The Manitoba Craft Council and Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library extend a
HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the Paperversary such a great success!
The Paperversary was held this past Thursday, April 6th, at the Good Will Social Club and was it ever a good time! Kelly Ruth had everyone decked out in paper themed attire, and our activity booth leaders Sean McLachlan of Little Printing Press, Ann Stinner, and Patricia Gervai had everyone getting crafty. Young artists Dash and Lucie stole the show early in the evening with their portrait drawing and DJ Ashley Au kept everyone’s toes tapping late into the evening with her lively music.
The Craft Auction was a big hit, with over 40 pieces donated by local craft artists. Heartfelt thanks to all of the artists who donated their beautiful work to this auction. We look forward to announcing the final total this brought in for C2 Centre for Craft.
And the moment you have all been waiting for:
