NQ to West Coast

First, apologies for a slightly static blog. Ran into some trouble getting at the posts - but I hope this is working, because we're gearing up for the West Coast Craft Fair, and you can find us in the city's new art space this Friday-Sunday, and, yes, we have our gorgeous subscription prize, Jean Claude Roy's Winterton
, on display. (Image: artbeads.com.)

And now we prep for the Fair ...

... curated and organized by the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador, five days at the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre, starting Wednesday, maybe we'll see you there?

30 Hours @ Ottawa

We pretty much went from the airport to the set-up for the Alumni Dinner at the Chateau Laurier - which was packed, and well sprinkled with dignitaries - but had time the next morning to meet some of our MPs, bearing NQs and calendars. (And, because we had to sign in and be processed for each office visit, we got to hang out with the security guards a bit, too.)

Bright lights along the Rideau

Plan is we'll be in Ottawa this Thursday night, set up at the Chateau Laurier for the MUN Alumni Affinity Dinner, maybe we'll see you there? We have magazines and other nifty giveaways, plus it seems a good time to introduce ourselves at the NL MPs, so Parliament Hill here we come.

Our deadline Monday

OK, their schedule was a little tighter than ours - we've got seven days until our material for the Winter issue is due - and our fashion sense hasn't kept up - those suits! her hat! - but the principle is the same. File, edit, print.

Seeking a Fair Before December

Just after we posted last week, we learned the Craft Fair in Corner Brook has been canceled. We'll still try to get out there, and we'll be contacting all our subscribers and gift givers by phone and email - but the Fair is such a great way to meet everyone, we're still hoping some alternative can be arranged.

A flying stop in Ottawa

On the eve of the Corner Brook Craft Fair (Nov. 2-4, Pepsi Centre) the NQ's scheduled for an appearance at the MUN Alumni dinner, Chateau Laurier. We'll have complimentary magazines and bookmarks, and a nifty poster. We're looking forward to a nice evening (and a mad rush to the airport - but hey, isn't everyone busy this time of year?).
