Tell me about Woodfest, Dennis. I don't remember hearing about it "back in the day." I'd love to more local showcases like this -- Port Townsend is the only one I've been to in western WA.

Woodfest is an annual event, Jamie, that showcases local and even regional high school wood shop students' work. Several awards are given out, donations from local building supply houses and the like.

In addition, several vendors offer many hand made items, not all being wood but most are. The organizers decided to include non-wood crafts since the 'draw' for hand crafted wood things, either flat work or turned items just isn't there, unfortunately.

This isn't a great venue for sales but it's fun to meet & greet people and promote wood turning. We usually get a few new members as a result of our presence here. I'm not sure how long its been going on but it is a sanctioned event as part of the Tulip Festival here in Skagit County. I've been a member of NWWWT for close to 13 years and we've participated every year so it's at least that old.

Interesting question; I'll see if I can find out just how long it's been running.
