On December 1 and 2, 2007, the first Machik Weekend was held in Washington DC. The aim of the event was to bring the growing community of Machik supporters and partners together for the first time. Events included a welcome dinner - served up with gusto by Board member Rebecca Martin - an open house, brunch and a dinner at the home of Advisory Board member and award-winning architect Travis Price. Thanks to KC Choong, Barbara Schuck, Lorelle Nelson, Carlton Williams, Nadia Khawaja, Anjali Mutucumarana, Chris Walter, Arti Pandey, Damon Luloff and everyone else who traveled from afar to participate. Special thanks to Philippa Hughes, Huang Xiaopo, Elizabeth Tseng, Tim Luccaro and all those who toiled and gave resources and time to help make the weekend possible.
