Many of you might have become aware that The Furniture Institute Of Massachusetts has recently closed its doors. We have learned that the director, Phil Lowe is in poor health and is presently under hospital care. For those of you who may not be familiar with Phil, he is an accomplished furniture master, teacher and internationally acclaimed conservator who throughout the years had been commissioned to restore numerous museum quality pieces. For many years, Phil has shared his expertise with the woodworking community through numerous videos, seminars and public appearances. We wish to express our sincere appreciation for all that he has done for the woodworking community with hopes for a full and speedy recovery.
Sandra said he would appreciate cards of support. Include your personal note of encouragement and thanks for his many contributions to fine woodworking. Cards can be sent to his home address: 20 Lothrop Street, Beverly, MA 01915. Sandra said a newsletter will be sent out about the school’s disposition.
