We recently hosted a Info/Craft Night about the upcoming Etsy Calgary: Made In Canada event. The evening was filled with discussion about the upcoming market, food and crafting!
The event was held at the beautiful Symons Valley Ranch Farmers Market. The food was provided by some of the markets vendors – Sabores Mexican Restaurant and Organics, Blue Door Olive Oil and Rustic Sourdough.
A feature table was set up showcasing vendors from last years Made In Canada market. Vendors: Tribe + Society, Jen Gregoire Photography, Bubblegum Sass, Harmony Grace Designs, Salt Water Tea, Medicine River Soap Co. and Maple and Oak Designs.
After a short presentation highlighting details about this years market the attendees assembled Greeting Cards for Seniors Secret Service. SSS is an organization that provides Christmas and Birthday gifts to isolated seniors in Calgary and the surrounding area. Each month SSS gives out roughy 200 Birthday gifts. Included with each gift is a handmade greeting card personalized towards each individual senior. Lindy made up two card templates ahead of time and everyone set to work putting together the cards. In total 150 cards were made in just under an hour and a half!
Swag Bags were given out at the end of the evening. The bags include lots of Etsy goodies as well as some swag from us! Magnets from Jillian Logee Photography, Lip Balm from Handmade Therapy and Greeting Cards from Crafted by Lindy.
