Glass Craft Regional Conference

Over the weekend just past I had the opportunity to attend the Glass
Craft Conference which was held in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  For the
record, I am a craftsperson who does some commission work and who enjoys
working in glass for the pleasure.

I'd like to turn people on to these conferences.  It was a wonderful
opportunity to learn from some of the masters in our craft (Peter
McGrain, Kay Bain Weiner, Joe Porcelli, Linda Abbott, Stu Goldman to
name just a few....)  The people I met were wonderful, friendly and
really knowledgeable.  It was an opportunity to share ideas and learn
from each other.

There is another conference scheduled for mid-March in Las Vegas. It is
definitely something to consider for vacation (by mid-March those of us
in Northern climes can really appreciate some warm weather!)  I am not
trying to spam....just trying to share a potential resource.  I know
that I came home with some new ideas and creativity rekindled.
