MacLeod has also been involved with the Ephraim Scott Presbyterian Church, Centre Bras d’Or for the Performing Arts, was a member of the Alexander Graham Bell Ladies Club, and sits on the Board of Directors of the Gaelic College.

Eveline MacLeod and her co-writer Daniel MacInnes show a strong passion for their topic throughout the book, and Eveline's photographs really increased my enjoyment of the work. This is a great read for anyone interested in the history of textiles, crafting or Cape Breton Island - I'm looking forward to recommending it to members of my crafting guild.
