Waxhaw Springfest ‘06

Waxhaw Spring Fest 2006
Saturday and Sunday
May 27 & 28, 2006
Waxhaw Spring Fest 2006 was a wonderful event for so many families, individuals, and the entire community. It was well attended and brought many folks to the booth of the Waxhaw Woodturners. We had 2 lathes set up under a tent and had several members of the Southern Woodturners from Concord to help us turn bowls and many other beautiful pieces crafted with great skill. The response was quite positive and very encouraging to all of us.
We had many inquiries for membership and a number of requests for instruction and classes. Flyers given out explained the organization of the WW Club and our scheduled meetings with demonstrations. It was received very graciously and with much interest.
A number of items sold were handcrafted by Dave and Joan McKeithan and others. It provided encouragement and delight to each artist spurring us on to more and higher quality pieces with original inspired designs.
This experience was well worth the effort and each artist involved is congratulated.
This is a job well done!
