So, as many have suggested and requested, this year’s conference will be conducted online and direct to you!

This year marks the fifth consecutive culmination of combined collaboration by @ladiesofltrprs@centralprintstudios, and @firecrackerpress. We are excited and look forward to seeing your faces, on our screens, in September!
