Guild Meeting March 22 2021 Marbling and AGM




Greetings to all Members

Due to the weather changing and the need to cancel the marbling in tonight's meeting, we have decided that the advertised face to face meeting  will be replaced by Zoom only meeting. My apologies for the inconvenience. We look forward to seeing your faces online, sharing some discussion about  your projects and news since our last meeting.

We will start at  7pm for the general meeting including a segment for the formal AGM.

I look forward to you joining us.

Jim Finger   email   president for the zoom codes.

However a buyer wanted the set, and I did not think it fair to sell when Volumes 1, 3,4, 5, and 8 were half leather with marbled sides, all with boards detached. So some repairs were warranted, and some rebacks and repairs to the cloth volumes. This report has two parts, the repairs report and the collation /bibliographical report.
