The Midwest Faceter's Guild offers membership to anyone interested in the art of faceting gemstones.
Yearly membership in our non-profit Guild is $20 for an individual and $30 for a family. Most of our members live in the Midwest, however many live throughout the U.S.
Membership includes a subscription to the Guild Newsletter, “The Midwest Faceter”, which features guild updates and events, gem cutting diagrams, information for beginning thru advanced cutters, and more. This full-color publication is available via mail or e-mail. The e-mail version is encouraged, as it helps us control costs.
Membership also includes access to educational programming, Q&As, interviews with industry experts and more via Zoom, a private Facebook Group, and more.
Our Guild sponsors faceting "frats" - groups of faceters who meet to facet together- on a regular basis.
We have regular meetings, demonstrations at gem and mineral shows throughout the Midwest, recreational events, and an annual Faceting Seminar which features both educational and social opportunities for members, new faceters, jewelers, and friends.
Don't know how to facet? Don't let that stop you! A shared love of faceted gemstones ties this group together and helps us grow as an organization. Several of our member families are comprised of one or more faceters plus an interested spouse, partner, or children.
