AAW'S 34th Annual International Symposium

COVID-19 and the 2020 AAW Symposium

Due to the seriousness of COVID-19, and adhering to international, federal, and state advisories and legal impossibility mandates, the AAW Board of Directors unanimously approved the cancellation of the 2020 AAW Symposium on March 30, 2020.

Complete details about the cancellation, including process for full registration refunds and future plans, will be provided very soon. As we continue to address the impacts of this challenging situation, we thank you for your patience, understanding, flexibility, and support. We know this is disappointing for all of us, and we thank you for the notes of support we’ve received during this process.

Best wishes for health, safety, and care to each of you and to those you care about.

Drawstring Bags

The woodturning community supports Beads of Courage (BOC) by making wooden boxes to hold the beads of children with being treated for serious illnesses. In 2018, volunteers sewed 180 drawstring bags in the DIY Craft Area at the AAW Symposium. These bags provide a way for children to carry their beads to and from the hospital during treatment. At the 2020 Symposium in Louisville, we will provide the opportunity to continue this project for Beads of Courage by making drawstring bags. We will have sewing machines, material, and all supplies at the DIY Craft Area.
