Important information about a not-to-be missed Haliburton County event Exhibit that begins May 9 and runs through May 24.
The “Cash Cups” exhibit is an extension of a project from the Crafty Girls group, who meet monthly to experiment with different crafts in an informal setting.
April’s craft night features “Boob Bags”, converting old bras into purses.
The “New Business of the Year” Maple Lake Artisans Collective will be making purses from bras and embellishing them with material, paint, beads, thread and mystery objects.
You don’t need to attend Crafty Girls to submit an entry for the exhibit, contact The Art Hive for information: call 705-754-0021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to visit the exhibit during May 9-24 and make a bid on a unique art piece.
The intent of the exhibit is to raise awareness for breast cancer.
THINGS TO KNOW:
A silent auction of donated artworks will be held during the run of the exhibit, with final bids during the closing celebrations Saturday May 24. That evening will also feature a live auction of selected pieces. Proceeds from both auctions will go to Cottage Dreams.

Oh, it ends on the 24 th of May. Gosh, I’d love to go.–that’s Canada’s weekend akin to the 31st of May–Memorial Day in the USA. A week earlier means a week colder and buggier, though.
I hear from my aunt via my dad, that there is still “two feet” of snow on the ground but given that we are not even half-way through April–I hope it melts soon and stays that way. The one forecast I have implies otherwise, I’m not that glad to report. :/
