Got Craft?

got-craft-2013We’re super-excited to be guest-hosting a couple of workshops at Got Craft? this year! The carefully curated show is one of our favourite holiday markets, and an invaluable source of handmade goodies for those of you looking for ethical and local gifts this season. This year’s show takes place December 14th and 15th at the Maritime Labour Centre (1880 Triumph Street), and we’ll be there from 12:30 to 2:30 each day with some hands-on DIY goodness. Drop by the DIY Workshop area on Saturday to try your hand at making a needle-felted ornament with our felting instructor (Barbara of Blushing Lotus Designs), or pop in on Sunday to make a beaded bracelet with our jewelry instructor (Kayla from Bead Freaks). Make sure you stick around the rest of the day for workshops from Spool of Thread, District Dogs Designs, and Big Top Sign Arts.

Got-Craft-2013-lookbookGot Craft? has been showcasing local handmade treasures since 2007, when the first Got Craft? was held with just 20 vendors -and still drew a crowd of more than 500 attendees! Their rigorous jurying process results in a collection of vendors that are the creme-de-la-creme of the local indie craft scene, and their swag bags (free to the first 50 attendees) are the stuff of legend. There’s no better spot to get your holiday shopping done!
