The Guild of Straw Craftsmen - AGM 2019

AGM 2019

We have now sorted out the details of the 2019AGM weekend and here is the booking form. Please note that the deadline is not very far away. So, a quick response would be very helpful.

Some of you will know the Banbury House hotel from previous events we have held there. For those of you who haven’t yet had the pleasure of a stay there, we can assure you that you will be made very welcome and that the staff are as keen as we are to make this a very enjoyable weekend.

Lynette and Heather have done a great job sorting out the arrangements and we hope that as many of you as possible will be able to come along, meet old friends and put a face to those names in the membership booklet.

We do hope that you will find it possible to spend some time with us in September. Paperwork for the AGM will be sent out nearer the time but if there is something you would like to see on the agenda, do get in touch with me so that we don’t miss the opportunity to put it into the general discussion.

On Sunday the after dinner speaker will be Mary Lewis who is the Endangered Crafts officer of the Heritage Crafts Association, who has been gathering information about straw craft in the UK.

Dorothy Seedhouse, Guild Secretary
