Stitching in Spirit: Porcupine Quillwork with Nicole Dube

March 4, 2019

In the Spirit of Truth and Reconciliation, join us for a Stitching Circle that brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff, students, faculty, and community members. Set time aside in your busy schedule to stitch, spin, knit, sew, quilt, crochet, bead, embroider, or hook. Circle gatherings are an informal way to share time, thoughts, ideas, and skills through the language of needle and fibre arts.

Special Workshop
Nicole Dube, Mik’maq Cultural Coordinator at Fort Folly First Nation, will be giving a special workshop on porcupine quillwork. This event is offered free of charge and materials are provided, but space is limited. To sign up, please contact the Owens at owens@mta.ca.

Regular Drop-In
Join us anytime between 7 and 9 pm with your current projects. Stay for just thirty minutes or the full two hours. This is an informal event and all are welcome to attend. Materials will be provided. Participants are also welcome to bring their own supplies from home.

We would like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians (from all four directions), of the land on which we gather. It is upon the unceded ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaq people, that Mount Allison University is built. While this area is known as Sackville, NB, the territory is part of the greater territory of Mi’kma’ki.

For more information, news about upcoming events or interest in participating, please contact: Dr. Lisa Binkley, Centre for Canadian Studies, lbinkley@mta.ca.
