Carolyn, Sounds like a very educational workshop. Have never been to the Wilmington Meeting House, that may be an old place as well.

All the best with the workshop.

The good news is that I learned a lot from the other presenters and I was the only one who got standing applause from the organizer. Also, they filmed it for future presentations. Unfortunately, attendance was not good, but since they can show it again in the future, who knows?
