I've taken all 3 Wilton classes at Michaels. But there is so much more out there to learn! I was thinking there has to be others like me out there and maybe there are clubs where people get together to swap ideas, practice, etc. Anyone a member of something like this? We live 3 hours away from Wilton's headquarters in IL and someone suggested I take a few classes there. But that's a long drive, and the classes are pricey. By the time I figure in cost of gas, hotel, class, etc, I could probably pay a private instructor locally. My next step is maybe buying a few DVDs and trolling youtube again.

Consider joining ICES. Many states have mini classes throughout the year. The ICES annual conference is in Charlotte this year. (It was in Chicago two years ago.) You can pack a lot of learning in a few days!!

Do you have to be an ICES member to go to the convention and look around? It has never come this close to my home town before and I want to go and see the vendors and decorators but I can't find anything that tells me whether I can go or not if I'm not a member of ICES.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Yes, you can buy a pass for the Vendors and also one to visit the cake room.

You can contact them about whether a non-member can buy the one day shopper's pass. ICES convention is a lot of fun and great learning experience.
