With my Needle is a wonderful show! It opened on Tuesday evening this week and despite a typically rainy Vancouver February evening we had a great time celebrating the work of our members. The show is a great mix of styles and techniques and shows off the diversity and talent of the members, we really do cover all the bases.
Here’s a brief snapshot of some of the work on display…
Many, many thanks to the committee (and the team at the Silk Purse) for their tireless efforts in making this show such a success.
Just in case you missed the opening..
..there were lots of tasty treat for those who braved the rain…
and with thanks to presidents past and present
…we all had a great time!
