Important Notice

After a very long life on the internet the Guild Directors
have decided that the time has come to retire this site. The
general growth and direction of the Internet, social media,
and competing technologies and offerings have drawn away our
audience steadily over time, and interest in liquid fuel lamps
has waned as well.

On December 17 we will accept our final Q and A submissions, and
on January 2, 2017 this site will be turned down. Of course we
will be archiving all our valued content and to the extent possible
it will be made available via other online venues.

Reserve this email address for future contact: lampguild@earthlink.net
This will connect you with the Guild board secretary, Darcy Vantiger.

Thank you all for so many years of wonderful participation, questions,
answers, and solutions. The collective knowledge and experience here
has always been excellent.

And keep those lamps burning!

We are grateful to the following for their contributions of time, knowledge and donations. Without everyone's help and support, very little of what the Guild has become would have been possible. We can't say THANK YOU enough. (diplomatically, in alphabetical order)
