Our Community mission is to foster strong relationships among guild members, colleagues and the community through social events, such as an annual picnic and swap meet and a holiday party, and through events with other guilds such as the Gathering of the Guilds show.

We encourage inter-guild activities and many of our members are also members of other regional and national guilds and professional organizations.

We also encourage the metals-curious public to attend one of our monthly guild meetings and presentations on the Third Tuesday of each month to see what we’re all about and decide if membership is right for you.

We also provide numerous opportunities for our members to get involved in charitable giving around the region, including our work with the CASA Beads project (link to Casa page), and other fundraisers, such as our recent efforts to gather warm clothes and blankets for Transition Projects.
