A Special Event for the Locals . . .

I had heard raves about Pat Huntoon from Technique Junkies Newsletter for several years – finally met her in person at last October’s show in York, PA.  But I had never had a chance to really talk with her until our booths were side-by-side at the show in Clearwater a couple of weeks ago.  Of course, first I had to move a bunch of our boxes that were taking up her booth space . . .


We had several topics of conversation – most notably the blizzard that was bearing down on her home in Connecticut and how she was going to get home after the show.  Eventually, we worked our way around to different shows that we attend – and she mentioned that she was going to be at the Indianapolis show the first weekend in March.

This is where years on the road come in handy – to drive from Connecticut to Indianapolis, Pat will have to pass within about 15 minutes of our retail store in Dayton.  So I suggested a stop along the way.  Pat and Karen worked out the particulars and we announced it yesterday – a trunk show and free make it/take it so Pat can teach two Gelato techniques.  So if you’re a local, or traveling from the east to Indianapolis, stop by and meet Pat from 9:00 a.m. –12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1.

  1. I'm one of Pat's designers and have met her in person too! You will LOVE having her in your store. You should also make sure that everyone signs up for her newsletter because you will see lots of sales from it! Everyone will want to get the products they need to do the techniques! ;-) A win-win for all.
