Who came to our 2012 Carving Show
the greatest distance?
Angie & Claude Champine!
Recovering from surgery Claude’s family gave him
a laptop to find something to do while recuperating.
While surfing the Internet he found YouTube, then
woodcarving and then Arleen Zomer’s YouTube site.
Arleen had her videos of carving and it struck
Claude’s interest and he was hooked.
Then they saw her ad for the LCWC Show and
found that Arleen was going to be attending. With that
they began planning a trip from their home in
Michigan to our show. After a 10 hour drive they
arrived in Lancaster Pa and at the show they met their
new friend Arleen Zomer. They had a great time
talking about her carvings and both Claude and his
wife Angie spent the entire day Saturday at the show.
As they were exiting the show Pete happened to see
them and asked if they were returning Sunday and
they had not planned to do that, Pete said, “Just wait
one minute!” and returned with 2 passes for the
Sunday event and they were so excited they returned
the next day and spent another day in seminars, (we
think they may have taken most all of them) visiting
the carvers tables and of course more time with
We hope this time here in Lancaster will bring
many chips from Claude’s knife and a new and
fulfilling use of Claude’s free time.
