Our Souvenir Program Cover

Gansilyo /ɡänsilyo/ (from Spanish  ganchillo) Ilonggo term meaning v. to make a piece of needlework by looping thread with a hooked needle; or n. a  needlework made by looping thread with a hooked needle. Gansilyo had been a popular hobby among women when they held the stereotyped role of tending the home and the kids. But as women get out of the homes to join the workforce and traditional women roles vanish,  so do traditional hobbies like gansilyo. They lost their appeal for being impractical and time consuming. The homes are now draped with manufactured fabrics, while the handmade gansilyo are mothballed in comodas as dainty heirlooms. hbc
