Continuing Threads, 60th Anniversary Exhibition 2007, May Update

We now have the Royal Show, Castle Hill Show and the Hawkesbury Show behind us and you still have four weeks to deliver your entry for our exhibition. The closing date is 31 May 2007.
I have heard some ideas and I am now starting to wonder what wonderful items we will find when we open the many (I hope) parcels. In case you have forgotten, the entry form and sales form were printed in the February newsletter.

The designer yarn form is in the March issue. If you can’t find them we have extra forms available at the guild rooms. Call in, write or just fill one in when you deliver your entries.
Swing tags are available at the rooms or by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope. If you are really desperate and you are a country member, you have run out of time for us to post them out, send your work with the entry form, include the necessary information for me and I will put the tags on for you.
Last month we told you that any garment which is for sale has to have your personal label as well as a content and care label stitched inside. I have just spent an interesting half-hour on the phone trying to verify that. I spoke to people from two government departments, Department of Fair Trading and Standards Australia. Three of them confirmed the need for content and care labels but none of them seemed to know about the other one. The consensus seemed to be that the buyer needs to be able to contact someone if there is a problem with the construction of the garment. Since we require every for sale item to carry our Guild swing tag and that will show the individual maker’s name then that should be sufficient labelling.
Some replies are starting to come in with offers to help. Thank you all. I will contact everyone closer to the dates to confirm your dates and your role.
