Is Santa Fe your choice due to convenience,proximity to your
residence or just a space you can use?
I personally find that trying to locate any major event in a
centrally located state brings not only more interest in that it is
more affordable for air travel,paying for per diem and hotel costs
is far less in,say Tennessee,N.Georgia, North Carolina,[ If Not New
Orleans (most airlines fly into its international airport,the city
needs the revenue desperately and has a wide range of affordable if
not free facilities to host such events ! ),levels the field as far
as accessibility to small scale jewelers without a business/es
backing their being able to attend,and is central to a growing number
of schools and centres of metalsmithing and jewelry making arts and
is unaffected except in Feb. by airport closings etc., due to weather
events...there are more pro's as well but i'm mainly curious as to
why Santa Fe wins.. thanks..sounds like a wkshp. many could use.
