Registration for QuiltCon 2015 is June 24 (members only). Have you figured out your schedule?! This week we wanted to share advice from members that attended in 2013. You can read Anne’s post here, and Becca’s post here.
The next tips come from Christa Watson who is one of our very active Individual MQG members.
Hi all! I have a couple of tips to share from my awesome experience at QuiltCon in 2013!!
First of all, don’t be afraid to go up and introduce yourself in person to people you’ve met online, and be open when people do the same to you :-). I did that all weekend and solidified so many new friendships by the end of the show!
Katie Blakesley, Christa Watson, Faith Jones, Holly DeGroot and Lee Heinrich hanging out and having an outside dinner at QuiltCon 2013. This was the first time I met them all in person.
Second, when you take pictures of quilts to share on your blog with the folks who couldn’t be there, take a picture of the info card that goes along with each quilt. That way you can give proper attribution when you are writing about it later. I usually take a picture of the quilt first and then the information card next, so they are in order on my camera.
I can’t wait until February, 2015 to do it all over again!
Info card from Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s & Lisa Sipes’ Best of Show quilt. It was handy to have it right there when writing up a blog post later!
Thanks Christa for those great tips!
