To all,

Well, heck has just rained down and it looks like I'll be commuting to Toronto and working there during the week days (I try and travel back home every Friday) for up to 9 months. As long as I'm there, anyone know of any Faceting, Gemstone or other type guilds that wouldn't mind a guest who'd buy a beer (assuming it doesn't have a 100 members :)

Hi Bob,

Try North York Faceting Guild, I was introduced by the very friendly Al Manestar (creator of the Maple Leaf cut) - this was about 16 years ago when I was living in TO - they were very welcoming.
Their FB is https://www.facebook.com/NorthYorkFacetingGuild/

Meetings are held at Armour Heights Community Centre, (Wilson and Avenue)

3rd Friday of every month except July & August. I don’t get out to meetings enough. It’s a strong community up here. Lots of new faces.

Jawad,
Al Manestar died in February 2017. There was a lot I still wanted to learn from him. Our club has been doing a maple leaf cut challenge.

Lorne, Atelier,

Thank you both for the information. I'll be starting in a week and it'll probably take me a couple of weeks to get to a point where I have evenings off :) However, I will definitely try and attend a meeting and once again, my thanks :)
