Hi all,  Arrangements are coming together nicely for our Tidewater Chapter spring meeting via Zoom, April 9th, 10 am to 12.  In particular, I'm excited that the following folks have agreed to participate:

1363 Tidewater Yacht Marina

  • Rick Robinson ( and Jeff Ade ( - National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, who can talk endlessly about clock collecting, clocks/movements/repairs.
  • Aspen Golann who will host a question and answer session on her Eli Terry style shelf clock featured in the article "The Art and Application of Clock Imagery" - 2019 American Period Furniture. 
  • Ronnie Young (SAPFM 2016 Cartouche award winner) who will talk about his Massachusetts dwarf clock and Willard shelf clock.
  • Ben Hobbs (SAPFM 2011 Cartouche award winner) who will discuss the Thomas White tall clock.

  In preparation for the meeting, following are notes:

*  Please read Aspen's article "The Art and Application of Clock Imagery" in the 2019 American Period Furniture journal, and come to our meeting prepared with questions.
*  Looking for a good clock reference?  Check out American Clocks, An Introduction by Tom Spittler.
*  Need some inspiration?  Take a look at Colonial Williamsburg's collection.

Thank you everyone for your time.  All members are invited to the meeting, and I'll send out the Zoom link around April 1st.  To register, SAPFM members should send a request to tidewater[email protected].
