ACFW 2015 Genre Dinner

Howdy y'all! Crystal here. I thought y'all might get a kick out of seeing some of the zaniness at the 2015 ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Conference. For the past couple of years, they've hosted a genre dinner, where the writers dress up like one of their characters. Here's some of the fun. You might see some familiar faces. (I ran into some of our former Stitches members.)

So how are y'all having fun this weekend? Do you enjoy dressing up?

  3. We are having our annual revival this week and church Homecoming on Sunday. It is always good to see members who have moved away and to enjoy the fantastic food at the Homecoming dinner. Yes, I will probably 'dress up' that morning because our normal church attire is casual or work appropriate
    Looks like you thoroughly enjoyed yourself at ACFW. Thank you for sharing!

    2. Ha, that does sound weird. Natalie Monk,one of my cps, borrowed the 1870s daydress I made since it fit the era she's writing about. You probably saw her at the convention.
