Away on Craft Business

I'm heading out to Corner Brook today for the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador's Annual General Meeting.  This blog used to have a lot more to do with craft than it has recently.  Going into the AGM, I'm the St. John's representative for the Craft Council.  Over the past couple of weeks, I've been asking craft producers in the St. John's area to send me their latest news and photos.

Marnie Parsons at Running the Goat has a new website that's full of suprises.  According to the website; Running the Goat Books & Broadsides is a micro press that specializes in books, chapbooks, broadsides and poemphlets by Newfoundlanders and Newfoundland-based writers. Most, but not all, of our publications are letterpress printed, using moveable lead type, and sewn by hand.

This one isn't really a St. John's update, but Elias Semigak also has a new website.  Elias creates some of the most sought after soapstone carvings in the Province.  You can get a taste of his work and his life on his site: Stone Artworks by Inuit Carver.
