Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild

This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

PUCHKA Peru Textile Tours

The world is changing - some traditions are being set aside, others are
being reclaimed and after all these years of delightful experiences with
participants from around the world, for which we are very grateful, our
final tour dates will be:

22 day with 8 days of Workshops tour: 20 September - 11 October

11 day Studios/Mini-Workshops tour: 14 - 24 October

This will be your last chance to see the real Peru with PUCHKA and to meet
and work with your Peruvian counterparts. Our intention is that these will
be the best tours ever and we invite you along. After 2013 the focus of
PUCHKA will change so that we are more engaged with the projects we support
in our beloved Peru.

We would appreciate it very much if you would forward this to your guilds
and other textile communities. Thank you very much from all of us involved
with PUCHKA Peru.

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all
peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if
we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”
