The Royal Show is upon us, and the Bookbinding competition will again be judged and on display. Some nice cash prizes are to be won, mostly sponsored by the Guild.
We have also a display next to the bookbinding entries, a tribute to Dr John Willis, long time member of the Guild, sometimes secretary, bulletin editor and life member. If you attend the show, make sure you visit the display in the Spotlight Art and Crafts Pavilion.
On Saturday 21st the Guild will have the Spotlight Makers Bench from 10 am to 4 pm with some displays and promotions of bookbinding as a craft. We hope this will also increase our profile, and maybe fill a few extra bookbinding classes.
Our meeting on September 24 will include the usual book clinic, and an evaluation of the book entries at the show. We will have some pictures of the Show competition and of the tribute display for Dr John Willis. Also some book cloth in the buying scheme. Contact Jim email@example.com if you have materials requirements to make sure I bring them along.
October Meeting will feature a presentation on the Society of Bookbinders Conference in Bath, England. Mary Russell, our librarian, had the opportunity to attend and will bring a report to us.
