Celebrate the story of Cowichan sweaters

By Anonymous

British Columbians wear their Cowichan sweaters with pride. This Sunday, you can show yours off at the Victoria launch of Sylvia Olsen’s new book: Working with Wool: A Coast Salish Legacy and the Cowichan Sweater, published by Sono Nis Press.

Wear your sweater or other Cowichan knit and hear Olsen give a reading from her new work. Some of the oldest Cowichan sweaters will be on display, including one made 90 years ago.

The event takes place December 5 at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (1040 Moss Street) from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is free to the public. Drinks and snacks will be served.
