The 'ethically produced trend' in Canada and abroad
Stores that sell handmade craft

Individual Canadian artists

And any topics you feel are relevant to the Canadian Craft industry.

Creating some earrings based on this beautiful tree. 'The Arbutus is the only broadleaved evergreen tree native to Canada and it occurs in three red listed (endangered) plant communities in BC.'

Check out for galleries, stores, shows and more!

Thanks Gera. So you focus more on specialty high end pieces? I find I need designs that are low cost and low labour for shows. The high end pieces I save for galleries, and my personal collection. :)

Circle Craft, cool. I'd love to know what it's like, maybe some people who have exhibited there can post here. :)

Hi Gera,

What are the shows like in Vancouver?
Have you done the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, and/or Vancouver? I know Granville Island is a haven for the arts.

I'd love to have a discussion on shows in places other than Toronto if anyone would like to post one. :)

Thanks Sara. I would love to post some info about MAG, so I will promote you! I can't think of anything specifically, but I will keep it in mind. Thanks!

Great! You should join if you haven't already. You can let us know what it's like! Feel free to post here, or you can write me a paragraph to start in a new blog, or I could start a discussion on what it feels like to be a Canadian crafting around the world! :)
