Good Bye

As I write this people are having breakfast, packing up their things or heading to their final lecture or class.  NC Symposium 2010 is almost over.

The final night of Symposium was the Iron Quilter  event.  It was crazy!!
The audience wore chef hats.

The judges were Elin Waterston, David Taylor and Laura Wasilowski.

The iron quilter contestants were Karen Stone and Robbi Joy Eklow.

The other teachers had a front row seat.

The atmosphere in  "kitchen stadium" was electric.  The iron quilters were up  all kinds of hi jinks....silly string and whipped cream!!  The judges turned out to be comedians. It was fun and crazy and let's just say that "What happens at Iron Quilter stays at Iron Quilter"

From all of the Symposium committee members here in Charlotte, we want to say thanks to all of you for coming to our Symposium.  We hope you enjoyed yourself and will come back to visit our beautiful city soon.

Happy quilting!

Machine and Supply Check

Don’t want to tote your sewing gear back and forth between the
dorm and the Academic Center?

Then perhaps you would like to leave your belongings in the  Academic Center before or after class, including overnight, in a secured CHECKROOM located on each workshop floor. Similar to a “coat-check,” you may leave your items and retrieve them at a later time by returning the check ticket provided.

These rooms will be open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and from 8:00 am to 9:00 am Sunday. All materials must be picked up from this checkroom before 9:00 am Sunday, June 6.

Someone asked a question about the beds. They are regular twin size.

Happy qilting. see oyu soon!

Sheets Towels Pillows

Just a reminder.....bring your own sheets blankets towels and pillow.

 All that is provided is toilet paper.....These are college dorm rooms.


We don't want our parking lot to look like this .......

So I have a few things that are important for you to know

We have been able to lease a nearby parking deck.The parking deck is the best option for full time boarding students. It’s so close to where you will go in to class.  You can leave your class supplies in your car until Friday morning and pick them up on the way to class. The deck has a security card and the lights are motion sensitive – there’s always light, but it goes to bright when you get close, so you’ll feel like a star being followed by a spot light as you walk thru the deck.

The deck costs $1 per 20 minutes, with a max of $10. If you drive in Thursday and don’t leave the deck until Sunday, it’s still only a max of $10 – that’s $2.50 per day. The first 100 cars with full-time boarding students will be given a voucher to park in the deck for free.

The parking lot where registration is, will only fit a few cars (like 30)   So when you arrive we will have people there to greet you. You will to drop off all your stuff  and we will keep it secure while you go park and then come back and check in.

Click here for more information about parking.

See you in a couple of days.
Happy quilting!

Getting Our Rooms Ready

Yesterday was check-out at Johnson & Wales University. Students were showing their parents around campus, saying goodbye to friends, carrying boxes, students and parents were loading up their cars to head home for the summer – and to make room for us!!

We talked to the team at JWU Residential Life and they were already making plans to get the rooms ready for our event.

See you soon and happy quilting

Getting ReadyTo Roll Out The Red Carpet

Good morning quilting friends.  Sorry I haven't posted lately.  I've gone back to work full time and I'm finding it a challenge to balance everything else in my life!  I am in real estate so if you know someone who wants to buy or sell a home, I'd love to help.

Here in Charlotte we are excitedly working to get all the last minute details organized for our Symposium. A few of us are meeting this morning to get the final details "ironed " out for the Saturday night event, which is going to be a lot of fun.

We want all of you to have a wonderful time here in Charlotte and plan to "roll out the red carpet" while you are here.

Johnson and Wales is in the city. There are lots of restaurants  nearby and the center of uptown is just minutes away, an easy and safe walk from the campus.  If you've never been to Charlotte before I know you will enjoy it.
Happy quilting and we'll see you soon!
