    About the SKG
    On March 27, 1996, fifteen people got together to discuss the idea of starting a local club for knifemakers. From that first meeting, the Saskatchewan Knifemakers Guild has grown to more than 50 members and includes knifemakers from across the country and in the U.S.

    The goals of the guild are simple: to promote knifemaking, provide assistance and encouragement to knifemakers, and provide a place for the social interaction of knifemakers. Our monthly meetings feature discussion and demonstrations, as well as an opportunity for members to show their work.

    The Guild is based in Regina, SK. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month from September through May. Members receive a monthly newsletter featuring work by Guild members, helpful tips, and how-to articles.

    Every year in May the Guild attempts to host a hammer-in or bring in a guest speaker to put on a knifemaking workshop.

    Worth a mention is that you don't have to be from Regina, or even Saskatchewan to be a member of the guild. I joined while I lived in the NWT and am still a member living in Nunavut.

    By the way Tim, I missed you at the swap meet. A guy comes this far for a meeting...

    Sorry to miss you, Big. I planned to be at the meeting, but a group I volunteer for was also meeting that night and I had to attend. I would have much rather been at the swap meet. As it was, all I came home with was big pile of work.

    Yes there is a fee and we do not have a website. If interested in joining click on the link of the first post. The cost is $20.00 if you want the newsletter by email.

    Ok thank you, I sent them a message. Is that 20 dollars a year? Sorry if that's a stupid question.

    Yup, still $20. I really like the electronic newsletter. My buddy runs the Cape Breton Blacksmiths Association and he was grumbling about the cost of mailing out memberships. I told him how we did it and I'm pretty sure that they were going to adopt our method as well.
