Handcrafted Soapmaker's Guild Meeting 2008

It's a long way from Tucson to Burlington, Vermont, home of the 2008 Handcrafted Soapmaker's Guild (HSMG) meeting and annual convention. I wish I could have attended, but having chemo every three weeks put the ka-bosh on that idea. Instead, our longtime employee, Kaye, went to represent Snowdrift Farm.

From all reports, Kaye enjoyed herself immensely. Though she is not a soapmaker (Kaye prefers lotions), she learned a great deal and met lots of friendly people. Sounds like she'll want to go back again next year. Rumor has it the 2009 event will be held in sunny California -- a mere car drive away (if we can afford the gas!).

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended this year's meeting. Every year, the meetings get bigger and better. Snowdrift Farm hosted "movie night" with coffee and dessert, airing Dr. Bronner's "Magic Soap Box" at the local theater across from the Inn at Essex where the annual convention was held. We hope to provide another sponsored event at the 2009 meeting, and believe me when I say, I will be there with bells on.

If you attended the 2008 HSMG event in Burlington, please drop us a line and let us know your impressions. If you want more information on joining the Guild or attending the 2009 event, please log on to the HSMG website.
