Hello Texas Woodcarvers Guild (TWG) members.  Hope this newsletter finds you and your family doing well.  Many people in our country have been through many major ordeals recently as a result of the havoc that Hurricane Florence brought to many of our eastern states.  Our hearts go out to them!

With the October 1st Seminar registration fast approaching for the 2019 Texas Woodcarvers Guild (TWG) Spring Round-up, we are excited to have an excellent lineup of 22 woodcarving instructors and 6 non-carving instructors.  The Spring Round-up will once again be held in the beautiful Cleburne Conference Center in Cleburne, TX.  Many of your favorite woodcarving instructors will be back, as well as some who were not able to attend last year and one or more new instructors. We have a wide array of Seminars (classes) for you to pick from including realistic birds and animals, caricatures, relief (medium and shallow), bark carving, chip carving, carving Native American busts (both man & woman), carving in the round, as well as wood burning.  We will have beginning woodcarving classes, including beginning bark carving; so bring all your friends so that they can learn all they need to get started in this wonderful and fulfilling art hobby!  I wanted to also mention we will have a new instructor who will teach all levels of students how to carve a fish (students will have a choice of two fish), PLUS the student will have the option to “carve by hand” or to power carve their fish project.

The upcoming event dates are as follows.  Friday, April 5th is setup for the show, April 6th and 7th are the show dates.  We are happy to announce that once again we will be conducting mini-classes during the show on Saturday and Sunday.  Students can pick from Beginning Woodcarving, Beginning Cottonwood Bark Carving, Chipcarving, and Carving Christmas ornaments.   April 8th thru the 12th are the regular Seminar dates.

You will be able to sign up for carving and non-carving classes beginning midnight on October 1st.  They fill up quickly, so please register early to insure you get the classes you want.  We will have a waiting list, but it is best to register early!!

The Texas Woodcarvers Guild Board members are working hard to make this Round-up a memorable one for members and new members!  I know you will enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship!  Hope to see you there!
