  • Fox Chapel show in May ???

    Is Fox Chapel holding a show in May of this year? Some folks in the Village forum were talking about it.

    Tony, I just checked Facebook and the Fox Chapel page, and found the following, to take place on May 1 and 2.

    Fox Chapel Publishing will host two "housewarming" days, during which you can tour our historic office building in beautiful Lancaster County, PA! Join us for a wood carving and scroll saw demos, browse thousands of "scratch & dent" discounted books, and meet the team that publishes Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine and Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Magazine.

    As far as I know, there isn't anything else planned, such as classes or vendors, but you'd need to make a direct inquiry to verify the specifics of the event.

      Thanks, I sent them a direct email about it. Maybe they'll respond to this post or post something new.

          That would be nice! The last three were amazing.. I also realize how much work they were for the staff and all of the volunteers.

                Bill this is an old thread. There has not been a gathering in many years.

                  I think the last one was in 2016. They may have had an Open House at their new Office location since then.

                    Yup, 2016 was the last one. There was an attempt to do a simpler version, without classes, after the move, but I think COVID put paid to that.

                      You’re right Carole. I think Mindy and Bob were the glue that held this site together with magazine. Sure has changed from when I first joined it. And now, not for the better. Just my opinion.

                        We have an influx of new members joining recently. In all fairness to this site when I first joined there really was no Facebook and all of the other multiple sites. The site was really hurt when they switched to a new provider for it and the Carving site forcing the members to go elsewhere.

                          Welcome! John! From Reno NV. A long time 788 user (I'm94) I'm sure you will get many happy hours from the repairs you placed on the machine.

                          I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
