The Guild is in discussions with the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design and Parks Canada (Fortress Louisbourg) concerning encouraging public connection with jewellery artifacts discovered at the Fortress. Although no firm plans have been made, members may like to have a preliminary look at design themes and jewellery from the Fortress.
We’ll keep you informed on progress…

A preliminary draft of the page for this year’s show is now available here. As you will see, we are looking for pictures from the Cape Breton ceremony. Hope there will be some from the Halifax opening, too when that happens Dec. 7.

Novembers meeting, and all those henceforth, will be held again at the NSCCD Metals Studio. For those unable to attend the last meeting it was requested that we change the meeting location back due to the difficulty of finding parking at the new meeting location. The date for the meeting has also been changed from the regular 3rd week of the month as many of the members will be busy that night working at the NSDCC Christmas Craft Show.
Date Friday November 22nd
