June 4th - TWA June Shop Crawl

Many members have expressed an interest in continuing the tradition of a TWA Shop Crawl, visiting member’s shops on a Saturday. Considerations in planning the event include selecting shops within a specific geographic area, shops with different characteristics, and identifying willing hosts.The Program Committee has arranged  a June Shop Crawl for Saturday, June 4th. This one will feature 3 members’ shops in the North Hills/Capital Blvd area in the morning, and 3 shops in the North Raleigh area north of I-540 in the afternoon. We will gather at the Klingspor parking lot in the morning and car pool to the first three shops, then return for lunch and resume the tour with the North Raleigh shops after lunch. Further details and directions will be posted and there will be a signup sheet at the April and May meetings.
