Artisan Inventory

The Textile Artisan Inventory is and will always be a work in progress. We thank Vancouver Island University’s Nicole Vaugeois, BC Regional Innovation Chair in Tourism and Sustainable Rural Development and her team of students for getting our Inventory started in the Fall of 2015.


LoriNow we are continuing to collect the names and contact information for Textile Artisan and makers on Vancouver Island and from the surrounding areas including Powell River and the Northern Sunshine Coast. We can include your details regarding workshops and other services offered. Eventually  we hope this will become an inexpensive place to advertise your upcoming shows, sales events, programs, workshops and other offerings.


For now the main goals for the Inventory are to share it with those who are looking for Artisans for events, trade shows, gallery exhibits, to work in the film industry as well as to help artists find each other. Mostly the inventory is for Pieces to get a handle on how many of us are out there and to find out what are we up to!


We plan to include Vancouver Island and other more or less local textile suppliers who offer related materials. Yarn stores, fabric sellers, spinners, how to materials, booksindex and so on are welcome to become part of the inventory. Contact us for further details.


Stay tuned for further information coming soon.
