So as you can see, we’ll be there Saturday with quite a bit of new stuff we’ve been working on and a few old favourites. Since it’s more of a workshop format, the show will be a little more interactive. We’ll also be bringing along the Mobile Menstrual Zine Library. Adventures in Menstruating #3 will be available as well, for purchase or trade.
We’re really psyched to be sharing the bill with Jenny’s pad workshop, and Alexis and Neely’s zine-making workshop (which should be amazing, from all indications).
Hope to see ya there.
