I had a wonderful weekend, reconnecting with friends.
Saturday was very special. My husband, Ron, has been a member of the Kinsmen Club for most of his adult life. Kinsmen is a community service organization that works within the local communities to provided much needed services, from sponsoring a children’s fishing derby, providing support to seniors and persons with disabilities to fundraising for victims of raging forest fires. On Saturday night, Ron was honoured with a Life Membership of Kin Canada by the Kinsmen Club of Coquitlam for “Outstanding Contribution to the Club and Community”. Although Ron was unable to be present in person, due to work responsibilities, he was able to join through Skype. You gotta love technology. The event was attended by our close friends in the family of Kin. Congratulations Ron. Thank you all.
Sunday morning I spent at Knit City Social. This is the second year for this event in Vancouver, a gathering of people who like knitting, spinning and other yarn related activities, with an offering of workshops and regional vendors. Although I arrived in town too late to sign up for the workshops, I enjoyed the atmosphere and visiting the vendors and displays, and seeing some of my weaving friends there as well. In the afternoon I joined other friends at the spin-in at Place des Arts. The spin-in was in conjunction with Place des Arts 40th anniversary and our Handweaving and Hand-spinning display “Dreamweaver, from the Fantastical to the Practical”. It was a wonderful welcome back to my fiber community.
