Hi Robin:
Has the information on this event been posted anywhere yet?
Gail and I probably will attend, as we'll be driving up the east coast that weekend.

Thanks for posting the information on Framers Only.

A question...
Since Gail would not be interested in attending the classes, would I have to pay full price for her? She probably would want the tours.

For all interested here is the registration link for the DC Event. Seating is limited so be sure to register! We anticipate this to be a sell out. It is a great event. Hope to see you all there!

With this event having limited spaces available every person attending will need to pay even if they only participate in part of the event. Sorry! Hope to see you both there!

Thanks Robin.

I will see you there. It will be great!

The hotel website only allows you to register for the two nights of Friday and Saturday, at an excellent rate, with a noon checkout. [$169 per night excluding taxes, etc., very reasonable for that location!].

However you can easily call and get it extended another night. My rate for the additional night was $252.89 including taxes, etc., which again is very reasonable for that location!] Just make sure they make a note on your reservation that you will be checking in on another reservation, so you won't have to change rooms.

Russ, We were only able to get a limited number of rooms for Sunday night due to a large event in town.

Just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who made this Event Possible!

Thank you to Bill Adair, and Martin Kotler for taking time to share their weekend with us and provide information on the American Frame.

We visited Bill's studio, played with gold leaf, ate at Kogod Courtyard, toured the National Portrait Gallery - Presidents Gallery with Bill, toured Lunder Conservation Labs and SAAM with Martin, Visited the Anderson House, and had a wonderful meal at Gold Leaf Studios.

Fun Filled Weekend! Visit the PPFA Facebook page for some photos to check out our adventures - https://www.facebook.com/ProfessionalPictureFramers/
