workday wednesdays: letterpress conference part I

Posted by debbie lee on

this past thursday, i packed my carry on bag and flew to asheville, north carolina for the ladies of letterpress conference.  the ladies of letterpress is a trade organization that is, "dedicated to the proposition that a woman's place is in the print shop". 

the conference started with awesome swag

then off to the trade & printer's fair with awesome vendors like virgin wood type from rochester, ny

a tour of asheville's book works for demonstrations on papermaking {detailed post on that later}, die cutting, a table top press demo and more

and panel discussions on subjects like tweeting and social media in your business, letterpress as a business, running and starting a community print shop, and so much more.

in my pre-printer's life, i didn't have a job where i went on business trips, so i've never flown anywhere by myself where i didn't know a single soul.  i'll be honest, i had a difficult time sleeping at night.  despite my lack of sleep, i came back from the conference renewed!  i met amazing printers, heard inspirational stories, was inundated with a plethora of information, and made many new lady printer friends! hooray for the ladies of letterpress conference.. i can't wait for the next one!
