Welcome to the South Saskatchewan Woodturners Guild
The South Saskatchewan Woodturners Guild meets on the third Tuesday of every month. We do take a summer break July & August. While meetings generally begin at 7:00 p.m. St Mary’s Parish Hall, 2020 Winnipeg St. meetings occasionally are held at other locations. During the covid crisis some meetings will be held online using ZOOM, check your emails for more information or email SSWGuild@gmail.com.
We have added a new menu item ‘Affiliates’. These organizations support SSWG members with discounts and contributions to our major events. Have a look.
We will be meeting Dec. 12th, St. Mary’s Parish Hall – 2020 Winnipeg St. Regina
More information will be sent by email for the meeting.
The November meeting we had two great presentations by Cynthia and Larry Mack on “Beyond a Bowl from a Board” and from Dale Lowe and Denis Beauchesne “From a Tree to A Bowel”. The Video of the presentations will be added to the Event Menu next week.
