Nowhere near there, but am very close to the Maysville museum. And I was planning to go in the summer to see the unveiling of your work when there are dates finalized. Will you be there?? I'd LOVE to meet you there :)

Bill you are Most deserving of being selected as "Craftsman of the Year".   We hope you have a great time in Carlsbad at the Craftsmanship Museum.   Wish you were able to be at the N.A.M.E.S. Show in Wyandotte but we know you have to be in Chicago at that time.  Thanks so much for all you do for this great hobby.  Best Wishes
