This International Women’s Day, let’s give a big shout-out to the women who made “The Cowichan Sweater: Our Knitted History” film possible! We raise our hands to Mary Galloway and Tiffany Joseph the executive producers and to the hardworking all-Indigenous crew, these women poured their hearts into sharing this important story.

The film explores the history of the sweaters in the Cowichan and Saanich territories on Vancouver Island and the traditional knitters from these communities. We congratulate their dedication to preserving our cultural heritage and showcasing the beauty of Cowichan Sweaters.

Join us for a virtual screening tonight to honour these amazing women and celebrate their achievements! 🎬✨
