October Woodworking in America Registration is Open
Registration for the October 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Woodworking in America Hand Tools and Techniques conference in scenic Valley Forge, PA is now open. By now y’all have probably already learned this through the grapevine but I am going to add my two cents.
A lot of the criticisms from last year were that the classes were too short to cover the material and there were so many choices, you couldn’t help but feel you were missing out on something. Also there was a lot of wishing for more hands on clinics. Well it appears the WIA staff was listening because like the Design conference in August, the class offerings are such that everyone will get a chance to attend every class. Moreover, there are a lot more hands on clinics. Finally, it looks like the suject matter has been tightened up to focus on more specific elements and hopefully allowing a more comprehensive look at each topic in the short time alotted.
I for one will be at this event and I am looking forward to rubbing elbows with some big names and a lot of “friends I have never met” from the blogosphere and woodworking online community.
A word of warning, registration is open now and the conference filled up really quickly last year so get off the fence at head over to the site and get signed up!
