I'd been hoping to attend an engraving show in Reno as an exhibitor in January 2009. I'd been a bit misinformed about the application process, I had no idea that it was invitation only, and evidently I did not manage to show my work to the right people when I went to visit last year. So I just found out today that I'm not eligible to show there. This is totally heartbreaking, I'd been counting on that being my first engraving show and really helping me get my scrim out there in front of the right crowd.
I'm at a loss again. Why must everything I'm so sure about go kablooie lately??
Aaaarrrrg. Pep talks welcome, I'm wondering if the people who tell me to give it up are right. :-(
