The idea became a venture, and Flair magazine was born.
However, we felt that even this did not entirely answer the needs of people who wanted to exchange views, comments and ideas – space in Flair magazine is limited by production costs – which makes it impossible to publish all the letters and emails sent to us and impractical to establish any direct communication between readers.
A suggestion from one reader that some sort of national ‘club’, coordinated by Flair would be a good idea was also deemed too difficult to administrate within our existing structure – but from that idea the Guild was formed.
The Guild will be administrated from the offices of Flair Magazine and the initial Committee is made up of our own senior staff.

Aims and Objectives
This is what we hope your Guild will be.
A Club with members from all backgrounds and abilities, where members can communicate nationally with others of similar interests, through the Guild forum, hopefully adding to their enjoyment of their chosen activity.
We are, of course aware that not everyone has access to a computer, so regular newsletters will keep all members up to date with events and there will be a Guild page in Flair Magazine.
In addition the Guild will be offering exclusive projects to members, competitions, and project kits and from time to time discounted products that may be of interest.
We hope that in the future as well as an established national network, the Guild will be able to provide regional and local organisations and events, although this will depend upon amount of interest and the willingness of potential organisers.
We hope not to impose upon you interminable rules and regulations – we would expect that members would at all times remain polite and courteous and always observe the copyright rules of others. It is a legal requirement of the forum that certain regulations should be posted, but we can’t imagine that our Guild members would be in breach of many of these.
Other aims and objectives will largely depend upon you, the Guild Members.
All letters and emails will be read personally by our staff. If you have suggestions as to how you would like to see the Guild progress, or ideas you would like to share, please get in touch with us.
