I have made an error on most of the blogs for the Spring 2014 Show. It pertained to class registration and etc. Our spring show is run very differently from our fall shows. Our spring shows have a lot of sessions that are included with your admission. Registration ahead of time is not required. Please disregard the notice at the bottom of each seminar and mini hands-on workshop postings for our April 25 & 26, 2014 event…

All sessions are free with admission on a first come basis, no registration is required. Only hands-on activities require tickets, which are released 15 minutes before the session starts at the Activity Counter booth #365.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and I apologize for my error.
