So, I went to the Creativ Festival in Mississauga on the weekend. There were a decent number of booths with a variety of focuses - knitting, crocheting, stamping/cardmaking/scrapbooking, seweing maching embroidery and more. The free classes weren't as good as I'd hoped, but I did have fun at the one make 'n take class I went to (where I made the 'laugh' card in the 'things I bought' photo).
One of the coolest things there was a booth demonstrating the Turkish art of Ebru. For $7 you could try it and take your piece home. Here's the one I did:
Ultimately I had a good two days, and came away with some new techniques.
