  5. I've taken snap & tumble's Letterpress Curiosity Workshop and it's wonderful to be able to get a chance to use her Craftsmen and the Adana. It's in Toronto too(Scarborough is within the Greater Toronto area).

  6. Sapling Press in Pittsburgh, PA will sometimes post class details on the Sapling Press Blog.

  7. Oh thanks for posting about St. Louis! I feel like all of the cool classes are in NY, Chicago, or LA so this makes me happy! :-)
