Yesterday I volunteered at the Project Linus Conference in Bloomington, Illinois. Chapter coordinators from all over the country came for several days to make plans, learn new skills, get inspired, and help each other out. Mary Balagna and the other coordinators did a magnificent job -- no detail was overlooked, and there were lots of little touches that made everything run smoothly. My friends Marge (in the photo below) and Debbi and I demonstrated Happy Houses blocks, and every attendee had the opportunity to make one and take the pattern home to their chapters. You can find the instructions here.
The event was at a hotel and conference center -- here's one aisle, all set up with booths (before the attendees entered!). There were vendors, too.
It was a long day and I was so tired when I got home, but it was truly a feel-good day and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
