Woodworking Show and Sale
Heads Up Everyone!
Artistry in Wood, the
2019 Show and Sale,
scheduled for April 13th and 14th
New Location! The Italian Club, 2148 Connaught St (13th Ave
As usual our Regina Whittlers and Woodcarvers are working
along with the South Saskatchewan Woodturners Guild. Linda
Anderson, Herb Klassen, Tim Caswell, Sharon Bender, Bill
Dearborn and Peter Dielschneider from RWW and Larry Mack and
Andre LeRuyet from SSWTG are the planning team for the Show.
We are very pleased to have booked the Italian Club as our
location. It is totally accessible, has excellent parking,
plenty of display space and will cater our Saturday night
banquet in the same location.
If you haven’t already done so, put April 13th and 14th into
your datebook right now – and plan to be there -- having a
display table or sharing one, helping out with
demonstrations, donating to the Penny Parade, attending the
banquet or simply enjoying yourself wandering through all
the great displays.
If you want to display or sell, you can book your table now.
Display tables cost $25 and sales tables are $35.
If you feel that you don’t have many carvings to display,
ask someone to share a table with you. It’s a lot easier to
share a table with another carver (or two) who will take
turns being present at the table. You will have time to work
on carving while you are watching your table and chatting
with people who come by.
If you are one of our newer carvers and do not feel you have
many carvings to display, please let Herb, the Registrar,
know that you are looking to share a table. The planning
team will be glad to help everyone have a display.
Please fill out your table registration form as soon as
possible and give/mail it to Herb.
Buy your Banquet tickets at the same time.
Banquet tickets will be $30 for a roast beef dinner with all
The social hour is a lovely time to relax and visit with
others. The Italian Club will cater and operate the bar.
You don’t have to book a display table in order to come to
the banquet! Please contact Herb if you want tickets. Please
feel free to bring family or friends to the banquet. It
would be a lovely treat for people to visit Artistry in Wood
on Saturday afternoon and then stay for the social hour and
Gift Exchange – We are encouraging those attending the
banquet to plan to bring a small piece of your art for the
gift exchange. Many of you will be familiar with the gift
exchange that we do at our Christmas party. This is even
better because the Turners also participate and bring some
lovely items. You have this advance notice so can start
working on something for the Exchange now!
Sharon Bender is organizing the carving demonstrations
This is not as difficult as it sounds! All you have to do is
sit at the demo table for an hour and work on one of your
projects. You don’t have to teach anyone. People tend to
stand and watch and oh and ah and ask things like, “How long
does it take you to do a carving?” Then they say, “I could
never do that.” Sharon will be making a schedule for those
who are willing to do a demo.
Sharon can be reached at email@example.com or
Herb Klassen is organizing the Penny Parade - where people
attending the Show buy a strip of tickets and put them in
containers set out for each item in the Penny Parade.
Members of both clubs provide the items for the Parade and
there can be all kinds of choices of attractive items to
donate or to win if your ticket is drawn at the closing of
Artistry in Wood on Sunday. The Penny Parade is very
Please consider donating a carving or other item to the
Penny Parade – a tool, a carrying case, a book, a painting,
a quilted piece, etc. Think of items that will be attractive
to anyone who attends the Show! (Re-gifting can work just
fine for the Penny Parade.)
The Penny Parade has been highly successful at previous
Shows, thanks to the quality of the items donated and the
willingness of people to buy tickets. Items for the Penny
Parade can be brought to the Tartan on Friday evening or on
Saturday morning, or you can arrange a way to give them to
Herb before that.
