The Celebration of Arts and Crafts is an annual gathering of the heritage craft guilds to promote the continuation of the work that our forefathers and mothers introduced to make items that we now take for granted or are disappearing from our generation. SCACA is helping to secure these crafts for the future by introducing them to new generations of crafters and to assist those that are trying to become more adept at their chosen craft. We are also bringing back some crafts that have come around again or introducing some new ones. There is always something new to see and do in the craft world. And once you learn the craft we also have our vendors who can supply the raw materials to make your project. We are not a craft show as you know it!!!!! We want you to learn how to make your own crafts and then see the vendors to purchase your materials. Not purchase something finished!

From the Canadian Encyclopedia:
A hooked rug is made by pulling loops of yarn or rag strips up through a loosely woven foundation cloth, usually burlap, using a tool like a crochet hook. Eventually, these loops of different kinds of material in a variety of colours create a design - pictorial, floral or geometric - which covers the whole foundation and forms a sturdy mat.

I first started macrame back in the 70’s, making plant hangers! It’s just been the last year and a half that I saw that macrame was coming back and I started up again. I have taught classes at my local yarn store in Wasaga Beach and attended a few craft shows in my region. Macrame has come a long way since the 70’s and new patterns are being created daily. I would love to share this craft to anyone who is interested in making a beautiful handcrafted piece.
