You are invited ... Christmas Marketplace opens Thursday, November 5th

Dear reader
You are cordially invited to the opening of the Blackberry Artist's Society 19th Annual Christmas Marketplace on Thursday, November 5th starting at 6pm.
Kicking off a little earlier this year, our annual artisan market is the solution to all your gift buying puzzles, with fine arts, crafts and handmade goodness for your whole list.
Please join us as we showcase our members' work for your delight - there will be refreshments and a cash bar ... and don't forget to visit the Christmas Tree for handcrafted decorations and hostess gifts.
If you'd like to start things off a little earlier, the Arts Centre is hosting a party to celebrate art instructor Agata Teodorwicz's 20th anniversary - the fun starts at 5pm so drop by and wish Agata congratulations.

Slip Sliding Into Fall

The weather is changing, Fall is in the air. As bears start thinking of hibernation, we humans turn our
thoughts to warmth and comfort. Take time to curl up with a good book and a cuppa - beautiful cups make that tea tastes so much more special. Slip those cold feet into gorgeous handmade felted cozy booties! Wrap up with original hand woven scarfs and felted wraps!
And incredibly smooth to the touch - wooden comfort birds for that special gift or for yourself!

See all these and more at the Blackberry Gift Shop. We have just all the things you need to get into Fall!

Welcome new artist Zara Lau!

A long overdue welcome to new artist, Zara Lau.
Zara brings with her some fine artistic talent for jewelry making, and also experience working in a larger artist cooperative.
Her work is a beautiful mixture of Chinese knot work using silky cords in combination with delightful beads and findings. Her work varies according to its content and each piece is unique since the knots are formed by hand.
Zara's work makes great gifts for a loved one and also for yourself.
Please stop by the gift shop and see for yourself.
