|can you believe she didn't buy this hat?|
as well as Susan Lenart Kazmer (a.k.a "The Rockstar", who was there to teach, and from whom I took 3 days of amazing classes at Bead & Button two years ago) and Baba Paul, whom I met at a workshop with Kate McKinnon in November 2009.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Sally Jean (a.k.a the "Soldering Queen", who posts really cool photos on her blog but doesn't it do it nearly as often as I would prefer)
and Sarah Whitmire of Soul Journaling fame (pictured here with Dawn Close, another new friend, on the left and Sarah's handsome husband whose name I can't remember right now on the right):
I also met the lovely ladies of the Tribe, Charlene Sevier, and the various amazing teachers from whom I took classes, including Janice Berkebile and Stephanie Rubiano
