Topic: DENIMBRUIN 2017
Posted By: mr randal
Subject: DENIMBRUIN 2017
Date Posted: 18 Aug 2016 at 5:14pm





 I fully intended for 2016 to be the last year for DB, for a variety of personal and logistical reasons. Prime among them that DB 2015 was particularly difficult for me.
 As it turns out, however, this year was largely stress free and completely rewarding.

 A few weeks after it ended I checked in with all of the hosts and prime exhibitors, and to a man they expressed a strong desire to go forward with the events.

 So next year you will see participation from all of the people who have helped build Denimbriuin into what it is today: Michael & Charla Harris, Roy, Nicholas Hollows, AB Fits, Standard & Strange, LVC,  Florian Bertmer, and more.


Next year will likely have a somewhat different format.

 I want Denimbruin (as I do denimbro) to get onto a more positive, community based vibe.
 I heard from quite a few denimbros and exhibitors that the DB events could be overwhelming, and that due to the jam-packed weekend it was hard to connect with other bros. I also get the feeling that some of the exhibitors can feel like the party atmosphere can make it hard to interface with attendees.
 I'll be working on those things with the hosts to develop some strategies around this while maintaining the good vibes of our events.

 One step I'm pretty sure we'll take is that the public events of DB will be reduced from three to two, with Friday probably going to a private, non-publicized meet & greet with the hosts and exhibitors, to which all attending denimbros will be welcome.
 I hope that this will be added inducement for forum members to travel to SF for the shows- as now there will be a much more intimate gathering on one day with better access to your favorite designers and manufacturers.
 Likely this day will also have a denimbro swap meet built in.
 Hopefully this will be enough to finally provoke one of our British members to attend...
(Ross, you didn't count in the past, though I suppose you do now!)

 I'll be taking input- anyone who has some please send it my way. Denimbruin started as an outgrowth of this forum, and should largely be a reflection of what our forum members would like it to be.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in Denimbruin over these last five years, both in person and online! It would truly be nothing without you.

Too many small children to contemplate making it over the pond next year and although not a particularly active member I really enjoy seeing it happen in pictures. Great effort Mark.

Holland is relatively close to the UK, I'm sure you don't mind a Dutch family coming over.
Going to try and make it work. It's probably to soon to ask for dates

Holland would be acceptable.

😀

Dates will be a while, but likely a little later than previous years, maybe early-mid August.

I really hope you can make it! If you feel like doing a little work while you're here, I know folks at several local tattoo parlors, so could see about a guest chair...

Already thinking about the trip that could be planned around this one.
fly into Reno, drive to Lake Tahoe for a day or two, drive to Yosemite for a couple days, then stay in Oakland or Berkley this time.
Yep, ready to do this

Any tentative dates yet, or is it still too far off?

Not yet, Lefty.

We're thinking a little later in August, but a lot depends on when the various other trade shows happen, and some of them are notoriously last minute about setting dates.

With my recent employment, I thought I'd be able to make a last-second move to come this year. However, things didn't work out. I will be attending next year.

That being said, are you going to make the t-shirt available to non-attending bros?

Bummed I won't be able to make it Friday. It's looking like a go for Saturday and Sunday though.

Hey guys- I am trying to have a T made, but due to some circumstances beyond my control, it has been very last minute, and I'm not sure I will have Ts ready before Denimbruin. In fact I will count myself lucky if they are ready by that Saturday!
 So I can't offer any for sale before the events this year.

Sorry about the problems with the shirt. I hope you get them by this weekend. I was under the assumption that us non-attendees would get leftovers anyway and thus wouldn't be available until after Denimbruin.
Best of luck for a great weekend.

Velvasheen Ts are at the printers and they say they can make the deadline, so a very limited number (20) of Ts should be available during the events starting on Friday.

such a great design... hope, hope, hope there will be leftovers for those of us that can't make it.

I was all set to travel and a show dropped in my lap so no go. Now that we're close to "go time" client decides they don't want to pay our technicians so I could have done it all along. Although I expect they'll have problems and I'll get called to the job to "unf@ck" something... *sigh*
