North Alabama Woodcarvers Association - NAWA
Congratulations to all carvers and exhibitors on another
successful Show and Competition.
NAWA is a community of woodcarvers located in Huntsville, Alabama in the heart of the Tennessee Valley. We are passionate about promoting the love of carving, wood sculpting, whittling, and wood burning as an art and a hobby. We offer free classes in basic woodcarving, chip carving, and relief carving and hold an annual show and competition at the historic Round House in downtown Huntsville. Woodcarving is not difficult to learn, the tools to begin are not expensive, and we believe it will give you a lifetime of pleasure. We hope you will stay a while, explore our website, and join us soon at a monthly meeting, an Open Carving Session, a woodcarving class, or you can write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

November 2nd and 3rd, NAWA hosted yet another outstanding woodcarving show and competition. Thanks to Sandra Horn, the Show Chairperson, her husband Tom Horn, our sponsor Mac Proffitt of Smokey Mountain Woodcarvers, and all of the other club members who worked tirelessly to make the show such a success. Until you have been part of such an undertaking, it is hard to appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into making this such a great annual event Again this year, we auctioned off 3 trees laden with handmade wooden ornaments, donated by our members. This year, we added a Silent Auction for 3 wreaths also adorned with handmade ornaments as well as a beautiful set of the 12 Days of Christmas ornaments. Generous donations of door prizes from Smokey Mountain Woodcarvers and a number of carvers, both members and non-member exhibitors, not to mention Mac's jokes, added to the fun of the Saturday night banquet.
The Charlotte Woodcarvers Club in Charlotte, NC will be having their annual show on February 22nd and 23rd, 2014. Please go here to read all about it.
