Our sponsors contribute to SDFWA in many ways and deserve your patronage. A benefit of SDFWA membership is the discount our members receive when purchasing from our sponsors. Additionally, sponsors support our activities – including the raffle at our general meetings, door prizes at our fall seminar, and materials for the 19th Century Chair Shop at the Design in Wood Exhibition at the San Diego County Fair.
