In celebration of the Guild’s 90th anniversary, we are holding a Garment Challenge, Fashion Show and Tea on May 5, 2024, starting at 1:00 pm. The event will be held at the Victoria Scottish Community Centre at 1803 Admirals Road. Parking is limited so car-pooling or public transportation is encouraged. Please approach from the Gorge Road area for easy access to the parking lot.

While waiting for the Fashion Show to begin, you’ll be enjoying a light and lovely tea and visiting with members and guests.

We have 24 entries for the Fashion Show which will be reviewed by independent judges on April 10, 2024. We have many awards and prizes which the judges will determine.

We are still looking for a volunteer (or two) to help the models with dressing and stying the garments so they look their best. An excellent opportunity to have a good look at the workmanship of the entries. Please send an email to if you are interested. We’d love to have your help!

Registration to attend the Fashion Show on May 5 is now closed.

Watch here for the People’s Choice voting which will be available in the week AFTER the Show.
