Default Anyone go to the Stampaway convention in Cincinnati?

It was my first time at this convention and really enjoyed it. Since I live 15 minutes away, I felt really lucky. The one impression I had though was that many of the cards displayed were a lot more complex than what I see on blogs and different galleries. Seems to me one of the trends right now is one layer cards with large sentiments and water colored images which I didn't see a lot of. The cards I saw reminded me of the cards I use to see displayed at Archivers (before I was a card maker) . The ones that made me think a real artist had done them and there was no way I'd be able to do them. I'll admit I didn't go to every booth due to a broken foot, but this was my overall impression. Any impressions ....what did you like, not like? Did u take any classes? Favorite booths ?

I've been going for the past 6 years this year I enjoyed Simon Says booth the most spent alot of cash there. I also do more make and takes this year which allowed me to try some new products. Gary's booth is always a good stop to ink refills and new Zig markers.

I did not go this year but I went about 6 years ago. I'm wondering if it was super crowded and if they extended it to 2 days instead of the 1 day???

I am curious what vendors were there. We have an annual rubber stamp convention just north of Detroit but it has gotten much smaller/few vendors. The venue has changed for this year (it is this weekend) and I am guessing it is because there are not that many vendors coming.

I suggest going to the Stampaway USA 2018 page on Facebook, then posting your query there for better chances of trading your class.

Default Friday Preview Night Aug. 10, 2018

Any body going to the Friday Preview Night have an extra ticket? I have also posted on the Stampaway FB site as mentioned above.
This convention is by far the best for stampers. I loved going every year when I lived in Cincinnati. I am visiting home for once while it is going on and want to go to the preview!
