This is just a little quick post about my trip to Ocean City Maryland.
I had a great time there teaching at Salty Yarns annual event
Sara was wonderful to pick me up at 11:45 PM on Thursday. The air flight was not to bad just a bit loud for the layover in Philly trying to watch and hear the presidential debates . When I arrived at the Lankford Hotel my room was so spacious and the bed was like a cloud, it was so comfy.
The next day I slept a little late and then went downstairs to meet people, do some shopping and go for a walk. The food that evening and the reception was great. I also spent some time with the other 2 teachers there for the event, Theresa from Shakespeare Peddler and Belinda from Blue Ribbon Designs . The next day was spent teaching 2 classes with great students and then a little hanging around the living area in the evening where everyone was busy stitching and talking. Sunday morning early I had one more class and then last minute shopping, and I had a nice time in the rocking chairs on the porch with some ladies taking in the last of the view. Then it was time to pack up, get a ride to the airport to go home. The next day I was so tired I slept until 11:00, but it was a great time and I met some pretty nice people. I have never seen so much fiber, floss, charts, and all the extras we can not live without in a stitching shop before. If you are ever in the Ocean City area stop by and say hi to Sara, Mary and Sally (the mom). You will be there a few hours just looking at everything. I also enjoyed the yarn section because I am so into crocheting at the moment so the goody bag I left with was filled with yarn and crochet hooks, I was so excited to check it all out at home. I will never forget my trip to Ocean City and all the great people I met. Here are some photos I have to share. And yes the hurricane is going by there today so pray for everyone that all will be well ,
