Our Exhibition 'Fun with Fibre' at the Sidney Museum has been a great success. Visitors enjoyed a trip into the past with the "Quarter Century Club" display; saw exquisite handspun knitted items; a variety of weaving and delightful felted characters. 'Fun with Fibre' is running until October 31st.... you still have a few days left to drop in and see the exhibition before we take it down.
The first meeting of October included visitors from the Salt Spring Island Guild; a vibrant show & tell and a trip to the Museum to view our exhibition, followed by a group luncheon.
October 11th, Anita Salmon shared what she learned from an Eco Print dyeing course at Maiwa in Vancouver.
October 18th, Jean Betts gave a presentation on her recent trip to Japan and brought along her hand sewn "Hanten" (a Japanese workers jacket). You can follow Jean on her blog at: http://onesmallstitch.wordpress.com
October 25th, we were delighted to have Catherine Mick, the "Rag Lady" join us with a trunk show of her many creations.
Its been a busy month at the Guild and our imaginations are awash with ideas from these amazing people. We've hardly had time to notice the "blustery" weather outside.
Some photos of our "colourful, active" month of October:
