Today we're heading back to the cabin, in time for the Bancroft Art and Craft Show and Sale, Saturday and Sunday. I think this will be my fourth year there. Once again I'll have lots of seconds for sale--imperfect pots, perfect for cottage living! And a good selection of my "firsts" too.
You can find me at Millenium Park on the main drag through town, Hwy. 62 north. Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-4. In addition to the 30+ artists/artisans, there is live music and an impressive quilt show in an adjacent building. If memory serves, they usually have a draw for some of the quilted items, including a bed quilt. I've been learning some new quilting techniques in the winter months and have a renewed appreciation for this art. The Bancroft quilters are truly a talented bunch!
Bancroft's Rockhound Gemboree is held the same week-end--apparently it's Canada's largest gem and mineral show. I believe they are set up in the town's community centre. I hear that tours are available to some of the local mine sites.
