Homeschool convention season is upon us. I’ve already mentioned I won’t be able to attend one of the Great Homeschool Conventions due to distance limitations. I also shared my thoughts on 5 ways an introvert like me can survive a homeschooling convention. But if I did attend a homeschool convention, here are five vendors I would really like to meet. The reason I would like to meet them? They are all people David and I have worked with from a distance and have not had the pleasure of meeting in person. Here they are in ABC order…
Dianna Wiebe at GrapeVine Studies – David has been doing design work for Dianna for a number of years now. I’ve become acquainted with Dianna since starting to use their Bible materials with Caroline. I’ve written about how much we love them and we continue to love them. (Watch for a giveaway coming up!) It would be great to meet the woman behind the lessons.
Dianne Craft at Child Diagnostics – We’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Dianne and her husband, Ron, on a number of projects. And as the mother of a right-brained child, I find the information on her website and in her materials fascinating. The information on blocked learning gates is amazing! I would so enjoy talking with her and sitting in on some of her sessions. 🙂
Kim Kautzer at WriteShop – We’ve been working with Kim for years on her awesome writing curriculum. I do editing for her and David does the layout of the materials. Kim is just a fun person to work with! After spending so much time working with her, I would love to meet her in person.
Maggie, Bob and Tyler Hogan at Bright Ideas Press – David has been working with BIP for a number of years and they are delightful people with great products. Judging from my interactions with Tyler on Facebook, I think he’s be a lot of fun to meet in person.
The Gang at The Old Schoolhouse – Technically we’ve already met some of them. We had the pleasure of meeting Paul and Gena Suarez a few years ago when they were coming through Michigan. But there are so many other people we interact with on a daily basis because David does the magazine layout each month. It would be fun to spend some time in their booth and put real faces with names.
If you are fortunate enough to live near a Great Homeschool Conventions location, then head over to their website and check out who will be there! They have some great speakers lined up and lots of terrific vendors to interact with in the vendor hall. There is also a blogger meet-up in the works so make sure you are following GHC on Facebook and Twitter so you can get the up-to-date information on where to connect with bloggers you would like to meet in person!
