Saturday September 15, 2018 CarveIn

Shelburne Farms Harvest Festival

Shelburne, Vermont


Our September CarveIn was held at the Shelburne Farms Harvest Festival. When we arrived, they had set up a few more tables for us than in the past, but soon members arrived and we had no problems filling all the tables with carvings. Of course one of the "perks" of the Festival is the food available. Matt made sure he headed for the Bakery as soon as he arrived and returned with fresh baked Bread and Shelburne Farms Smoked Cheese for lunch, as did many other Carvers. Throughout the morning the 9 carvers at our table worked on a number of projects, and spent time talking with others about woodcarving. Quite a few picked up information about the Club, and MDI catalogs to help them get started in carving. When not carving, we had a chance to see the other attractions in the Festival. By afternoon, it was getting quite warm for an Autumn day, but the crowds continued off and on throughout the day and kept us busy. The Raptor display right outside our area helped bring people to our table. Once again, a very good Festival, and time to share Woodcarving.

We hope to see you at the CarveIn and Annual Meeting, it's a great place to spend a nice fall day.


The Green Mountain Wood Carvers was organized about 55 years ago by Collise Brown from Waterville Vermont to bring together people interested in the art of wood carving. At present, we have about 75 members from Vermont as well as other states across New England.

Members of the club meet the second Saturday of each month for a "Carve-In". The Carve-Ins' are held at members houses and shops across the state, and provide an opportunity for members to gather, work on a projects and share ideas. In addition to our monthly Carve-Ins, each August, the Club plans a week long series of events including a carving class, and our Annual August Show and Sale held in Waterbury Vermont.

You don't need to be an accomplished carver to join the GMWC, our members range from first time carvers to professional carvers. Members work in all aspects of wood carving including relief, chip, caricatures, birds and wild fowl. Are members are always willing to help new carvers get started.
