Ooooo! I hope there will be post-event pictures for those of us not in Chicago!!!

Daniel Robbin

Oh, darn! I live just 200 feet from the Blue Buddha Boutique and I'm ashamed that I can't go. It sounds like a real treat and I hope that you fill all the spots!

Jowana

Post event pics would be great and a video of the workshop would be awesome!!!!

Jane B.

I agree with Jowana! Set up a video camera with a good microphone and just video tape the whole workshop. Better yet LIVE STREAM it and we can all join you from afar. Oh, I wish I lived a quick drive from Chicago. It sounds like a totally fun event. Good luck!

Deborah

A written version to refer back to would be awesome as well. I would pay to have all of your mail art knowledge, hints and tips all wrapped up in a manual. Throw in some goodies you mentioned having in the class and it would make a great gift too! Or make it a "members only" get the goodies with the manual. Join LWA and get some extra goodies to get you started! Wish I could be there!

Kathy Zadrozny

Deborah, This is a great idea and is definitely something we have in the works!

Kathy Zadrozny

Jane B. & Jowana,

We would love to do a LiveStream of the class, but neither of us are comfortable enough with the technology to do that right at the moment. Not to mention the cost of a good camera and microphone (or hiring someone to do it). I hope that by next year LiveStreams will be something we can do. For right now, it will have to be in-person events!

Reg

Man, I wish there were more events in Los Angeles!! This sounds like so much fun—can't wait to see photos!
