A quick update on my upcoming craft season is due! I've been working furiously to have sufficient inventory for the upcoming fairs. Because I have decided (yet again!) to go back to school I've been juggling my time in ways I hadn't thought possible. As I'm sure fellow craftspeople will appreciate - there's nothing like a time crunch to light a fire under your productivity! Below is my calendar of events. I will update this post with the relevant links as promotions for some of these events is not yet underway.
I have managed to make some old favourites as well as new work that I'm excited to launch at my first big event, the Craft Council of Newfoundland & Labrador's Christmas Craft Fair, November 9-13th. I hope you will join us for our second year in Torbay at the Jack Byrne Arena. If you missed last year, I'm sure you at least heard the buzz about what a successful change in venue this was for us. Tons of parking, all the shopping on one level - it promises to be another fabulous event this year. You'll find me in booth #105.
The Printers' Fair held upstairs from Rocket Bakery, in the Rocket Room. 10-4. I have notecards made this year! As well as a couple of new prints, exploring new techniques I've learned.
The Quidi Vidi Plantation Christmas Open House is always a fun event for me. And it's a hit with the public too! If this year's event is anything like previous years' you won't want to miss this festive day of music and treats and fine craft! Drop by November 26th to see what the resident studio artists have been working on, as well as a select number of invited artists like myself.
My final event of the season is the Anna Templeton Tea & Sale, December 9, 10, & 11th. Another great event that makes a fine day out. Plan to come and shop three floors of fine craft, and break up your browsing with lunch in the tearoom. The food is homemade and delicious! You'll find my booth, as in previous years, at the back of the second floor.
