Any interest in video?

I ordered Jeanelle Dech's video on her "Reverse Pin" method - this is her own, privately produced work, not a tape of a Conference class. Assuming it arrives in time, is anyone interested in watching it at the Summit? Assuming we can find a DVD player, that is.

Hmm... that's a lot of assumptions. Anyway, should I bring it? Anyone interested?

Technically, the deadline for reserving a room at the 2006 Slipcover Summit hotel WAS yesterday; HOWEVER, I just learned they WILL accept non-refundable reservations until Sunday, May 21st.

I'm reserved! I'M COMING!!! Hmm... now about those other minor details, like airfare and classes...

Dede (very, VERY excited) :)

The Slipcover Network Forum:

This is just a little blog to say "Hi". I guess it is because I'd rather chat out loud than write I don't get around to this (or any) forum very much. Anyhow, I am looking forward to seeing everyone who gets to the Summit---and I'll miss all of you who don't.

it's so quiet over here .....

I have a " new best friend " Dagmar. She took one look at me and decided this was true, so I am just repeating what she said.

It is uncanny that I meet a graphic artist interested in learning how to make slipcovers and eager to hear every one of my over~everyone's~heads verbal explanations about how my mind processes slipcovers.

It is like she looked at me and knew. Get this: she illustrates on paper exams car engine and car workings to test auto mechanics to certify them. Talk about tedious and not in ones' immediate experience.

So, Dagmar took my furniture paper dolls and is making them into, well paper dolls. We are going to have an exciting, relaxing time at the Summit, and you will be sorry you missed the party if you don't come....

here at Vicky's

in Smithfield Virginia taking a couple days away from my basement shackles, having coffee and girl chat. Vicky is asking if there's anyone in the Norfolk area that makes slipcovers ? A couple obvious names came to my mind, but I wondered if there are any lurkers who could come have some fun with us ? Today we are doing a double on half wing chair and measuring a four cushion loveseat. Vicky owns Sew Crazy on main street in Smithfield. E mail me at if so...

Attending the Summit

Hey Dede you are coming after all????

Just got back form Chicago, and did have my laptop with me as it died at the first of the year????

We will help all get to where they need to go. Don't worry about that.....

We will ask for arrival info etc... We have a commitee to do just that.

The big question do you have a room????? The dealine is quick approaching for that?
