I'll be back in Victoria this year to do the Out of Hand Artisan Fair again. It was such a positive experience last year, I'm looking forward to doing it again. They have a really good mix of exhibitors, many of whom are exclusive to Vancouver Island.

Looking forward to being at the Wearable Art Show in Oakville. The show will feature 35 Canadian designers showcasing their latest work in an intimate setting, as well as daily fashion shows.

Here I am on a recent trip to New York at Tender Buttons on East 62nd Street - pursuing the eternal quest for great vintage buttons.
September 8 - 10, 2017
I will be at the Cabbagetown Art and Crafts Fair in Toronto - a great outdoor show in one of Toronto's oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods. It runs in conjunction with the Cabbagetown Festival, a weekend-long festival of food, entertainment, historic walking tours, and lots more.

One of my Canister Purses was in attendance at the opening reception of an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in Vienna on the rise of that city's department stores in the nineteenth century. Pictured here is the owner of the purse, Roz McNulty, with her friend Lynn Katey, both from Vancouver. Roz is the Vice-President of the Society for the Museum of Original Costume and is looking very elegant in a lovely vintage gown. Both the President and Vice-President of Austria were at the opening reception as well. I'm sure they saw my purse - and must have admired it quietly to themselves.

I will be at Hycroft on Sunday March 19 to participate in the Society for the Museum of Original Costume's Bizarre Bazaar, a sale of new and vintage fashion. The event will include a sale of the Society's collectables, as well as an opportunity to have the inimitable Ivan Sayers identify and date any family treasures that you may own or date family photos based on dress. The Bazaar is a fundraiser for SMOC in aid of their quest for a permanent home for their vast collection of vintage fashion.

I will be opening my home studio for this year's North Shore Art Crawl, along with 280 other artists working in a vast range of styles and media.
I will be at Victoria's Out of Hand Artisan Fair with my line of paper goods. The show will be held downtown in the historic Crystal Garden.
