I am #44 on the waiting list for Probationary membership into the Guild. Hopefully I will have a table next year.

I was wondering ... what does Guild Membership actually do for a maker or member?

You can have a table at the Guild Show, you can use the Guild logo in your advertising, you can be listed on their web page and you can be in the Guild Section of tables at the Blade Show.

Also, you get a badge and a Newsletter.

There was a time it was a big deal to be in the Guild. When I first got into custom knives as a dealer. The second question I was asked was "is the maker a memeber?". I can't remember the last time someone asked me that.

Bob, too bad the show isn't in New Orleans again, you would get a table at this years show.

They were short over 100 tables last year from the previous year.

I have faith that there are like minded individuals like myself that can make it mean something again. I believe professional organizations are essential to any field, and should be a source of information, standards and cohesiveness.
