Ravenswing: 10th anniversary show

Ravenswing Arts Music Fair 2016

Just one week from today, Trish and I will be celebrating a very special event: the Ravenswing Arts and Music Fair‘s 10th anniversary!

Way back in 2009, Roxy and I signed up for our very first craft fair: Ravenswing! We had a lot of fun, and it really got us hooked on doing craft fairs.  Ravenswing 2009

Since then, we’ve been at every Ravenswing fair except one. Drakestail has grown a lot as a company over the years, developing our style, our displays (that blue tablecloth!!), and our work. It has been wonderful to come back each year to Ravenswing as it has developed and grown as well.  Every year the fair gets a bit bigger, runs a bit smoother, and the team organizing it continues to do an amazing job bringing together artisans, writers, musicians, workshops, and more.  Despite the growth and change, all the best parts of Ravenswing persist – great music, a fantastically eclectic collection of vendors, and a great vibe. They also do important work hosting the Clothesline Project, a public art exhibit dedicated to raising awareness of violence against women and children, and giving voices to the survivors.

We’re very much looking forward to being at Minto Park again this year, especially for the 10th anniversary. Join us in celebrating this fantastic fair on Sunday, May 29th!

Now announcing: Drakestail at Ravenswing!

I’m excited to announce that Drakestail has another show in our 20014 line-up! On May 25th we’ll be back at the Ravenswing DIY Fair! Ravenswing holds a special place in our hearts because it was the very first show we ever attended, way back in May 2008. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, and we had a great time meeting fans and talking about our jewellery. It’s an outdoor fair, located at Minto Park, close to downtown at Elgin Street and Lewis Street. It has really good variety in vendors, from jewellery and pottery to small-press and self-published zines, from preserves and cupcakes to seedlings. Each year the line-up changes and there’s lots to see. There’s always live musicand a DJ, and a very relaxed, laid-back atmosphere.

Two years ago we shared our tent with a close friend of mine, who was selling preserves and delicious treats. I’m excited to announce that we’ll be sharing a tent again! His brand new business, called Sing for Icing, will feature loaves and cakes and other goodies. We hope you can make it!
