My name's Sara Adams, and I discovered origami for myself during Christmas 2005. I've been hooked ever since. The intention of this site is to get you hooked, too.

27th CDO Convention (5-8 December 2009, Verbania Pallanza)

Sure enough, the name of the Italian origami society, Centro Diffusione Origami, is promising enough. (I think you could translate it as "Centre for Spreading Origami"). And when I found out that I'd start working in a full time position shortly after this year's convention, I decided I just had to go. Did the convention live up to my expectations? In one word: yes. In a couple more words, here are my highlights:
