Winnipeg Show March 19th!

It’s Showtime! Christmas craft fair season is in full swing

Drakestail is on the road now that Christmas craft fair season is in full swing.  This past Saturday I took part in the annual craft fair at All Saints Catholic High School.  I had a great time two years ago at this fair, and was thrilled to be back.  This is a huge craft fair, spread throughout the school.  The variety of crafters selling their wares was impressive too.  My nearest neighbours were selling handmade bath and body goodies, baked treats, hand-sewn purses & tooth fairy pillows (too cute!), stained glass, woodworking art, clothes, knit hats & scarves, the list goes on.  The volunteers were fantastic, and the whole sale had a great vibe.  I definitely hope to be back next year.

I like to bring projects to work on during the quieter times of the day.  I get to show off some of my techniques, let clients see my process, and add some new things to the table as well.  Plus, I’m doing what I love while I hang out and talk to people about doing what I love.  That’s what I call a win-win situation!

A big thanks, and time to relax.

I had the perfect send-off to the Christmas craft show season with the Shenkman Arts Centre‘s Baz’ART event this past weekend.  I had a great time meeting visitors, seeing some exceptional art and artisanal work, and getting to know the other vendors.  A big thanks to all the organizers for their hard work!  The event was a huge success and a lot of fun.

That’s it for my in-person appearances for 2011.  I’ll add my roster of shows for 2012 to the calendar on the right-hand side of the site as I confirm them.  For now, I’ll be concentrating on getting more items in the Etsy store in time for Christmas shopping.  Have a special request? Drop me an email and I’ll see what I can do!
