Texas Knifemakers Guild Regional Map and Regional Meetings

TKG Logo Regions Map

Attached please find the Texas Knifemakers Guild final regions map.  We voted to go with dividing the state into 3 regions.  It was proposed after the meeting to divide it like the Texas flag, brilliance.  This is what we ended up with.  Each region is responsible for designating 5 people from their region to be on the Board of Directors.  The 1st Board meeting is at the January 17th Houston Arms Collectors Gun Show.  Region 1 is responsibility for making accomodations for the meeting at the show.  There are 2 facebook groups that are region specific:  Texas Knifemakers Guild Region 1 and Texas Knifemakers Guild Region 2.  Someone from Region 3 needs to start a group for their region: Texas Knifemakers Guild Region 3.  Please join your respective group and participate in the voting of the Board of Directors members for your region.  We also voted that if you live near a boundary line, you can select the region you want to be in and if you are from out of state, you can select what region you want to be in.  Texas Knifemakers Guild Region 2 is to have an online discussion Sunday night at 9:30 p.m., 11/9/14.  I hope to get the voted on proposed bylaws sent out and posted to facebook tomorrow.  Also, I will do some sort of bullet points of the decisions.  Please get involved in your region.  Thanks.

  1. Hi I am a knife maker located in north Texas (region2). I am wondering what one would have to do to join the guild? I am relatively new to knife making but very much enjoy it. Any response would be greatly appreciated.
