The Log Cabin Museum in the Saanichton neighbourhood of Central Saanich will hold the first of its popular Talk and Tea presentation after re-opening its doors.
Donna Otto, who hosts the Government House Costume Museum, will present Fashioning A Reign in describing the relationship between the fashion choices of the late Queen Elizabeth II and her time as monarch.
The presentation — which starts Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. in the Log Cabin Museum, 7910 Polo Park Cres. — draws on a display of the Queen’s wardrobe coinciding with her 90th birthday in 2016 spread across three locations in the United Kingdom.
Otto attended two of those locations and has created a presentation, which not only showcases many of the outfits the Queen had worn over those years but also offers background about the locations themselves.
Tea and refreshments follow. Admission is $5 for members and $7 for non-members.
The Log Cabin Museum is also open on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. with local spinners and knitters demonstrating their crafts and inviting others to join. The facility is open for groups at other times by appointment.
