I would like to thank all of you who attended the NAQG conference on Long Island. It was so nice to meet all of you. I hope you came away with new ideas and techniques you can use in your quilling.

I would also like to thank the Long Island Quillers: Georgia Brosnihan, Odessa Cooke, Suzanne Dresch, Janet Hovnanian, Carole Jones, Annemarie Krause, Joann Loh, Kim Loh-Bodor, Helen Luchart, Tina Miller, Yvonne Pineiro, and Annette Tisbo. I could not have taken on this conference without them. It was a wonderful group of women who worked hard to make this conference a success. Janet and Sue were especially generous with their talents and time doing everything from proof reading to assembling the baskets as well as many other activities. Thanks to all of you.

Next, I would like to thank the teachers. We could not do a conference without them. Their time, talents and materials are very much appreciated. We had such a nice variety of classes presented by Alli Bartkowski, Marion Bertaut, Lois Brandt-Weber, Charlotte Canup, Kay Charles, Odessa Cooke, Marianne Fassett, Carol Cancorz, Janet Hovnanian, Maritza Laboy, Joann Loh, Kim Loh-Bodor, Maggie Nakatani, Sue Palmer, Yvonne Pineiro, Sherry Rodehaver, Bobbye Singer, and Betty Tremaine. Alli, Sherry, Betty, Carol, Yvonne, Kay C., Sue Dresch and Provo-Craft are also to be thanked for the Saturday afternoon demos.

And, of course, I want to thank the vendors; Lake City, Not Just Scrap, NAQG, Quilled Creations, The Quilling Shop, and Sherrys Quilling Corner, that took time to be with us on Friday night and Saturday. Last but not least, I want to thank all those who donated items for the raffle. A special thank you is due to Kay Charles who did all the organization of the competition. This is an enormous job not only at the conference but also after the conference when all the fragile pieces must be sent back to participants who could not attend the conference but sent pieces for the competition.

If I have forgotten someone, please accept my apologies. We are looking forward to next year. Hope to see you all again at the 2011 NAQGCON.

Again, many thanks to everyone.
