Information & Registration
The Totally Turning Overview
The Totally Turning Symposium will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 & 29, 2020. It will be held concurrently with the NWA’s Annual Woodworkers Showcase in Saratoga Springs NY. The event site will be the Saratoga Springs City Center. As in past years, there will be plenty of great demonstrations, an instant gallery, a trade show, and more. Missing will be a Saturday evening banquet. Feedback has told us that many didn’t participate or didn’t like being confined by the timing. The Totally Turning Symposium will not have a special banquet freeing the attendees to pick their own dining from the wonderful choices in Saratoga Springs.
