I too attended the Convention, as a speaker, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Lots to see and do, lots of weights to fondle and lust after. The dollar being in our favour, it was a good value for money trip too! There were a couple of British makers present - Peter McDougall and Mike Hunter - and one dealer - Ray Metcalfe of Sweetbriar Gallery. Not many Brit attendees though: just me and Helen, and Zvi and Angela Klemer. Unless you count Angela B too.....!
