New Sharpening Workshop for Women

I told you about how my Mom always said, "A woman may not have the strength to bash a beam into place, but she’ll find a way to get it there one way or another." Having the right tools and a creative mentality are key to making that happen.

Having SHARP tools is just as critical.

Shelter recently offered a Basic Tools Workshop just for women. It was a great success and we received a lot of positive feedback and comments on Facebook about how well received it was! (Don't worry—if you missed itwe'll offer it again this summer!)

Although I'm a woman and I've been in this field since before I could walk, I've forgotten how hard it is to get comfortable in the tool world when you are a woman. It shouldn't be. So we are going to make it easier by offering a series of workshops just for women.

Those of you who joined us for the Basic Tools Workshop requested the Sharpening Workshop and here it is! We will spend five hours teaching you how to sharpen everything from kitchen knives to chainsaws, axes and drill bits and how to understand the technique so that you feel comfortable sharpening nearly anything. You're welcome to bring an item that you find difficult to sharpen or one that you want to be able to sharpen on your own. We'll give you the skills to do it.

The workshop will be Saturday, March 17
(Happy St. Patrick's Day)
