Northwest Basket Weavers

Vi Phillips Guild

Welcome!

The Northwest Basket Weavers, Vi Phillips Guild was established in 1982.  The purpose of our Guild is to preserve and promote the art of basket making.  Our members are wonderful people whose skills and knowledge vary from folks who just love baskets to beginning basket weavers to professional artists, teachers and collectors.  Please join us, learn with us, and share with us!

GUILD COMMUNICATIONS
Guild communications are primarily via (1) the Guild’s monthly Newsletters, (2) Guild eNews (emails), and (3) the Guild’s website.

The current Newsletter is available in digital form (PDF) from the Guild website; new Newsletters are announced via a monthly Guild email (eNews).  Past Newsletters are also available from the Guild website.  Members without Internet access may, by request, receive printed copies of the Newsletters; however, because of mailing and printing costs, we ask others to download the Newsletter PDF from the Guild website and print a copy at home or at a local copy center should they desire.

For Guild eNews, new members are automatically sent an emailed invitation to subscribe and those wishing to receive Guild emailed announcements must respond. Members can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button in an eNews message.  Without eNews, Members must rely on the Guild website for current information and Newsletter access.

eNews emails are sent by: “nwbw-enews@nwbasketweavers.org”

Newsletters are archived in the “Members Only” section, as are Board Minutes and Financial Documents.  All archived documents can be downloaded and printed.
