    Jeanne Sarson and Linda MacDonald, our excellent guest speakers at last year's Fall Gathering, have been working for over 20 years to have non-state torture recognized as a criminal offence in Canada. They have made presentations internationally in support of their work and they are sharing with us their recent  article that was published in a peer-reviewed  publication:

    No Longer Invisible: Families that Torture, Traffic and Exploit their Girl Child

    This is the follow-up to their presentation at the Institute in Spain.  It is free to download so Kanata members may be interested.

    The quilt display was stunning; the silent auction items were wonderfully varied; and the performers and audiences who attended the show - in spite of freezing rain – created a joyful evening of song, dance, laughter and goodwill. We are so grateful for all the energy and effort that came together to create such a triumph.

    Our scholarship fund is replenished, and we are already planning for next year’s Enchanted Mosaic. Many thanks to all of you who made this event a wonderful success. (Click on the photo to enlarge it.)

    We are Canadian - we can cope with this weather. Although it's cold outside, the high school is a buzz of activity right now. The show will go on as planned. Do join us.

    The quilts are all up and on display and they are stunning. The colors, the designs and the intricate needlework are exquisite. The performers are all there taking part in the dress rehearsal.  Do please join us for a lovely evening of art and music.
