Hi Members,

Although the convention is not until June, there is uncertainty all round - Prudy's travel, hotel closure, and how long restrictions will remain in place - so we have decided to postpone convention until later in the year, possibly autumn.

We will review the situation as things develop and will keep you posted.

In the meantime, please keep in touch on our BADFA Online Facebook group, let us know what you are up to, and show us how creative you are being. The newsletter will continue to go out, and I shall need your contributions even more now!

If you have any questions please send them to in the first instance.

Stay safe - it is the time for creativity - in all aspects of our lives!

February News

Hi All,

The members newsletter has been sent out and should (if you are a paid-up member) be sitting in your inbox waiting to be read.

New members have been included in the distribution list, so if you can't find it check your spam or junk folders. If you still can't find it email me at .

Remember it is your newsletter, so I'd love to hear what you are up to - even if it is art/craft based. It would be good even if you sent just pictures of what you've painted, because the more you send in the less the committee or I have to write.

Don't forget to join us on Facebook at BADFA Online!
