Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Seattle area, and resultant restrictions on public meetings, the Seattle Woodturners organization has suspended all group activities that involve physically gathering together, including membership meetings, sawdust sessions and Wood Rat events. Instead, we will be hosting our monthly meetings virtually, using the Zoom teleconferencing capability. In addition, special virtual events may be held as possible. Details will be on the calendar page on this website, in the monthly newsletter, and in emails to members.
Our monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday* of every month 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, at the VFW facility in Redmond. See the table below for a list of our upcoming monthly meetings.
- Meetings FAQ describes our monthly meeting format, driving directions, and much more.
