The Trail Historical Society is pleased to announce a new temporary display Threads of Our Past is now open in the Columbia Gallery in the Trail Riverfront Centre.
“This exhibit showcases one of the largest items in the Trail Historical Society’s collection, a handmade loom from 1936,” said Elinor Morrissey, Trail Museum & Archives Interim Manager. “It also showcases local seamstress Giorgina Binotto and her contributions to the community of Trail through her sewing. Come in and learn about how fabric and clothing were made in the past.”
“With the help of two members of the Selkirk Weavers and Spinners Guild, Maddy Harlamovs and Trisha Rasku, we have been able to get the loom working again,” said Morrissey. “They can be seen weaving a blanket on Tuesday mornings between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.”
