July - All Fun & Games!

Happy Canada Day everyone!  I hope it was a good one.  Our hearts goes out to all the communities that could not celebrate due to massive flooding.  Many provinces have been affected.  Enough water already!  :(  Donations can be made through the Red Cross.

Handmade House
My art remains there until July 26.  I've been very good at keeping it stocked at all times.  You can check it out anytime and find lots of art. ranging from $40 to $475.

New: Handmade House Showcase Artist Meet & Greet
Thursday, July 17th from 1 to 3pm
The intention with this afternoon is for interested corporate buyers to stop by.  Handmade House is doing the invites, but please feel free to come by if you are interested.  If it's not raining, we'll set up a table outside.



Stitching in Public Demos - I have a few lined up:

Saskatchewan Handcraft Festival
July 18 & 19 (Fri & Sat) Afternoon
Alex Dillabough Centre, Battleford
* I won't have a sale booth at this event but can have art available for viewing by appointment outside of these festival demonstrations.  Just email me before then.


Saskatchewan Art Showcase
August 8 (Fri)
7pm to 10 pm at Prairieland Park / Saskatoon Ex
 * My son will be doing a demo with this Leathercraft at the same time.  He got a call one night from the organizing committee.  I'm so excited for him!  Please say hi if you are out that night.  Usually it is very quiet during evening demos.  We'll be in the hall with all the art.


Here's the latest announcement:

Dog River Days
July 25, 26, 27
Rouleau, Saskatchewan
***The Farmers' Market I will be part of is on Saturday July 26th from 11 to 4.
This is a three day event on the last weekend of July to celebrate Corner Gas: The Movie.  The wee town of Rouleau has been once again transformed into Dog River as the set of a long running Canadian TV hit comedy called 'Corner Gas'.  All vendors will be hardcore prairie-loving marketers.  I was tickled to get invited to this one!  I'll have a booth selling my wares during the Saturday Farmers' Market fyi.  Find out more about this one time only event HERE.  What a blast!

Above:  The cast of Corner Gas, Tara Spencer-Nairn, Lorne Cardinal, Eric Peterson, Nancy Robertson, Janet Wright, Brent Butt, Gabrielle Miller, and Fred Ewanuick.  (Photo not mine. I found it floating around nameless on the internet.)

* * * To help pay my way, I am interested in running a little workshop in Regina on Friday July 25th.  If you have space and a group of interested friends, email me at Monika@MySweetPrairie.ca to inquire.

AND...
Thanks for bearing with me as I create a mail list.  Canada passed and Anti-Spam legislation so I thought it was time to finally create a mailing list.  The rule is that you have to opt in to receive mass emails.  I'm not sure what else it all entails, but I'm glad I'm getting it done.  I've never kept a mail list.  If you were not 'spammed' by me over the weekend and would like to be included to receive occasional emails, write to me at Monika @ My Sweet Prairie .ca (no spaces).  It won't change your blogger email status.

Never a dull moment,

talk soon!  HAPPY SUMMER!!
