You do not have to be an expert!  Just come and have a good time with fellow women turners.  We will get you started and have fun in the process.

**************************************************************​Exciting new opportunity for women!
A new event is in the works this year in Georgia.  We will be looking for local Georgia Women turners to spend a day at a large public event showing the attendees how wood is turned on a lathe.  If you are interested please contact me (schmidgodfrey@bellsouth.net) to be added to the list.   We are still working out the details but will let you know when we have something ready to distrubute.
Added incentive is that you will be allowed to sell your work during this event with no fees or commissions!
​We will also need people to help who can answer questions from the audience who will be watching the turning.   Helper are needed and encouraged to man the demo booth.
