Reaching Out Events

Again this year the CVWG was invited and did participate in two events to share the craft of woodturning. On February 8th we had a table set up at the Dunn Co. Historical Society “Frost Fair” in Menomonie. Turned items were for sale and the proceeds were donated to The Bridge to Hope, a domestic violence program that serves Dunn and Pepin Counties.

On February 29th we had a table set up at the Chippewa Valley Museum for the “Fiber Arts and Folk Life Festival” event. Turned items were also for sale and the proceeds were donated to Bolton Refuge House, also a domestic violence program that serves Eau Claire, Jackson and Buffalo Counties.

Both events furthered the introduction and outreach education of woodturning. For a few who expressed an interest in wanting to learn more about our craft were invited to our Guild meetings and learned the benefits of becoming a member. I do expect to see some new people at our upcoming meetings.

The CVWG is also on the agenda again for the Chippewa Valley Museum 4th of July annual family event. I would also like to note that our table sat next to the Western Wisconsin Wood Carvers Guild, a friendly group that do create significantly fewer wood chips.
Be aware of other like events that you might be willing to take the lead by contacting the organizing person and participating in the event on behalf of the CVWG.
