Default MPG 2019 Blank LOTTO... A MUST SEE!!!

MPG 2019 Blank Lottery!




That's right! Blank Lotto!! Something New! It's fun and it's free. Well almost free....

Here's how to enter.... first go to... Midwest Penturners Gathering and register to attend.
If you've already done that, your half way there.

If you haven't heard about it, here's an updated post... Midwest Penturners Gathering - 100 Days Out
We'd love to see you there!



Now comes the hard part...

Selecting and Parting with a Blank YOU WOULD WANT TO WIN.



HERE'S HOW IT WORKS... You will Receive ONE Ticket for every blank you bring to the MPG and donate to the LOTTERY. It's that simple, just sort through that Personal Stash of Treasured Blanks (we all have one) and pick out something that you would love to win, and bring it to the check in desk at the MPG 2019.



There are no limits to how many times you can enter!
The Winner does not have to be present to win.
Lets see those Favorite Blanks, Beautiful Burls, Custom Casts, and Rare Treasures!



To get it started, I will be randomly posting pictures to this thread, of my donations to this lotto, to hopefully convince YOU to participate at the MPG 2019! Be sure to Share this with your turning groups and FB friends!


The first blank is one of my favorites... "NIGHT OPAL" on a Jr sets!


Be sure to stop back to see more blanks entered. To those attending... GOOD LUCK! to those not... here's what your missing!
I will be hosting therefore not entering to win. The MPG Staff may pick more than one winner depending on participation.

I will be adding more blanks from my personal stash as we go. Not all of them are my creations but all of them are treasured by me so I'm sure someone will be happy to win them. :)

Default Here’s Another....

Here’s another one from my personal stash somebody will be taking home. This one is a red - white -and - blue Cardistry Jr. set. I just never got around to turning it. I hope everyone coming to the MPG is digging through their blanks to enter, or somebody is going to have an easy time winning these. Check back.... more to follow!

I got up to leave for work yesterday and the car dashboard said it was -26 out. I thought this blank would be fitting for the occasion. So.... here's the next addition
from "My Personal Stash" that you could win if you come to the MPG 2019 and participate.

"Ice Age Mosaic"

from Ankrom Exotics.
Made with real Wooly Mammoth ivory cast in Alumilite resin.

Default Ancient Mars by PR Princess!

Here's the next Beautiful Blank someone will be taking home! It's an

Ancient Mars!

by our very own PR Princess!



This blank is a very hard one to find and if you don't already have one, this may be your only way to ever get one. Dawn was one of the first casting guru's to be able to produce these colored swirl blanks. Many of us loved what we were seeing and took up casting because of them. I know she was a huge inspiration in my efforts, striving to reach these results.

They were not made as easily as we have it today using a wide variety of mica pearls. Many of her blanks were the results of experiments using a wide variety of found pigments. This is one you want in your collection for that special creation.


This is a favorite of mine and I'm only parting with it to better the MPG!
Hope to see you there!

Only 58 days to go....The next MPG LOTTO blank is a....

Jeff Powell - MASTERSCROLLER blank!


For those of you who don't know Jeff... Besides being one of our very own IAP members, he is also an award winning scroll saw artist who's works have been seen around the country and has been published in several national magazines. Jeff was one of the first to pioneer and perfect the application of scroll sawing images in wood and resin.

This is another one of a kind blank you can win at the MPG! You guys are so lucky I'm in the giving mood. :)
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Come out and Participate!

Default Jr RB/FP Ringneck Pheasant

Well it wouldn't be right if I didn't include at least one feather blank set.
This is a pretubed Jr Gent Series

Ringneck Pheasant Feather set

from yours truly. I just finished this one and thought I would toss it in.

The MPG is only 51 days away!
so get those blanks ready!
