The June meeting is on and I will be the demonstrator - demoing steampunk penny pen (see below). This will be our first time going virtual with the meeting and we decided to allow everyone that want to attend to attend (well up to 100 - but cannot see getting to that number).

This will be a Zoom meeting and if interested I will invite you. Either email me at chicagopenturners@yahoo.com (and I will confirm) or PM me with your email address so I can send an invite. I will start the meeting one hour early to allow for testing the connection and socializing. See you there.

2020 – Dates are set
June 20 - Open
August 15 - Open
October 17 - Open
December 19 - Open

All meetings are from 10 am - 1 pm - WILL BE VIRTUAL STARTING AT 9
Normal Location:
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware
139 South Weber Road
Bolingbrook, IL 60490

December (2020) Christmas Challenge:
A total of $25 (kit and blank). Make the best pen you can, and the winner gets the glory (and the prizes). I encourage to use some technique you either learned or were inspired to try. We will vote as a group. This year’s winner was a nice watch parts pen.

Tips and Tricks:
Please bring your tips and tricks for all of us to share and learn. Last month we had a few but always looking for more. Even if small – it might be something someone else is struggling with.

Show and Tell:
Please bring any pens you either loved making and just want to show off / are having trouble with a techniques and want help / want feedback on / or just want to put on a table. This will be an open forum to help each other. You will find two things out – one helping others is fun and two you know more than you think you do and others will benefit.

Looking for demonstrators and / or topics. If you have any interest in doing a demo email me. Also if you have suggestions for a demo you would like to see email me back.

Thanks,
Mark

If you haven’t seen this process done, you will want to join in. It can be used as a background for many clear cast pens with objects. Besides.... it’s free and you don’t have to leave your house!

Not to mention... Marks very entertaining!

The invitation went out to all those that asked to be invited. Please check your email. Still time - just pm me an email address and I will send you the invite. At this point we sent about 40 invites out so it should be a good meeting.
