November is upon us and with it comes our busiest month of the year.
We have been busy creating our wonderful up-cycled works of art and design all year round just for the many holiday events we have coming up very soon starting with our longest running event the Circle Craft Christmas Market now in our 12th consecutive year!
In Vancouver, the holidays begin with Circle Craft Christmas Market, a city tradition running for 45 years! Incredible!
There's a long history with this event.
The first Market took place in 1973 at The Cultch. The 2017 Circle Craft Christmas Market features artisans from coast to coast: BC craftspeople from communities such as Salt Spring Island, Mission, Vancouver, Kelowna, Shawnigan Lake, Tofino, Prince George, and Halfmoon Bay will showcase the very best of this province.
In addition, to round out the experience, visitors will find entertainment by local performers, craft technique demos, contests, and the "Budding Artists" open area where emerging artists will introduce exciting and innovative new work as well as a Fashion Show where you can check out fashion exhibitors like Adhesif Clothing on the catwalk!
From “The Cultch” in the 70s, to “under the sails” at the Convention Centre, to the new Convention Centre West, the Market has moved around Vancouver, but it’s always retained its unique character and mandate to showcase high quality craft via the artisans themselves. Parents who went as children now take their own kids and grandchildren. Circle Craft Christmas Market is truly a Vancouver tradition.
The 2017 Market will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West,
1055 Canada Place,
November 8-12, 2017.
Friday: 10 am – 9 pm; Saturday: 10 am – 7 pm; Sunday: 10 am – 5 pm
Tickets are available online at www.circlecraft.net.
This year you can catch Adhesif Clothing at corner booth #441 down the main center aisle
Right after Circle Craft we take off to Calgary to take part in the Art Market. This will be our big debut at this fabulous event and as such we had the pleasure of being apart of a video series featuring some of the new talent that will be showcasing our work.

Last but not least we finish off the year with a
Shiny Fuzzy Muddy formed in 2003 to collaborate in creating events that bring their art to the people. The driving force and vision behind the non-profit collective comes from the group’s four core members (L to R) – Janna Hurtzig, Arleigh Wood, Frances Dickinson and Kari Woo. Initially drawn to each other’s aesthetic sensibilities, they found great support and inspiration in their collaboration and so it has lived on ever since!
Every year they present the SHINYFUZZYMUDDY show, which takes place the second weekend in December at Heritage Hall. With an effort made to seek out new artists, up to thirty guests are invited to exhibit and sell their work at this historic Main St. location.
The common thread that ties the work together is the high quality of design, craftsmanship and material sensibility.
Patrons can be sure to find meaningful objects to enhance the quality of their lives and to meet the designer/makers directly.

If you have never checked out the Shiny Fuzzy Muddy show I highly reccommend it! It's very well curated and has a great relaxed vibe. Definitely one of the highlights of our holiday market season :)
This will be out last event of the season to catch Adhesif Clothing before we see you again in 2018.
We will have a special selection made up just for this event!
Hope to see you out there supporting our amazing scene of talented local makers this coming holiday season! Remember, sharing is caring :)
