If any part of the workshop was online, I would be happy to follow that way :)

Will anyone who is coming to the workshop in Buffalo be driving there across the NY State Thruway (I-90) with an extra seat in the car? There are a number of convenient meeting places at various exits in the Syracuse area (from I-481, exit 34A, over to Weedsport, exit 40). Or if you're taking the scenic route, NY 104 along the south shore of Lake Ontario, that goes right through my hometown.

 

My husband, who some of you may remember from the last workshop at Niagara College, would like to come to the dinner on Saturday night. He won't be able to attend the Saturday workshop because he needs to attend the university commencement exercises Saturday morning, a 2.5 hour drive away. We're a one-car family, so if I drive myself over on Friday, my husband has no way to get there for dinner. So I could either drive over with my husband for the Saturday night dinner (only) or to catch a ride over with someone who will be passing through so I can participate more fully, and my husband will come when the ceremonies are done and join us all for dinner. Or I could take a train, but that's less easy if I want to bring a box of tools with me. The Exchange St station is right around the corner from the hotel, and there are 3 trains that are scheduled to get there from Syracuse on Friday. One of them might even get me into town early enough to join you all for dinner that night! But given a choice, I'd rather ride with a friend or three than with a few hundred people I don't know. 😀 In any case, my husband and I would stay over Saturday night after dinner and drive ourselves home Sunday, so if I use one of your car seats on the way over, you could use it on the way home to hold all your chocolates and any other purchases.

 

I don't currently plan to do the master classes, so a ride on Friday would be my preference. I do know Buffalo reasonably well, and can navigate you to the hotel.

 

Let me know if I might fit into your travel plans, please!

Sooo... what's the experience level requirement for something like this?  Intended audience?  In another thread I mentioned I was going to look into classes offered nearby, however, after review, they are not for me.  I may have a reason to be on other coast soon, timing would work out well.  I've been eating chocolate bars that I make from scratch for nearly 4 years, have made dipped treats a couple times, and bon bons once 😁

Any experience level is fine, the more the merrier. The attendees have a range of experience from those who just started to full time professionals.

 

I attended for the first time last year, and I was very happy that I did. Met a bunch of great people, all of whom are willing to share and help. Learnt some new techniques and shared everyone's creations.

Due to our 2 week Anniversary trip to France at the end of April, I will be unable to make it to this work shop.  Very sad to miss seeing everyone this year!
