Gloria Spence

Gloria Spence is a mother, grandmother, sister, and auntie, from Ebb and Flow First Nation in Manitoba. She learned how to sew from her mother who was a hardworking seamstress. Following in her mother's footsteps she wishes to keep the tradition alive by sharing her love of quilting and sewing. Although her mother's talents were mostly in quilt making, Gloria has expanded beyond that. She now makes tote bags, ceremony dresses/skirts, ribbon shirts, regalia and more. She proudly operates a small sewing business named Sewing Owl from her home in Winnipeg. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and is excited to pass on the tradition of sewing and regalia-making to youth.
