My next show this fall is the Glebe Craft and Artisan Fair. This show has a beautiful venue in the Glebe Community Centre and the quality of artisans at this show is excellent. I do enjoy this one and am happy to be juried in for another year. Here is a link to their site with more details about the exhibitors. Glebe Craft and Artisan Fair 2014
On November 29 and 30 I will be at the Shenkman Centre in Orleans for Baz'ART. This is my first time at the show and I am looking forward to it. For more information about this art, craft, and live performance event and its participants go to Baz'ART
Having worked very hard this summer to prepare for the falls shows, I do have lots of stock and will spend this month making some new items.
I took part in the Ottawa chapter of the ETSY Made in Canada Show on Sept 27. Successful advertising brought thousands of people to the show. But it was unbearably hot that day inside the fieldhouse and vendors and customers alike were sweltering. I think I made the majority of my sales in the morning before the heat escalated although it was pretty warm when I arrived at 8 am. Wishing I had brought an electric fan. Also the wifi was not working which made it difficult for vendors like me who planned to use my Square Register with wifi. Attendance does indicate an interest in Etsy and hopefully will bring more people to online shopping. Who knew there were so many great craftspeople from the Ottawa area selling on ETSY.
I am also putting finishing touches (labels, wire etc) on my piece for the Stittsville Library show in November with Out of the Box. The theme is 1914 and my inspiration was the Women's Mock Parliament in Winnipeg in January 2014.(see previous posts). This interesting exhibition of fibre art will run throughout November at the Stittsville Public Library, Main Street, Stittsville, ON
That's all I have to share for now. My small hand embroidered landscapes were well received at the Etsy show and I have painted three more backgrounds for mini embroideries which I am just starting to stitch. I'll post them when I have more stitching completed. These new ones are all inspired by photos taken in Cape Breton last month.
Here are a couple more CB sights. And no, we didn't take the lift up! I love it, love it, love it there!!
