Authenticating ...

The Blue Ridge chapter will hold its second 2022 meeting on December 3 at C.P. Johnson Lumber Co. Near Culpeper. This is a little late in the year but the opportunity was too good to miss. The full program is not set but our featured presenter will be Bob Van Dyke, owner of Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking and contributing editor of Fine Woodworking.  Doors will open at 8:30 and lunch will be provided. Chris always has great deals on hardwood whenever we meet at his yard.

Did you know that SAPFM was founded by like-minded makers who met at Colonial Williamsburg's Working Wood in the 18th Century conference? Twenty-three years later we continue to be a proud sponsor of this event, and our members look forward to seeing each other there.  This year's theme is:

A Very Good Effect: Ornamenting 18th Century Woodwork

Registration launching fall of 2022 with both in-person and virtual registration options!

Working Wood in the 18th Century celebrates its 25th year with a flourish of ornament and a gathering of craftspeople and scholars. Whether adorned with carving, inlay, marquetry, or japanning, period woodwork draws much of its enduring appeal from thoughtfully designed and well-executed ornament. Join Colonial Williamsburg staff and special guest presenters Brock Jobe, Mary May, Frank Strazza, and Jerome Bias for an exploration of the techniques, people, and stories behind this decorative splendor.

Mark your calendars; in response to popular demand, SAPFM is changing the timing of our annual conference beginning in 2023! Our next conference
After another successful demonstration in 2022, SAPFM has already been invited back to join Hearne Hardwoods for their Open House in 2023. We've participated in this event for 6 years running (2020 doesn't count!) and it's a wonderful time...those of us who've participated before look forward to it all year long.

Peach State Chapter SAPFM Meeting

Saturday, March 30, 31, and April 1, 2023 – 9:00AM

Arnie’s Home: Alpharetta (Milton), GA

This will be three day presentation by Al Breed on carving.  Al has been to our group several times over the years.  He is a Cartouche award winner from the Society of American Period Furniture  SAPFM.

Al is a great craftsman and presenter.  His programs have always be well attended at our chapter.

The details on the program have not been worked out but you should consider saving the date.  It will not be a hands on workshop but will include Al doing live work demonstrations and of course carving.

Please plan to join us for a great program and fellowship.
