Binders put it on. It was some venders that came in with ther products.

And it was so great to put a face with a person. I feel like I know a lot of you, and now I know for sure that feeling is true not actually meeting a Calligraph friend. Can't wait to do it again.

It really was great meeting a CalligraFriend!  I wish I could've gone back today, too.  Can't wait to hear what Staci got.   ;)

Not to much. Pentel had some cool stuff there. Speedball was there picked up some of their nibs. Several company's had pen brushes. They had some really nice light boxes but they were really expensive. My favorite paper Canson was there but did not have the kind that I use. winsor newton was there and had lots of  gouache but I did not need any. i did purchase a brush the lady said was top of the line for putting my gouache on my nib called a silver black velvet 3008s flat brush.

But if you were a painter you would have been in heaven. Also the "free" classes they gave examples away so I got a Winsor Newton water color pen. Also has some gum arabic and a brush and some tubes of water colors. I think I paid around 9 bucks for the same arabic at Hobby Lobby. And got it free at the show. Wish I would have taken a class from all of them.
