Back in the Saddle and other Bridge City News…
“It’s so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and say the opposite.”
– Sam Levenson
This week I returned from my annual two-week work retreat. Good thing I left Dodge when I did, that Clearance Sale website meltdown was bad… as those of you who participated know.
As promised, ANYBODY who purchased clearance items from the sale announcement through Feb 4 will receive a FREE tool. And, also as promised, it was the first item on my work retreat agenda. I think it is darn cool and want one, so I know at least one Bridge City customer will be happy. Plus, there are no complaints allowed when it is FREE!
Next week we will announce the agenda for our 30th Anniversary activities in August. We are finalizing details, hotel information and the activities. It is a great time of the year to visit the Pacific Northwest and we do hope you consider joining us for both the exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Craft and our book reveal. We know how to throw a party here at BCTW–and past details will go to my grave…
For those of you who are making projects primarily using the Jointmaker Pro, and want to be included in both the book and the exhibition, your entry deadline to make the book is March 1! If you don’t care about the book aspect, Nicole Nathan will accept entries up until July 1, 2013. There are no guarantees your work will be accepted but it is a cool opportunity.

Why is this so useful you ask? Click here. I saw this in person about 10 years ago and it is something else.
PS: Almost forgot to mention that the first new tool for 2013 will be announced as soon as…next week!
