The theme of our virtual meeting was ‘Jigsaws Great and Small’, and we kicked off in style with three Zoom talks – from Maria, on small puzzles, Julia on postcard puzzles, and Mike on the history of large cardboard puzzles (over 1,000 pieces).

Meanwhile, on flickr members were posting photos of the puzzles they were working on, including an unusually large number of small puzzles. There was an ongoing debate about which was actually the world’s smallest puzzle. Nine members showed small and large puzzles in our ‘Show and Tell’. This session, and the talks, were recorded, and are available on the members’ section of the website.

Here are examples of tiny puzzles (Friendship Tea, JNG Puzzles) and a 1,500 piece puzzle, (Intercepted correspondence, Wentworth).

 

Our final event was an informal chat on Zoom, where it is great to catch up with members who can’t get to meetings. Excitement is building up now about the house party next month, where there will be some interesting talks, mountains of puzzles for sale, and the chance to puzzle from dawn to midnight with old friends.  See you there!
