We were there!

We got at least 2 new members AND a few new options for other fairs/events! (Will post about those separately)

This is Leif, from the association! He’s maned the forge both days!

The Artist-Blacksmith Association of North America (ABANA) is the world’s largest Blacksmith’s organization. They publish a very classy colour magazine quarterly, The Anvil’s Ring, as well as a black and white “how to” magazine called The Hammer’s Blow. They also put on a big conference every two years.
