Empty Bowls 2019
UPDATE AUGUST 19 Oh gosh! Time has flown by this wet dreary summer, and it’s been busy at the guild…we’re swimming in bowls, beautiful bowls, bowls of all shapes and colours. August 29th is not very far away now, so make sure you mark it on your calendar, put it in your phone, tablet – whatever you use to remind yourself of important things to do!
We’ll be at the Farmers Market on August 29th from 4:30 until we sell out, best selection is getting there right at 4:30…but we can’t start selling until the Horn is blown! Hope to see you there, and thank you for supporting the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank.
Our soup partner this year is the spectacular Souptacular – we’ve been giving away their soups for the past 2 events, and this year they are our major soup contributor. Each bowl is still only $10, and when you purchase 2 bowls you will get one mouth wateringly delicious bag of Souptacular soup.
We are soooo very pleased to bring another Empty Bowls Event to Fort Saskatchewan! We’ve changed things up a bit, but our goal is still the same – raise funds for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank. Our bowl goal this year is 300 bowls – that’s a 50% increase from last year!!!and we’re well on our way to meeting that goal.
We’re still at the Farmers Market, still at the same location at the market, but we decided to go a little earlier this year – enough with the rain, snow, sleet and freezing temperatures like previous years! (Although this year may prove to be just as chilly). We’ve moved the date up to August 29th, the last Farmer’s Market in August, and we’re crossing our fingers AND toes that the weather cooperates….
So come back for some pictures later this week – there’s a whole whack of pretty sweet bowls already finished up, and more in the kiln.
Hope to see you at the Market in August!!! Come out and support your local food bank and take home some beautiful locally handcrafted bowls.
