Frances Robson - Juxtaposing Women's Groups

With the Saskatoon groups I was more interested in looking at sort of the diversity of interests that women had at that particular point in time. In the catalogue here you see the quilt guild displayed on the top, and on the bottom are army and navy and airforce veterans. The quilt guild is what I would think of as more sort of feminine, sewing and visiting together, whereas the army seems more like a more masculine persuasion. And even in the way that they are organized, the quilt guild is sort of all in a group with everybody around, but the army, navy and airforce veterans, there’s the commanders in front and the troops sitting away. Even in the space, in how they organize themselves, it represents a different idea of how they relate to each other.
