Calling All Crafters!

The Stratford Public Library is holding a craft show on Saturday October 1 and we are looking for vendors to participate! 

Handmade Culture
A Show and Sale of Stratford’s Craft, Culture & Creativity
Saturday October 1, 2011  10am - 3pm
Stratford Public Library Auditorium
19 St. Andrew Street, Stratford

The aim of this event is to showcase the talent of local artists and crafters.  We hope to create a fantastic opportunity for you to display your talent within your own town in a friendly, community setting while supporting your library. 

The show and sale will be held in the Library Auditorium.  The auditorium is a large, bright space ideal for displays.   

Your fee will support  the  Friends of the Stratford Public Library. Vendors will receive a tax receipt from the Friends for the table fee (minus $5 which will be used for advertising). We will be actively promoting this event: online (library website, kijiji, Facebook, twitter), in local newspapers, in the library itself and around town.  

Please take a look at the attached Artists Registration and Agreement and consider joining us.  We would love for you to take part and show Stratford your “handmade” talent.  If you have any questions, please contact Krista Robinson at 519-271-0220 ext. 31 or
