Progress on our Member Directory

Greetings to all Helena Woodworkers Guild members: I have recently been trying to update our online membership directory and wanted to let you know that I am making progress. Thank you so much, to everyone who has sent me web links, photos and personal information for the membership directory!

As of now, every paid member of the guild has a listing in the membership directory.

However … many of the listings are simply that — a listing — without a gallery of woodworking projects or a link to a personal or business site elsewhere on the web. There are still many members who have not sent me photos of their work, and I need these in order to make you a personal gallery page on the guild’s website.

This is just a screenshot of a section of our membership directory

The image above is just a screenshot of a section of our membership directory. Blue highlighted member names are links to their gallery or an off-site website of their own.

IF you are interested in having a link to a gallery of your woodworking on your member listing (see screenshot above,) please — please — send me some photos of your projects. Between 6 and 12 photos is ideal. These photos do not have to be professional photos, although that helps if you are trying to sell your work, and/or show off your work in the best light (pun intended, heh)

Check my member listing here for my email address to send digital photos. I am happy to answer any questions you have about how to take good photos and the best format for sending digital files to me. (Maureen)

Photo above is a screenshot of a member's gallery page. Each member who sends photos of their woodworking to me will have a page like this, with your name, business name (if applicable) phone and email address, photo of you, and a "gallery."

Also, if you have not paid your dues, and you would like to be a member (having a listing in our directory) please send your dues check to Bill Pratt or give it to him at one of our meetings. Give your contact information to Bill Daigle and I will get all of this and be able to make you a member listing.

Thank you for your help in making our guild website a useful and dynamic site. The better we make it, the more you will want to use it to send to your friends, family members and clients, and to find helpful woodworking information. 

Ciao! — Maureen Shaughnessy, your web”mastress!” 😉
