April Giveaway Beads
We continue our 3rd Saturday Token Program in an artisan way! Make a purchase in any of our 3 stores and you’ll be given a token to one of the other stores. Make a purchase there that day and receive a free gift. We’ve given away hand stitched paper magnets, fused glass magnets and in April, our free gift is a beautiful handmade bead created by Lori Prince. She crafted the bead from polymer clay and embossed and embellished it beautifully. It has a large diameter hole, perfect for those popular bracelets – or slide it onto a cord or chain to wear as a necklace. Slip it onto a length of ribbon for the perfect bookmark.

Just this week I turned over a new leaf, by reader request, to post events 2 weeks in advance. Today, I turned that leaf back over – because I realized this 8-day show ends tomorrow! The Artful Holidays Facebook Page has great photos of what you’ll see there. It’s truly a well-curated show, filled with beautiful items. Mt Morris is about an hour’s drive from my house in Fairport – not bad at all. I hope you get a chance to go!

Brockport Arts Festival

2013 Poster

I don’t want to jinx anything – but the weather looks to be perfect for this weekend’s Brockport Arts Festival. Please note below that we have two award winners from last year’s Brockport Arts Festival. Rochester Artisans actually had two more winners, but I don’t know if they are participating again this year – sure would think so!

Here’s a sneak preview of what our Rochester Artisan members will have for you!

Crafts for a Cause – December 1

Today we have a guest post by Michelle Gottstein, from the Eastside Family YMCA:

This year, the Eastside YMCA in Penfield will put on their annual Crafts for a Cause show to benefit the Invest in Youth Campaign on Saturday December 1, 2012, 9:00-3:00. In its 3rd year, the show will feature 70+ craft vendors along with door prizes, a large bake sale and concession area, and even pictures with Santa for the kids!

The vendor fees from this event benefits the Y’s annual fundraising campaign which helps families in the community to 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.

The Crafts for a Cause event will highlight over 70 local vendors this year. Items will include photography, kids’ items, jewelry, floral, knit items, garden items, doll clothes, and much more! This event is open to the community! So spend a nice Saturday supporting the community and local artists at this exciting and unique event suitable for the whole family!

Artists are Crazy About Animals

Venus TaCo, 11 Years Old
(TaCo is what Steve and I use for our unofficial last names combo = Tadio Comstock.)

Many artisans I know have studio pets, our lovable critters that just like to keep us company while we toil away on our art. That’s Venus above, our first born. We also call her Squeaker because she squeaks more than meows. She acts all demure and skittish but we’ve caught her sashaying around the house, enticing the dogs to chase her, then pulls the innocent who-me? act. We now have 2 cats and 2 dogs and sometimes I wish they would all get the heck out of my studio and let me work! Oops, was that out loud? I kid! I kid because I love!

I’m guessing Lori Prince must feel that way once in a while too, because just the other day she was telling me, “One of these days I’m going to get a picture of my studio “helpers” if you are still adding to those pet ones on the Rochester Artisans website. There’s usually one wedged in behind me in the desk chair, one under the table and a cat either trying to walk on the laptop or lay on a work in progress. “kids”!”

We did have a slide show in the sidebar for a while, of various pets of Rochester Artisan members. Note to self – revive that!

All this, to tell you about a craft show application that Joann Chelini sent me yesterday – a fundraiser for Four-Legged Friends Animal Adoptions Arts & Crafts Sale.

The application and details are available here: 2012 Four-Legged Friends

I see a nice added bonus for this show is they will be awarding prizes, which can reap rewards at future shows, always a sweet perk.

Prizes: A Best in Show prize will be awarded at the end of the day to the vendor judged by an anonymous committee as having most successfully combined an attractive display with a hospitable demeanor. The Best in Show prize will be a free single booth for the Four-Legged Friends Arts & Crafts Show and Sale 2013.

A limited number of Honorable Mentions also will be awarded ensuring automatic acceptance into the 2013 show (no photo requirements, although all other requirements including price will apply).

Judges will anonymously visit vendors throughout the day.
