Hiromi Paper attended the Guild of Bookworkers Standard of Excellence Seminar last month for the first time in several years (and somehow it is already the end of November as I write this recap!). It was located in Hotel Kabuki in Japantown, San Francisco, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to drive up the 6 or so hours. I went with Joanna(her very first conference) and had a great time there. We were surrounded with Japanese restaurants and goodies, not to mention a few bus stops down from Union Square/Crown Point Press/SFMOMA. It was certainly nice to take a break from driving in the city. The seminar itself took place in the span of 3 days. We were able to setup the morning of and come down from our room every morning after. Participants certainly took advantage of our 20% off & free shipping. Our new complete Text Libris swatchbooks came just in time as well. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!
Also, I have just received word that over 1,500 origami cranes were folded for the banquet!
