The community is invited to an International Women's Day celebration at Linwood House in Roberts Creek next Friday, March 7. A warm welcome, delicious refreshments, live entertainment and inspiring guest speakers await everyone who attends this year's celebration of women from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Inspiring Change is the motivational message of this year's global celebration and a message that also resonates with the work of Linwood House in embracing women of all cultures to engage in expressive arts, visioning and transformational friendships. This year, Linwood is recognizing the art of quilting and its colourful, long-cherished expression of story-telling and remembering. Like Linwood, quilts and quilting provide warmth, comfort and patterns for new pathways.

In recognition of this theme, prizes include a beautifully crafted quilt by Susan Wood, gift certificates for The Artist and the Quiltmaker B& and Carolla's, and copies of Sue Monk Kidd's newly-published book The Invention of Wings.

There will be many more prizes and surprises as guests enjoy the music of pianist Ken Dalgleish and vocalist Jacqueline Allan and presentations by Carol Bowie and Jeannette Lucas of the Sunshine Coast Quilters' Guild.

Come celebrate the resilience, imagination and emancipation of women at Linwood. The ticket price of $25 includes wine, appetizers and desserts.

For tickets and more information, call Carol Anne at 604-375-1977 or Linwood House at 604-740-3757.
