Take out a membership and receive the Journal issues and CSO News sheets as well as a Membership Directory each year. See Membership page.
One special item of news in the Fall issue was the publication of CSOâ€™s first wall calendar, and it is not too far into the year to pick this up!Â Each month an original fashion print is shown, the earliest from 1770, the latest 1880, with commentary by Sarah Walker.Â The prints are in the colours of the originals, inks added by colourists working with the printers, since techniques did not allow colour printing. The calendar opens to 17â€³ long by 11â€³ wide, with poster stock paper, and coil-bound pagesâ€”a delightful, high quality costume addition to your year.
Proceeds go directly to support the CSO, and the cost is $20 each plus $2.65 postage (total$22.65). For mail orders, make your cheque out to â€œCostume Society of Ontarioâ€ and send it with your name and address to Costume Society of Ontario, Box 981, Station F, Toronto, ONÂ M4Y 2N9
