It's that time of year again, all your friendly neighbourhood crafters are working their fingers to the bone,eating crappy meals and forgoing sleep in order to whip up fabulous Christmas presents for the rest of the world to snap up at the various craft/artisan sales going on around the city. Tyson and I are knee deep in craft sales this year, as well as keeping up with HQ, which is kind of a year round craft sale really.
We've plowed through Ladyfest, PucesPOP, and Expozine (sadly missed the newest show A Flea Affair) and this weekend we are showing at the fabulous fifth edition of the Souk@SAT. I've been sewing my fingers off, and am happy to say that I've got a whole cabins worth of logs made, as well as the little stump pincushions, a new pincushion design using vintage embroidered ribbons, a small flock of owls, my vintage fabric bracelet purses from last year, as well as a slew of handmade necklaces using vintage bits and slices of branches from good old Manitoba.
Tyson has been painting like a madman as well, pumping out, well pumps. Handpainted vintage pumps that is (shoes people, shoes) as well as some handpainted vintage purses and his classic mini watercolour paintings.
The Souk@SAT is a one of the major shows of the season (only being surpassed by the Salon des Métiers D'Arts), lasting 3 full, gloriously tiring days. All kidding aside though, this is one of our favorite shows, in a seriously stylish venue organized by a seriously stylish lady, who also happens to work as a stylist proper (Azamit, we love you!)
