Stitch in PUBLIC Events

Our guild hosts a few different styles of "Stitch in Public" events during the year.  The biggest one is Stampede.  We volunteer with two part of Stampede, the Western Showcase Demonstrations and the Hawkwood Heritage Cabin.

 

The Western Showcase Art show is a combination of professional artist booths and the art competition.  We, along with other craft groups, volunteer to show off our skills to the public.

 

The Hawkwood Heritage Cabin is a recreation of a "Summer Kitchen" on a ranch where food could be prepared away from the main house to keep it cooler.  We, along with other craft groups, volunteer to show off our work along with dressing the part.  The cabin has aprons volunteers wear, or members have created their own costumes!

 

We also welcome any stitcher to our monthly Sit n' Stitch events in various libraries around Calgary.  We may also organize a "Stitch in the Park" event depending on the weather.

2023 - CALGARY STAMPEDE

So we forgot to take photos this year at Hawkwood Heritage Cabin!

CALGARY STAMPEDE

Every year we celebrate fibre crafts by stitching in public during the Stampede in Calgary.  Join us at the BMO centre and view all the great work submitted to the Western Showcase Art Show.  On the last weekend of Stampede we have volunteers at the Heritage Cabin stitching on the porch and inside.  Learn more about the Summer Kitchen from Stampede Volunteers and see what each of us is working on.
