VIWG COVID -19 Update

Hi subscriber,

The Vancouver Island Woodworker's Guild continues to put a priority on the health and safety of our members and the community at large. Recent recommendations from Public Health Authorities directed toward many community activities have caused the VIWG Executive to cancel the April 14th Guild meeting. The fate of future meetings will be considered as the impact of COVID - 19 continues to be assessed.

The Wood Sale planned for March 22nd has also been postponed. We will reschedule as soon as possible. Small group sales are possible as we want to get this wood to our members! If you have any questions, please contact Phil Makin 250.592.4033 or

Please note that the MIWG Wood Sale for March 21st has been cancelled. Check the MIWG website ( for more information.

That's great news. Thanks to our members enthusiastic response, we have a show ready to set up on April 21 and open to the public on April 22.
We will keep you, our members, informed of any updates and expect more information early in April.
