Biographical history

The Sanavisak Guild was formed on September 8, 1965 by a group of women from Pine Point. The objectives of the guild were twofold; to allow women to meet on a regular basis and work together on handicraft projects; and to provide instruction for women who wanted to learn new craft skills. The first executive consisted of Esther Scarborough (President), Bubbles Hodgson (Vice-president), Dolores Logan (Secretary), Muriel Hampton (Treasurer), and Dolly Lovlin (Class convenor). The guild remained in operation until the town of Pine Point was closed in 1987.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This fonds consists of 79 colour photographs that were in an album compiled by members of the Sanavisak Guild in Pine Point. The accession also contains the minutes of a meeting held on September 8, 1965 to discuss the formation of the guild; two guild newsletters, one from March 1982 and the other from 1983; and the programme for the guild's 10th Anniversary dinner and dance. The photographs document many of the activities of the Sanavisak Guild in Pine Point between 1969 and 1984. The majority of the images are well identified. Activities depicted include craft and bake sales, Christmas parties and floats decorated by the guild for the annual Pine Days parade and celebrations.
