Update -- I can't go.
I was so excited, but I got an email saying my instructor had taken a bad fall and was unable to teach. At this late of a date, there wasn't a class left that I felt like taking, so after a long talk with my husband, I canceled my trip.
"But you could shop!" you say.
Yes, yes I could.
But I decided to save that money and now I'm going to go to Bead and Button next year!
So --- who is planning on going??? I'd still love to meet people there!
