It's That Time Again!

Hey Hey!

It hardly seems possible, but we're gearing up for our annual Student Sale already! In just a few short weeks, the Textile Art Students and Alumni will be showcasing their amazing skills yet again at Capilano University on November 22nd, 2011.

As a little taste of what's to come, I've had the opportunity of viewing a particularly adorable item and on one of the cutest and most cuddly of friends. Thanks D!
 "I actually knit & felted quite a few of them a couple of years ago and sold them through a dog store – I branded them ‘Little Bicci’s’ (scarves).  I plan on weaving some fabric and felting it, then making them up into a similar scarf. I will probably do some needle felting on them as well. It’s the time!! I also wanted to do some toys (felted) [If I have the time]."  - Deirdre Phillips

Thanks for another fantastic sale!

A big thank you to everyone who came out and supported us at the sale! It was a little bit crazy but we had a fantastic time and I'd think it is safe to say we did pretty well as a group.

Here are some pictures from the sale in case you missed it. See you next year!

We're calling it the "Upper Ewok Village" look


We were very lucky to be given access to the display case beside the cafeteria, where we have set up a display to give a little preview of our work, and what will be available at the sale.


Hilary used her mad merchandising skills to put together a nice little display. Very fall-inspired, don't you think?

Time seems to be speeding up

Hard to believe the sale will be happening in just a few short weeks. Most of us are hard at work getting everything ready! We'll be posting a few sneak peeks soon, as well as some photos of our beautiful display case.

Signing off.......

It's been a fabulous two years, words cannot describe my love for this Textile Art Program. It has truly changed my life.  Come Fall I will begin the final two years of my degree in the Fibres Program at Concordia University in Montreal (along with Emily McIntyre).  I am very excited for what lays ahead.

So, I am signing off with the hopes that I will be attending the sale in the years to come as an alumni and look forward to seeing this site updated, in the many winter seasons to come, by future students.

Thanks for your support and interest in the Textiles Program Student Sale.  Come back next winter for updates on the next sale.
