Good friend of the +Modern Woodworkers Association, +Matthew Teague, announced he was leaving the Editor's desk at Popular Woodworking Magazine on December 18, 2012. We were saddened to see Matthew leave, as were most people I know who knew him. We wish him the best on his future projects and hope we can stay in touch as he continues his great woodworking journey.

I late December, +Megan Fitzpatrick was named as the new Editor at Popular Woodworking Magazine. Megan is also a great friend of the Modern Woodworkers Association (and a great editor). To Megan, we wish the sincerest congratulations on a well deserved promotion.

To celebrate her new position and discuss her plans for the magazine and her woodworking, we will be having Megan on the MWA Podcast as our guest for episode #22. It will be recorded live at about 9:00 pm Eastern on Wednesday, January 9th, and can we watched live on the MWA Youtube Channel, the #MWALive page on our site or the Modern Woodworkers Association Google+ Page. If you have questions for Megan before or during the show, please comment here or tweet them using the #MWALive hashtag.
Though we've had this interview setup for a bit over a week, we were scooped in interviewing Megan by another good friend, +Kari Hultman, the Village Carpenter. You can read Kari's full interview with Megan here on the Village Carpenter site.

We encourage you to check out Kari's interview as we're using it as a primer for our own, and will try not to duplicate too much. Also, Kari's is a fantastic blog. We recommend that it's always read, even when Megan is not being interviewed.
