With Blade only weeks away is anyone else from the forum going? This will be my first time. Meeting other makers is something that I am really looking forward to.
I'm going for the first time, plan on buying a lot of material and feel it out about maybe getting a table in the future.
I've been told by a lot of people over the years I had to at least go to this show and check it out.
There will be lots of "different" things at the Blade Show.....but if that sort of thing isn't you're spouse's cup of tea, there is a galleria on floor below the show that has a bunch of shops/stores... eating places, and just across the street from the show is a big mall (if I remember correctly it's call the Cumberland Mall?) The level that the show is on has a "sky bridge" that goes over the highway, and leads right into the Mall parking lot.
Personally, being from Montana, I hate driving while I'm in Atlanta....so if I go anywhere other then the hotel, it's on foot....or somebody else is driving!
I'll be signing autographs while at the show, but I'll be holding a raffle that will allow you to bid on one of my signatures. I'll only be signing 5 autographs so make sure you get there early and stand in line for hours for your chance to get one. All funds go to my favorite charity, The Jess Hoffman Retirement Fund.I hope I get to meet that "Jess Hoffman" guy, I hear that he is a dead ringer for Brad Pitt, so ladies keep yours eyes peeled.
