Mention guild name (Desert Fiber Arts) on phone orders. Mention guild name in store. Don’t want to remember to note your guild? Quick solution: click the guild name to set a “cookie” in your browser so that your order will automatically be noted with your guild. Better solution: If you are signed into a Halcyon Yarn web user account, and you click a guild link, that guild will remain associated with your account whenever you log in!
