SAPFM members, we have an opportunity to demonstrate at Maryland Historical Society's Colonial Market Day on 27 July.  This event appears to provide the type of outreach to the public that we discussed at our recent chapter meeting. The event will be held at 201 West Monument Street in Baltimore, MD.  You can read more about the event here: https://www.mdhs.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=411 and here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/MarylandHistory/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10156553701904935

If we have re-enactors among us we can setup outside and do demonstrators there.  I've committed to setting up inside with a more static representation, though I plan to bring my Moravian-style workbench and tools so we can still draw folks in.  Here's what we'll need for the event:

  • We need experienced furniture makers who can engage other woodworkers in conversation and describe what SAPFM is, how it can help them, and how they can help SAPFM. We will have props to help you out.
  • We need you to bring projects (preferably small furniture and accessories) that you have built or that you are working on, that will stimulate the furniture building desires of other attendees. The public will be interested in what inspired you to build the pieces, where you got your designs and how you built and finished them.
  • We need craftsmen and women who can demonstrate the construction and decorating skills and tools involved in the creation of period furniture. If you can describe verbally what you are doing and why you are doing it, that is even better, but far from necessary. If you can point out that the skills you have acquired are also applicable to forms and stiles of woodworking beyond the particular period that is your main interest, all the better.
  • We need people who can talk about woodworking tools, and they don’t have to be hand tools. However, if you want to demonstrate techniques using a slider or combo jointer/planer, you’ll need to negotiate that with the Felder crew who will be right next to us. If you can contrast and compare doing specific woodworking tasks using either power tools or hand tools, you will be able to engage a wider audience. We don’t want to give the impression that there is only one valid method to create a given detail or form.
We would also appreciate a little help handing out brochures, collecting contact information, setting up our booth, benches and other exhibits, and taking them down again at the end of the event. Ideally we'll have 2 to 3 representatives so we can give each other breaks and speak with multiple folks at the same time.  Please send an email to csapfm@gmail.com if you're able to help represent SAPFM, and let me know if you're interested in setting up among the re-enactors (and if so, will you bring a bench or need the Moravian).

Member events / Del-Val and Chesapeake Chapters - Hearne Hardwoods Open House
« Last post by wrduffield on July 04, 2019, 06:19:27 PM »

We have informed Angela at Hearne Hardwoods that the Del-Val and Chesapeake SAPFM Chapters will be participating in their Open House again this fall, as we have done for several years. She and the rest of the Hearne staff are pleased, and are welcoming our joining them.


https://www.hearnehardwoods.com/save-the-dates-for-the-2019-hearne-hardwoods-open-house/


If you want to join us, please post the dates on your calendar, Friday, Oct 4 and Saturday, Oct 5.

We need experienced furniture makers who can engage other woodworkers in conversation and describe what SAPFM is, how it can help them, and how they can help SAPFM. We will have props to help you out.

The Open House is not all about promoting SAPFM. You can enjoy watching the Hearne bandsaw, talking with and learning from the other exhibiters, listening to the live music, sampling the food, and also drooling over shopping for that special wood for your next project. We should be able to help you find it and load it into my your truck.


More information will be shared as the date approaches this fall. Let me know if you think you can participate, and how you might contribute to our effort. We understand most people aren't able to commit the full 2 days to the event, and we would be just as pleased to have our volunteers come for a single day or even half a day.

David:


Thank you for asking about permissions for use of SAPFM printed materials. Yes you may copy and use the article as you described, but I have sent you another pdf copy which includes a statement of our copyright, as well as a pointer to the SAPFM.org website. Please use the new copy. And pease encourage your guild members to joint SAPFM so that they can regularly receive valuable articles.


We miss you in Michigan! Please stay well in NC.

I also belong to a woodworking group in North Carolina that is principally geared toward education. There is an article in the "American Period Furniture" publication that I would like to copy and distribute among our members. The article is by Rob Millard and is about photographing furniture. Do I need authorization from SAPFM to allow the use and distribution of this article?
