Conference | Gathering - very different things.
The term Conference implies lectures and events. That takes
significant time to get right, which is why I said I didn't feel I
could organise one. The idea behind the Gathering was just that - why
don't those who wish to do so just gather together at a pleasant
location and enjoy chatting about henna. No organisation beyond
locating a venue and telling people how to get there.
You knew that I was planning some sort of gathering for September
because you asked me to move it to a date when you could be there.
However, several UK henna artists had said that September was their
preferred time because they wanted every available summer weekend to
work UK festivals, etc.
As it turned out, those of us who wanted to go (Sam, Andy and myself)
missed the cheap flights, and Sam and Andy got a festival booking for
that weekend, so we decided not to bother.
