ladyfest t.o. craft sale

call for crafters ladyfest t.o.

This sounds great. Apply apply! (or attend! attend!)

Hello lovely crafters, zinesters and artists!

The heat is on! It's on the street! Ladyfest Toronto and Kapisanan Philippine Centre are joining forces to bring the first of two summer craft fair extravaganzas in Kensignton Market during Pedestrian Sundays!

Our first craft sale is scheduled for SUNDAY, JUNE 24th from 1 pm to 6 pm with vendors setting up at 12 and tearing down from 6 - 7 pm. It's at the Kapisanan Philippine Centre, 167 Augusta Ave (Corner of Dundas).

We have a limited number of tables available with approximate dimensions of 3' X 30". Vendors will be permitted to display items on the wall behind their table space. Please let us know in advance if you are bringing any additional displays/racks. We will try to accommodate this within reason. The table and vending fee is 20$.

If you provide your own table, the fee is reduced to $15. Please send table dimensions in advance. Chairs are provided for all.

The fee is to be paid at 12:00 PM on Sunday. Vendors are also asked to donate an item from their table for our raffle. This is a great way to promote your craft as raffle items will be displayed in the window.

The primary focus of this sale is promoting the crafty and artistic talents of women (men are welcome too of course). We are particularly interested in showing work that is DIY and at an accessible price

Here's what we need from you to consider your application:

- Your name and contact information
- A brief description of yourself and your crafts
- Approx. price-point of your crafts
- photos of your work.
- display info if applicable
- let us know if you require a table or are bringing your own

As well, let us know if you would be willing to be contacted by the media or have pictures of your crafts included in any press about the craftsale.

PLEASE NOTE: You must receive a confirmation e-mail from us to confirm that you will be participating in the craft sale.

There will be musical performances at the event. The list of performers will be confirmed shortly.

Entrance to the craft sale is open to the public and will be pay-what-you-can. Those who make a donation will receive a complimentary raffle ticket.

Please don't hesitate to write us with any questions or concerns you might have about the craft sale. You can reach us at ladyfesttoronto[AT]

And of course apply quickly! Spaces are limited!
