About Totally Turning

The AWA (Adirondack Woodturners Association) is a Special Interest Group (woodturning) of the Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA). The NWA has presented a woodworking show titled SHOWCASE in Saratoga Springs, New York for the past 27 years. SHOWCASE draws about 6000 woodworking attendees. It provides an Instant Gallery of roughly 500 pieces of fine woodworking including woodturning, presents continuous classes on woodworking, offers about 70 woodworking vendors (including many related to woodturning), and displays continuous demonstrations of woodturning, woodcarving, scrollsawing, and lumbering. Door prizes, raffles, and many give-aways make it an exciting two days of woodworking.

On March 30 & 31, 2019 the Adirondack Woodturners Association will present Totally Turning 2019 in the same location as SHOWCASE. Every Totally Turning registrant will have full access to BOTH the woodturning rotations of Totally Turning 2019 and to all of SHOWCASE 2019. Instant Gallery pieces brought by Totally Turning registrants will be a part of the Instant Gallery of Showcase and as such will be viewed by about 4000 of the general public in addition to the woodturners of Totally Turning 2019.

By moving Totally Turning out of the downtown Albany area and in to the Saratoga Springs City Center, the event has a bigger Instant Gallery, a much larger vendors area, far more total rotations, a host hotel attached to the site, and many convenient places to eat. Spring time in Saratoga Springs is wonderful. The price has remained the same with far more to do and see over the two days. Totally Turning 2019 and Showcase 2019 will be held concurrently at the Saratoga Springs City Center and the adjoining Saratoga Hilton Hotel.
