Where: Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens
When: May 21 to 23
This event was once again held at the lovely spacious Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens where, among many other marvelous artisans, our Glacier Grannies had a very successful sale of our beautiful crafts. Despite the weather being dreadful for most of May, the sun blessed us with its warm rays all weekend, which brought out so many people to enjoy the surroundings and be inspired to purchase our crafts. We had many new crafts to offer including denim aprons for both adults and tweens, little cloth bins, teething rings with crinkle bunny ears, and amazing hand done wood burned tools, each unique in design. We also had adorable felted creatures and many other handmade or sewn articles.
Our constants were also available like the AIDS angels, a few of which are made to include a little babe or child, our ever popular smocked dresses, the wonderful wax Eco Wraps and the microwave cosies, which sold out.
A big thank you to the many volunteers who created our crafts, and those who helped with selling, as well as with the inevitable setup and takedown. We also appreciate the support from the public: we raised $3,367.20 at this event..
The Grannies are very grateful to Dianne W. who has been Craft Coordinator for many years. This was her last sale, and we are so pleased (but not surprised) that it was such a success. It was a fitting tribute to her that this is the largest amount we have ever made at Arts and Bloom.
Where: Barb and James T.'s beautiful back yard
When: Thursday, June 30th
Many Grannies met together for an afternoon garden party in a beautiful back yard. It was so good to meet and chat again after so long, and to enjoy delicious food.
Thank you Barb and James for your hospitality, Barb and Sandy for creating a fun getting-to-know you game, and all the Grannies who brought goodies to share.
Help relieve the suffering from HIV/AIDS today and donate to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
Individually hand-crafted by a group of Glacier Grannies, these beautiful Angels are a wonderful keepsake or gift.
Each Angel comes with a personalized name card which explains the work of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign.
