Registration notes: The Winnipeg Embroiderers’ Guild (WEG) celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2013. WEG spearheaded the founding of the Embroidery Association of Canada (EAC). Every year, EAC holds a national seminar and in 2013 it will be in Winnipeg. As a 40th anniversary project, WEG decided to design and register its own tartan, a sample of which WEG members could wear to identify them as hosting members so that seminar attendees would know who to seek out for information or assistance. The colours chosen are pink and cream – the official colours of WEG, blue – one of the official colours of EAC as well as for the many lakes and rivers in the province of Manitoba and yellow for the wheat grown in the province and its legendary many days of sunshine. This tartan was designed by Nicole Collette and Gillian Miller.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
