23rd Annual Horn Fair on March 1 & 2, 2019

The Honourable Company of Horners will once again gather at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, Pennsylvania for our 23rd Annual Horn Fair on March 1 & 2, 2019. 

There will be no conference registration charge for attendees to include Guild and NMLRA members, as well the general public. So plan now to attend and, as in the past, all Guild members are requested to dress in period attire. Currently, major activities include:
-The Interactive Horn Workshop will have several work stations manned by Journeymen and Masters demonstrating all facets of horn work. Currently there will be stations on horn selection, horn shaping, plug turning and finishing techniques. - Journeyman and Past Guildmaster Dick Toone will be demonstrating the use of the Guild’s spring pole lathe. NMLRA representatives will have a display table to sign up new members, provide assistance and answer questions. -Journeyman Jim Leach is making the 2019, 1 of 1000 Powder Horn for the NMLRA. It will be on display at the NMLRA’s table and officially presented to the NMLRA during Saturday evening’s banquet.
