The Association is supported by about 180 active members and these members receive the Associations official newsletter, The Traveller, three times a year.

Check out the latest issue of The Traveller

The Traveller is a fabulous read and is what keeps everyone informed and connected. It is published by and for the members of the Association and the cost is included in the annual membership fee. Included in each issue is a list of Wheelwright Association Advisors who are available to answer members questions, lots of good information about the technical aspects of wheelwrighting, what other wheelwrights are doing and some history and a bit of humor to lighten the day. Members can advertise a business or service for a nominal fee that pays for advertising for a full year. Members can also place a small ad in a single issue to buy or sell items at no cost.
