Default Activity in the New England Area?

Hello,

I was looking in the area for activities of the local clubs as some of you have suggested. I wanted to get my sister-in-law involved more, get different aspects of turning from different folks. It seems like this sub-section of the forums is quiet. No announcements here. Makes it hard when there is no activity, and our local woodcraft is 1.5 hours away.
So what is going on New England?

Things are kind of lonely up heah in Maine. Only a couple of folks I know. Distance makes it somewhat difficult for me to travel much south of Portland. Looks like you're about 3.5 hours south of me.

Regards,
Michael

I have noticed that in this area. Everyone is so far away from each other. Makes it hard to do anything. Not to mention for a high school student (sister-in-law) who works, does sports, college prep, regular school work and then her senior project. Just plain out lack of time to travel. The nice thing is the craftsman fair is 5 min down the road but that is once a year for a week. So again quiet here in New England!

Shh - don't say that too loudly. We don't want a bunch of people moving here and spoiling the peace and quiet we have.

What IS her senior project? Anything we can help with long distance? If an International group can be of help, certainly those of us more local might be.

Michael

New Guy

It feel into the introduction forum here.

She is doing her senior project on woodturning. Got her down to just turning a couple of bowls, natural edge bowls, pens, and bottle stoppers, and now some extra stuff that was donated by one of the company's.

I am near Boston I have not heard much about IAP things going on around here. I am president of a general turning club, Association of Revolutionary Turners.
Let me know if you get anything going, IAP wise. I am glad to help[ your sister-in-law with whatever I can.

Please, be more specific what your sister-in-law needs for her senior project after all you have done for her.

Better yet, let HER join in on the conversation. All of my nieces are pretty internet conversant and can quite easily express their needs.

Again, what happens to all the donations after the Senior Project?
