Dear Members

I hope that this finds you and yours well, while Melbourne is still giving us some cold, cold days but Spring is just round the corner and the days will not be sooo grey and gloomy.

It is definitely lovely to see the Spring flowers starting to show their color and beauty.

As there is only one demonstration left for this Guild year, (Denise Jones’s 2nd fire Rose Study), I feel it is time to reflect and say a huge thank you to all our very generous demonstrators who have taken many of us out of our comfort zone and challenged us to try something new or different.  Thank you ladies, I have really enjoyed trying and learning from you all, it has been an amazing year.

During this year the Guild has been very fortunate to have had some very generous donations of porcelain, books and painting requisites. These have been onforwarded to our members via the ‘Buy Swap and Sell’ that we have at our monthly meetings.  I would like to take the time here to say a BIG thank you to Janet Tiller who brought her mother in law’s (Joan Tiller) china and painting supplies to my home so that we can pass them on to the members.  Joan Tiller was painting in the 1970’s and from the pictures I saw, was a very beautiful painter.  Unfortunately Joan is no longer able to paint.

As this Guild year draws to a close, we can look back on great times we have had together and look forward to our AGM with the GRAND SALE.  Then, our last get together for 2023, will be the Christmas Luncheon, where we can spend time with those who will be able to attend.  Please make sure you have booked for the Christmas luncheon

Until next we speak, please Take Care.
