I have learned the names of the demonstrators for the 2012 Spring and Fall Piney Woods Hammer-Ins from Master Smith JR Cook.

The Spring Piney Woods Hammer In is set for April 28 and 29, 2012 at Texarkana College - Moran School of Bladesmithing and will feature demonstrations by Master Smiths JR Cook, Mike Williams, Kevin Cashen, Jim Batson, and Founder BR Hughes. The advanced demonstrations will include Sword Forging with Kevin Cashen.
In addition there are always a large number of Master Smiths attending this event who are available to offer informal critiques of knives for aspiring JS and MS candidates before the Atlanta Blade Show in June.

 
The Fall Piney Woods Hammer-In is set for September 15 and 16, 2012 at Texarkana College - Moran School of Bladesmithing and will feature demonstrations by Master Smiths Jim Crowell, Tim Potier, Mike Williams, JR Cook,and Roger Massey.
