Anyone else going to this one?  It's in Oregon City, OR April 10-12, and features, among others,  Carolann Schmitt, Eileen Trestain of Dating Fabrics, and our very own hostess of this forum, Elizabeth Stewart Clark.   We'll get to inspect and even touch (with white gloves) original fashions and textiles.   Tomorrow is the last day to register without a late fee.

The period covered is quite a bit longer than ours here, 1810-1910, but I'm hoping this workshop will result in less confusion as to what goes with what period.  I'm really looking forward to the workshop, to seeing Carolann again and to finally meeting Elizabeth!

Paula, when you get to, you're going to love her. Maggie's lovely! We startled her Dad, she and I... we're similar enough that he greeted me as her, startled, and said, "You're not my daughter, so you must be Liz!" Cheesy

Its true.  Liz and I look a lot alike.   I've even told her that she gets custody of Isaac should the need arise because he's blonde and lanky enough to fit right in with her two youngest bitties.

I think I can fit Maggie into my largest suitcase if I sit on the lid. I'm not so sure about the 50 lb weight limit.  Wink

I just want to say that this was a truly awesome conference!  The three hours we spent in hands-on examinination of period dresses (carefully, wearing white gloves) were the most intense and most instructive hours I have ever spent.  My group started with Carolann instructing us on 1850s garments and ended with Elizabeth instructing us on 1840s dresses.  I learned so much, and am still trying to absorb it all!

The session with the quilt collection of Eileen Trestain of "Dating Fabrics" was also wonderful.  So were the presentations by Elizabeth and Carolann.

Unfortunately one of the things I learned during a terrifying drive home in the rain last Friday night was that my night vision has really deteriorated in the past year and a quarter (the last time I tried driving more than a very short distance in the dark), so I had to miss the banquet and fashion show Saturday evening in favor of not being a menace to others and myself on the road home.  I'm really sorry to have missed visiting and seeing everyone's dresses!
