Stitch-by-Stitch visits Monday Art Group

On Monday, July 24th Monday Art Group were very pleased to have an artists visit from Helene Vosters and her Stitch-by-Stitch: A TRC Sewing Circle & Reading Group project of sewing the Action Items from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools, onto small Canadian flags. Many of us sat around a table and worked together talking about the project, our everyday experiences with Indigenous struggles, institutionalization and the issue of reconciliation with Indigenous nations. At one point a couple of art group members read aloud from “Final Report: Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.” It was really wonderful to have a visiting artist and people expressed to Helene that she would be welcome back again – she has a lot of sewing to do and MAG is eager to help!
