Stoney Creek residents asked to support local craftspeople

July 29, 2016 by  

Residents of Stoney Creek and the rest of Hamilton as well, are invited to come to a celebration of handmade items from the local region and all across the country.

Etsy will be hosting its Makelogy: Made in Canada Fair. Members of the public will be able to browse through a selection of items that have been carefully chosen for their unique flair, and will be able to find treasures that are not available at stores selling mass–produced or fast fashion goods. There will be handmade clothing, jewelry, soaps, toys, textiles, bags and home decor.

The event has been planned so that people can add to their own personal collection or get a jumpstart on their shopping for the upcoming holiday season, all while supporting local artisans and small business people. A printer can prepare digital business cards for those who sell their handcrafted item at events such as this so that customers will be able to contact them in the future

The event will take place on September 24 at the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology. It will be spread throughout three historic buildings, and admission for the day has been set at $5 each. For those who wish to park onsite, it will cost $3, while a shuttle service will be provided from the free parking area.

Further details are available on the Makeology website.

July 27, 2016 by  

Young people in Sherwood Park who are considering offering their services as a babysitter are invited to take part in a course designed to give them the skills and confidence they need to be effective in the role.

The Red Cross will be offering its Babysitter Safety Course, which will cover a variety of topics that sitters can put to good use. They will learn about their responsibilities and rights, how to look for jobs and how to conduct themselves during an interview, care techniques for babies and toddlers, and accident prevention. In addition to these topics, they will also be taught first aid, how to prevent fires and poisonings, and also how to address discipline problems should they arise.

The one-day workshop is presented in a hands-on and fun learning format. Those who successfully complete the coursework will be given a Red Cross Babysitting Certificate. Comb binding can be used to create booklets and other educational materials for training sessions such as this.

The course is open to those from ages 11 to 16, and will run from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm on August 17 at the Sherwood Park United Church at 20 Fir Street. They are asked to bring along a water bottle, indoor shoes, and a floppy doll or stuffed animal that lays flat.
