Tea and treasures
Do you like to drape yourself in a sheet and pretend it’s a toga or do you prefer fine tailoring? Do you wrap wool around sticks and make mobiles or use the sticks and wool to make lace? Whatever your skill level as a artist or crafter may be, there will be something for you at the textile sale organized as a fundraiser for the Bowen Island Fibre Arts Guild.
This spring, the guild donated the quilt ‘Scenes of Bowen’ to the Bowen Island Arts Council to support the organization's fundraising efforts and celebrate its silver anniversary. While this endeavour nearly emptied the guild's account, it raised a nice $2,000 plus for the arts council. To get the coffers back in shape and enable the continuation of community projects, member of the Fibre Art Guild have decided to dig into their stashes and share their treasures, well, offer them for sale at bargain prices, to put something back into the treasury and encourage islanders to create wonderful things with fabric and yarn.
We invite you to join us at the Leftbank Bistro on Saturday, September 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for a sale of fabric, yarn and beautifully handcrafted articles. A tea service with scones and sweets will be offered for $10.
Everyone is welcome – crafters and non-crafters – to come play with threads while enjoying a cup of tea or just to chat about lessons, tutoring, unfinished projects or anything related to textiles.
