Become a Friend of the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers
The Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers is a 501c6 non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of quality craftsmanship, excellence in design, and the pursuit of artistic vision in the field of furniture making. Most of our members are very small furniture shops which are owned and operated by a single person making fine furniture, one piece at a time. As very small businesses competing in a big business world, we have joined our energy with the goal of increasing public awareness and appreciation of this time honored art, thereby expanding the market for handcrafted furniture and promoting the common interests of furniture makers in Vermont. When you give the Guild your monetary support, you are helping these small businesses keep traditions of hard work and high quality alive. At the same time, our continued success helps spread the message to help keep these traditions alive throughout the country and the world. You will also be supporting the Guild’s efforts as a mentoring organization as we have just opened up a Journeyman level of membership for up and coming master level furniture makers.
