AR T.O.G.A. 2015

I went to the first AR T.O.G.A this past weekend, in Mena, AR.  Cheryl from Cheryl's Teapots 2 Quilting blog was there, it was great getting to know her better!
 These are the t-shirts we bought, I just love them!  A toga is for people who use hand cranks and treadles to do their sewing.  Think quilt retreat with an emphasis on machines.
Cheryl did a great demo on how to make a hexie flower tape measure.  You can see a better picture of it on her blog.
There were not many people there, but we still had some great machines and demos.

There were a couple of sewing mats, Margaret told me how she made hers.  I want to make myself one.

I love this yo-yo quilt I saw at local shop.
Several of us rented a house for the weekend and here is a sunrise I saw.
It was a lot of fun and I still have a couple of more blog posts to write that I will share later!

How wonderful for you all!
And to be able to rent a house for the weekend must be wonderful!
Great sunrise!

Looks like you had a grand time. I see one of the ladies had an apron on - I assume it was to keep the threads off her clothes but I always get a laugh out of my thread covered clothes so I'm not sure that I would steal her idea...
