Topic tags/keywords: pen turning

I am not a pen turner nor do I ever expect to be, but whatever happened to the Pen Turners swap box? It was good to see the map of the different places the “box” made it to and get the reports from the recepients before they sent it on it’s merry way. Pen turners report!

I think the Swap is just taking a break. It was a lot of work for the organizers.

Hey Lumberjocks,

Ms Debbie P brought my attention to this message, I organized the first few pen swaps.

I’ve got a huge box of materials to get another one going, but due to some major changes around here I don’t have the time to facilitate another swap.

I’ll be glad to send the box on to someone who would be willing to organize another swap. Let me know if anyone is interested, I’d give first dibs to one of the people that were in the first few swaps.

The trades are a blast, let me know if someone wants to take up the torch!
