We’ve both been extra busy these days. Here in Ottawa, it’s because Drakestail Jewellery has some upcoming appearances. I’ve been in my studio, working away on some exciting new pieces that will be coming to our two upcoming shows.
All Saints CHS Craft Fair & Fundraiser
First up, on Saturday, November 2nd, I’ll be at the All Saints Catholic High School’s annual craft fair. We were last there in 2011, and I’m excited to be going back and support some great causes. In the words of the organizer:
” This will be the 12th year that All Saints Catholic High School hosts this fundraiser with funds raised going toward the support of Grands & Friends, a group of local women who are raising funds for African Grandmothers who are taking care of millions of orphaned children due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa. Funds and dry goods collected at the door will support the school’s Christmas Hamper project in conjunction with the Kanata Food Cupboard and Victoria’s Quilts for cancer patients.
The fair features over 140 tables of treasures handmade by Crafters & Artisans from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. A supervised child’s play area, café, musical performances and raffle tables are just some of the added features of this event.”
Following a few weeks later, I’ll be sharing a table with Maiden Star Jewellery at the MAC Fair. The annual craft fair at Immaculata High School will be on Saturday, November 23rd, and features 120 handmade artists, door prizes, face painting, and more.
As I said before, I’ve been busy making some great designs for the fairs. Here’s a sneak peek of what will be available. Which one would you pick up? Would it be a gift for someone special, or a special gift for you?
