This blog is dedicated to promoting the wonderful hobby of carving. Any type, style, material or tools used. There, I said it!

Well, here we are (The Country Carvers Carving Club) at Port Farms in Waterford PA last weekend. Collectively we carved 44 pumpkins. Believe it or not we sold all of them. Left to right: Terry Pattison, Dale Docter, Dave Hummel, Hank Rafferty and Jim Fife. Missing from the photo is Gary Rafferty. We had a great time with all the kids looking over our shoulders and harking in all the parents to purchase our creations. This coming weekend we will be back at Port Farms carving the giant pumpkins left over from the big show last week. We will also be displaying our carvings for sale in the artists barn and have some regular sized carved pumpkins for sale for only $10 each.
Well we have a new carving club in Northwestern Pennsylvania. They call themselves the Country Carvers and I'm a member. Currently we have about 12 active members and hopefully more on the way. We meet every Thursday from 1 to 4 pm but we never seem to leave until after 6pm. We each take a turn hosting a meeting and seem to be having a lot of fun along the way. We are discussing having one meeting a month on a Saturday for some of the new members that have to work during the week. Our newsletter will be published on this Blog on some type of regular basis and emailed to all active members. I encourage everyone to post comments and/or photos of any project they might be working on. I will be uploading photos of members finished projects and hopefully our Totem Pole club project in the near future.
