We are currently working on creating a mass mailing through mail chimp. To much of my surprise, we have several people on our old mailing list for booklets that we don’t have emails for. If you have received a show booklet through the mail in the past, please send me your current email address at info@greatlakesfibershow.com. Thank you.
