Okay, Who's going to King of Prussia with me? (I'm Back! Post 52)

Recommended Posts

Hi all you CGOA Conference attendees! It's time for a head count of who will be joining Artemis and me at King of Prussia in July. Please send me a PM so I can get a list of loyal C'villers together. I'll post the list on this thread. From now on, we can plan our meeting here.:woo

Thanks to those of you who have PM'd me. As of today we have:

 

Red88

Sparkles

Artemis

AndiM

Roli

 

I'm also assuming that Dodosdesign will attend since they will be in the marketplace with Red88 and Brian. Will there be others of you in the Marketplace? Please let me know!

 

At this point, it appears that most of us will be staying at the Scanticon. I'd welcome any ideas on how we can recognize ourselves. Do we all have Crochetville bags or T-shirts?:think

I'm still toying with the idea of going (I know, I know, some classes are closed already). If I can stay at my friend's in PA, I might go... Roli, I'll PM you if I end up going.

Oh Sakurasaku, we'd love to see you there! I hope that the fashion show and dinner is not sold out. It seems that this will be the highlight of the weekend.:yay

:P I just have to correct myself here. It seems that Red88 and Brian will NOT be in the marketplace. Well, they WILL be in the marketplace but just to shop, not to display fabulous inventory...Sorry Red88!:blush

Just five of us?

I do not have any Crochetville logo stuff. I guess I could get something or is there another way to identify ourselves? I think we could all recognize Roli in a crowd of 1,000 from her cute avatar.

At this point, it looks like only five, although there may be others who haven't responded here. I guess we are the "hard-core" addicts! We could always hold up a sign as they do in airports, "Crochetville Party"! Since I don't know any of you by sight, what do you suggest? Perhaps we should wear a little crocheted flower or something. I'm sure there won't be many of those around!:lol

 

Should we meet somewhere Friday and then again at the fashion show before dinner? :think It would be nice to at least sit at the same table.:yes

I am sooooo excited about this!

 

I was reading Margaret Huber's blog http://journals.aol.com/mhdesigner1/MyHooksandNeedles/

this morning about the things she is preparing for the convention. Another blog was all about it, too. We are really going to see and learn a lot!

 

I'm game for getting together Friday as well as Saturday. I'll be there from Wednesday evening until Sunday morning and have no "ties" to another person, so am game for anything anyone else wants to do.

 

I agree, crocheted flowers are probably not the best identifiers at a crochet convention! If you want me to get a Crochetville bag, I can. Or we could take the Crochetville logo and make ourselves some nametags. I could figure out how to do that, if you want. Are there other ideas?

 

How many days until Convention????

I'd like very much to go - remember seeing the info some months back, but have now forgotten the dates? (13-16 July 06)

 

I'm hoping you don't have to be a CGOA member already to go? (not required, but members attend the show free) keep planning to join, but haven't gotten A Round TUIT yet :loljoined!

 

I'll go check their website for info, meanwhile, save me a place on the team, ok? Thanks, Roli, for starting up this thread!

 

(selecting classes to take - so many things I'd like to learn! gotta figure out how to be in more than one place at a time one of these days..... :lol speaking of being in two places at one time, I'm already registered for a one-day conference at Sandy Cove Ministry and Conference Center in Maryland to see Kay Arthur [Precept Ministries] speak on Sat, 15 July. Wail! how am I going to do both?! :eek)

Joann and Patricia, I hope that you can meet up with us! We'll be sporting those unique and creative name tags that Artemis is making!

 

Artemis, YES! I'd love to see you make us some name tags! I'll PM you with everyone's real name.

 

I've had so little time to be on-line. We've got some real family issues brewing and it's been a bear keeping my head above water. Things should settle down a little after the 1st week of July so that I can get into my "convention mode".:yes

I'm not sure that unique and creative are the right words, but I've got two ideas I'm working on.

 

I PMed Donna to be sure if it is okay to use the Crochetville logo for this, then I'll move ahead and make some samples. I'll photograph them and post them so you can choose which you prefer.

 

Do you think we will have CGOA nametags or badges? I don't want to keep hanging stuff around our necks!

 

Roli: I crocheted up a storm yesterday, so I wore my wrist brace to bed last night. I thought, "Stay on top of this! Think of Roli!" How is your wrist doing?

Gosh! I never thought of that! We'll get "nametag neck syndrome"!

 

I can't wait to see those tags, though. Good thinking about getting official approval.

 

My wrist is still in a brace. Had x-rays, doc saw a strange round spot on bone, had MRI, will be seeing a hand specialist on Tuesday. I believe it's nothing, probably something I've had from birth (unless it's an alien implant). The wrist is actually much better since I've been keeping it in a sling and trying not to use it. We'll see what Tuesday brings.

 

Are we the only ones conversing here? Where's everyone else?:think

Ohhh, I so want to sign up for that class on Overlay crochet (T304C, Thursday all morning) and the follow-on class, Saturday am. But I'm supposed to be at Sandy Cove Conf Ctr in Rising Sun, Maryland (yep, that's a real town in Maryland) on Saturday. What's a girl to do?

 

Hey, thanks Artemis for the nametag effort (and getting the approval; I was worried about using the logo when I first saw the idea, but figured y'all knew what you were doing and didn't need my :2c)

 

What kinds of classes are y'all thinking of signing up for?

Sorry about not following this too closely. Been SUPER busy! The end (beginning) result of all the busy is that starting tomorrow, July 1, I will become a pastor's wife!:D

As for the nametags, you gonna do real names AND C'ville names?:think Just curious.

 

I may have one more person for our table, if you don't mind. I'll find out tonight for sure and let you know.

 

:hug THANKS MEGGA for organizing this!:manyheart

 

PS pplcrochets, I've signed up for Make Your Own Crochet Hook on Sunday morning, and Lily Chin's design class all day on Saturday:c9

What I have designed is not really a nametag, but a pin that just has the Crochetville logo (see above) on it. I think we are going to be given a nametag badge in our registration kits...at least that's the way it looks from photos of previous conventions that I've looked at.

 

There would be room on the pin for you to write in your Crochetville name, if you wanted to.

 

I'm thinking that I could leave the pins at the hotel desk or at the CGOA registration desk for people to pick up when they arrive. Anybody have a different idea of how to get these to people?

 

Two weeks to go!

I'm still trying to resolve my schedule conflict, but the solution is leaning towards Valley Forge :woo that weekend!

Okay, since I haven't had a PM from everyone who is attending, I thought we could at least do the following:

 

Artemis has made name tags that identify all Crochetville attendees. Please PM her so that she can have a name tag ready for you when you arrive.

 

Since our class schedules will vary greatly, meeting anyone during the day may be problematic but if you wear your name tag, we might be able to find each other in the crowd!

 

The dinner and auction is at 6 PM on Saturday evening. Let's meet during the cash bar so that we can all sit together. I hope that we won't already have seats assigned to us!

 

The evening hours of most days will be a good time to hit the MARKETPLACE. Perhaps we can see each other there.:yay :yay :yay

I am green with envy at you ladies off to a crochet shin dig. Can you please tell me, though, where is the King of Prussia??? Sounds like some place out of a novel.

Gosh, I know! Isn't it divine? It is a suburb of Philadelphia. It is very close to Valley Forge where General George Washington and his troops suffered through a brutally cold winter.

 

I'll try to find out how the town got it's name and let you know.

I will be attending Friday through Sunday, and already Pm'd the lovely and talented Artemis for a nametag.

 

I can't make any specific meet-up plans because I have several other appointments (a little work-related schmoozing, mostly) but will keep my eye out for you all.

Here's a brand spanking new list of attendees: :woo

 

Roli

Artemis

AndiM

Red883

MBT

pplCrochets

JPR54

 

As I said previously, Dodos Designs will also be at the marketplace as a vendor.:shop

 

pplcrochets, I completely forgot to congratulate you on your nuptials! Best wishes to both you and your new husband as you begin life together.:manyheart

 

I will be arriving Thursday afternoon and staying at the Scanticon Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. I've signed up for:

 

Symbol Crochet Basics

Just Rectangles Design Series 1A

Just Rectangles Design Series 1B

Shell Game

Dinner and Fashion Show

 

I thought I'd see what other classes were still open if I feel that I have too much free time. I understand that there will be free "learn to knit" classes on an ongoing basis so I was hoping to try my luck there too.

 

Ladies! Be prepared to be photographed because I am bringing my digital camera!:photo
