Meetings

Monthly Meeting Second Saturday of the Month

The 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 a couple of meetings before we ask that you join the club if you wish to keep coming. Arrival time starts at 9:30 AM, either in person or via Zoom. To help the meeting be successful, please plan to also take part in the “Show N Tell” portion. 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.

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
