We had a fascinating time!
On Thursday June 7th The Toronto Guild of Stitchery had their end of year party.  Our Guild members had been enchanted with the lovely fascinator hats worn at the Queen’s Jubilee and William and Kate’s Royal Wedding.  Our program committee challenged members to create a fascinator for our end of year party.  Our lively group did not disappoint!  Our program committee awarded prizes for multiple categories.  Prizes were awarded for “the widest hat, the most stitching on a hat, the hat with the most material, the hat you most wanted to take home, etc. 

One fascinator presented a stitching theme and was decorated with stitching accessories (scissors, spools, measuring tape etc.)  Another very posh fascinator had a beautiful copper base but upon closer inspection it was a copper pot scrubber in disguise!  Another fascinator rose up into the air and with arms outstretched and feet wrapped around the wears chin.  One bonnet was not stitched but an heirloom from Eleanor Kerr’s grandmother from the late 1800’s.  It was incredible and received applause!

We had a wonderful day, a great lunch and it was fun dressing-up.  Fascinating!!

Our National Stitch in Public Day is fast approaching.  September 27th is officially our National Stitch in Public Day but celebrations will be taking place during the days before and after that date.  I have made a contact information sheet to make it easier to get all the details for publicizing the events.   

If possible please take some photos of your event and send them to communications@eac.ca and our webmaster Tara at webmster@eac.ca.
