Eric and Steve normally I would fully agree But Mindy's sleeves were snug and with pen making on a mandrel there really is nothing rotating that would snag a bracelet that was far away from the turning. The red one was paper.
Loose sleeves near the mandrel on the other hand would be real cause for concern.
Now if she was turning a Bowl on a chuck whole nother story.

I use a lathe for sanding and am cautious of what I wear. However I drop pieces frequently and then bend over to pick them up. I had to get rid of my hippie long hairdo. Check out this tragic accident: 'A TRUE TRAGEDY': Yale student asphyxiated in lathe accident at chemistry lab, medical examiner rules

One of my many hats at National Lab where I work is managing a machine shop.
The fall out from the Yale tragedy has been significant. All of our machinery must now have an easily accessible emergency stop button.
Unfortunately she made several bad decisions that resulted in her demise. She was in the shop by herself late at night, long hair with no hairnet. I am not sure what Yale's policies were regarding shop access and usage rules but no one should ever work around machinery without the appropriate precautions.
This tragedy was a wakeup call for many people. Horrible things can happen in an instance.

Brian I am guilty of that when I use my Mac Mop. I now turn of the motor Before I bend over.

Here you go Patte - Shows | The Woodworking Shows

Crafts Supplies USA usually has a big wood turning equipment display going and has pen turning sessions for beginners.

It looks like Barry Gross is going to be giving some demos on pen making, also.

Looks like you are closest to the Orange County show on the 1st of November.
