…you make a new friend.
My friend Nancy Graham, the talented woman who made the original cover for The Road Unsalted, and I drove down to Lowell, Massachusetts to be part of the teacher presentation day at the New England Quilt Museum.
It works like speed dating. Each of the teacher/presenters has three minutes to tell a gathering of guild reps what you do. Then after everyone is done, you have the opportunity to talk one-on-one and book a program or find out more information or pick up all sorts of marketing stuff.
I especially like the chance to hang out with other presenters, see what other folks are doing, and just get an energy charge from the assembly.
It was a long day but it was a good day. I already have one booking and hope for others. I also discovered some folks that I would love to have visit my own guild.
Yep, new friends. You can’t beat it.
