April 29

Hye Heritage Festival
9:30 AM

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, April 29, 2017 in Hye, Texas. We will have forges set up and will be demonstrating to the public. If you have a forge and anvil that you can bring, that would be great. Please let us know if you plan to.

Many took the workshops with Dorothy and Lyle. In Lyle and Stan's workshop, we made fullers from sucker rod. Along these same lines, we decided that the "Trade Item" for this meeting will be decorative punch. Maybe and eye punch or possible a nose punch used for the Bulldog Bottle Opener.....

For those that don't know;
We announce "Trade Items" in the hope that members will make one of the items. At the meeting, everyone participating will draw a ticket and in the end will take someone else's item home. You will get the opportunity to tell about the item that you made.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.
