ME


...as in Mary Engelbreit Home Companion Workshop in St Louis, MO....What an amazing event that was. I signed up because I was super excited to get a chance to meet someone I admired so much, Mary Engelbreit, but it ended up that I just loved everything! The Chase Park Plaza was amazing. So beautiful, comfortable and friendly. I felt like Elouise at the Plaza in NY. We got to tour Mary's studio and look at all the things I had seen in the magazines up close. There was a wonderful luncheon with chuck full goodie bags. The classes I took were perfect....Kaari Meng from French General, my buddy Charlotte Lyons, Wendy Addison and Kathy Curotto. The seminars were really great too..Sheila Meehan and Margo Tantau. I learned so much and it all really made me ask myself some questions and it turned on a few lights that were getting dim... Sukey was a delight to travel with and we even had a tornado warning...sirens and all!
