For those of you who are new to PR or those of you who have been around a long time and never thought about attending a PR Weekend, i thought I'd pass along my experience.

For 2-3 years after joining PR, I saw the posts about PR weekend and thought it sounded fun but I didn't know anyone so I thought it didn't make sense to go. I bit the bullet in 2011 in went to Chicago without knowing a soul. I have since attended 3 other events and have made some of my dearest friends from the weekends.

So if you are held back because you don't know anyone, put those fears aside. It's a friendly and diverse group that welcomes everyone!!

Here are some boards / links related to prior year trips to give you a glimpse into what goes on at a PR weekend!

Pre-Trip Sewing 2013
PR Weekend SFO 2013
PR Weekend Montreal
There is even a FB group here for 2014 Austin trip.

Link to PR Weekend 2014 Austin message board


If I can answer any questions from past years, don't hesitate to ask!! I hope to meet some new sewing buddies in Austin this year!

I want to go, it is as close as it has ever been, but have already committed to a sewing retreat in Ft. Meyers, FL leaving that weekend.
Oh, darn!

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!

Darn is right!

I'm curious what event you're attending in Ft. Myers? Is it a private event?

we have a home in Bonita Springs (here right now, in fact) and always on the lookout for good sewing events.

Curious, too. I'm in Sarasota. And Austin is just a bit too far right now. My brother lives there so perhaps another year.
