J and FloraCraft invited some of the best minds from all aspects of the floral industry for an introduction to all of the possibilities at FloraCraft and some great brainstorming sessions, too.

Left to Right: Dr. Jim DelPrince, Beth Ann Morsman, Gretchen Sell, Mike Romansik, J Schwanke, Kebbie Hollingsworth, Norma Chapman (aka Wilma Dow) and Bobbi Ecker Blatchford.


Vic Burwell and Jim. Vic is the plant manager and one heck of a nice guy. Bobbi, a floral industry Legend with Beth Ann from Marketing.

Gretchen Sell, from Design Master keeps the mood light. At right an overview of the FAB 5 "sharin' the luv."


Kebbie makes a point (who knew she could look so cut-throat), while Jim poses for a class picture.


J catches up with his "other mother" while Jim puts on his thinking cap.

Kebbie and Jim show their enthusiasm for being at FloraCraft, Styrofoam ground zero.


J with Norma Chapman - the best account representative we know for Styrofoam®. Thanks to Norma for keeping the meeting on track and for keeping such complete notes.

All in all, it was a great meeting - Thanks go out to our gracious host FloraCraft as well as the Floral Advisory Board members!
