Orchidians in Vancouver Washington

Hey everyone,

Next week my family will be moving to Vancouver, Washington (just
outside of Portland - Not Canada.) I just wanted to put out some
feelers to see if anyone lives in the area or if there are any
guilds. We should be arriving sometime around February 16th. I plan
on setting up a temporary studio in the home we will be renting
while we look for a permanent home and studio space. I don’t know too
many people (like 3) in the area and would love to get together with
some other jewelry and metal artists.

Yes indeed. There is an excellent jewelry guild in Portland,Or, and
we have many members who live in the state of Washington.

Check out our website, by googling Creative Metal Arts Guild,
Portland, Or. Be sure to add Portland,Or, as there are other guilds
with the same name in other parts of the country. We are getting ready
to do our annual CMAG spring show in early May, at the Oregon
Convention Center here in Portland. Welcome to the wonderful Pacific
Northwest. If you want any additional contact me off


Hi Melissa, In Portland there is the Creative Metal Arts Guild or

Welcome to the northwest.

Vince LaRochelle, Oakridge, or

Melissa… Good luck with your move! Just wanted you to know I
really enjoy your you-tube videos!! Thanks,


Just a bit further north is the Seattle Metals Guild. This is a very
active guild and offers lectures and workshops and also an annual
one-day symposium in October which is excellent.

Hi Melissa,

As previously mentioned…welcome to the northwest…and Vancouver!
CMAG is a dynamic group and it would be great to have you along.
