  • Hi Tom,

    Thanks for friending me and making me feel welcome! I stumbled across this site and it looks great! I'm a newbie with shows. Applied for a lot of 1 day shows close to my area in South Bend and Michigan and am waiting anxiously for my letter of acceptance...:-)
    I'm a lampworker!
