Those who attended our September meeting have already had the pleasure of meeting Natalie Griller and Geoff Clark, the lovely duo behind Nunavut Qiviut. This time they are generously returning as a Sponsor of our Guild! (PS – the recording of the September meeting is still available for Members to watch on the Meeting Videos page of our website.)Continue reading
This September, we’ll be traveling, virtually, to Kugluktuk, Nunavut north of the Arctic Circle where the cool air of autumn has arrived. Nunavut Qiviut creates unique luxury yarns from rare and sustainable Arctic fibres such as Qiviut from Muskox and supports the traditional Inuit lifestyle of their community.
Natalie Griller and Geoff Clark have prepared a full overview of Nunavut Qiviut, including the geography, ecosystem and the people of Kugluktuk, community involvement, Muskox and the history of Qiviut, and of course, the yarn and the luxurious products available. You’ll come away with a great sense of life in Kugluktuk and you’ll certainly enjoy your friendly visit with Natalie & Geoff.
The meeting will be OPEN TO ALL, join as an attendee via the link below:
