One of my memories from the Ackworth 2006 symposium was seeing Marjan stitching on her book. She had ample linen and thread with her to begin the project at the symposium. How's that for being prepared? I've seen Marjan stitching not only seated but also standing! No wonder she can get so much done.
Marjan, I'm greatly looking forward to seeing you and other friends from The Sampler Guild when I'm back in England in October 2010 to teach for your guild. You all are terrific stitchers and so much fun to be around. You all keep me "in stitches"! We're going to have a wonderful time!
