    I have just returned from Sugar Land Texas where I was on the faculty for the South Central Region EGA Seminar .. and what a great time it was. The theme of the seminar, “Betwitchin’ Stitchin’” was followed to the letter and I can honestly say I was teaching among the witches. I congratulate this committee for their outstanding effort. You could easily find any of the committee members by merely seeking out a witch. I made new friends, learned from my amazingly talented students and connected with an area of my country I had never known. Classes, fundraisers, meals, awards and shopping were all made fun for the stitching fan and a great time was had by all. Houston Teaxs rocks!

    Phone shots from the event are top left: our witchy Dean of Faculty, center: my students work, top right: the promotion of Stitching Gumbo 2014 in Baton Rouge. Bottom left: another parader (I loved these gals) bottom center a committe member hat, bottom right: new friends, and the center is a centerpiece.  So Fun!
