PR Weekend in Philly

I have every intention of getting a new camera ASAP.  I sorely missed one on my recent trip; first, to record the amazing grandkids; and second, to document my Philadelphia Pattern Review experience.  All I can say at the moment is WhooHoo!  What fun.  Philly is a beautiful (but expensive) city, and the people I met were awesome.  It's so unusual to be with women who also love to sew and LOVE to buy fabric...I had to buy another suitcase to bring my stuff home.  Luckily the last store we went to was Jomar's.  I've never been in a store like that ---a bit like a Big Lots with lots of discounted stuff, including fabrics at ridiculously low prices.  Fortunately in the back of the store I also found cheap suitcases.  All in all I think I bought 18 yards.  I was on a quest to buy pretty fabric for ballroom dance dresses, and I found enough for four dresses.  Meanwhile, when I got back home there were tons of things to do here at home, including more work on the basement, plans for lunches, end-of-season tennis parties, yard work, and Memorial Day plans.  I'll post more on that when I buy a camera.  Any suggestions?

I had a great time in Philly as well- and what a great thought to purchase a new suitcase! I'd buy a Canon. I bought my husband a Nikon for Christmas (and I adore my Nikon DSLR) but I much prefer the picture quality of the Canon in the "point and shoot" type cameras.
