Our October meeting will feature a panel discussion on selling your work at art and craft shows. LSWA will have a membership recruiting booth at the upcoming Panther Creek Craft Show on Saturday, November 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you have ever thought about selling your work but you're not sure how to get started, the panel will be answering questions about selling your work at local art and craft shows. This is a great opportunity for you to learn how to prepare for selling your work if you would like to participate in the 2011 Panther Creek Craft Show next year.

Remember to bring some of your recent projects: Be sure to bring some of your recent turned projects for our Show and Tell, or Show and Ask session. This can be a completed turning, or one that you are still working on. During our Show and Tell, you will have the opportunity to show your turning to the group and tell us a little about how you turned it, what finish you used and if you encountered any challenges when turning, sanding, or finishing the piece.

Everyone in the club is interested in what you've been doing at the lathe. If you need help with a project you're working on, bring it and let's discuss it during the Show and Ask session. There is a lot of experience in the club and everyone is always happy to help.

Invite your woodturning friends: Please invite any of your woodturning friends who you think may be interested in joining our club. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (Steve) at 713-826-0046 Cell. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
