Dates this year - October 18th to 20th
May 1st this website is available for registrations and the new choices for 2019 are complete. We have classes taught by Joyce McLellan, Ionna McCauley, Sandy Melnyk, Christine O'Neill, Cynthia Minden, Isabelle Fusey, Paddy O'Connell, Sarah Wroot, Sarah Thornton, Barb Round, Eileen Neill, Megan Hanna and Dante Ambriel. Lots of different media and projects. Another great year in the making!
We will have some additional entertainment this year in the evenings. On Friday Evening after supper in the Back hall, Joyce McLellan will be showing her amazing quilt work in a traditional trunk show. On Saturday we will have a slide show of Sarah Wroot's "Visible Mending". This is mending which basically has turned ordinary into a show piece. Each of these evenings will have an admission fee of $5 (such a deal) to pay the instructors and they will each start at 7:30 pm.
We are also lining up a special visit from the Denman and District Lace Club which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. This group originally rowed over to Denman once a week to work together on their bobbin lace. They now meet in Cumberland and Comox alternate weeks and are still going strong. They will join us for the day on Friday October 18th and will teach a simple pattern for any who would like to try it. This event is free to the public. See samples from the early days at the Denman museum.
Some classes are large and have lots of space; some are tiny. (Yikes!) If you are fascinated by a certain topic and KNOW you want to be there, make sure you get your name in. There is no penalty for cancellations if life happens and gets in the way. We are very user-friendly, volunteer-run, and just out to share a great weekend with kindred spirits.
On the other hand, let us know as soon as possible if you do have to cancel because we often have wait-lists for these small classes, especially the ones we have never offered before.
The caterers are willing to make dietary adjustments for a certain amount of dietary restrictions but if you have multiple allergies etc please confirm that we can accommodate your needs. Thanks
