Come and join the SAW Virtual Coffee Shop!

Opening times in the near future: Friday (3rd April) 10:30am and 7:30pm, Saturday & Sunday at 2:30pm , for about an hour each time. Next week's times to be published shortly.

We are running Zoom meetings at the above times, which I like to call a 'Virtual Coffee Shop', to allow members to prepare for joining the SAW Club night meetings. Drop in, (with your own coffee :-) and drop out as you wish. If you have any woodturning related questions, there may be a member in the shop who can answer them. Or if you have turned something and would like to show it off, hold it up to you camera...

If you are new to Zoom, please join in the 'Virtual Coffee Shop' at one of the times above, by clicking on the big yellow button below, and following the instructions. If you need help, or have a problem, then call Jennie (phone number on the last page of the Newsletter)

If you have already tried Zoom, you will be welcome to join us in the 'Virtual Coffee Shop', for a chat about what you have done, what you thought you might do, or just to listen to what others have done.

(Username and password are the same as for the Newsletter, when asked)
