You missed a great meeting!
We missed a few of our members, but there was really a great turnout for the first meeting after the summer recess. Several members brought work for the show and tell and we gave away a couple of sample copies of a carving magazine from the UK. Another member sucessfully completed the "egg" challenge in beautiful fashion, Sally Butler brought some beautiful scroll saw work, and Lou and Samir showed their progress on some of their carvings. The surprise guest was Chuck Ferrell who brought some of his caricatures and introduced many of us to the art of carving erasers! Everybody seemed to enjoy the program, even if we couldn't quite duplicate Chuck's success. But as he said, it was easy to get rid of your mistakes! Hope to see some of the members that we have been missing next meeting! Stay sharp!
