Guild Sample Box

What is the Guild Box?

This is a box, currently in the care of the Guild Minister, which contains samples of embellishment done by various members of the guild. The box started at the request of the Crown, as a condition for the Guild to be made a full Guild. Their majesties wisely wanted to be able to show the populace what an embellisher did and what embellishment is! The Guild members stepped up and gladly supplied samples of embellishment! (BTW we can always use more samples, so if you want to do some, contact the Guild Minister and let them know!)
