Documents of the Embellishers' Guild
The following are the current documents of the Embellishers' Guild. These versions of these documents supercede all others.
Guild Guidelines, Embellishment Forms, and More
The guild guidelines, embellishment forms, ranks, knowledge levels, ranks, badge and more. This document is the final word on guild structure and guidelines ('rules'). It is revised fairly often. The document linked here will always be the most up to date.
The documents below discuss ranks in the guild, finding/plotting your way through the ranks, and more. Some of these are handouts from classes held online, in the guild Facebook group. These classes may be repeated in the future, as new members learn about the guild.
- A brief introduction to ranks and challenges, by THL Giana Visconti. This brief introduction may help you understand guild ranks and challenges better.
- Advancing Through the Ranks, class taught by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntrinham, outline by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham. This class was taught on 20 September 2017. The handout is still up to date.
- Guild Rank/Challenges Recording Sheet by Mistress Alicia le Wilfulle. This provides a handy way to record your travel through the ranks of the guild (and the challenges you pass to get there).
The following document concerns challenges. Information about challenges may also be included in the documents about ranks, above.
- NEW!:A Simple discussion of Challenges class taught by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntrinham, outline by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham. This simply talks about doing a challenge and about organizing challenges for an event.
Information for Deputy Guild Ministers, Their Deputies, and So On
- Regional Guild Minister Guidelines. These are the guidelines for running a regional guild. This was a class taught by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntrinham, outline by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham, rev. 8 Mar 2017.
- How to Run Challenges. This is about running challenges for the Guild. It is from a slightly different angle and in more details, than the handout linked under 'Challenges' above. From a class taught by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntrinham, outline by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham, 21 August 2017.
Membership and Challenge Forms
- Membership Form. The basic membership form for the guild. Download it, print it, fill it out and scan it to email to the guild/database minister. Or, if you are a regional or challenge deputy, bring copies of this form to events so people might join the guild if they so desire. Once they are filled out, send them along to the guild/database minister.
- Challenges Report Form. This is the form to use if you are organizing/running challenges to record the results of those challenges. Scan it after you've filled it out, and send it to the guild/database minister. This form allows you to record up to 8 challenges on one sheet. You can use more than one sheet if necessary.
Online Meeting Minutes/Outlines
Online meetings are sometimes held on Facebook either before, or after, Kingdom events. The following documents are outlines for some of them.
- Agenda and Notes for the 2017 September Crown Online Meeting. Agenda written, meeting run, and notes taken by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham.
- Agenda for the 2018 pre-September Crown (August) Online Meeting. Agenda written, and meeting run by Magistra Aelianora de Wyntringham.
