 This is a thank you to everyone who helped to make our annual show and sale, Elegant Threads, a successs.

We had a blast!.  We visited with old friends who come every year and we made some new ones that we hope to see again.  We enjoyed sharing our love of fibre arts with others.  Your encouraging words and compliments were much appreciated.  To those of you who bought items we hope they give as much enjoyment as we had in making them.

Our famous tower of tea towels was greatly diminished by the end of the sale.  Here’s to the many kitchens that have, or shortly will have, a new work of art!

An event like this takes many hands to put together.  We started our planning in the spring and in the end the entire guild pulled together to make it happen. 

 The items in the sale depend upon what individual members have been working on so the sale committee has to improvise at the last minute to create a cohesive show.  They did a great job.     

We should also recoginze the spouses with their trucks and jeeps and trailers who do the heavy lifting when it comes to moving props and tables especially in the rain.  Their patience, good humour and willingness to support us are appreciated. We love you guys!
