Youth Groups

The Thread Whisperers

The Thread Whisperers were previously called the Sunshine Stitchers. They are the Guild’s youth group and they decided to change their name. The girls range from 7 to 17 years of age and are members of the national organization as well as our local guild.   They work on small projects, generally involving ever expanding techniques, entries for the Saanich Fair where they have had great success and projects the girls are working on independently. Once a project is completed we move on to something new.  There are projects for the beginner as well as the more experienced stitchers.  The cost is nominal and all the project materials are donated.
