SOUTHERN PIEDMONT WOODTURNERS

Invite you to enjoy an evening with

 

JERRY MEASIMER 

“MINI HATS”

 

Tuesday’s demonstrator will be our own Jerry Measimer. Jerry is a lifetime member and past president who just recently demonstrated at the National AAW Symposium. Jerry will be turning a mini hat. Making a mini hat is a nice introduction into the world of hat turning as it requires a whole lot less of a log, but still requires an inspirational amount of skill. Jerry’s demo’s are always filled with insight, a little awe, and plenty of humor.
