10 AM - 4PM Friday before the Jam or Tuesday after the Jam.
The private shear sharpening class will be at the Bonika Shears Office. (transportation from hotel can be arranged.) Learn how to sharpen shears from award winning shear expert Bonnie Megowan. You will be amazed at how easy it is to learn this lucrative and rewarding skill.
Scissor sharpening training is available on any flat hone type sharpening equipment, although the Scimech Scissor FlatHone is our specialty. The scissor sharpening training school instruction will be customized to your learning style, skill level, experience and concerns. Because of the simplicity of the Scimech clamp, the instruction level of our video and our systematic teaching system, you will learn in just eight hours. That short learning time can be verified by talking to the many sharpeners we've trained in our scissor sharpening class. If you feel you need more training, you may stay for as long as you like and practice on our shears, work with us in the field as we sharpen, come back later and practice or work in the field all at no additional charge. We also highly recommend our various tune-up clinics held throughout the year even if you are sharpening successfully. Look for additional advanced sharpening classes and seminars.
