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.”
