You are invited to.....

You are invited to Elegant Threads, our annual show and sale.  

The members of the Qualicum Weavers and Spinners guild will be holding their annual show and sale from Friday November 27th to Sunday November 29th.  Members have been working all year to produce one of a kind items including hand spun yarns, household linens, clothing and accessories.

You may also find some whimsical items that are just for fun.  There will be loads of potential Christmas presents just waiting to be found.  

We will be having demonstrations of weaving and spinning so if you have ever wondered about "slow" yarn, "slow" cloth or "slow" cloth made from "slow" yarn come and see how it is done.

 Be aware that we love to talk about our craft and are more than willing to explain the how and even the why of the items that we made.  Often it is the story behind a piece that gives it a certain value you can't find in mass manufacturing.  We work to create a relaxed atmosphere that encourages people to stop and chat.  We hope you will stop by, have a cup of cider and enjoy the show.  

Where is all the fun happening?

Our sale takes place at Rotary House in down town Qualicum Beach. 

Rotary House is located at 211 Fern Road west at the corner of Beach and Fern.  It is about half way between The Old School House Art Gallery  and the Civic Centre.

There will be a Winter Art Walk with locations throughout Qualicum Beach so wear your walking shoes and plan to spend the day.  Check the Old School House Art Galley for details.

The hours for the sale are as follows

Friday, November 27, 11 am to 6 pm
Saturday, November 28, 10 am to 5 pm
Sunday, November 29, 10 am to 3 pm.
