So it is now August where did the time go!
I would like to first talk about our upcoming events. Starting with the CreativFestival.
Once again we are very excited and humbled to be the charity partner for this show.
This show is taking place from October 25-27 at The Metro Toronto Convention Centre South Building. This year at the show so many exciting things are happening in support of CFC.
Let's start with with the exciting support from the Crochet Crowd. This year they have designed a Crochet-Arium (so awesome). In this awesome display Michael along with members from the Crochet Crowd are hoping to create 1000 sea creatures that will be for sale. All of these magnificent underwater creations will be on sale at there booth with full proceeds benefitting CFC. Please check out the Crochet Crowd so you can get involved. Or go visit there booth and purchase a critter in support of CFC!
So what's happening in our booth?
On Friday we are calling all highschool students to partake in our art challenge "what inspires me". By participating in the art challenge the student receives free admission along with special gift from Crafting For a Cure. The top 10 winners will receive prizes valued at over $250, and have their art place on cards that will be used by CFC. The winning students class will also receive art supplies valued at over $2500. Please email us directly if your class is interested in participating for full details on this awesome event.
On Sunday we are having our Craft-a-thon! This promises to be a ton of fun for all who participate.
I am so excited about this event that it merits its own page on our website. Learn great crafts for participants, recieve gifts, bring smiles to kids in hospital, admission to the creativfestival is waived for participating.
Details on our page along with registration form.
Don't forget that in our booth as always we will be selling exciting products that were donated for us to raise money. Not to mention our daily raffles.
As always we will be crafting and creating - this years craft from Michaels is creating Guitars with Duck Tape.
We also have special guests coming through our booth partaking in card making for kids! See you at the Creativfestival!
Ok so you appreciate the crafts but would rather buy the finished product then the Made By Hand show should be your event.
This is the event you need to attend to buy that unique gift for that special someone for the holidays!
Now we are giving you two opportunities to attend this show. After all in this show as the "Charity Of The Show" a percentage of the door sales are donated back to us.
At these shows we will be selling gift items too - some even made by kids! Dont forget to get your facepainted and balloon animals as Farco entertaiment is back and raising funds for CFC.
The first show is Saturday October 19 at the Toronto International Centre. The second show is in Hamilton on Saturday November 30 at the Hamilton Convention Centre. We will be crafting at both shows - creating cards for kids and making masks for Halloween and Ornaments for Christmas!
As always please check out our Facebook page as I am constantly updating it with photos, fun and interactive questions. That said we recently posted requests for preemie items and cards please keep them coming. You can check out our contact page for information on where to send the items.
Again a big shout out to Browns Interiors for accepting our US donations and then getting them to us! For this reason we have made them our sponsor of the month. Need furniture or decorating help they are the place to turn to!
Finally I want to thank all of you for your continuous support to Crafting For a Cure.
President, Crafting For a Cure
