Don't want to start a big deal here, just wanted to say that I was at this show last year and several years before and it is one of the best. I didn't say best, I said one of the best in the country.

Lots of nice people, good programs, free stuff, one of the main reasons a person should belong to and participate in local PPFA chapters.

If you are a framer who sets in a shop all by yourself and never attend these regional shows, you are missing out. Texas has an exellent one every year, I'm about to do one in Pittsburgh the middle of this month and I'm sure there are many others. It's a chance to meet framers in your area, see what local distributors there are and what they carry, take some great classes, become a CPF and take a recert class, one of he most informative classes there is. The certification is not what's important, what you learn by participating is.

Just a word to the wise.
