Autumn is here!
Friday, September 17, 2010
Good morning! It’s another lovely, sunny morning here in Lewes, albeit a bit chilly. Autumn is definitely here and we will certainly be digging out the scarves and gloves before too long!
Thank you again to everyone who has signed up and who is now following us on Facebook – we now have 191 fans! But can we get to 200 before the end of September? I think so! Or, who knows, we may even get 300! Fingers crossed. I’ve had some nice comments this week about the website and how we keep you up to date with everything that’s happening, as it’s happening. That is our intention and it’s nice to know that people like what we’re doing. Also, don’t forget that we are also on Twitter.
I have also set up a discussion on Facebook, so if you have any ideas about what you’d like to see on the Woodworkers Institute, then please let me know. Maybe you’d like to see more tests, features, techniques, or unique content? If you let us know then we will do our best to implement these changes.
We are currently working on the cover for issue 220 and are almost there in terms of getting it just right. Mark is busy planning his Christmas projects for the next issue, and I am busy doing out Christmas hot stuff. All in all, it’s pretty hectic here in the office!
I am also busy contacting people for features, in the form of profiles, featured artists and tea break interviews. We have some immensely talented people lined up and I will give you more details as and when.
So, how many of you will be in your workshops turning this weekend? Are any of you put off by the colder weather? Do any if you have the luxury of a centrally heated workshop?! As always, it would be great to hear from you, so please do get in touch.
Also, our next page turner will be online soon, so if you’re looking for some top hints and tips on sanding and finishing your work, then look no further.
I hope you all have a great weekend and hope to hear from you soon.
