    That’s a busy schedule and we have some overlaps so I’ll be sure to say hello. Based on my last WIA experiences you will probably find that this schedule changes a little while you are there cause you want to hang out after a session for hands on or get caught up in the marketplace in conversation. I firmly believe it is impossible to take it all in in just 3 days and that is how they keep you coming back. Should be a good event.

      Yea and there may be one or two I don’t end up going to…. Just trying to give myself as many options as possible and sign up early. Looking forward to putting some faces to twitter handles. 🙂

      I really want to do most of Friday’s classes.

      My Sat schedule is pretty flexible, the only classes I’m dead set on that day are: Shooting Boards, Japanese Saws, Contemporary Design, & Scraping Planes
