Cards and well wishes are needed.

Larry Yudis, owner of The Woodcraft Shop in Bettendorf, Show Chairperson of AWC and The International Woodcarvers Congress, friend to many of the carvers around the country and beyond, is in need of some moral support.

Larry is currently having health issues and will be recuperating for an extended length of time. Due to a broken knee cap, he is currently residing in a long term care facility. Cards and well wishes are a great way for the woodcarvers to show their support .
