Honestly, Robin has told me that she will go to any area if there is 
enough interest.  She's lectured all over the states.  Thus, if we 
want her to come here, we simply need to get up a large enough 
group.  One of the things she teaches is how to create your own 
gothic fitted dress.  She does a full day's workshop on just that, 
with people ending up with a pattern for a dress at the end of it.
