WINNIPEG EMBROIDERER'S GUILD

DESCRIPTION

The Winnipeg Embroiderers' Guild (WEG) celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013. WEG spearheaded the founding of the Embroidery Association of Canada (EAC), and every year, EAC holds a national seminar and in 2013 it was in Winnipeg. As a 40th anniversary project, WEG decided to design and register its own tartan, a sample of which WEG members could wear to identify them as hosting members so that seminar attendees would know who to seek out for help.

The colours chosen are pink and cream, the official colours of WEG, blue one of the official colours of EAC as well as for the many lakes and rivers in the province of Manitoba and yellow for the wheat grown in the province and its legendary many days of sunshine.

This tartan was designed by Nicole Collette and Gillian Miller.
