Hi Sparklepop - missed you last time!
Miscue - I am in Newcastle
I looked into joining the guild, and also the association (?) but there are no local meetings etc, so I didn't think it would be of much value just yet. There's a fair bit though, I think, that goes on in Sydney. I am focussing at the moment on soaking up the knowledge and expertise of one of the local, big suppliers of cake decorating stuff and classes in the Hunter region. I'm doing a class right now actually, which has been good for picking the brains of then local experts
