Just a quick FYI I copied from another forum for those of you in the SW corner.
Popular Woodworking Magazine will be hosting the Woodworking in America Conference in Pasadena this October, the weekend of the 12, 13, & 14. That is the weekend before "Craftsman Weekend".
Woodworking in America is a 3-day conference for woodworkers featuring class sessions with world-class woodworkers and a marketplace of tool suppliers. Among the presenters will be Jim Ipekjian and one of the special events is dinner on the terrace at the Gamble house. Here is a link to the conference site for more information:
