Art For A Cause

Photographer Andrea Sirois has created some beautiful photos of a sampling of our work.  These are installed on the No 3 Rd art columns at Aberdeen Centre beneath the Canada Line.

TAGOR members enjoy making beautiful things for a variety of causes.

Some of our creations are purely art like the two wall hangings of orcas and flowers created by textile artists Pam Mahoney and Shirley Rampton seen below.

We also make quilts for comfort and warmth.  The African themed quilt below was created by a group of our members in support of another member who was having serious health issues.  We create and donate almost 200 quilts a year to several organizations in support and encouragement for people in declining health or changing life circumstances.  You can find out more here.

We are creative and like to expand our horizons beyond quilting.  Shown above, some members knit fidget muffs for people suffering from dementia.  As dementia deepens, their bodies become anxious and fidgety.  The muffs have lots of textures and tassels that allow the hands to explore and their bodies become calmer.

We are also concerned about the environment so we repurpose the used city banners into shopping bags to extend the life of the beautiful banners and reduce impact on landfill. See more of what we do here.

Join us!  We enjoy showing new members how to create beautiful items.

The art will be on display until July 31, 2020
