CANADIAN EH!   Canada, such a unique country, has weaving traditions dating back hundreds of years.  Influenced by First Nations, immigrants from all over, and traditional Canadian skills, the mosaic of Canadian Weaving is rich and varied.  Searching from coast to coast, styles such as Salish, Acadian and French-Canadian emerge.  Names like Mary Black and Dorothy Burnham, and techniques of Chilkat blankets, catalogues, Jacquard coverlets and 21st Century “Smart fabrics” are now part of a multi-faceted Canadian textile tradition. Let’s explore the Canadian textile world!
