Beaconsfield Artisans’ Fair
Saturday, September 23, 2023
For the second year in a row, our guild participated in the popular Beaconsfield Artisans’ Fair. We had 2 booths – one provided by the City to promote our craft, and another provided by our guild to sell our members’ crafts to the public. Our booths were ideally located alongside our Centennial Park Poster Rug Exhibit, giving us the opportunity to encourage visitors to further tour our talented artists’ work.
Many thanks to Isabelle, Jacques, Claire, Chris, Leslie, Karen, and Harold for setting up, taking on the big task of vendor, for welcoming and providing information to the public, and for finally disassembling everything at the end of the day. Thank you also to our members and friends who contributed their beautiful crafts to fill the sales tables, and to those who dropped by to visit.
