Are there members of your Guild group who need a little help with the website? The Executive have released a PDF Guild entitled The Knitters' Guild NSW Website Made Easy. It explains how to use the Guild website; how to request a password and log in; and what to do once you're logged in. Please feel free to share it with other Guild members.

The Guide is available in our members-only area here.

Special thanks to Susan Brandt of the Epping group for providing the initial text and images!

This year's featured speaker at the 2010 Guild AGM was Tamara Lavrencic, Collections Manager from Historic Houses Trust of NSW. Tamara's speech was fascinating and much-admired by those in attendance. She has now volunteered to answer questions from Guild members related to conserving and preserving knitted and crocheted articles. You can leave a question for Tamara on this new members-only message board which she will moderate. The Guild will also offer a method for those members not on the Internet to contact Tamara; watch your newsletter for details. Welcome aboard, Tamara!
