We were saddened by the loss of Jim Steadman, one of our members since 2004. Jim lost his battle with a brain tumor on October 28th. A memorial service was held on Saturday November 12 at the Watson-North Funeral Home in Winchester.


What a great seminar!!!!!!! About 35 people attended the Fall Seminar on October 22 at Cowan Artisans, Cowan, TN. The presenters, Scott Tinker, Larry Parham and Joe Getty did an outstanding job in their presentations. Everyone came away with valuable information that can be put to use in their own shops. A big thanks to the chairperson, Richard Gulley, and the seminar host, Tom Cowan, for their efforts in coordinating the event. Also to Loyd, for his TV/camera setup that allowed everyone to view exactly what was being presented and to Felix for providing the coffee and snacks. Everyone was treated to a good lunch hosted by Sernicola’s restaurant. A really good day of learning some new skills and techniques.




The carvers group was represented at the Huntsville Craft Show on November 5 and 6. Members attending included Dick Wollam, Kelton and Sylvia Garner, Sharron Wright and Steve Shores. Every member entering the “competition” portion of the show won multiple ribbons. A total of 14 ribbons were garnered by the club carvers. They represented the club in a great fashion.
The carvers normally meet on the first Saturday of each month and work on individual or group projects.


Several club members participated in the woodworking display at the Fine Arts Center during the month of October. The Fine Arts Center expresses their appreciation to all the exhibitors and to those that came and viewed all the outstanding items on display.
