Crafts for a Youthful Cause – Dec 7, Penfield, NY

12-07-13 RA Mosaic

This December, the Eastside YMCA in Penfield will hold their 4th annual Crafts for a Cause holiday show to benefit the Y’s Invest in Youth Campaign. The craft fair will feature 70+ vendors, door prizes, raffles, a large bake sale, and a cafe area. The show will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 9:00am-3:00pm.

The vendor fees from this event benefit the Y’s annual fundraising campaign which helps families afford programming such as camp, preschool, and swim lessons. The funds raised are donated directly back to families in the Penfield community who need it most!

Enjoy your Saturday shopping while supporting your neighbors and local artists at the Eastside YMCA’s Crafts for a Cause Holiday Craft Fair. This event is free and open to the community!

Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!

4th Annual Fall Craft Sale – Oct 26 in Fairport

Flax Seed

You wanna know about flax seed? I can tell you all about flax seed! I worked with Fran Lindgren on her website, Flax Seed Pillows by Fran earlier this year.

I learned that flax seeds are 40% oil so they hold the heat or cold longer than water based seeds (like rice). How much longer? Five times, thank you very much. And they conform to your body better, because of their oblong shape and smooth surface. Take that. I know my stuff.

And I have personal experience too! I keep mine in the freezer and have been known to put it on the back of my neck to cool down on a hot day. I’ve also used it hot when my knee went out of whack briefly.
