The woodworking show used to be in West Springfield MA and pulled out
because of a conflict. When they left they were doing very well. Now
the http://www.woodworksevents.com/ group is running a show and seems
to be doing well. I personally like this new groups show better. That
with the Providence Furniture Show mentioned and the every two years
Hartford show ( more geared for Comercial shops) coming up this Spring
makes me think shows are doing well.All three of these seem very well
attended and growing. Maybe shows are off in some places but not New
England.just like sports teams.
Thank you, Henry. I hadn't checked that one. Signed up for Frank
Klausz's seminar. Never met the guy. :-) Schaumberg is two or three
hours away but it'll get me out of the house on a winter's day.
Now all I have to do is decide whether I want to leave about 4AM or
spend Chicago prices on a room. That's money I could spend on power
tools... or a new plane...
I can understand why. They had a show in Buffalo, NY this past weekend.
If I hadn't received a postcard (I'm on their mailing list from
previous year(s) attendance) informing me of the show I would not have
known the show was here. I did not see one newspaper ad for the show
nor was there any radio/TV advertisement.
Two year ago the major vendors boycotted the show. I was told by one of
the vendors it was due to lack of the show's promotion. Last year's
show had few vendors. This year it was even smaller. Why should the
vendors participate if "The Woodworking Shows" fail to advertise?
Homier has a show coming up this weekend in Hamburg, NY (same place as
The Woodworking Show). At least they had a four page color ad in the
