The Rocky Mountain Region Seminar 2011 has come and gone. It was GREAT! For this post I will tell you a bit about the Seminar and the goodies we got. In a later post I will tell you about the class I took. I took lots of pictures so here we go!
I arrived on Wednesday for some Committee Meetings and this was on the hotel's sign out front.
I was also able to pick up my registration packet early and this is what was inside:
Inside was a couple skeins of floss, a measuring tape, a red, white and blue pen, red white and blue star tissue, a sample of neon rays plus, some beads from our two bead store advertisers, hand lotion, some beads, thread and needle threader from our Brazilian Embroidery advertiser; a foothills notepad and a discount coupon from a framer. All this was inside the plastic project bag that included a cool red white and blue beaded zipper pull with charm at the end.
Here is my name tag (with Seminar pin at upper left). I finished it Wednesday night! The ribbon rosette was worn by the Seminar Committee members to let everyone know they were on the planning committee (I was the publicity person).
We had a beautiful center piece at all our meals (two lunches and two banquets). I saved it in the correct orientation, but blogger will not pull it up that way, so for moment we must tilt our heads. Or you can tip your laptop to the side.
We also got some fun favors at our meals and at the start of our classes each day (Friday and Saturday).
Below are the goodies we got on the last day. At left is the inside of the flat ort holder. You put your orts on the white fabric and they stay when you close the book to dispose of later. We got the ort book at the start of class on Saturday. In the red bag is a little booklet of needlework tip compiled by our Seminar Chair which we received at lunch. The star is a beautiful porcelain star with our Seminar Logo that was given at the closing banquet.
Below is what the packets look like unopened.
Below are the fun things we received on the first day of classes. At top is a wool pincushion that was on our lunch setting. To the left of that is a red ort box we got the first day of class and at the bottom is a mending kit which we got at dinner and I will show in more detail next.
Outside of our "Mend & a Fix" kit
Below is the what the inside looks like at first unfold with a little sign telling us what is inside.
Below is the inside - (from left to right): a thread pickier; a fiber hider; counting pins and a tucking stick.
In a few days I will tell you about the fun class I took.
