The Guild now has a new logo. Approximately one–third of the Guild membership voted, with 70% indicating they wished to change the old logo. Many congratulations to Ann Lemon, Maitland Group member, who designed the winning design.
A very big ‘Thank You‘ to those of you who entered this competition and those who took the time and trouble to vote.
Guild President, Sally Ogilvie, was hoping to present Ann with her prize of a basket of beautiful yarns on her recent visit to the Maitland Group but at the time Ann was enjoying an overseas trip. The basket is valued at about $350 and it was very kindly and generously donated by some of our wonderful Retail Members: Bendigo Woollen Mills, Feltfne, The House of Wool, Marlyn Alpaca, Mosman Needlecraft and The Wool Inn.
Ann’s design, which she painted, was assessed by an external academic designer for its suitability for all the uses we wish to make of it (digital, print, badges, cloth labels etc) and her suggestions were then passed to a professional graphic designer who produced the logo we see today.
