I am going to quote what Sue says "The North-East Texas TOGA is fast approaching. The dates are April 25th and 26. We gather in Lone Oak TX ( just down the road a bit from Greenville), about 40 miles east of Dallas. We have lots of demos planned and always have lots of machines to admire, lust after, and some even go home with us."

I'm still going this year even though I now live eight hours away! Everybody is so friendly, last year I learned how to treadle and the year before I learned how to use a and crank. I hope you can come, and if you do, be sure to say hi! I'll be the redhead with long red hair!
