WOW! What a weekend! We would like to thank all of you for coming to our Hand Tool Event & Open Day Weekend!
We were so overwhelmed by the effort that many people put into it…the demonstrators, the tool sellers and of course the spectators who all seemed to enjoy the event very much!
There was nothing better than seeing so many happy people walking around holding newly purchased items, a sausage in their hand and hopefully with a wealth of newly acquired knowledge from the demonstrations.
Congratulations to our raffle winners:
Pascale for winning 1st prize – Perch Stool Course
Gerald for 2nd prize – 2 planks of Californian Redwood
Scott for 3rd prize – a box of tools from our tool sellers!
We hope to see you at the next one in 2020!
