Gail I gave a quote to GNSI Board for Video taping the summer workshops
I felt that these are rare opportunities to capture the Masters for
historical reasons, & for generating continuing proceeds from each years
workshops for the Guild and the artists.

The cost to have it professionally taped and edited was aprox $5000,

I think the board needs member feed back to commence.
