Sharen, you aren't alone, I too feel that the exchanges should be for
all printmakers, not denying someone because of their choice of a
technique. The exchange of techniques is part of what makes this
forum interesting and it should be encouraged, not discouraged.

Hello Maria.

There seems to be a problem with 8 of the artists signed up with this
particular exchange. Two calls for confirmation, as you recommended, have gone out.
The names are:
Julio Rodruguez
Mary Grassell
Murilo Antonio Pereira
Minna Sora
Jamie Obesrschlake
Jason Engelhardt
Guadalupe Victoria
Kristine Alder

I can't imagine what has happened and am concerned with timing, etc. for
their works as well as those artists on the waiting list. We have 4 replacement
possiblities. Shall I notify them? Ask for more volunteers? Oh my!
