Biographical history

The Royal Needlework Guild of Vancouver was organized in 1905 as an offshoot of the English group founded in 1883. The purpose was "to collect and distribute new, suitable garments to meet the great need of hospitals, homes and other charities. The organization continued its activities in Vancouver through to the 1950s. The guild also made new garments for the needy in Vancouver and hospitals in London, England. They would meet only twice a year to contribute their works and raise funds.
