The Harrogate Show in Photos

Ian with his Lucky Dip bag wearing his trademark Turner's Cabin fleece - did you spot him?
Here at last our photographs from The North of England Wood Turning and Powertool Show, where our Christmas lucky dip proved very popular with 11 winners claiming a prize.  We still have a few goodies to give away, though, so we though the best way to finish off the dip is to say the first five people to comment on this blog post will get a prize!

All in all it was an excellent show with lots going on, and lots to buy from the likes of Richard Sorby, Ashley Isles, Chestnut, Simon Hope and many more! We also sorted out a supplier of our very own wood turning smocks (watch this space!). We had a thoroughly enjoyable time meeting with many Facebook and Forum friends - can't wait for the next show now!

We hope you enjoy looking through the snaps, and if you want to share this post on Facebook, please click 'Like' in the top left corner of this page. All photos by Stacey Clarke of Turner's Cabin.
