KNIT CROCHET CROSS STITCH AND CELEBRATE!

Celebrate our 200th meeting by taking a guided (and $11.00 admission discounted by 25%) tour of Western Threads. Guided by Lucie Hines, curator of this exhibit, we'll take a tour and then spend the rest of the time knitting, crocheting and cross stitching in public: either in the exhibit proper, outside (weather permitting) or in the museum cafeteria.  (Booked tour with Sonia Smith)

Let's celebrate our history by becoming a part of history!

    Excellent experience. Who knew that being a museum exhibit could be so fun?

    I appreciate all of your thank-yous. I had a great time and I like the names of our mascots and especially our new mascot, CC!

    Thanks Jan for posting the great pictures on the Facebook group (which I shamelessly stole!).

    I really enjoyed myself at the Museum today. thanks to Barb and Lois for all their hard work organizing the outing! The exhibit is well worth a visit for those folks who didn't get there today.

    Thank you, Barb, for this wonderful afternoon. It was truly amazing to see the wonderful work that fibre artists are doing in different media, and to have such a good guide to tell us about the pieces. I would have liked to have stayed and knitted a bit more, but it wasn't only Cynthia's little girl that was getting tired but me too. So good to see everybody.

    Is it a must to pay for admission to Western Threads? Or can I meet you all at the museum and knit together? What time?

    June 27

    • Barb

      You must pay admission, but it is a reduced price if you go in with us as a group at 1:00 p.m. It is regularly $11.00 but the group rate is $8.25, plus tax. We will be knitting inside the exhibition, as part of the exhibition, in groups of 4-5. We will be doing that until the exhibit closes as 5:00 p.m. Of course, you do not have to stay right to the end if you have other obligations.

    Husband has a "honey do" list for me, so I sadly have to back out. I was looking forward to an afternoon of knitting!

    So, after a mild temper tantrum, I've got coverage at work and can make it. Yeah! (Always wanted the possibility of being part of a museum exhibit.)

    3 · June 19

  • Linda M.

    Can't make it after all - can't get coverage at work for that day.

    June 18
