“Empty Bowls”

The Allied Arts Gallery is hosting an event to raise money for the Tri-Cities Food Bank; this event
promotes awareness of hunger in the community.  Empty Bowls works through the
donations of local artists.  The gallery is asking that local artists donate handmade bowls of any media. 
The bowls will be sold at the gallery in February of 2021.  Bowls can be delivered to the
gallery in January.  The gallery, as of now, has restricted hours---Tues through Sat from
noon to 4 pm.  For questions contact Emma Barnes at 509-943-9815 or

This event provides an opportunity for members of the MCW to have an impact on our local community.


Topic: MCWT annual challenge

I asked Pat Miller if he would be kind and select this year’s annual challenge. 
After careful and deliberate thought, Pat and Karen selected a rolling pin for the 2020 challenge.
Pat shared that this project could be done quickly or could take a lot of time.
It can be made of plain or premium wood and can incorporate a multitude of enhancements or
it can be strictly functional. It could be something the maker keeps, gives as a present or donates to the club. The unveiling will be at the December meeting.

I reached into the pot and drew the monthly challenge for October. It is “drink ware.”

Meet the Woodturner

Meet the Woodturner is a meeting which guest woodturners from all over the world join us to share their
stories and journeys throught their woodturning careers. The meeting is hosted by Pat Carroll with assistance from:

  • Chloe Carroll (The Boss), looks after all administration and keeps everybody informed and
    will try to help with any issues that crop up.Helen Bailey, (Lady H.), is our technical advisor, constantly
    filling the chat box with information discussed within the meeting or in response to an email query.

Currently we are using Zoom as the broadcasting platform, these meetings are very well prepared and
delivered to a live audience in a format which is fully interactive. While Pat interviews
the guest Chloe and Helen are hard at work in the background resolving issues and answering questions.
