More IOLI convention
I started out with the intention of taking lots of photos during the week…I think somewhere after Monday I fell behind on that goal!
Here are some of the fabulous drawing prizes we had. The crazy quilt was absolutely beautiful with pieces of lace from all of us, including the convention logo piece that Janice Blair designed. There were door prize drawings at all the meal gatherings and some of the most special pieces were saved for the banquet on Friday evening.
Monday evening was the Teacher Showcase. This is a great time to meet all the teachers, see their work, and talk with them. As organizers it was extremely helpful a couple of years ago when we were in the planning stages. Many of them teach various techniques. Click on the photos for a larger more detailed view.
One of the fun events was the Tatting Olympics. There were several events – team relay tatting, tatting while walking backwards, two-person tatting (one working the right hand and the other working the left hand), team crossword puzzle, tatting with a bag on your head (or blindfolded). I was glad to take 3rd place in the tatting while walking backward!
