Winnie,
You're welcome. Just passing along information received from Jan, as I figure there might be people who haven't found the Yahoo groups yet, or (like me) find it difficult to search for old messages there.
This will be my second festival, and I'm excited too. I know that several people I met last year won't be traveling cross-country, but I'm looking forward to meeting new people who weren't able to travel to Rochester last year. And I'm sure Jan has put together a special event. Only a few more days ... and still quite a bit of work to do on table hostess gifts. :-)
See you soon!
Francine
