I enjoyed meeting other women who blog and love to make things with their hands. I sat next to Barbara Moore who is a gourd artist from Flippin, Arkansas who blogs at Mo(o)re Gourd Whimsies. Her work is exquisite! Here is a sample of it from her blog header:
It was amazing the goodies we were given to take home. Not much in the way of fabric or yarn (my favorite mediums), but I love the acid-free pens and the scissors!
Here are some of the things I did bring home (I gave twice as much to a woman who puts craft kits together for the cystic fibrosis patients at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. I wish I had given her all of my stuff (well, not the pens and scissors).

These kits would be great fun to do with kids.
I did find some possible quilt inspiration in thumbing through the beading booklet.
