Fanciful birds take flight at CreativFestival

Here is my surface embellishing project for the CreativFestival.
This coming weekend, on Oct. 13, I will be demonstrating some surface embellishing techniques, including embroidery, adding sequins and beads at the CreativFestival in Toronto.
I have prepared several of these hoops and will be teaching at A Needle Pulling Thread Magazine`s booth at the festival. The idea is that people can put on a few sequins or beads, or a few embroidery stitches and then leave the hoop at the booth. I think I will be cool to see how the birds look at the end of the day.
The CreativFestival is a huge event for Canadian creative types. There are literally hundreds of demonstrations, make and take opportunities, classes in all kinds of creative pursuits from knitting to jewellery making. There are also many, many vendors at in the market area of the Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto.
I am looking forward to teaching others what I love to do.
Also, can I help it if I do some shopping along the way? No, of course not!
I will post some photos after the event, provided I get some good ones.
Have a lovely week, everyone!
