Bring Your Spouse

We'll fill her Friday and Saturday with tours, shopping, and presentations by home and garden experts And we'll have her back at the conference in time for dinner.

We've reserved a block of discounted rooms for a limited number of attendees. You'll have fun; but hotel management won't know what to do with all those rowdy woodworkers socializing in one place.
