Next Meeting: 08/03/2019
Luthiers' Wood Sale & Swap Meet!

The SIMSCal meeting scheduled for Saturday, August 3rd, is now turning into a wood sale / luthiers' swap meet.  Time to clear out the clutter in your workshop, and come ready to buy, sell, and trade your goods with other instrument makers.  Wood, tools, hardware, parts, jigs – it's all fair game!

Please note the earlier start time, and new location:

Date:  Saturday, August 3, 2019
Time:  10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Location:  Eric Nichols' house, 250 N Live Oak Ave, Glendora CA  91741
If you get lost:  Call Eric at ‭(714) 319-9909‬

We will rent some tables for folks to lay out their wares.  This is an outdoor event, so grab your hat and sunscreen.  We will have a few pop-up canopies set up for shade, as well.  And if you're here around lunch time, we'll order a six-foot sub and some drinks to share.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Upcoming Meetings (2019)
