Great Meeting!

We had a really great turnout at the February meeting! Lots of old members, new members, and visitors. It was really great! We're probably not going to get the minimum attendees required for Debbe Edwards, so Fred is trying to get Roger Stegal to come back in April. Roger does caricatures and won several prizes in the last CCA competition. And since he is local AND a member, we get a great instructor for a great price! It'll be a lot of fun for beginners and old timers! I'll post more details when I get them. Fred is also talking with Janet Cordell about doing a 3 day class toward the end of September. You don't want to miss an opportunity to learn from these world-class carvers!

Everyone is still finishing up the mice we were working on, so we'll probably see a few of them at the show and tell next month! Come join us!

February Meeting- possible Debbe Edwards seminar in March!

This month's meeting will be this Saturday, Feb 11th, at 9 a.m. located in the First Electric building in Jacksonville. In addition to the usual show and tell, we will be completing the mouse carving (some of us, we hope) that was started last time. Please come out and join the fun. We had two new members join us last meeting!

Fred Nahlen may have Debbe Edwards lined up for a carving seminar in March! Debbe is famous for her animal carvings and may be available the third weekend in March. A minimum of 10 carvers are needed, and the costs is $180 plus the cost of the blank/roughout. Please notify Fred (501-606-2275) as soon as possible if you are interested. This is a rare opportunity, as Debbe seldom has an open date. You can see her work and roughouts at this  website .

Fred may possibly be able to get Patty Rucker (carving, woodburning, scrimshaw, and painting) in September and says there is a remote possibility of getting Gerald Sears (but don't get your hopes up just yet!).

Be sure to invite a guest and we hope to see you on the 11th!
