2011 Annual Convention: November 3-5

The convention will be held in Timonium, Maryland, in the Baltimore area, from November 3-5, 2011. Friday and Saturday will feature individual critiques and small group discussions on topics such as string selection, set-up, varnish, and arching. Bow discussions include wood selection, modeling, camber, and more. The addition of an acoustics demonstration and discussion will introduce makers to the importance of acoustics as it relates to making. The study exhibit at the 2010 convention was so successful that we have again planned an exhibit of fine instruments and bows for the 2011 convention. To round out the convention there will be a presentation on making a copy of the 1704 Betts Stradivari, currently in the collection of the Library of Congress. A CD of photos and measurements will be offered for sale to attendees only.

This convention will be a great opportunity to talk with makers about the "tools they use and the wood they choose." Our vendors will, once again, be on hand selling the latest tools and supplies. This event is still early in the planning stages and may include more programming. Surely, you will not want to miss this highly interactive convention.

This sounds really interesting! I would love to attend, the highlight below is really attractive to me.

But, it's so soon and I can't go!

Different places every year. They haven't done a great job on their website but you can see where the conventions were up to 2007 on THIS LINK.
