Do you ever wish for a return to a simpler time for the holidays? One where people exchanged home-made, hand-made gifts, carefully crafted with love, for the people in their lives.  Here comes An Iconocraft Christmas to your rescue.  If your budget is low but you still want to provide presents for family, friends and work mates, this is the event to attend.

Following on the major success of the 2nd Iconocraft in June of this year, the organizers -Amanda Farrell-Low, Missie Peters, Tally Heinke and Sammie Gough – decided that several hundred attendees could not be wrong;  they had a winning formula.

“The energy at the June show was amazing, and people kept saying, ‘You should do this again
around Christmas,’” says  Farrell-Low. “So we decided to take a crack at it and hold an event that gives folks enough lead time to craft gifts before the holidays.”

For the price of admission ($10) you receive tokens to cover the cost of a few activities. You may purchase additional tokens ($1-$5) if you wish.  Crafts are taught in 15 minute sessions and you’ll leave with gifts you made yourself to take home.

The lead crafters will also have their own crafts and crafting kits for sale. There will be a kids crafting table, carolling and a cash bar with holiday cocktails too.

I have fond memories of production-line-like assembly of Christmas tree ornaments, and some of my favourite presents are the knitted scarves I’ve received from my daughter-in-law and son.  Iconocraft is on my calendar – hope to see you there!

5pm-11pm Thursday, November 10
