Changing Hands 2023- A Craft DeStash Sale

Manitoba Craft Council and Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library are excited to present

Changing Hands 2023: A Craft DeStash Sale set to take place on Sunday, October 15, 2023 at the C2 Centre for Craft from 12 – 4pm.

This event is a sale of pre-loved, hand-crafted items and craft materials, tools and supplies all in support of the C2 Centre for Craft and our ongoing activities to promote local craft!

What kinds of things will I find at the sale? 

-Hand-crafted and crafty treasures of all kinds!

-Beloved hand-made items that folks wish to re-home… those beautiful ceramic wine goblets received as a housewarming gift but never used, the fabulous earrings that just weren’t her style, the knit sweater he grew out of…

-Craft tools, materials, and supplies… the rigid heddle loom bought on impulse, that spare wood carving set, ten balls of gorgeous wool for the afghan that never got knit up…

Vintage Fabric – MCML has six pieces of vintage fabric for sale, woven by Marion Martin in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  This is a rare opportunity to purchase quality, hand woven fabric, in large enough quantities for making garments or other significant pieces.  Details about the fabric are available here.

Any donated items not sold as part of this fundraiser may be retained by MCC/MCML for future events or will be donated to Arts Junction or a charitable thrift store, as appropriate and at the discretion of the event organizers.
