Pieces: Celebrating Textiles is a new festival in downtown Courtenay.

Textiles festival rejigged

Now a one-day event Saturday, March 28

A series of unavoidable setbacks has Pieces: Celebrating Textiles rejigged into an amazing one-day event Saturday, March 28 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

Pieces will still feature Charllotte Kwon, Leanne Prain, Beth Boyce and The Global Conversation Panel. Each, in unique ways, investigates how textiles penetrate our world, our lives and our closets.

There will also be a showcase of artisan textiles, techniques and treasures as well as kids workshops at the Courtenay Museum.

There are fun pieces for the public to explore that day also. Laughing Oyster Bookshop has a textile book display on. Red Living will show you how to use chalk paint for your upholstery and linens. Zocalos is hosting the Pieces free Make and Mend table, where you can learn a few skills over lunch or coffee.

And then there is the big surprise that has to do with many pieces and many anonymous donors as well as the Berwick Guerilla Grannies. FMI 250-338-4747 or piecescelebratingtextiles.com
