DCWS and VHWSG Joint Meeting Antics

 The Deep Cove Weavers and Spinners hosted the annual meeting with the Victoria Handweavers' and Spinners Guild on Thursday May21st.  Over 50 people participated, enjoying each others company and of course the amazing food.   The evening began with the unveiling of the "Duds to Diamonds" Challenge.  A slide show of the before  'duds' was presented then the creator of the finished product 'diamonds' spoke about the transformation process.   The stories were interesting and our ability to laugh at ourselves was contagious.  Laughter IS good for the soul!
After the unveiling we took a break to enjoy the appetizers and think about our favourite 'Duds to Diamonds'.  The Prize Winners......................
1st Prize Lee: Valentine's Vest from many scarves















2nd Prize: Anita Salmon's Diaper Bag converted from a Baby Sling





3rd Prize:  Elaine Drader's Vest of Many Colours
