It has been about 24 hours since I returned home from QuiltCon, and there is still a LOT for me to process and think about and share with regard to my experience this year.
First things first, I focused on connecting with some of the fantastic people I met – following on Instagram, sending emails, and generally trying to organize my thoughts a bit.
Secondly, I focused on offloading all the images off of my camera. This year I focused on taking high resolution photos with my camera instead of posting to Instagram. Admittedly, I did a bit of Instagram posting, but even though I would be giving attribution to the person who made the quilt, I was a bit uncomfortable sharing the quilts in that format. Side note: huge thank you to the MQG staff for adding instagram handles to the signage for this year’s QuiltCon. Photo attributions were so much better, and it is clearly in large part to that addition.
So, now that those high priority (at least in my mind) tasks have been completed, I get to focus on my next priority. Sharing the swag! The amount of items that I received this year far exceeds my needs, so I have put together (2) swag bag giveaways to my readers who were not able to attend QuiltCon this year. Due to my limited resources, I am limiting the prizes to be shipped withing the US. I do apologize to my international readers, but hang tight, because I will have another giveaway that is international inclusive coming up soon!
Swag Bag 1 includes the tote from this year, and Swag Bag 2 includes a tote from a previous QuiltCon (I cannot remember if I got it in 2013 or 2015). There are mini charm packs, samples of Soak, thread, patterns, and a planner (swag bag 1) or grid paper notebook (swag bag 2).
