Modern Woodworking Live?

Fine Woodworking has announced their Fine Woodworking Live event.
FWW is billing it as:

Your chance to enjoy the company of other passionate craftspeople as you learn from the experts whose work you've seen in our pages. Live demonstrations and hands-on workshops are at the heart of this limited-attendance event.This three-day conference will give you the opportunity to enjoy a range of sessions created specifically for this event. Friday and Saturday will each start with a general session, followed by three complete small-group sessions on topics by each expert. On Sunday, a range of additional sessions will be offered for specific concentrations on detailed areas of interest.
It's being held in New Paltz, NY on August 2nd through the 5th. New Paltz is an upstate New York college town about 2 hours north of New York City (1 hours south of Albany). It should be fairly easy to ready for all of New England, much of the middle Atlantic and beyond. As Modern Woodworkers, I think we should try to attend and even organize our own dinner or other event during the conference. Hanging out at events like this are what the Modern Woodworkers Association is all about.

As we used to say in high school; Nothing is shinny in New Platz, except your future.

  1. Dang! Yet another woodworking event too far from home. Sounds pretty cool though.
