Shuswap Spinners & Weavers - Annual Christmas Sale

The Shuswap Spinners & Weavers Guild held our annual Christmas sale this past Saturday, November 24, 2012 at the Salmon Arm Art Gallery where it was once again attended with great enthusiasm.  The ladies tell me that the gallery was "packed" all morning and well into the afternoon.  Many beautiful items found their way into the hands of new owners and I'm sure more than one hand-made treasure will find its way under the tree this year.  Here is a sampling of some of the beautiful work done by our talented guild. 

....and one last picture of our lovely ladies putting the final touches on things before the doors open. 

Thank you to all of those that made our event another HUGE SUCCESS this year. The Shuswap Spinners & Weavers appreciate your patronage and can't THANK YOU enough for attending our gala. We hope to see you again next year!!
