San Antonio!

Two weeks from today, I will be on my way traveling to the ATHA Biennial in San Antonio, Texas. It  takes place at the Westin Riverwalk right in the downtown area.  I was teaching in San Antonio last year and had a fabulous time so I can't wait to go back!   
The biennial takes place from Wednesday September 9th through Saturday September 12th.  The vendor area hours are:
2 pm to 5 pm on Wednesday 9/9
8:30 am to 6 pm on Thursday 9/10
8:30 am to 5 pm on Friday 9/11
8:30 to 3 pm on Saturday 9/12
The picture above is a sneak peek of the special pattern I designed for the Biennial.  As you can tell, it is Texas themed, but you can change the flag to look like an American flag and it would fit in with all your patriotic decor.  You can either purchase just the pattern or buy the pattern with a wool kit...all the exact same materials as I used in my rug!  Also on Thursday and Saturday, I will be giving a free demonstration showing my technique of hooking a perfect "flag" star using a #9 cut strip.  It's fun and it's a FREE demo!
Are you going to the ATHA Biennial?  If you are, tell me now what pattern you are looking for and I will have it reserved for you and waiting in our booth.  Easy peasy shopping!
If you have never been to a Biennial, consider attending!  There are classes and workshops and demos, a fabulous rug show, shop the well-stocked vendors, and visit and hook with your friends!  You will leave refreshed and inspired!

There's the Alamo.  The lovely Riverwalk.  The fun Mercado.  But here's one more teaser why you'd really like San Antonio...the San Fernando Cathedral in the downtown area features a fabulous light and sound show right on the face of the cathedral (Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm, 9:30 pm, and 10 pm).  The theme is the history of San Antonio and I highly recommend that you see it!  I liked it so much that I saw it twice...and I'm going to go back to see it again this year too!
