Hello All,

As you may have heard, Freda Hopper, our long-time President of the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond (TAGOR) passed away at the end of March.

To honour her memory, TAGOR will be hosting a special event on Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Richmond Cultural Centre. Please see the attached poster for details.

We invite all lovers of fabric and textile arts to drop by to share a Freda story and pick up a fabric remembrance or two. Her Celebration of Life will be held in June.

Best, Vickie McLeod
