The Guild is moving!
13 Mar 2015

Effective April 1, the Guild office—and business manager Sue Warden—are located at Hancock Shaker Village. The contact info is the same: PO Box 60, Becket, MA 01223 and 855/598-1803. The folks at HSV were gracious to allow the Guild to set up our office there: we have had a long and collaborative relationship with them. Hancock Shaker Village was the site of the very first Guild conference, June 14–16, 1985. 2015 also marks our 30th anniversary. How fitting for us to have an office at the site of the inaugural Guild conference.
