The Babel Conference Off the Books was amazing! The presentations that attended were thought-provoking and inspiring, and I really appreciated when the panel had planned a lot of time for discussion.
My paper was on 16th-17th century needlework pattern books and how they were often destroyed in the process of using them. I got lots of supportive comments and heard that I even helped another scholar solve a mystery about the 16th c. editions of Chaucer books she was studying! It was a wonderful group of people in general, and I also enjoyed Toronto. Yay for new friends!
