SOFAAR’s annual Show & Tell is back for 2018 – with changes to make it more fun for participating members.
SOFAAR was officially launched in June, 2016 with a Show & Tell to coincide with Annapolis Royal’s First Friday celebration. The event was designed to give the public a glimpse of the amazing variety of fibre work created in our area. We asked members to bring finished work to show, to set up tables and displays of finished work, and to be on hand both days to talk about their work. We repeated the event with the same format in 2017.
We’re going to present Show & Tell again this year, but we’ve made some changes to the location and format. We hope you will participate.
Here’s the scoop for SOFAAR’s 2018 Show & Tell:
Time: Friday, June 1, 6 to 8 p.m. and
Saturday, June 2, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Venue: Mrs. Nicholson Home, 212 St. George Street in Annapolis Royal
We’ll be inside but if weather permits, some of us can also stitch in the courtyard.
Format: Our 2018 focus will be on Work in Progress. So instead of just displaying finished work, we’re asking you to bring a current project and actually work on it during the event. This will give visitors a chance to see what you’re doing and ask questions. And because of the new format, we are no longer asking you to set up displays and attend for both days. So you can come at your convenience – we suggest a 2-hour minimum stint, but you can stay as long as you like. You can come Friday night or on Saturday or, if you can, both. We do want to have members there working all the hours that we’re open. We will have room to display some finished work, so if you have a piece you’d like to show, let us know so we can allocate the display space. Finished work for display should be left at the venue for the full length of the event.
Think of the 2018 Show & Tell as an extended “fun fibre day” or a long stitch-in. Bring your work, chat
with old fibre friends and make new ones, and see what your fellow members are doing.
For those participating in East Meets West, this is a perfect time for us to work on our pieces and let our fellow
members see what we’ll be sending to British Columbia for the exhibition.
We do hope you’ll join us for Show & Tell and help make the event a success.
