Monday at Triennial

Breakfast for all was delightful, off we went to workshops, excursions including a  private viewing of select Emily Carr rugs and twined pieces and the Robert Bateman Gallery , panel discussions (videoed for our archives), lunch together and more of the same variety of fibre/art experiences for the afternoon.

The rug display opened in the early evening to members and invited guests in the region including Jan Ross from the Emily Carr House, dinner was on our own with new friends.

We are 4 Rug Hooker’s and would like to come to the TIGHR next October. We understand we have to be members. Wondered what the additional costs are for attending the Conference?
Heather Ritchie has invited me to put up our rug hooking display at the conference.
Looking forward to hearing from you .

Hi Lynda,
We would love to see the four of you in Swaledale next October and yes – you must be members to attend the Triennial.
We will be releasing full information about the event, including full details of the workshops and the costs, in the next TIGHR Newsletter (due out in November) and, if you join soon, you will be able to get the facts before non-members. If not, keep an eye on these pages: soon after members get the information, it will be released to the world!
With kind regards,
