Just a reminder that signups for Exchange 53 will only be open for a few more days. As yet the exchange is not full. We still have room for another dozen participants, so if you've been sitting on the fence trying to decide, consider this a friendly nudge in the direction of taking part. The exchange could really use your support! It's a small format print, which should go much quicker than a large block. The theme is open. You can check out the full details and the signup page here: Monica Bright has volunteered to take the helm and be our coordinator this time around. You will be hearing from her in the near future. For all those participating in Exchange 52, your delivery deadline of May 1 is nearly upon you. Keep up the good work and get those prints out to Diane Cutter as soon as you possibly can. She's been working hard behind the scenes to keep this ball rolling. Thanks to everyone for all of your support in this awesome exchange program!(Now get back to work ;o) )Kristine

Most recent blog updates coming out of our workshop have been over on the Woodblock Roundtable side of things - I'm part way through a marathon batch of 50 cases for the 'Arts of Japan' print set, and that is of course eating all the time.

But I ran into a small glitch in that work yesterday; I was dressing a stack of case 'tops' to size when my table saw developed a strange noise, and then a strange wobble in the blade. I made a cursory inspection by taking the access plate off and checking the blade mounting, but could see nothing out of the ordinary:
