Hammer-In is over. It rained on Friday but Saturday and Sunday were good.

It was very satisfying to see so many new smiths and their families in attendance. Many new friendships were forged during the weekend.

Terry and Cheryl Sheridan presented many new skills that attendees could take home and try for themselves.

Thank you to all who attended. I think it was a success.


Below are a number of photographs from the weekend.





Here is a video link of Terry Sheridan and Buth Sheely during Terry's Demonstration.
