Gathering Of The Guilds 2023

April 28-30 we are again at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland OR with artists from 5 other guilds

Admission is FREE. This year’s attendance is expected to be a bit larger than 2019, probably above 20,000 so we have high hopes for a spectacular show.

We’ll need volunteers. It’s a great way to meet other glassies and be involved with the excitement. Fill out the form so the Volunteer coordinator can contact you.

There is still space in the Individual Spotlight display area and a few spaces in the Group Booth. Read the Registration info here. Login first and you can fill out your registration form as part of the process.

Charity Table: The Guild will again be selling members’ work for donations to Mercy Corps to help people in Ukraine and other crisis spots around the world. See the form for more details.

If you have questions please contact our wonderful coordinator Lesley Kelly who is back for a second year. Watch the event link for updates

Volunteer Opportunities:

There are many spots in the organization where we’d love some help. Some take only a few minutes a week, some are an hour or two a month: join one of the teams tying the glass community together.

This is a show and tell of things you’ve tried that worked and those that didn’t.
