Marvin Elementary Fall Festival & Fundraiser

Marvin Elementary School, close to New Town Rd. in Waxhaw, asked us to join their Fall Festival. Our club voted for it and we currently have two woodturners (one plus a couple) who have volunteered their time. We would like to have two more volunteers from our club and anyone else who just wants to come and hang out with us. Please bring your own chair. I'm told that there will be a Dixie’s BBQ concession stand there. Marvin Elementary is providing our electricity. Please do come out and support the club.

Roland Hege Demonstrates Crochet Hooks Nov 5, 2013

       Roland Hege Demos Crochet Hooks Tuesday Nov 5, 2013 6:30 PM

  Of course Roland Hege cannot just make a plain Crochet Hook, it has to be special.  So how does a woodturner take a plain one and make a unique one?

  Well, you must come and see this Demonstration - just take a small piece of a nice species of wood, chuck it up on your favorite lathe and magically it becomes a beautiful Crochet Hook that a special artist-with-woolens will treasure for a very long time.

  These are just a few from Roland Hege's artistry repertoire which he will demonstrate on Tuesday November 5, 2013. I bet you can't wait—like I can't—to see how he does it all. And I bet it isn't that hard either...just follow his instructifications and bamo! It's created from that piece of wood you have been saving for a long time.

  A short business meeting and a couple quick reports all starting at 6:30 PM and then Mr. Hege will show how it is all done, step by step.

  Don't forget the Famous Raffle which includes a nice $25 Gift Certificate from our local Woodcraft Store in Matthews.

  Bring a Show And Tell piece you made, and maybe some wood to share with someone that really would love to have it.

  Don't forget....Tuesday the Fifth!

  See you there for some coffee......yes, Joan's specialty.
