The newsletter of the Guild is called Raised Bands, and this is its 33rd year.

It comes out six times a year: February, April, June, August, October and December, usually just before the meetings (as an aide memoir). Members receive it by email.

The deadline for contributions is: 20 January, March, May,  July, September and November 2017.

Guild members are heartily encouraged to contribute news of their activities, images of their work, notices of upcoming events, interesting internet links, and anything else they gauge is of interest to other members.

The newsletter can also contain advertisements and classified notices.

Contributions of text can be emailed or posted to the Editor, Lee Bratt. Text can be embedded in the body of the email or provided as an attachment.

Images should not be too big (over 1MB) nor too small (if taken from the internet, the printed version will be pixelated, but will be ok for the online version). JPG (JPEG) format is easiest to email. Photos can be scanned if you do not have digital copies.

The Guild decided to load copies of Raised Bands as downloadable PDF documents (from 2007). Membership privilege preserved with a lag of twelve months between publishing issues and making them available on the web. If you would like to receive up-to-date copies,  you need to be a member of the Guild. Click on the caption underneath image to download the file. You may then store it electronically on your own computer or print it out. These issues are only stored at screen resolution.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed to view the PDFs. If you haven’t already got it, you can download it for free from the Adobe website.
