Just looking at this poster makes me happy. This event, the Pottery Invitational, is happening at the Worcester Center for Crafts, Friday April 5th - Sunday, April 7th. Don't know if I'll make it - it's about 2 1/2 hours away, and that's a firing weekend for me - but thought I'd pass it along, if only so the poster can make you happy, too.
Almost forgot: blah-blah-blah-Kickstarter. 70% now, yay!
