SAPFM P&T Fall 2019Pins & Tales is published quarterly by The Society of American Period Furniture Makers and is one of the many benefits of SAPFM membership.

We are pleased to present the Winter 2019 issue of Pins & Tales, the SAPFM e-Magazine.

As we close out 2019 there is a lot to look forward to in 2020. This issue of our newsletter looks back at some of the high points of 2019, in particular the hosts of the SAPFM mid-year conference the Greenville Woodworkers Guild of Greenville, South Carolina, news from several of our active regional chapters, and an exhibit in Tennessee featuring SAPFM members.

Looking forward to the new year, there is still time to register for the annual SAPFM Cartouche banquet and the Williamsburg "Working Wood in the 18th Century". Look for the links in the newsletter and join us in Williamsburg. The annual SAPFM members meeting will also be held in Williamsburg on Thursday, January 16, 2020. We also take a look at an exciting new event to be held at Winterthur this spring, and a new woodworking school opening in Maine. The school is the work of long-time SAPFM member William Brown and several past Cartouche award recipients are on the schedule as instructors.

You will also find an article about how the Cartouche award process works and an introduction to the life and work of the 2020 recipient Tony Kubalak. The Pins & Tails team wishes all of you the best for the coming year. We're looking forward to providing you with news, updates and articles about the finest furniture ever made along with methods for making it today.
