Thank you “Charlotte Woodcarvers Club” for all your support to the club and the support for all woodcarving clubs in the surrounding area. We thank Carmel Presbyterian Church and Matthews Woodcraft Store for a place to demonstrate the art of woodcarving. We also thank Charlotte Parks and Recreation for their support for our Showcase of Woodcarvings.
As our 2017 showcase is just over a month away it’s time to think about finishing your carvings and putting on that special finish. If you have not thought about entering your carving or carvings in the show, please do so and enjoy seeing your carvings alongside many others. It’s really breath taken to see your carvings in competition with others. This is also the best time to support the club with your registration and you never know, there just might be a ribbon for that carving you just finished.
2017 was a fantastic year for our club in supporting not only our club but other clubs in demonstrating the art of woodcarving. You can read about the accomplishments last year in the article 2017 Year in Review.
As we prepare ourselves for another new year, let us remember those members that left us for another carving world. We will miss our carving friends and will remember them as they were a part of our fellowship and achievements.
The first knife cut of your project is a journey you will cherish
Our 2018 Showcase is this coming weekend, February 16, 17 & 18. I am looking forward to meeting all the competing carvers, vendors and visitors for a fun filled weekend of competition and showing off our carvings to the public. All local CWC club members should be registered by Friday, February 16, 2018. This is to insure that club members will be available for Friday afternoon and Saturday morning check in as runners for those signing in for competition.
Merry Christmas Everyone
Another year has allowed our club to come together for fellowship and fun at our annual Christmas Social.
Thanks everyone for making Charlotte Woodcarvers Club a successful, enjoyable and fun filled club.
We had great participation at this year’s Christmas Social with 73 in attendance and the covered dishes were out of this world. Once again the club provided the fried chicken and desert and everyone brought a covered dish to share with others.
Merry Christmas Everyone and thanks for a great year of carving and fellowship.
Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen with this piece of wood
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
Every September and October brings us carving shows and festivals that we, as a club, try to attend by supporting local woodcarving clubs and festivals. I would like to thank all CWC members supporting these shows in Hickory NC, Greenville SC, Townsend TN, Asheville NC, Wilmington Ohio and a Festival in Waxhaw NC and Matthews NC.
