I’m getting ready for the SNAg conference in Savannah ( my pins are
almost finished). What about you? And what about an Orchid dinner? Or
maybe just an informal gathering around the bar? It seems Thursday
night is still open. Any suggestions?
(in Belgium but looking forward to see spring in the South)
It sure would be nice to get together with other Orchid folks at
SNAG! I guess it’s too late for someone local to set up a usual kind
of dinner (all pre-arranged & all), but doesn’t anybody want to pick
a day, a time and a place for us to meet for lunch, or dessert, or
And no the infamous Food Channel place that is probably on
everyone’s mind is not on any of our lists. Go to Mrs. Wilkes
Boarding House instead, similar but better food and there is not a
three hour waiting in line to get in.
i will be attending SNAG, and would love to have an orchid dinner!
although i am not willing to organize it, i would be happy to attend
and meet people! let me know if this occurs. (i was super fun to
meet some orchid folk at BMAC and ACC!)
also, please attend the pre-snag conference on wednesday. my studio
mate, amy tavern, will be speaking about alternative marketing
methods, and my editor, marthe le van will be giving a talk about
publishing. both talks will be well-worth your money, and you will
learn a lot!
There’s usually a bulletin board for posting notes somewhere
obvious. What say we all meet there at 6 PM on Thursday, and we’ll
figure out where we’re going from there? (And leave a note so others
For posting about the preconference event–the Professional
Development Seminar, or PDS. This is a fantastic and very informative
day of lectures and discussions. It only costs $10 for the 4 hour
program and you need not attend the rest of the conference-- although
that is also well worth it!
This years theme is New Trends in Marketing and will focus on
From obtaining fantastic images to discovering new venues and
mechanisms through which to gain exposure and sell our work as as
well as a glimpse into another life entirely- makers who have opened
their own galleries.
