We are planning for a full complement of vendors. Previous offerings included tools, wood, sanding supplies, pen supplies, and more. Once we have confirmation, we will begin posting vendors.


Attendees and demonstrators will have the opportunity to bring several turnings to display. A review of select pieces will take place on Sunday.


One of the highlights of the weekend is the Saturday night banquet and auction. This years event will take place at the DoubleTree Hotel in Mundelein. This new venue will offer a more spacious environment and a relaxed schedule.



Dormitory style rooms are available onsite. Accommodations include both single and double occupancy. For those wanting a different option, rooms are available at nearby hotels at competitive rates.

Meals are included in the registration fee. Other than dinner on Saturday, all meals will be available in the dining hall located on the Conference Center grounds.
