Taking Preserving by the Pint to Chicago!

RTM food swap

It seems like this week has been all about event announcements here on the old blog, but I’m going to be out and about like crazy this month and just want to make sure that you all have a chance to come see me if I’m in your neck of the woods.

After I get back from my trip through a handful of Southern states, I’m dashing off to the Chicago area for a four day stint. I’m teaching classes, doing demos, giving talks, and signing as many books as I possibly can. Here’s where I’ll be.

  • Hi,

    judging. It will again be held in San Francisco at the Hub and will be taking place in Sept.

    We would love to have you participate.

    Happy to get more info to you.

    Kind regards,

  • I would so be there if I wasn’t moving that week. I’ll spread the word to see if any of my friends/family can go in my place 🙂

  • I wish you were coming to St. Louis! Chicago’s only a few hours away, but not in my budget right now. Hopefully you will make it this way sometime.

  • Hi Marissa –

    You might have a typo on the Evanston date. Do you mean April 29th? It currently says April 19th.

    1. Jeanne, you are too right. I actually just saw that about two minutes ago myself. I actually meant April 28 and I’ve updated it. Thanks for noticing! 🙂

  • Arg, I leave Chicago and you arrive. Have a great time and let me know the next time you are in Spokane or north Idaho!

  • Oh geez…you’ll be less than three miles from my folks house when you are in Highwood, IL…wishing I could be there to give you a big thank you hug for all of your wonderful posts…alas..I’m in the (still) very snowy far reaches of WI.

    We’d love to have you come up in the spring (July) and teach us!!!! love and peace

  • Too bad you are not actually in the city and only in the suburbs. Would have loved to see you. I’ve been canning since helping my mom in the 60’s.

  • How exciting, you will be at the Northbrook Earth Day celebration! I will be there all day with community garden and farmers market booths. Can’t wait to meet you!
