Done and Dusted

What a lot of fun we had at the Getaway, earlier this week! Just under 40 attendees were treated to conversation, a contest, many raffle prizes and presents, a free workshop with Lenka Suchanek, and a wonderful pre-lunch talk from renowned clothing historian Ivan Sayers, whose program was about women’s clothing in Canada from 1867 – 2017. We finished off with our traditional lunch, and spent the final afternoon in lacemaking and more conversation.

We had 8 entries into the “Canada – 150 Years” exhibition, and the “People’s Choice” prizewinner was our own Donna Leong, with her beaver & branch and maple leaf, all done in wire lace. Photos will be up on our website later this week.

I think we are all looking forward to next year’s Getaway, which will be in Victoria, BC.
