Suggestions for programs are always welcome. Past programs are recorded and available in the library under the category “meeting.”
Meetings also include time for questions, help from other woodworkers, and sharing of accomplishments (Woodworker’s Show and Tell).
There is also a “sub-group” of carvers who hold an additional monthly gathering with “hands-on” sessions focusing on carving techniques, sharpening, design, and painting.

The exceptions when monthly meetings do not take place include the month of the spring show, August picnic, and December potluck celebration.
The NEWWG has hosted a woodworking show in Green Bay each spring since 1983 to bring greater awareness of woodworking to the larger community. Members display their work, with some woodworkers demonstrating techniques as well. Some will also have items for sale. A raffle of donated items draws a lot of interest, and provides revenue to the guild. Dates and details announced as they are developed.
