Juried In

Bill Grumbine, Kutztown PA
>Good evening all

I have just returned from my first formal jurying process, and I am now officially a juried member of the PA Guild of Craftsmen. I have been involved in several show juries in the past, some of which I think juried my wallet for the entry fee more than anything, but this is my first with no immediate result other than a piece of paper I can hang on the wall. I am only juried in the local chapter, and only in turning. If I want to be juried state wide or for furniture, that is another process altogether.

Not only did I get into the guild, but I am pretty sure I landed a commission to build a blanket chest for another artist who wants to paint it for her son who is getting married in the spring. Now that is some real business!
