Seminars begin promptly at 9:00am and will take place in the north-east end of the tent section of the Electric Park Complex. Elayne Luer, GG of AboutLapidary has been gracious enough to offer a section of her tent space so that the seminars have a home. Each seminar should last one hour, and there will be ample time to answer your individual questions. There will be supplied seating for 36. And, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

Please know that the presenters have all volunteered their time and expertise. And have borne the expense of being at Tucson. The USFG is deeply indebted tothem for their service and contributions to the faceting community.

If you are a current member of the United States Faceters Guild, there is no charge for you to participate in any of the presentations. If you are not a member, we'd love to have you join us at Tucson, however there will be a nominal charge of $10 per session. (Or, maybe you should just join the USFG; an annual membership is only $18.) Membership is open to all, and you do not have to be a US citizen.
