These little beauties have become quite a popular item. Mike created a series this spring for National Seal Product Day on Parliment Hill. You might get lucky and snag one at our summer sales venues or you can place an order and be sure to get the style with detailing you want. Sealskin and labradorite optional; prices range between $200 – $275 depending on details.

With the last orders delivered and the craft fair season at a close, we would like to thank everyone for their support throughout 2017. It was so nice to see everyone out shopping at the Craft Fair and Tea and Sale supporting our Newfoundland and Labrador’s craftspeople. A special thank you to the staff and volunteers of the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador and the The Anna Templeton Centre for Craft Art and Design for their dedication to the advancement of our provincial craft sector.
Have a relaxing holiday filled with twinkling lights, yummy treats, and memory making. Wishing you and yours all the best New Year.
Susan and Mike
It’s that time of year again! The ATC’s Chritmas Tea and Sale is always a favourite for craftspeople and shoppers alike. It is the last big fine craft event before the winter break. The craft and art classrooms are transformed into a magical holiday marketplace. You are sure to find something for everyone on your list. The venue is beautiful, the food is awesome and the building is full to the brim with exquisite handmade finery.
A casual relaxed affair, the Tea and Sale provides us opportunity to chat with both customers and fellow makers. A nice change from the hustle and bustle of the trade show type fairs. Not to mention all the glorious food!
If you are out and about in St. John’s on the weekend drop by for a visit. There is lots of parking in the Duckworth Street garage. The short walk will be well worth the wonders found in the historic building.
We are on the 3rd floor. Drop by and say hi.
The Anna Templeton Centre is at 278 Duckworth Street. Tea and Sale hours are: Friday, Noon to 7 pm, Saturday, 9:30 am – 4:30pm, Sunday, Noon to 4:30 pm. www.annatempletoncentre.com
Taking advantage of the mauzy weather to mount some embroideries for a Prayer Flag exhibition at the Craft Council Gallery. This series of work is about astronomical events that shape our seasons. As as it was for my ancestors, every aspect of my life is seasonal and comes with different tasks and mindsets; finding comfort in those patterns . While I embrace every season, I do miss the light in winter. The summer solstice is bittersweet; the height of growth in all things with the sun waning with shorter days. My favourite is the winter solstice. Dark, cozy and with a hint of sparkle, it is the beginning of the steady climb to light and warmth. The winter solstice is all about hope and the promise of a better year ahead.
This piece was created to honour May Day, the cross-quarter day that falls between the vernal equinox and the summer solstice. May Day is also referred to as the Feast of St. Joseph (Catholic), Beltane (Ireland), Calendimaggio (Italy) and Vappu (Finland) to name just a few.
May Day is created with naturally dyed silk , vintage lace, metal threads, rooster skull and feathers.
With silk thread and metal threads on dupioni silk ground fabric, we will stitch up a sprig of Forget-Me-Nots suitable for framing. Finished size: 5″ x 7″. We will cover basic stitches, beading, working with metal and how to mount your finished embroidery. Cost of workshop is $50 which includes all materials.
