In love with all things French General? Then you’ll love hearing from Kaari Meng, who’s attending (and leading several workshops!) at Creative Connection. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to connect with her there?

Name: Kaari Meng
Blog/site: FrenchGeneral.com and FrenchGeneral.Blogspot.com
Book: Treasured Notions
Traveling from: Los Angeles, California

What does Creative Connection mean to you?
The Creative Connection is like a one stop creative shop – combining  all of the very best talent the craft world has to offer.  It’s exciting to see it all come together and know that everyone is contributing to make this very special event succeed.

What are you most excited about the event?
I am most excited about meeting the women who are coming from all over the United States to participate in this unique craft concept.  I think it takes a creative soul to venture out and try something new.  We will each take something special away from this event – we will learn new skills, make new friends and know that every creative act is appreciated by someone else – that’s inspiring to me!

What is the best part of being able to connect with other entrepreneurial women?
Every woman has something to teach – which makes us all pretty entrepreneurial! I think the best part of connecting with entrepreneurial women is getting to know someone and learning how they tap into their creativity – how that in turn drives their spirit.

How do you think the event will impact your future plans for business and/or creative growth?
Whenever I attend an event that is filled with creative women, I learn so much more than I expect to learn!  I learn about myself and French General by listening to what others would like to see us do – more books, fabric, kits…it’s always refreshing to hear from women who have been following our journey and would like to suggest new ways to grow our creativity.

What classes and panels are you attending or giving?
I am teaching four jewelry workshops throughout the Event and one fabric tag class during the Handmade Market on Thursday afternoon.

What color are your pajamas (for the pajama party)?
Say What?!  Didn’t know I was going to a pajama party!!
