I just found this post. I'm so glad to hear the SOX Festivals have come back.  
Is there a link where I can enter my info to get notified when events are coming up for 2018 festivals?

Re: Spirit of Cross Stitch Festival
The posts about SOXS are 20 years old (1997). I doubt they will ever come back.  

Re: Spirit of Cross Stitch Festival
I've been informed I'm wrong about SOXS; however, I couldn't find anything for an upcoming SOXS event.  I'm sorry.  

I was lucky enough to attend one SOXS, in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1998. Now I do needlepoint, too, and have attended several ANG seminars and just spent a weekend in Hershey, PA, for an ANG Encore! event.

I miss the SOXS tourneys in Des Moines.  We went every year that they were held.  I do wish they would return but I know I am longing for what is now history.

e held.  I do wish they would return but I know I am longing for what is no
w history.

I leave next Saturday for a cruise out of Southampton, England, (to Hamburg
, Oslo, and Bruges) with a group of stitchers - led by Jean Farish, who fou
nded the SOXS festival.  I will be taking a class with Maureen Appleton of  
The Heart's Content; she's famous for over one projects.  My 72 year old ey
es will probably not be happy with me, but I did order some stronger reader
s.  LOL

I wished I could have joined you, I am waiting to see a specialist for  
my eyes, having problems with close work. It is said that my eyelids are  
drooping and obscuring my vision. Could be having plastic surgery on the  
NHS.

Thanks for those kind words it makes me feel easier about it since they  
do not put you to sleep to do it, just local.

My mom and 2 of my sisters have had that done, too.  I told Mom her eyes reminded me of Raggedy Ann right after she'd had the surgery, or like a little kid had drawn eyelashes on her. LOL!

Now you can't even tell any of them had anything done.  I think I'm going to need it done sometime in the future, too...seems to be a family trait.

Nice to see some action on the ng again!
