    Great list Maris, I think I drank more grape juice in those few days then I have in my life. 😉

  4. what a great list, I feel the same way! Will have to go again next year and experience it all over again. Thanks for making it more fun!

    Seriously, what was the deal with the grape juice?? It was so great to meet you at Sewing Summit and hear about your experiences teaching. I definitely feel like we’re kindred spirits.

      I KNOW, right?!?! Too bad we kind of live on opposite sides of the country. I hope we meet up again soon in real person life, and our next meeting will have to include only fermented grape juice! 🙂
