    CITY OF CRAFT:celebrating all things crafty in T.O. (Dec. 1)



    In brief:

    WHAT: City of Craft

    WHEN: Saturday December 1, 2007, 11am-8pm
    WHERE: Theatre Centre, located at 1087 Queen Street West at Dovercourt.
    WEB: http://cityofcraft.com

    In not-so-brief:

    Come dive into Toronto's crafty cultural landscape at City of Craft, a day long opportunity to buy, observe, experience, chat about, share and reimagine all things handmade. Not your run-of-the mill craft show, this dynamic happening will feature craft-based installations, demos, and free workshops, alongside a curated craft fair filled with contemporary, stylish, and offbeat handmade goodies.

    You'll also have the chance to learn about great local classes, studios, resources, and craft based projects, getting you in the mood to make stuff and make stuff happen. Eager beavers will be rewarded with swag bags designed and screenprinted for City of Craft by local label Schoolyard (Katie Chan and Hilary Dennis ) & chockful of indie craft goodness from multiple vendors and sponsors.

    Event highlights include:

    * 60+ craft vendors and exhibitors from Toronto and Montreal selling awesome handmade art, craft & fashion and promoting their craft-based initiatives
    * Soft City, a plush cityscape that invites Torontonians to reconsider their relationship to the place they live
    * StreetKnit's hand-knit house, an inventive endeavor to bring awareness to issues of homelessness in the city (Donations of hand knit garments will be accepted at the event).
    * Perusal of Toronto Zine Library's entire collection of zines in the cozy reading lounge.
    * Ample opportunities to make stuff:
    -a crochet workshop taught by Shannon Gerrard (let's just say it's connected to her latest project) 1-2pm
    -a craft materials swap run by the workroom & Sew Be It Studio - 2:30-4pm***
    -a make-you-own gift wrap session hosted by Toronto Church of Craft 4:30-7pm

    *** To participate in the swap bring fabric or yarn to swap and canned goods to donate the Daily Food Bank. Leftover materials will be donated to charity.

    Please share this invite with craft-inclined friends & family, or anyone you know who might enjoy finding unique handmade gifts in a decidedly un-mall-like atmosphere.
