LofLCon: Day 2

Saturday was started off with breakfast in the Printers Fair, where there was much mingling, meeting up, and munching! After the excellent panel discussions and lunch at one of Asheville's more than 300 restaurants, it was over to Bookworks for demonstrations by Kelly McMahon, Paul Moxon, Cat Realce, Laurie Corral, Chandler O'Leary, and Jessica Spring. Then Judith Berliner's talk . . . more on that tomorrow!

We can't believe it, but it's here: the Conference!


It's been more than a year in the works, but in two short days, the Ladies of Letterpress conference will descend upon Asheville! The town will not have seen so many printers since . . . probably ever. Needless to say, we are completely thrilled, and can't wait to meet everyone, make some new…
