Happy Fall Y’all

October should be a good and busy month. We begin with great fall weather, what a joy it is.
The Waxhaw Autumn Treasures festival is Saturday and Sunday, October 9 and 10. Richard DiFranco is in charge of that event, but we can use as many as can help. No one is expected to attend the whole thing, but come when you can and stay as long as you can. Richard will appreciate your help, and it will benefit the club.
The Matthews Farmer’s Market has invited us back on the 30th. Keep that date open as it is an opportunity to spread the word about carving. It should be a very pleasant time carving under the tent and spreading the word about our hobby. We will be able to hand out the 2022 Showcase flier as well. Great opportunity.
Again, we continue to have members return Tuesdays. If you can, please join us on Tuesday anytime from 9am to 6pm. We have novice to advanced carvers, young to old, carving everything from bark houses to caricatures to chip carvings and birds. The conversation is inviting as well. Fun by all.
Speaking about birds, Lee Servatius held a Chickadee carving class in September. You will see more information and photos later in this edition. I had fun and learned a lot. Thanks Lee for taking the time, I think everyone enjoyed the class and learned a lot.
