"The magazine" - at last

It went to the printer on 16 December and my copy arrived (in my absence) on 17 January. That's quite a long turn-around, complicated by holidays - better luck next time....
First impression is that the photo on the cover looks less vibrant than on screen - well it would, it's printed on matte paper, 100gsm so it feels good to hold.

If you're well versed in Quilters' Guild protocols, you'll notice that something vital is missing from the cover - yes, a Guild logo to indicate "under what auspices you exist".
Inside, full colour and full pages -
The electronic copy that is available to members on the yahoogroup has clickable links - so far, only one email address has been found to have a spelling mistake. One too many!

It was challenging fun to put this issue together - there will be 11 more in the next three years. I'm glad to have a chance to use the skills (layout, editing, etc) that took years to build up, which I used to use every day. It's all very well not to have to show up at the office, but without "useful work", something goes out of your life.
