Ooh! A coupon! I'm in.Grin


2  CANADA / Ontario / Let's get together for some Toronto crafty events this fall! on: August 13, 2018 05:17:13 PM
Onyxknox suggested getting together for The Toronto Bead Society show and the Old Book and Paper Show. I usually go to the Old Paper Show, but I haven't been to a Bead Show for years, so I think this is a great idea. What about the Creativ Festival? Maybe the Makeology Craft Market in Hamilton?

Anybody know of any other interesting-looking craft fairs or markets in the Greater Toronto Area this fall?

Wulf - I did not know you went to the TBS shows - I try to go too (if I feel my budget can take it), and sometimes take the workshops.  I will probably go to the Fall.  If you are interested, there is also a gem and mineral show at a community center in Scarborough in September too.  Also another old paper and books show in November at Wychwood Barns

I haven't been to a Bead Society show since that one visit in 2010. Maybe we should get together to go and encourage - I mean discourage - each other's bead-buying habits. Wink And we go to the Old Paper Shows every year - it's always fun.

And I love that button necklace too. I don't know why it's so darned appealing, but it is!

I wish I'd known you collect chopstick wrappers too, Susan - I would have sent you more! The letter is in Hungarian, by the way.

I've been working on-and-off all weekend on my patch for craftADDchick. I'm quite pleased with how it's working out, but there are still a few unknowns to get past.

Am I looking at SIX curios?

Oh no, that would be wrong, because the rules were strict about one item only. This is ONE curio cabinet in six parts. Wink Actually it was supposed to be seven, sized to fit perfectly across the space above the sliding doors in Jennie's dining room. But I just ran out of time and one had to be abandoned. So, I'm  sorry if you have to space them a little farther apart than they ought to be, Jennie. Embarrassed In case you're wondering, they don't have any correct order - whichever way they look best to you is right.

I'm relieved that there were so few losses in transit. I notice that the tiny red pump on the right-hand side of the fifth box has pulled loose, in case you missed it. A dab of glue will set it upright.  Quite a few of the other items that I knew would be likely to pull loose have a discreet brace behind them, but I missed that one.

Incidentally, the "best bead" that I first thought of including was the ceramic one with a dragonfly on it, on the right side of the second box. I bought it at a Toronto Bead Society show in 2010, that I went to with spicytaco, Granite_turtle and some other local Craftsters that I've since lost touch with. It's been sitting in a drawer for eight years, waiting for just the right project to come along.

What great stuff! I especially like the anchors. Are they stickers?

Wow! If I hadn't received two equally amazing packages, I'd be so envious! Cheesy

Wow, these are so amazing they make me want to try flow painting too now, and I'm afraid I'd dismissed it as just a summer camp activity. In the hands of the right artist (and that would so be you, Edel), the results are stunning.

And peeling up the overflow from the plastic sheeting is brilliant, too. I always love how  shiny it is.

Don't feel bad about not including anything handmade - I don't think I did either. Embarrassed
