Community Spirit and Garage Sales

Our members live in a collection of small to medium sized communities that populate the mid section of Vancouver Island.  These communities have distinct personalities which they celebrate at community events.  Family Day in Qualicum Beach is one of those events.  It brings together a mix of community groups from tap dancers to weavers and spinners.  Rain or shine our guild has taken part in Family Day for many years.  This year it was sunny.  Our cheer leader is showing her appreciation.

 We love this event and the enthusiastic group of families that always show up.  It is delightful to watch the children most of whom are shy at first and a bit reluctant to try anything.  With a bit of encouragement they soon become fascinated with the process of making yarn or cloth.

our booth is always a busy place

Events like this are a great way to help keep the crafts alive, to build an appreciation of the “made by hand” label and to introduce people to a satisfying past time.


Our next “public” event is a new for us but not for most people.  We are having a garage/yard sale!  A gigantic sale too big to fit in the garage alone.  This is a fund raiser to help finance our educational programs and resource centre.    Members have been purging their homes for the last month and as a result we will have truck loads of stuff to sell and I am not kidding.  There will be collectables, house hold and garden items, tools, furniture, children’s items and so much more.

You can help us to simplify our lives while recycling for the good of the planet and even find yourself a bargain by coming.  That gives you three reasons to be there, so copy the following information.

Date:  Saturday, June 22nd
Time:  8:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location:  238 4th Avenue West, (corner of Jones & 4th Avenue) in Qualicum Beach
