Rick Cavasin makes all over humble after Nicholas Yeager touted his skill.
Don't matter. I've watched Rick work and seen his stuff, and he is one of
the best vellum/parchment makers in the world today. If you can make the
lecture, please do so; you won't be disappointed. If you can't make it,
order some samples and then buy some vellum/parchment. One of these days
he'll have to quite the day job....
