I am such a newb

I am such a newb, I did not realize how unusual a thing I did was. I went to the Crochet Guild of America & The Knitting Guild Association Conference in Portland on the 14th...I did not realize that it was their national fall conference. I heard about it from a LYS that was at the State Fair, and thought that it would be a rather common thing. I have been to tons of hunting/fishing/outdoorsmen shows...and just thought that this was a normal regional thing. Needless to say I was a bit suprised when I showed up and it was just one small portion of the Expo center. I brought six friends along, all who knit, I thought all the old ladies would do the same.
