Membership Renewal Reminder

There is still time to get your membership dues, renewal and release forms mailed in.  Packets with these and entry forms were mailed out this fall.  If you need to replace these forms they are available on the Guild's Blog Site @

BOTH release forms must be signed and sent in with your renewal form and fee.

"Mind Over Matter" has not yet been judged.  Some pieces were chosen as possible 2010 calendar entries and were removed to be photographed by the clinic.  Now that they have been returned, judging will take place soon.  An email will be sent out with the results as soon as they are known.

Stay warm!
