SW Region Meeting on June 23rd
Austin Reale’s Shop
7153 58th St.
Pinellas Park, FL

Austin Reale, one of our newer members, has invited us to meet at his
shop. As a first-time host, everyone is urged to bring a tool for
Austin’s shop!

Austin says:
“I should have plenty of materials for
everyone to make railroad twist knives, and a stand for each knife.

The Director of Florida Craft Arts will be attending the meeting.
Florida Craft Arts is a statewide art galley organization that is
interested in checking out FABA blacksmiths for consideration in their
galleries, newsletters, publications, amongst other things. This
should be a great way for our Smith’s to get free publicity, and even
space in one of their high-end galleries! So anyone who is interested
should bring photos and/or samples of their work. I will be giving
them time to speak at the event, as they will likely be able to
explain better than I can.

I will be able to provide drinks, water, and disposable plates. Bring
a dish to share. We don’t have a lot of seating, so bring your
folding chair too. The workshop is 1200 square feet and should be able
to accommodate a well sized crowd.

I can also do a mig welding demo with two people at a time, as I have
three welding hoods.”
