It sounds like an essay you had to write in elementary school, after returning from summer vacation, doesn’t it?
The International Guild of Miniature Artisans is celebrating 35 years of existence this year! There will be a plethora of festivities at the Guild Show this August, and we’d like a part of those festivities to include contributions from our members about what the Guild has meant to them.
When I first heard about the Guild, it was in regards to their fantastic show, where I found amazing miniatures for sale. I wanted to be a part of that, so I honed my craft and applied for Artisan to get my name out there and to begin establishing a reputation for my work. It was several years after that before I got to a place where I felt Guild School was a possibility and well, that just opened up the doors to me. I suspect that Guild School will be a pretty big part of what the Guild means to many people.
If I had to distill it down to a few words, I think I’d say the Guild has opened a world of possibilities to me.
What has it meant to you? Send your words, and/or pictures via e-mail to pat at prminiatures dot com; they may become part of our 35th Anniversary Celebration at the Guild Show in August!
