I’m not sure how many of our Guild members made New Year resolutions regarding the making of COVID cloth face masks. However, many members made some 4300 face masks in total for the Northwood Seniors Home, Halifax campus! This was in the early days of the pandemic in 2020, when the facility put out a call for such masks during times when PPEs were in short supply. For this, Lisa Roberts, Member of the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia representing Halifax Needham within which Northwood is located, made a Resolution (#453) for the Guild on April 13th, 2021!
Project Gutenberg, as it’s properly known rather than the colloquial Gutenberg Project, is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to preserve them for history and make them more accessible to the people. Here at the Atlantic Sewing Guild, we have some cultural works that need digitizing and archiving, to preserve them for history and make them more accessible to everyone. As a result, some original and long time members and I have volunteered to create the Guildenberg Project to bring the world the treasure trove of articles from the Guild’s storied past, all with the original authors’ permission, of course.
As of this evening, our Atlantic Sewing Guild blog has surpassed 100,000 views! The graph below shows viewing stats at this time. Thank you to all our readers and writers in the past 8 years or so! at this milestone, I thought it’d be fun to have a look back at some of our most popular posts. It would be a nice moment of nostalgia to our long time readers, but also introduce content to those new to the blog that they might not know exist here.
