Fabrics in Our Lives is a new program for 2012 offered by True North Foundation, for seniors and adults mentored by seniors, bringing the tradition of textiles into the context of our local living environment.

In this program, under the mentorship of Nancy Tordoff-Ives, seniors and adults create and realize original embroidery and other fabric designs based on observing local native plant species and visual impressions found regionally in our community in Southern Ontario.

These natural motifs will embellish a variety of personal projects, including practical everyday items such as placemats, runners, and tablecloths as a recreation of traditional needlecrafts.

If you would like more information on this program or would just like to join in, please call our office at 416-322-5596.
