I would like to send a Letter of Thanks to you personally, as well as to TimminsToday for your excellent recent coverage of the Porcupine Handweavers and Spinners Guild’s 45th Anniversary Exhibition at the Timmins Museum: NEC.
We are fortunate to have such professional local media coverage available to us in Timmins and area.
The PHSG has had a wonderful response to its ongoing 45th Anniversary Exhibition, A Treasury of Textiles, at the Timmins Museum: NEC, which has now been extended to June 5, 2022.
Your engaging article and photos of this event in TimminsToday, no doubt, contributed to the public interest in our show.
Our Guild is very fortunate to have the support of the Timmins Museum: NEC, its dedicated staff and the caring, considerate curation of Karen Bachmann. It is no small feat to showcase so many textiles so well, weaving throughout, articles and paintings from the museum’s permanent collection.
At every stage of preparing this exhibition, the creative connections and collaborations of “head, heart and hand” have been our guiding touchstones.
Everyone involved in bringing this show to fruition has been a pleasure and is to be commended.
The Guild would also like to take this opportunity to publicly express its gratitude to the people of Timmins and surrounding areas, including Foleyet, Iroquois Falls and Black River-Matheson for the community interest and support.
It is the creative, caring community of Northern Ontario that this exhibition truly celebrates, which will enable the PHSG to confidently continue for another 45 years and beyond.
