Anyone else going (I know of a couple of you at least)?

Jan 11-13 in Springfield, MA :

http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/shows/newengland.htm

I am planning on being there SAT (the 12th), and would be nice to run into some fellow LJs like last time around.

so… who’s going?

Edit: change of plans – I will actually be there sunday the 13th

nope…just mailed a few very large packages to Milton. The customer said the market would be good there for my work. I wish you a very profitable, enjoyable experience!

all the LJs should wear something to distinguish themselves… how about a red plaid kilt ;-)

oops… this is a blog and not a forum topic so it doesn’t get a bump… anyway… how about meeting up at noon for a “hello”. Sharon, you are a great organizer… pick a place… maybe to have coffee or something!

^ I just had to get mine re-hemmed. I lost the bottom stich during an altercation with a cross dressed little person. Bummed.

My red plaid kilt has shrunk and is no longer appropriate for public wear!!! Can I get away with a red plaid thong???

oooh… sounds like it’s going to be interesting.

I probably won’t make it there before noon, so maybe something a bit later. I’ll see what’s planned for sunday, and post a suggestion later on

I’ll try to go sunday. Since just about everyone has some kind of smartphone now, would it be a good idea to update this blog on Sunday with a common meeting time and area?
