We will be in the Sophia Fahs Community Room, a large room located in the basement that can accommodate about 60 people seated at tables. You can park at the rear of the Church (the driveway to the parking lot is on Clarke Street), and access the Sophia Fahs room by going down the stairs at the rear entrance.

In addition to having our meetings in a new location, there’s more big news – the Book Arts Guild of Vermont is now officially a membership organization!
Your membership will help us to improve and expand our organization’s efforts to act as both an educational and creative resource in the field of book arts. Annual dues are only $35.00 – an annual savings over making a monthly donation to Burlington City Arts.
