Artistry in Wood showcase 2016 : day 3 of 3

From John Twedt, Event Chair

I would like to invite you to the 2016 Artistry in Wood show sponsored by the Woodworkers, Woodturners and Carvers Clubs. It will be at the Woodsmith Store on Friday the 23rd through Sunday the 25th of September. The show will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

We have been planning for the show for some time and all of the pieces are in place. The projects that you have made since the last show are welcome. You may also bring projects that you have never shown in a prior show. The show will be held along with the Woodsmith Fall Sale. When you attend the show you can shop for the items you need for your next project. We have a loyal clientele that marvels at seeing the things that the Club Members produce so please join us in September. See you there!
