CRAFT SHOW: Crafternoon Tea (November 29)

crafternoon tea (5th edition)
WHEN: Saturday November 29th (11am - 5pm)

WHERE: Queen Street East Presb. Church, 947 Queen St. East at Carlaw...just 2 short blocks West of Pape, near Nathalie-Roze & Co in spunky Leslieville.

WHAT: Crafternoon Tea is a crafty/fashion market, how-to hive & charity tea party all rolled into one that's been running about twice a year in the East-End since 2005.

This laidback event showcases 25+ local indie makers, plus a DIY demo zone and a yummy charity tea area (with a psychic!) & a fab raffle too.
Expect to find all kinds of crafty goodness - just in time for the holidaze!
Participating vendors offer up a medley of handcrafted goodies, including creatively recycled gifts, one-of-a-kind wearables and accessories, natural soaps & beauty products, unusual knits, greeting cards, soft toys, gourmet edibles, baby merch, funky holiday decorations and oodles of other treats.

Wallet-friendly bonus: most items are priced well under $50 - lots below $20.

Shopping at Crafternoon Tea is your way to support local talent, while buying unusual & eco-friendly gifts. Buy Handmade! Buy Local!!

DIY Delights: in the do-it-yourself zone, visitors can enjoy some free hands-on fun...make your own 1-inch button, learn how to create a pair of wire & bead earrings, a mini accordian notebook or a felted wool tree ornament.

Sweet Charity: Cash generated via raffle ticket sales and the English tea service will this year benefit two neighbourhood non-profit agencies: the Woodgreen Community Centre and the Red Door (women's) Shelter.

Admission is by donation of art supplies, toiletries or $1 (for the targeted charities)
