Guild Meeting April 27 2021

Dear Members and Friends,

I'm happy to invite you to our first in-person meeting for this year, where we can at last meet without a computer!  7pm on Tuesday 27th, at our usual venue in Hawthorn.  Among other things, we will be looking for suggestions for the planned display of work for our 40th anniversary year.

Even though evenings are getting dark, damp and cool, we would love to see you in Hawthorn if you can make it.  (note that due to Covid we are unable to provide supper, but you are welcome to BYO).  But if you can't make it, you can join by Zoom, register by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

We will have  some viewing of our projects accomplished ( or started) during the last year of non face to face meetings, along with some materials from the Guild Materials scheme, if you are looking for materials, send a note to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will see if we can bring it along.  We will have available a range of books from the Maurice Betterridge Collection, all sales assist the Guild finances. There will also be a few pieces of equipment, and some instruction stands.  If you have an unresolved challenge in binding, bring it along as well, you never know someone else may have resolved just such a challenge.

Most of all we can freely meet and talk, and enjoy the fraternal atmosphere of a shared interest in books and bookbinding.

 Regards Jim Finger   President
