  • Carving in McKinney Texas

    I do enjoy my springtime visit to Wylie, Texas. This visit not only allows visits with the McKinney Woodcarving Group ; but I get to attend the Texas Woodcarvers Guild show in Grapevine ~ scheduled for next weekend.

    The Mckinney "Club" is sponsored by the City of McKinney Recreation Department and meets at the Senior Recreation Center. The Center has several large meeting rooms, swimming pool, exercise room, billiards room, library, video lending library, and dining area. Classes are held in dance, painting, sewing, woodcarving and other activities. The Seniors of McKinney get all of this for the annual fee of $5.00. Since Diana and I do not reside there the fee doubles to $10.00.

    The Woodcarving group is unique in that there are no dues (just annual fee above), no officers, no minutes, no membership. All of this and they average 25 in attendance each Friday morning (8:30 to noon). Most of the members are relatively new to woodcarving and concentrate in a single area depending on more advanced members for assistance. I spent most of my morning working with a novice doing a bird carving rather than my white-tail doe.

    Wow!..........I guess a fellow would get his money's worth in McKinney for sure. I envy you Paul, ...sure wish there was a facility like that around here. Shoveling snow seems to be the biggest form of recreation here in Doctor's Enjoy your visit
    If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

      Texas State Woodcarving Spring Round up and Championship Show will be in Cleburne Texas Apr 1 though the 7.. It is put on by the Texas Woodcarvers Guild. It is always a great show with many Carving Seminars. If your look for a fun week of carving its always been worth the trip. Cleburne south of the Dallas, Fort Worth area.
