Supporting the Craft Social

It’s time for a Good Ol’ Manitoba Social – a Good Ol’ Manitoba Craft Social that is! The Manitoba Craft Council and the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library are thrilled to be announcing their partnership on developing a new hub for Craft in Manitoba. Doesn’t every “marriage” need a “wedding social”? And so, the Craft Social is born.
We need your help to pull it off!

Invite your friends and family so we can all celebrate Craft together! Tickets available here.
Volunteer to help out with various tasks before and during the event. Please click here to sign up for tasks you can help out with!
Donate a pie or cake to our Cake vs. Pie booth where social goers can buy a piece of cake or pie and weigh in on the heated debate of what is better, cake or pie.
Contribute to the mystery bag booth. We are looking for small items of about $10. They can be small hand made items, craft books, or craft supplies/tools.

Email jennifersmith062@gmail.com about mystery bag, cake and pie donations, and if you would like to volunteer.

Show your support for the new Craft hub

The Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library has applied for a City of Winnipeg Community Incentives grant to support the renovations required for our new joint Craft facility. The application will be read by all city councillors and each of them will have a vote on whether the project is funded or not. We were advised to have our members send letters of support to your city councillors requesting that they support the project.

We have drafted a letter that we’d encourage you to fill in and sign asking for support from councillors for this Community Incentives Grant application.  The sample letter is here. Feel free to make any changes you see fit before sending it on. We wanted to make it easy and quick for you to do, hence the sample letter.

Councillor email addresses are here.

The address is the same for all councillors if you choose to mail a hard copy letter:
Councillor’s name
