day six: overwhelmed

What a day! From the time the alarm buzzed at 6:30 this morning, it's been go, go, go all day long. The Symposium has been really great. There are just over ninety people, and it is a perfect number -- great for interacting, meeting people, and bonding as a group. Throughout the day, we ran into other rug hookers at the restaurant, at the store, at the other exhibits....and even discovered some are staying at the same place.

The rug hooking community is a pretty small world - familiar faces pop up all over the place wherever you go - maybe someone you meet at a previous workshop, or sat beside at lunch during a school... it is great to be able to reconnect with some of these folks (and meet new ones, too).

Okay, this is taking too long and I am pooped. Suffice it to say that I have already signed up for next year and paid my deposit ;-) It has been fabulous so far, and the best part is there's still another whole day tomorrow!
