The goal of our Guild is to promote Fibre Arts through sharing knowledge with each other and encouraging interest in our crafts throughout the community.

October was a month full of events featuring art and handcrafted displays throughout the Saanich Peninsula. It was nice to see the Deep Cove Weavers and spinners showing off their talents at several of the venues.
Our Guild was priviledged to host Richard Ashford, from Ashford Handicrafts in New Zealand. Richard gave a presentation to our members and guests from the Victoria Guild; Tzouhalem Weavers and Salt Spring Island. The audience was fully engaged as he demonstrated his techniques with the latest equipment. For more information on Ashford visit their website at: www.ashford.co.nz
We are well into Fall and our thoughts turn to handcrafted gifts for family and friends. A favourite amongst the Weavers is the tea towel. There are so many design and colour combinations that the possibilities are limitless.
Let your imagination go and enjoy the simple pleasures of your craft. What better way to embrace the beauty of this season.
