Roger Stegall, of Mayflower, placed second and fourth in the Santa category of the Caricature Carvers of America 2011 competition! And he also got second in single human figure over ten inches and third in roughout! Way to go Roger! Here is the link to announced winners and I will post pictures as soon as I find some! Or maybe someone could persuade Roger to bring them by to one of the meetings?

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!

September Meeting!

September Meeting Saturday, Sept.10, 2011 9:00AM  First Electric Building, Jacksonville, AR

Welcome back! As the long hot summer winds down, it is time to turn our thoughts to football, cookouts, and, yes, woodcarving! We look forward to seeing everyone, hearing of their adventures (real and otherwise) during the recess, and admiring their works of art created in the meantime!
     Our proposed program is to be something a bit different, presented by a "Mystery Artist".... I have been sworn to secrecy, but am authorized to ask everyone to bring a sharp detail knife (or a regular X-Acto knife) for the project! I can say, with some confidence, that you will enjoy the exercise, which I believe is simple enough for even me!

Please plan to join us, and bring a friend interested in carving, if possible We'll see you on the 10th!
