 Virtual Stride to Turn the Tide 

May 1-June 30, 2021

Click on the map below and visit our Travel Log for up-to-date details including our current progress.

On May 1st we started our adventure by virtually boarding the ferry and sailing to Powell River, where the Powell River Sunshine Gogos had hosted the Turning the Tide Fabric Art exhibition at the Cranberry Senior Centre from September 18-20, 2010.

Our groups are linked not only by the ferry but also by a common purpose. For many years they have been making beautiful granny bags. Over 300 pieces of art were donated for their April 2020 Art from the Attic event that was planned as a joint fundraiser for Sunshine Gogos and Hospice. Unfortunately this event was postponed due to the pandemic. Their members have attended regional gatherings hosted by the Glacier Grannies.

A nice relaxed ferry ride!

For our Virtual Stride 2021, we will revisit 15 of the communities that hosted the exhibition, hear stories from the project, and catch up with the various Grandmother Groups along the way. Our progress will be mapped on our website, and stories of past and present experiences will be shared via Facebook.

For more information about the Textile Art Exhibition go to Past Events. To donate to our team, or to join us, click here. Our team name is Comox Valley Glacier Grannies.


Art From the Attic

The Glacier Grannies have made the decision to postpone Art From The Attic until a later date.
