Tamara - we load in on Thursday night, I hate same day load ins and this is such a long show that I am just dead tired by the end of it. Sorry, we've never loaded in early the morning, the crowd starts pretty slow on Friday morning.

Tamara - haven't heard anything about the Gift show. Sue Coccia might be a better person to ask since we don't participate in the gift show and to be honest, by November we do not plan to be living here in the Seattle area any more.

So pleased that the shows were interesting to you, Tamara. I like putting them together and they are always a surprise to me, what I learn talking to the others. Yes, you work alone in your studio, then these can keep you company, and then if you need a little more companionship you can come to this site and interact with even more people. It helps the balance. Welcome.
