The Ivan Sayers Show From the Inside Out 8 Oct 2005

In celebration of Weaving and Spinning Week 2005, the Salt Spring Island Weavers and Spinners Guild invited Vancouver historian Ivan Sayers to spin his tales of fashion history to a sold-out, appreciative audience in the ArtSpring theatre.

We were pleased to report that this event raised more than $2,400 for the Seeds for Malawi program, enough to provide seeds and farm implements to feed the sponsored village residents for almost half a year.

We had great support from our Guild members, the Garden Club, the Gulf Islands Community Arts Council, and several of our local  businesses.  Thank-you, one and all.

So please share our photographic reminiscences, from Edwardian to “Gothic Light.”
