First up is our amazing venue - The Theatre Centre - a nationally-recognized arts incubator, which serves as a research and development hub for the cultural sector. The Theatre Centre's new space is a gem and we love being able to use it.

Coriander Girl is pretty much the perfect floral sponsor for a spring show. Their Parkdale shop has beautiful flowers, perfect plants and sweet gifts.
Each City of Craft show has its own poster, expertly silk screened by the talents at Kid Icarus - the wonderful print and gift shop, located both in Kensington and Parkdale.

A long-time sponsor and friend of City of Craft, the workroom is Toronto's go-to place for fun sewing lessons, gorgeous fabric and friendly advice.
Paul Dotey is our designer for this show and we love, love, love his minimalist forsythia! Look out for him at the show along with some amazing new printed textiles he's designed.

Last by not least, you might not recognize the name Old Weston, but you definitely know GhostfaceKnitta (aka Kalpna), expert crafter, window designer/decorator and jewellery maker. Her sponsorship for this show includes basically organizing the whole thing. Thanks Kalpna, very nice of you!
You can come meet many of our sponsors at City of Craft Spring on April 18. Plus about two dozen vendors of handmade and vintage goodies. Yay!
Thanks again to our amazing sponsers...we love you so much!!
