What a blast!
The Etsy Made in Canada show was on the 24th all across Canada. Here in the6 (Toronto) I was amongst the 140 exhibitors at the MaRS Discovery District. A big thank you to all the organizers volunteers and last but certainly not least, all the people who came out to support handmade and vintage.
This is the East Atrium but the show extended into the Central and West Atrium as well with lots of beautiful light as you can see. This picture doesn't really show how dense the traffic became, only because I could only take a picture when it wasn't busy. But the location in the centre of town with all the other activities going on that day, made for a very well attended show.

Also, I will have the very popular Cottage Tea Towels there. These towels were a great hit in Haliburton where they sold out! So make sure you drop by to get yours as cottage season isn't over yet.
See you at

|Sparrow Avenue: de-constructing the Pencil Pouch|
There is a production line that happens whenever large numbers of items are being made. Each panel is individually cut including the muslin linings. It is all assembled in such a way that each part can easily be accessed and sewn together. This past summer I set up my work station outside. It is pretty special to be able to take my work outside.
