Some venues are actually going to happen this year. I have not participated in a Craft Show for several years now, so I am going to dig out my tent and canopy and decide what stock to bring. I never know how to pack, especially for a one day small show because I am just not a minimalist. But if you are interested looking at any of the items that are in my virtual shop, please send me a note www.handweaving.ca and I will be sure to bring that piece along. My prices will be 10% lower than on my website because there will be no postage costs (I had added them into the website prices).
First venue of the year is For the Love of Fibre, May 7, 10 to 4. located at 24 Sutton Dr., Johnstown Ontario, K0E 1T1 This is the first year for this festival, and to be cautious, I have booked a location indoors. Both air conditioning and heating are possible, there will be a roof over our heads, I am ready for anything.
I have signed again up for the GARDEN MARKET PARTY which will be held in Winchester. This is an outdoor event and in its second year. There will be 20 plus vendors, makers and growers on 6 dates, May 14, June 19th, July 10th, July 24th, Aug. 14th, Sept 10th, and Oct. 9th, from 10-3 each day. Vendors will be set up in the grounds of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, 517 Main St., Winchester (look for my space in the shade) and also at The Planted Arrow at 535 St. Lawrence St., Winchester. We will be following the guidelines of the EOHU, as per the evolving Corona Virus protocols.
I will also be participating in the extraordinary large and well juried and organized Twist Festival, Whissell Complex, St-Andre-Avellin, Outaouasi Region PQ. Aug. Fri. Aug. 12 from 11 to 5, Sat. Aug 13 from 9 to 5 and Sun. Aug 14 from 10 to 4. For more information try email@example.com
