The March program has traditionally been a special lecture named in memory of Ruth Anstey, one of several members, who left money to the guild after her death. This year the guild celebrates its 85 birthday. The program presents the Salish Weavers. The library will be open and Texere will have a table where members can pick up advertising posters, hanging and sales tags, etc.
The Salish Weavers: Hereditary Chief Janice George and Buddy Joseph, both of the Squamish Nation will be sharing their knowledge of wool weaving practiced by their people. They are active weavers and teachers now. They value how weaving, ancestry, identity and community create connection and understanding between people now and to their past. They created L’hen Awtxw Weaving House to explain their journey in weaving and education.
