Our quarterly Gazette, an all colour publication
usually running to 96 pages, is posted to all members. All Gazettes, from
the very first newsletter in 1956 are available to members on line with
a searchable index. An informative newsheet accompanies each Gazette with
news of members' and groups' activities and notice of forthcoming events, sales and wants etc.
In addition the Guild's comprehensive technical manual
is available to members only, and the whole manual is also on line.
Local & National Events
Our shows at Kettering (March), Doncaster (June) and particularly the Guildex convention at Stafford
