News from you 3/19/08

Yep, it’s another edition of News From You. I’m still behind on the many submissions which continue to be much appreciated. If you’re new to these parts, News From You is a regular series best described as an eclection of news, the weird, the arcane and the downright useless of interest to F-I infovores. Send your submissions to News From You.
Members on the forum are posting to meet up at the upcoming fabric show April 14-16 in Los Angeles. Check in if you want to meet the gang.
