Past Annual Meetings

VIrtual 2021

Roy Underhill

Moses Wilder Blacksmith Shop

Because of the circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Annual Meeting for 2021 was moved to a virtual platform. There were video tours of several museums included as well as a
featured presentation by Roy Underhill of the Woodwright’s Shop.

Other presentations included Karl Schmidt of Dakota Tinworks who demonstrated making a reproduction Civil War era tin cup; Heidi Campbell-Shoaf, Director of the DAR Museum, gave a
presentation on the history of the common pin; Marshall Sheetz of the Jamestown Cooperage demonstrated how a barrel is made; and the Joiners Shop at Colonial Williamsburg gave a
wonderful demonstration of sash making.

Museum tours included Ben’s Thresher’s Mill, in Barnet, Vermont; the Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum in Sugar Creek, Ohio; and the American Precision Museum in Windsor, Vermont.

In addition there was a live “whatsit” session and an online silent auction. For those who attended the meeting it was highly praised; however we look forward to the 2022 in person
meeting in Bath, Maine, on May 18-21, 2022.
