshop. I was glad for some downtime the third day.
The second piece of advice is to volunteer! I ended up volunteering on a whim, and it was so much fun. QuiltCon is huge and (for me at least) somewhat intimidating to know where to start or how to meet people. By volunteering I was able to meet great people and get a behind-the-scenes peek at things so I had a better idea of what QuiltCon had to offer. Plus the staff and the other volunteers are just awesome people,
and we had a blast together!
Thanks Anne for sharing your thoughts. Working with you as a volunteers was a blast!
