New Feature Exhibit Stitching Stories, Now Open At Government House

Released on September 11, 2020

The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) invites all residents to enjoy the brand new Stitching Stories Exhibit now open at Government House.

“Volunteers from the Regina Stitchery Guild have done a remarkable job of preserving and caring for the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada’s Heritage collection,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Lori Carr said.  “In these unprecedented times, there is familiarity in tradition and creativity.  This wonderful exhibit features stunning textiles with embroidery in various forms dating back hundreds of years, highlighting changes to the art of embroidery over that period.”

The exhibit opened in early September and showcases more than 60 pieces ranging from a 1797 sampler to a 1911 wedding dress featuring handmade bands of lace.  In 2003, chapter members of the Regina Stitchery Guild partnered with Government House as place to house and care for this collection.  The collection includes more than 1,000 items from purses, evening bags, embroidered bags, dollies, lace work and much, much more.

The Stitching Stories exhibit will remain up at Government House until February 28, 2021.  This exhibit will be included in your private Government House tour.  Tours are available for one family group or social bubble up to nine people.  Visitors will need to pre-book.  It is mandatory for visitors and tour guides to wear masks and physically distance at all time during the tour.  Government House will have increased and rigorous sanitization after each tour.

Government House tour bookings can be made by using the online booking form https://governmenthousesk.ca/visit-us/admission#Form or by calling 306-526-7090.
