First Academy Of Applique A Success
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I have NEVER had so much fun in my life – and all because of you. The first Academy of Applique went off, relatively, without a hitch. I have now had a chance to read, and re-read, the evaluation forms. You were all so gracious with your comments. By far the most well received changes were: 1) including breakfast and lunch with the registration fees; 2) the relaxed atmosphere; and 3) the Taste of Williamsburg for a dinner option. The short lunch programs and evening programs were also a hit! I have always said that the two things appliquers love to do is eat, and stitch.
So, hands down, we will keep this daily schedule for next year. All evening events will be scheduled from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. as this then allows plenty of evening socializing and stitching. Lunches will be “tweaked” a bit next year (per your suggestions) to offer (2) food choices each day. Wasn’t Chef and staff WONDERFUL? And that breakfast buffet – Yummy!
Reviewing your teacher suggestions, Rick and I are busy contacting and contracting the teachers for the Academy of Applique 2016. Thank you again for the beautiful flowers (which are still in full bloom), and the exquisite chatelaine. What great gifts simply for doing what I love. WOW!
Stay tuned, and again . . . THANK YOU for being such a wonderful group of ladies. I am confident that I will see you all again next year. Don’t forget, keep those suggestions coming. After all, this Academy is for YOU!
