The gathering will be held April 19-21 in West Seattle and they gave me a King suite...which they are renaming the "Empress suite" for the duration of my stay!

We do art, exchange materials, laugh a lot, eat too much, trade ATCs (Artist trading cards 2 1/2 x 3 1/2), give away extra stuff, and generally have fun while creating and learning!

I'm so glad they picked the end of the month so I can recover from earlier travels!

Have any of you been to an art convention or gathering? Did they have art classes? What other activities did they do????

I found out about this one from ATC's for all....where I am a member. This one isn't going to be crammed with classes, but we will be trading cards and showing off new techniques and gabbing a LOT! More relaxed than the Portland event last year, but not as educational.

I went last year, in Portland, Ore. Fabulous fun!  (Except for the tire trouble...were you around for that?)

I complained bitterly about the parking fee so since they can't reduce or eliminate it, they gave me that much off my room! With the group discount, I ended up with what they used to call the "King Suite" but are renaming the "Empress Suite"  for my stay! Only cost $10 more than a regular room this way! I did say I would take a roommate if anyone needed a place to stay and found one! It will be so much fun and since it's got a big living room, we can use it for some of the gatherings, too!

I've never been to one but it sounds like such fun! A friend of mine just spent the weekend at a scrapbooking event and said it was loads of fun and productive too.
