Meetings

Monthly Meeting Second Saturday of the Month

Sign-in time starts at 9:30 AM. Be sure to sign into the zoom room early to get a seat with a great view. To help the meeting be successful, please plan to also take part in the “Show N Tell” portion. Just like our regular meetings, you can show your turning(s) and talk about how you produced it, the trial and errors, and of course the finish that you used on it. If you need help setting up Zoom, please phone Fred at 269-830-8934.

Coffee and woodturning Forth Wednesday Each Month

We will be having our next coffee hour get together Wednesday, April 28th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. via Zoom meeting.  We thought it would be a great time to have some our mentors introduce themselves and ask that they attend if possible. If you haven’t yet attended one of our ad hoc get togethers or a garage group this would be a great opportunity to find out what they are all about. The link to the meeting will be sent out shortly before 10 a.m. the day of the coffee hour. Your welcome to bring show n tell items to share or just your thoughts regarding woodturning in general. Questions are always welcome.  We will have a few short updates on what’s happening with our club and more.  We are looking forward to seeing those of you that can attend.  Keep on turning…Your Leadership Team

For the near future meetings will be held through Zoom (see above). Usually club meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month at the Northwest United Methodist Church, 3140 N. 3rd St., Kalamazoo (Oshtemo) MI 49009 . You are welcome to attend as a guest for 2 meetings before we ask that you join the club if you wish to keep coming.

Meetings include a one hour social hour followed usually by a short business session, a show-and-tell session and finally a demonstration by a club member or invited speaker. Members are encouraged to bring turned forms for display on the gallery table and, if desired, presentation during the show-and-tell portion of the meeting. Pieces can also be submitted for a more formal assessment by a three-member panel that is meant to allow for a critical assessment to determine how a form may be judged at a show.

Other meetings of interest

The Grand River Turners Guild based in Grand Rapids, Michigan frequently holds demonstrations and meetings of interest to woodturners. Please visit their facebook site for more information about upcoming events. https://www.facebook.com/GRWTmichigan/
