We had room at the end of the table to demonstrate as well, and between us Kay Vincent, Ange Smith and myself managed to keep demonstrating polymer techniques throughout the day, again showing people what effects could be easily achieved. We had a lot of people interested and thinking about joining a local group, most of whom were from the London area, but there is still a desperate need for new groups to start up in the Oxford and Essex area, so anyone in that vicinity and available, how about starting your own branch?
No new members signed up on the day, but some took membership forms away with them, loads took cards to visit the Guild’s website and see what is on in their area, and we have a new member of the South Midlands Group. Kay, Ange and I may also have had a chance to do a little retail therapy - it was a bead fair after all - and after all that talking and demonstrating I think we deserved it. As usual it was a great fun day, and if you ever want to volunteer to help out at future events, just drop us a line.
